For me one of the most pleasing aspects of looking at the stats that WordPress supplies is seeing how visitors have trawled through the archive and apparently enjoyed articles that I posted many months ago. I do try to be mindful of this when writing, attempting to make pieces timeless and almost as interesting in a year’s time as this week. Indeed many articles focus on videos of speeches that were already pretty historic when I addressed them.
However, sometimes when I go to look at old postings myself I find that the video in question no longer exists – for instance all the Oxford Union videos were unavailable for some months before being reinstated. And sometimes when that happens I am able to find another copy of the same speech somewhere else, and therefore can fill the empty space.
There are already a little more than 200 postings in the archive, and I simply do not have time to monitor them all. So I am asking your assistance. If you happen upon a posting whose video is unavailable please go to the contact page and let me know.
It doesn’t need much – e.g. –
Hi Brian, Albert Funnyface talking about Penguin Legs – no video. regards Sam
– would be more than enough for me to go there and try and sort it.
That would be really helpful, thanks –
