Mr. Brown

Yesterday, when I was commenting on the Asian Blog Awards procedures, I asked aloud why Popagandhi was lagging so far behind Mr. Brown?

Being new to Singapore, I was unaware of Mr. Brown’s popularity, and after reading through it more carefully, I want to apologize if I sounded at all deprecatory. It’s a sweet site that sort of reminds me of a Singapore version of Big White Guy. So again, sorry for speaking too soon.

(Popagandhi is still more my type of blog, but variety is the spice of life.)

I think you underline the point Richard – there are far more sites out there than any of us are aware of. Personally I feel my world has been expanded considerably.

Good point. I would never, ever have heard of Mr Brown or Xiaxue otherwise.
