    That's quite a day! Can I make one suggestion, though? Why don't you get someone on your team to check that all of the links in your emails are working? I think your time could be better spent!

    Thanks for that - its not actually about checking the links work per se - its more editorially looking at the feedback, seeing what's popular, any other suggestions, anything people disagree with sort of "keeping on top of the content" - its really important to me as it helps let me know what people want and dont want from MSE :)

    I love being busy and having lots to do but that would do me in...well done for not going totally insane with all that activity. For me, a good day involves having a shower before midday (unless I'm going out beforehand).

    Aww, all that and you had to get your own tea too. That's unless Mrs MSE was out at the chippie! :D

    Amazing how all this technology enables lifestyles we could never have dreamed of even 20 years ago. Trouble is, there's really no escape these days.
    :D I haven't bogged off yet, and I ain't no babe :D

    In a word.....PHEW!!!!!!!
  • That really shocked me. Hubby was asking about this site yesterday and asked what full time job was if this site was to help people......I'm going to show him the blog later so he knows!!!

    Just so you know Martin, even if each article/interview/item you do just helps one person (which we know it helps more!) then that's alot of good karma coming back to you!!!
