National Geographic Weekend

4 Jan

Happy New Year!

In an all too familiar style I’ve been useless at blogging recently. So as it’s the new year I will make no false promises. I don’t promise to blog every day or to do anything like that. I do, however, hope to continue this blog in some form or another. So do please keep checking back.

It would have been far more apt at the end of 2011, but I did want to quickly mention the interview I recorded with National Geographic Weekend – a fantastic radio programme coming out of Washington DC. Don’t worry, you can also listen online – It was great fun chatting with Boyd Matson and you can listen to me squirm and mumble through my time on the other side of the microphone here… if you like!

It’s a great fantastic programme. Please follow National Geographic Weekend on twitter too


2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,300 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 38 trips to carry that many people.
