I am going to start posting links that I find invaluable or fascinating. But rather than simply slapping in a number of links, I will introduce them one by one and explain why I love them. Starting with today’s Diamond Geezer blog. This is the only blog I visit every day, and here’s why:
Diamond Geezer posts almost every day. Every post is well written and interesting. He puts in real effort, which is why this is increasingly recognised as the best London focused blog. His fascination for London, and particularly its hidden depths and places, is infectious.
Every so often Diamond Geezer visits a Random London Borough. This month its Croydon. Imagine: this guy actually treks out to New Addington in January so that you don’t have to! But if you read his blog, you may want to at least make a flying visit.
His other interests include the Olympics, London buses and the railways of London, as well as apparently unrelated issues such as Top 10 Records. Every so often he does something eccentric like trying to follow the Greenwich Meridian through London as closely as possible. He keeps a close and positive watch on the Olympic Park.
Oh, and all of his visits are made by foot or public transport.
