Qatarperegrine's Greatest Hits!

I recently pointed someone at my blog and then realized that it's actually rather difficult to find interesting content here, amid the fluff of links to Peninsula articles. Relatedly, sometimes I try to refer back to an old blog post and am stymied by the uselessness of Livejournal's search function. So, I spent a little time this afternoon tagging old posts.

The favorites tag now takes you to my 35 favorite blog posts, from the FAQ I posted about Qatar before I even moved there in 2004 to my list of what I thought I'd miss when I moved back in 2010. If for some reason you stumble across this blog and want to find out what I had to say about living in Qatar, that's probably a good place to start.
