First the apology: Hit the North regrets being so quiet of late.
The silence is due to a complex mix of professional and personal issues, some of which I may share over weeks to come.
One major reason why I was heavily engaged elswhere was a two-month contract to be the Lake District expert for the travel website Simonseeks. You can read my introductory profile here.
Simonseeks attracted its fair share of critics and the recent decision to pull the financial backing was no surprise for some commentators. Follow the discussion here.
I hadn’t quite finished the assignment when I received an email with the bad news. I’ve since learnt that Simonseeks may not be dead and buried after all. More about that here.
Whatever happens, it’s now time to move on – and in lots of ways.
Normal service resumes in June.
Please come along for the ride.
