number 10 gif

We started blogging here more than ten years ago.

10!

Our first post went live on September 12, 2008 (you can have a read of it here if you'd like) and at that time, blogging was a relatively new platform and one we thought we would use to keep in touch with far flung family and friends. We quickly realised the website had to have a definite focus, and while others have thrived with a mix of personal and impersonal posts, we decided to focus on the things we loved.

2018 was a quiet year as we faced personal as well as professional challenges and we apologise for the dearth of posts. We are working on bringing the blog to life which is exciting and exhausting in equal measures. We used to pride ourselves on the fact that we would post on a daily basis and while our plan is to continue in 2019 we will probably do so on a scaled back schedule, at least initially. As we gear up to return, we are struck by the number of first-gen bloggers and online magazines like Design*Sponge that are also slowing or winding down, not to mention the recent layoffs at behemoths like BuzzFeed and The Huffington Post, all signalling a shift in the electronic publishing sphere.

Thousands of posts and hundreds of thousands of views later, we hope you'll stay with us on this journey for however long it continues and wherever it may lead.
