I realized that when I was first contemplating moving to Alaska, I was frustrated by the lack of information about living here. I found a few blogs, but most of them weren't exactly a good fit-- either they blogged about their personal lives and Alaska was just sort of incidental,, or they were real estate-based blogs designed to sell you on how great it is to live in Alaska, or they blogged about life in Alaska but they live in a more rural community where things aren't the same as they are in Anchorage. So I decided I would start blogging more about life in Anchorage, from the mundane (like restaurant and local business reviews) to the more interesting (like Anchorage's unique winter and wildlife situations), to anything else that sparks my interest enough to write about. I will refrain from blogging about the legal community, because that's just a bad idea waiting to unravel before my eyes, though it's tempting. I will say that on the whole I find the legal community in Anchorage to be competent, professional, and easy to work with, which is more than I can say for the legal community in other places I've worked. But I digress. The point is, I'm going to try to blog more about living in Anchorage from an outsider's perspective, with the hopes that people who are thinking about moving to Alaska will find it and hopefully it will help them make a more informed decision.
So, what do you want to hear about first?
