What e-mail tips can you offer? You are definitely asking the wrong person, I’m useless at replying to e-mail! How do you manage your “to-do” lists? Do you use any special software to help you out? I use the reminders on my iPhone; that’s about as organized as I get! How much time do you devote to SEO and/or social networking in order to drive more traffic to your sites?

Getting quality con- tent that’s engaging and informative. Also, it can sometimes be hard getting all your ideas out within a sufficient time frame. What’s the best thing about running your sites?

If you could invite any five people, living or dead, to dinner, who would they be? Stephen Fry, Michael Jackson, Lee Evans, David Mitchell. I can’t really think of any more. I don’t think I would invite them at the same time, though, as it would be chaos! Stephen Fry because I just think he is so interesting and so knowledgeable on so many subjects. Michael Jackson to find out what he is really like, as every story about him seems to contradict another. Lee Evans because he is hilarious and David Mitchell because I love his rants!
