So several months ago we made a half-hearted attempt to set one up and customise it to suit our branding - but we approached it in the wrong way, the branding process became too complex, and inevitably the blog never even got off the ground.

Would you be surprised to learn that it contributes to a beast that generates about the same amount of carbon emissions as the entire aviation industry?
