As our small group of regulars will probably have realised, we’re currently on holiday. Natalie is in Austin living the high life at the SXSW Festival, and I’m a bit busy with other stuff, so will let this lie until I can get back into gear, and give it the amount of time it deserves (probably April).

We’d initially set-up the page as proof-of-concept demo, just to show to a couple of other people to see if they might be interested in helping out. There’s probably still a fair bit of work required to get it to a state that’s as functional as the ‘ist’ sites we’ve modelled it on (gothamist, londonist, etc.), including a shift to a proper hosted domain, and probably switching over to movable type so we can get all the ‘categories’ functionality that blogger/blogspot is currently lacking. We shall see though, all that costs money, and the finances are pretty much non-existent at the moment. In fact, if anyone who wants to buy shares in the Wellingtonist, feel free to get in touch!

Likewise, any suggestions for content, features, welly blogs we’ve overlooked in our blogroll, or anything are always welcome. Just leave a comment, or email.

See you soon…
