You wake up, unable to remember how you got here...

If you were dropped in a random place in the world, how long would it take you to figure out where you are?
That basically what Geoguessr does.
Using Google street view you can look around and then drop a pin on the map and get points for how accurate your prediction was.
It's a fun little game and a great way to add some random exploration into your life.
It's also the spark for our creative challenge this week.
Random Map adventure
You could use geogessr but you need an account for the full street view, so I recommend using map crunch. Get a random location and use it as the inspiration for some writing, music or picture.
You might notice an object or be inspired by the location. What emotions does it stir? What does it remind you of? How does it connect with other topics you are interested in?
My Blog posts
In the last year and a bit a few friends have started sending newsletter using either Substack or Ghost.
Both offer a similar service with the option to restrict some or no content and provide the rest for free.Yesterday I realised that the same effect could be created using WordPress and at a very affordable rate.
Disclaimer: This is not a full like for like replacement for linktree in WordPress, but it can satisfy many people’s needs.
The first “Link in bio” like service I came across was Linktree, a tool to help you get around Instagram’s single link limit and instead direct people to multiple sites.
- Why people believe they can’t draw - and how to prove they can — TEDxHull
- Do orchestras really need conductors - NPR
- Screw motivation, what you need is discipline.
I've run this newsletter for almost two years now (on and off) and I have heard some very kind words from a couple of people. I'd love to get both some feedback into what you like and some quotes that I could share to people considering subscribing.
So I'd love it if you just replied and share what you'd tell someone considering subscribing to this newsletter. (or what you like about it).
