As you've probably guessed by now, my name is Simon Jones.
I'm not going to bore you with the usual trite information that you
might expect to find on a personal home page. Instead I'm simply going
to offer you a collection of links to personal websites I've created
over time and allow you to explore them.
Before i Forget (Blog)
This is my
blog. Here you'll be able to read regular posts I make on a
wide range of subjects as well as recent photographs from my travels.
You can leave comments as you please and also search the archive
which dates back to 1997.
366 Pictures (2016 photoblog)
A single picture along with a story from every single day in 2016! It's a huge project that will involve a lot of travel and talking to strangers! Join me as I go through the year at 366pictures.com
366 Pictures (2012 photoblog)
In 2012 I was 'on the road' travelling from New Zealand, to Australia, through Asia, into Europe, then over to Canada and the USA before making a stop in Fiji on my way back to New Zealand. I travelled to 20 countries publishing a single and picture and story from each of the 366 days in that year.
5 Minutes of Somewhere (Podcast)
In 2017 I'll be launching a new podcast called '5 minutes of somewhere' about the symphonies of sound that surround us all. You can hear a taster on soundcloud.
Started back in 1997 when I was working at the University of Liverpool, this is an online collection of articles written by me simply because I wanted to write. Originally known as 'Meanwhile Back in Reality' the name was shorted to 'Meanwhile' when I took up writing again after a short break.
This is a little
website I created
back in 2002 while on a train from Seattle
It was simply a way I could
from my trip to the USA with my friends
around the world.
Reality Radio (Podcasts)
In 1999 I took
a hand held tape recorder to the States in order to capture some sound
bites from my trip as I couldn't
afford a video camera at the time! I ended
up creating this site and some 'MTV'
style radio shorts for my friends to listen to online, shows that would these
days be called 'Podcasts.'
Inspired by the site above I continued
making 'Reality Radio podcast shows for a while. A second series in
America was recorded as well as other shows covering various events like an eclipse, a road trip to Paris, and a wedding in Ireland.
People often ask me what I look like, so to satisfy the kind of curiosity that cats fear, I created a little page featuring a few pictures of me. They date from 1996 to the present
Although it should be obvious, much of what you read on any of my websites is based upon my personal opinion and experience which may of course differ from your own. So, for example, if I write something about politics or church that you don't agree with,
you should view this as merely a journalistic expression and while you're
welcome to contact me you might try to remember that diversity is a good thing.
