2014’s Side Projects

2014 has been a good year for my side projects, I’ve not started anything new but have spent time to refine my existing ones.

Love Shrewsbury

The Love Shrewsbury site has been the most time consuming side project over the past twelve months however its also been the most rewarding. The site has reached over 100,000 people and has been expanded to include local offers. I have developments in the new year for an expanded what’s on section and possibly a directory. The April Fool’s post was particularly successful with 10,000 hits over 2 days.

Switchweb

Switchweb continues to provide the infrastructure for many of my other activities though new hosting sales have been slow in 2014. I’m hoping to rectify this in the coming months, pushing the relaunched site with a series of press releases.

ShropGeek

We ran our second (R)Evolution conference in September, the full day web event was another big success and I’m looking forward to planning events for 2015.

ImAFish

ImAFish continues to attract sponsored posts and advertising and has been a consistent money maker in 2014.

Photography

I’ve done a lot less landscape photography in the past year, though I got some nice photos in Scotland. It turns out I have a very photogenic son and if you ask any of my Instagram or Facebook followers you will know I take a look of photos of him!

Thanks to everyone who has helped and supported my side projects in the past year, I’m looking forward to 2015.
