If there’s one thing I hate about blogging, then there’s probably a bunch of other things too. My main bugbear is the continual need for new content. Blogs are hungry beasts. Much of what gets written is ephemeral and has a short shelf, no matter how much time you spent on it. With that in mind, I planned a series of ‘best of graffiti living’ posts with curated links to evergreen content from the archives on particular themes. Then I read my blog and realised that most of it was shit.

Luckily, I have no shame. Here is a complete easy to read overview of the blog’s archives, warts and all. Read it, before I change my mind. The content’s ordered by theme / type of post with back links to each post. If you like specific posts, please comment on them. If you’d love to read more of a particular type of post, or there’s anything else you want to see, please comment here. Honest feedback and constructive criticism is always welcome. So, please let me know what you think.
