My day in numbers

2637 - is the number of junk emails I've had since this time yesterday 28 - is the number of real emails I have to answer today 416 - is the number of images I had to manually place in InDesign yesterday 1 - is the number of Christmas books I have sent to the printer 1 - is also the number of teeth that I currently have a slight toothache in 1 - is also the number of boats that have just been towed past my window. Odd. 6 - is the number of Christmas books I have to send to the printer by tomorrow 85% - or thereabouts is the likelihood of that happening. 15 - is the number of requests I've had for a review copy of City Cycling and I haven't even written a press release yet 25 - is the total number of books ordered from our website so far since I put the google checkout buttons on. A modest start, but a start nonetheless 8,4,7,8,2,2,7,4,10,5,1 is the number of tasks I have in the categories of Book production, Editorial, Finance, IT, PR, Print, Sales, Design services, Strategy/process, Suppliers, UK Reviewers. 8 is the number of manuscripts I have to read (because lovely Anna reads most of them) 3 is the number of cheques that should clear today 5 is the number of days until month end = money in from LBS (the following week)! 2 is the number of coffees I've had so far. 1 is the number of coffees I'm going to go and get now. 10, on a scale of 1-10, is how excited I am about the upcoming day. Nothing particularly special happening but, I tell you, it's *bloody lovely* to have your own company.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
