Oh No… Mr. Bill!!!! It seems I’m not getting as many hits at NOLA.com when Mr. Bill gets top “billing” (pun intended) on the featured blogs page. Dang folks, I’m trying to break in to NOLA.com and the local scene as a positive mouthpiece for the area. Help me out here will ya? I can’t do this alone anymore!!! A blog is grassroots PR – I love my new home and am trying to shout that sentiment out to anybody who will listen.

Questions of the day:
If you weren’t already here…would you move here?
If you don’t live here, would you consider moving here?

cross posted at NOLA.com – somewhere. See if you can find my blog under 5 minutes. It is harder to find than a reliable contractor in the area!

  1. I would move here because my roots are here. I was born and raised in Louisiana and I like to call my self a Louisiana Woman.

    There is not anyplace anywhere that compares to this area. There is no food that can compare to what we serve at every street either.

    Now New Orleans is another subject. I saw the news last night how this one woman can hardly pay her bills because of her high electric bill that runs about $500.00. I would die if I had to pay a $500.00 electric bill every month, and I am positive that are many others that would like to move home, but here about the high cost of electricity there, and decide to not move. It is ahame.

    Last, this is my very first response to a post here. I love your website and your creatitiviy that you bring to it.

    I wish you luck!

  2. Girl, I am glad you asked, “If you weren’t already here…would you move here?” If I didn’t know what I have learned about this place in the 3 years that I have lived here, I would say No Way! I would be pretty skeptical. Everytime I hear stories of people moving here so soon after the storm I am amazed that they did it. I remember two people moving to work for my husband within a month or two after Katrina and moving to neighborhoods across the lake and thinking nothing of it. I was impressed of their open-mindness and fearlessness. Especially since they came from so far away.

    That said, I moved here in April 2004 and love it. My mom often asks why? What is it about this place? And I find myself struggling to answer it in a way that she would understand. I love reading your blog to compare feelings about this place. It is special. It lacks many things, but makes up for that in what it offers in uniqueness. I read one of your first blogs about the people makte this place and I know what you mean. I wish I could be more eloquent in my explanation but I find it difficult to describe. So I will continue to read your blog and maybe you can help me come up with a great way to describe our great place to live! Welcome to the northshore!

  3. Greta, I want to comment at the NOLA blog but I can’t! 🙁
    That’s OK, ’cause I know where to find you here, but I’d like to chat over there, too! I guess I’ll get it straight eventually–at this point I can’t even remember why I can’t.

    And you know what? Your love for the North Shore and greater “Nawlins” area definitely shows! I don’t blame you a bit–I fell in love with Mandeville just in one weekend there! Those who haven’t been to NOLA simply don’t understand it until they’ve experienced it. 🙂

  4. I am currently looking to relocate to NOLA. I had never been in LA prior to Katrina so I really didnt know what to expect. I went last year 06 for jazz fest and my boyfriend spent alot of time playing with a band that was separated because of the storm. We are currently Massuchusett residence but since my visit and his time spent there we have decided that this would be a great location for us. We are looking to fully experience NOLA living by moving to french quarter, mid city or uptown. Do you think this is a good place to live? We are a young couple, he is a musician and I am a behavioral therapist. We really want to make a difference in the city by bringing a fresh out look and new energy. We loved New Orleans because of its culture and music scene. I hope that we will be welcomed as a newbie!!

    PS I love your site…great insight and positive influence for the city.
