Musing on gardening and life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
1. Create advertisement2. Decide to place it in Chippenham, where it's quicker to drive to Newquay than go by air3. Wait for a Blogger with a camera to spot it at the local train station4. Et voila!
Click here for a further example ;)
surely Newquay is nearer to Chippenham than Gatwick is?Well actually no - according to my route-planner Ch-Nq is 192 miles; Ch-Gat is 117 miles but Gat-Nq is 297 miles so Ch-Nq via Gat is 414 miles.
Quite - it's very silly isn't it!
And the air advert at the local train station as well!
They should pay you a percentage; D
It's just plain daft Liz. The travel to Gatwick+flight time and the quickest train journey are about the same time, so the airline must be targetting on price rather than convenience!As for a percentage, I don't think they'd like my cynical take on it Nessa ;)
Hi, let's start a conversation - right here, right now! I love reading your comments and thoughts about my blog :)If anyone is having problems leaving comments, you can contact me on vegplotting at gmail dot com or @malvernmeet if a quick tweet is more convenient for you. That way I can get things sorted.Thanks xxxMy general policy re commentsI value genuine commenters for the conversation they bring. Those aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites (thankfully rare) will be removed.Blog posts are kept open for your Comments for as long as possible - for at least 3 months. I've reluctantly taken the decision if a post comes in for a sp@m attack after that time, I'll remove its Comments facility. I've found genuine comments are rarely left after 3 months, but dozens of sp@m comments are :( Removing these takes away the joy that a genuine comment might be left one day.
