I’m quite surprised I managed to stick at it for this long; in the past my sites have only lasted a few months before I got bored. In the case of The Other Side of The River I’ve managed to post every week and I’ve proven to myself that I can drive traffic off the back of my own content.
It’s been quite a ride. I was shat on in Paris, mugged by an Indian Holy Man, risked liable in the name of satire, annoyed aging politicians, been reduced to fanboy incoherence, tried to pick a fight with Orlando Bloom and bumped into Pulitzer prize winning authors. I’ve managed to get published a few times myself – including in a book – and I’ve made some new friends along the way.
And most importantly it’s fun – that’s why I’m still doing it.
