While we did not post as much content as last year 29 posts vs 31 in 2018. You might be surprised but it is actually pretty difficult to come up with content as often as we I blog! Though I still try and stick to my goal.
Mi Jung and I moved to Gunsan in February of last year, and have been having a great time discovering things in and around our new location and we think it is great to finally have a car over here! See: Does anyone really like moving? New beginnings in Gunsan-si.
We have visited the Green Tea Fields of Boseong! See: Out And About In Korea – Boseong Tea Fields and Nokcha Green Tea Fields Resort.
Mi Jung has discovered she likes camping! See: Out And About In Korea – Camping Near Kunsan – Part 1: Camping at Seonyudo Beach
I finally was able to photograph the closed amusement park in Seoul called Yongmaland. See: Out And About In Korea – Yongmaland (Photographing a closed amusement park).
We reviews several really good Korean films, such as Christmas In August, and even visited the site were it was filmed here in Gunsan. See: Korean Movie Review – Christmas In August.
We have discovered some great restaurants, such as Chico’s Mexican Restaurant, and Oliveta’s Italian Food! See: Gunsan Mexican Food – Chico’s Mexican Restaurant.
We have posted some great gear reviews such as Holga HL-C Lens – Bad In A Good Way? Or Just Bad?, and The Battle Of The 85mm Primes – Canon EF 85mm f1.8 vs Samyang 85mm f1.4.
We have posted some great technical blogs, such as WiFi Pairing The Canon 5D Mark IV.
So, after such a great year, where do we go from here?! There will be several major changes coming to Brent’s World in the coming year. The biggest change will be the planned upgrade of the web servers OS from CentOS 7, which we have been running since 2015 to CentOS 8! While the application server is being upgraded we will be looking at changing the way the blog looks. I have for a long time wanted to make the 4 main blog topics individual tabs, and the articles organized under the tabs. While only the most recent blog stays on the landing page. I feel this will make it much easier to browse content you are looking for.
Once the main project has been completed, we may look into other features for Brent’s World! So please keep visiting Brent’s World throughout 2020! If you wish to be notified by email when new content is posted. Please consider registering by clicking HERE!
