My local wonders and blunders

Living as I do in the social media capital that is SE London, I'm never that far from a top-draw hyperlocal news site, community website or blog.

However, my own particular patch of the city has remained totally unblogged and so yesterday I decided to set up a new community site: The Kidbrooke Kite.

So far there's only a couple of starter posts over there, but I've got lots of other ideas for stories to investigate and personal gripes to whinge about in the coming weeks.

I'm also looking for others to get involved in the project so do please get in touch.

So if you live in the area or are just interested in finding out more, please head over to The Kidbrooke Kite and associated Twitter page and follow or subscribe.

Wonders and Blunders

A while back I asked my Twitter followers for their suggestions of their favourite and least favourite buildings in the capital.

I was overwhelmed with the number of responses and discovered quite a few gems (and horrors) that I had never come across before.

Well I've now chosen my own two least favourite and favourite buildings in London and you can read exactly what they are and why over at Building.co.uk.
