Our man in Tirana
Në shqip, unë do ta përktheja titullin e këtij blogu : “I yni në Tiranë” – bëhet fjalë për një të huaj në Tiranë I cili me blogun e tij, fillimisht të krijuar për miqtë e tij, zbuloi shqiptarë të tjerë, kryesisht jasht Shqipërisë, që interesoheshin për atdheun e tyre.
Një pjesë e intervisteë së tij dhënë tek selfmaderadio:
I originally started the blog to keep friends and family back home up to date with what I am doing here and what it is like here. I suppose those people were the original 'our' of the name. It seems though that over the months I have been doing this there has been a change in the audience. From the comments I get and from the tracker information I keep it seems that the majority of people reading the blog are Albanians - mostly expat Albanians. For them I am reluctant to consider myself 'our' man since I am a newcomer to this place. So I am not sure who I write for anymore. I think that I have changed the nature of the postings since I have come to realise that it is being read by Albanian expats - but not in a conscious way. I think it is just in the back of my mind as I think of things to write about. I have also tried to develop the title as my persona while here - partly for consistency and partly out of a desire to maintain general anonymity
