first post (despite evidence to the contrary)

Hello, all.

At the moment this blog is midway between being formulated and being actualised. My current blog, sugiharagami, has encountered numerous layout-related problems which I am unsure how to resolve, and I feel its title/theme is not wholly relevant to its content.

The title of this blog is a portmanteau of the words latitudes and platitude; the former being the geographical location of a place relative to the Equator, and the latter being a "trite, meaningless, biased or prosaic statement that is presented as if it were significant and original" (Wikipedia, 2010). The word is meant as a pun referring to the recurring theme of travel in my blogging and the stereotypical image that blogs are just a place for people to rant whatever is on their mind in a not particularly eloquent fashion.

I plan to move old posts from sugiharagami to this blog over the next few weeks, to put all new posts here, and to alter the layout to something a bit more aesthetically pleasing, so keep checking back.
