What to do with travel guides, pamphlets and brochures

If you’re like me you have dozens of travel guides, pamphlets and brochures cluttering up your house… Here’s some of mine… I’ve been storing them in a magazine rack with my small but growing collection of vinyls. I didn’t want to part with them as I do intend to visit all the places advertised in them at some point but I wanted them tidier and more easily accessible. My solution?

Online skeletons in my closet/computer

I’ve been going through my old files on my laptop lately as well as those on my ftp server and I’ve really accumulated a lot of, well, “junk” over the years! Haha! There are “palace dolls(z)”, various Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel wallpapers/”blends”, old graphics, i.e. pixels, “scribbles, “quotes” all reminiscent from when I owned a “dollie” site and also from my old Buffy the Vampire Slayer website that was once hosted on Geocities – good times. 🙂 I also found some files in Notepad, notes in fact, on blog ideas, unfinished blog posts etc. Here’s a snippet of a few Read More…
