tl;dr* – The Beauty of Transport is going fortnightly.
The long version:
I started The Beauty of Transport after I went freelance. Not only was it the blog I wanted to read, but realised no-one else seemed likely to write, but it was a good way of showing off my wares, and a handy way to fill in the gaps around the inevitably feast-or-famine nature of freelance work.
However, I’ve only gone and got myself a full time job again. As a result, I can’t at the moment see a way to keep writing The Beauty of Transport on a weekly basis, given the time it takes to research articles and find the illustrations. So for now, I’ve decided to try a fortnightly publication schedule to see how that works. I am sorry if that comes as a disappointment; it’s something of a disappointment to me, to be honest.
So what’s coming up? Next week is an article about tunnel portals. I’m heading for New York (NY) shortly for a holiday, and you know how I like to show you my holiday photos when I get back. I hope to go and see the Fulton Transit Center and the billion dollar boondoggle (a.k.a. The Oculus), so I’ll write those up too.
Don’t forget you can follow my Twitter feed (@danielhwright) for transport design and architecture tweets plus other random thoughts and things that interest me. If you’re a Facebook or LinkedIn user, The Beauty of Transport shares out to those platforms too when new articles are published, which will help ensure you don’t miss the articles which do appear. That’s at www.facebook.com/thebeautyoftransport; while at LinkedIn you just search for my name.
Here’s something from next week, by way of a trailer:
*It stands for “too long; didn’t read”. I’m just pretending to be on-board with online language usage.
