Our main sites
- Recycle This and Compost This
Our current flagship site (How Can I) Recycle This? aims to help people reuse and recycle random household objects in useful and creative ways. It’s had regular press coverage in The Times’ Eco Worrier column (so much so, Anna used to make fun of herself for linking to us so often) and has also been mentioned in other national newspapers including The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph. Internationally, we’re popular on the green website circuit and increasingly in DIY craft community.
- In the summer of 2006, Recycle This spawned sister site Compost This, which provides advice on material that can – and can’t – be composted. We hope to add another site to the *This green stable soon (but have, admittedly, been saying that for a while now).
- The Really Good Life
Building on a lot of the *This ideas and my own hippy interests, The Really Good Life blog was started in June 2010. It’s about living a good life – eating good food, having nice things – but without spending a lot of money or being wasteful.
- We Heart Drama
Still in its infancy following a spring 2011 birth, We Heart Drama is a collection of drama games, exercises, lesson plans and other related hoohah.
Long-standing celebrity news/gossip blog Fametastic was updated daily, throughout the day from 2005 to 2010. It covered news from both sides of the Atlantic and beyond, and was regularly linked from high profile news sources including the Washington Post (United States), AOL’s TMZ (United States), USA Today (United States), Perez Hilton (United States), Huffington Post (United States), BBC America (United States), Daily Rotten (United States), ABC (Australia) and The Age (Australia).
- Everybody Loves Eric Raymond
I helped write the incredibly geeky web comic Everybody Loves Eric Raymond with John (and others). It was pretty well known in the linux geek community for a while. It mostly bamboozled normal people.
Ukepedia is our fun but seldom-updated project in which we invited people to sing the text of Wikipedia articles while strumming a pretty tune on the ukelele. Yes, it’s silly but also creates some strangely beautiful songs.
- New World Odour
I have written satire for New World Odour in the past (and will again in the future if we kick some life back into it).
