As catchy as a blog name can be – that’s Boom-cat! for you. I didn’t have an inkling what the blog was about when I first saw the blog name – but that, I suppose, is part of its attraction. It turns out to be a personal blog with a sprinkling of insights into the life of a “college student turned entry-level employee in New York.”

There is a wide variety of topics covered in Boom-cat!, some of which are interesting and enjoyable while others are just plain difficult to read – or maybe I just don’t have the smarts to fully understand those posts. In any case, I still think that shorter posts – or at least chopped up entries – would make the blog a more enjoyable read.
