Come and join me in my new home online!

April 28, 2024

Hello, and happy last few hours of the weekend!

I haven’t posted for the longest time! And my first post back is a significant one as some changes are coming. Without holding out for too long, I want to start by saying that posting here over the last 11 years has always been the loveliest of jobs, I am so grateful to each and every reader, commenter and sharer who have enabled me to continue to sharing my ideas over on Design Soda. But, 18-months-ago, I began to loose focus around where I wanted the blog to move with me, and after a lull in posting due to some changing personal circumstances, I am looking forward to being back. You can expect to start receiving more regular posts again, they will be weekly, and expanding in scope to include new things too (without creating a drumroll, my first post later today will lay out my weekly article themes).

I have news though, things are going to look a little bit different because – I am moving house! Not physically, but online. The blog will remain open as it currently is, and I shall still post the odd update here, but all new articles will be published to my newsletter on Substack.

If you haven’t heard of Substack before, it is essentially a magazine curated by you, where you opt in to subscribe to the newsletters of people whose content interests you. There are lots of bestselling authors, well known journalists, public figures and experts, alongside a host of really interesting people you may not have come across before. I have been reading Substack for a long time, and am looking forward to posting my own content there.

I am so grateful to all of you who choose to subscribe to my blog, you will start to receive my articles more regularly again via the Substack email, and I am looking forward to connecting with you over on my new home. We can have fuller conversations via threads and I will be able to post things of interest that won’t disappear as quickly as an Instagram story.

The doors are open, the fire is lit (when will spring arrive?!), please do drop by and say hi!
