Based […]Read more "Illegal Jacks analytics case study 6 months on"
I’m not supposed to buy anything for myself between now and Christmas. As I’m so difficult to buy gifts for I’m not allowed to take away from that small pool of potential presents, except I just went and downloaded the Inception soundtrack…whoops. In my defence this is really all Spotify’s fault. Because I can’t buy […]Read more "As if Inception blowing my wasn’t enough now the soundtrack is too"
No I’m not kidding, I am actually the worst person to buy gifts for. It really doesn’t take much to make me happy and I have very few wants in life (none of which can be bought) which should actually make buying presents for me a breeze, I’m grateful to receive any kind of present […]Read more "I need help choosing a Christmas present for myself"

If I told you in the year 2000 there were an estimated […]Read more "Some weekend thoughts about social media"
It’s not quite what you’d imagine. If I personally didn’t know better I’d have presumed I was going off to some sort of stately home or camp to immerse myself in the ways of writing (for a reasonable fee naturally) in much the same way that people go on cooking holidays. In reality I’ve actually […]Read more "I’m on a writers holiday"
I make no secret of the fact my favourite TV show ever was The West Wing, it’s been awhile since I watched it so I thought I’d start again from the beginning. The show has a lot of moments that are truly great television but it wasn’t until this scene in season 4, called 20 […]Read more "Oh how I miss The West Wing"

Like many other people I absolutely love reading and the opportunity it gives you to immerse yourself in a totally different world. The Harry Potter books are some of my favourites as I quite literally grew up reading them and could identify with the main characters as they left childhood behind and became adults. I […]Read more "How do you introduce someone to a much loved franchise?"
