Welcome to the Berlin Review

Welcome to the Berlin Review, a new Berlin blog in English that will post on a wide variety of topics related to this fine city and what goes on here. Hopefully you will find the information useful and the opinions interesting...if we get things wrong well, with regards info let us know so we can make the correct adjustments, with regards opinion, mouth off in the comments section. After all, that's the beauty of blogs, right?

The blog is in English, and as such we will attempt to link only to news articles, blogs or other websites that are the same. Unless we really like them, or there is no other option.

The format for how we do this has not quite been decided as we are taking things as they come, and always looking to make things better, but if you find the blog useful and have some suggestions then let us know. Also, if you have a blog about Berlin make sure you tell us so we can add you to the 'Blogs We Like' list.

The person writing this is P., who will be joined by friends from time to time in order to bring other views or expertise to the whole enterprise, and if you want to contact me then you can do so at

BTW - sometimes we will post upcoming events or exhibitions or something like that. We will try to be accurate but posting might sometimes be hampered by alcohol. If a gig or a film or an exhibition takes your fancy, check with the organisers to make sure everythings a-ok.

Oh great!! Another blog about Berlin in English. Excellent stuff, welcome aboard. I look forward to reading more. Thanks for the link, btw. It's always nice to see one's name up in lights.

Hey, what happened to Berlinguide? Did you decide to consolidate it all into one after all?

BTW, any chance you might add either Haloscan's trackback feature, or enable Blogger's backlink feature. I get the feeling I'm going to want to trackback to you more than once.

I'm still planning to do the Berlin Guide blog, but this is the first time I have ever had a blog, and I wanted to do at least one justice before I get involved in a second one.

I'm planning on some 'Best Of..' posts like the one on English Bookshops that I will stick in the sidebar, and then when the motivation comes for more detailed Guide-type entries I'll get the Berlin Guide going...

Just did it with blogger.

Is that what you mean?

Like I said, I'm new to this...

Yup, that was what I was after. Thanks. You can expect you first link later this evening. One more request, is there any chance that while you are posting so much at the beginning while things are fresh, you could have a few more posts on the front page? Since you don't yet have many graphics or external links in your sidebar, it's still quick to load, and it would just mean not having to trawl back through the archives quite so often for those of us who can only stop by every couple of days. Once things slow down, as they are bound to, you can switch it back, but just while things are moving so fast. Just a thought.
