I’ve Moved to David McBloglin!

Dear Friends, this is my last post on New York Peristalsis! I’ve recently found that the scope of this blog hasn’t been wide enough for what I want to do, and so I’ve created a new WordPress blog over at


I want to be free to write about many more things than living in New York City, and so this new blog offers me that possibility. (Although you know that NYC Peristalsis was about more than just this city, the blog title corralled me into that sphere.) This will be an author’s blog, with a lot more. If you are ever looking to revisit posts from the old blog, worry not! David McBloglin has a category called all “New York Peristalsis: About New York”. All you will have to do is click on that Category link, and all the humorously-complainy posts about living here will be available for your perusing pleasure. The other categories include:

  • Activism Against Sexual Abuse
  • Travel, Home and Other Places
  • Writing and Poetry.

As you can see, it’s easy to navigate. If, over the years, you’ve followed this blog via WordPress Follow or if you’ve subscribed via email, it would be great if you could go to my new blog to do the same.

Thanks so much for reading, and for your support since my first post in September 2010. Let’s not say goodbye: the conversation continues over at:


All the best, David

My name is David McLoghlin, I am the author of "Waiting for Saint Brendan and Other Poems" (Salmon Poetry, July 2012); I am an Irish poet, writer and literary translator, who currently lives in New York, and blogs about its vicissitudes, while not writing other things, like my 2nd collection. I moved to NYC in 2010 to study at NYU's MFA Program in Creative Writing, from which I graduated in 2012, two months before my book was published. Before moving to the US, I lived in Ireland, Spain, Belgium, France, the USA, and travelled in a variety of countries (including Morocco, Czechoslovakia (when it was that country), Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina and Norway), whilst engaged in a number of pursuits. Newyorkperistalsis.wordpress.com came about as a catch-all for impressions related to moving to NYC alone: culture shock, in essence, and all her ugly sisters.
