January – Plans for the New Year

BTP Liam and Joe wish you a very happy and healthy new year. In 2014, Beyond the Point probably found itself establishing the high quality of content it holds today. Joe’s television-quality video equipment was firmly introduced to make our documentaries as professional as possible. Liam has focused on ensuring a high quality of presentation of our photographs and articles. The top menu bar on the website has seen drastic improvement, with a ‘News’ and ‘General History’ bar added, as well as others in the ‘More BTP section’ ensuring modernisation of all our past content, via ensuring it can be accessed readily. Likewise, the ‘Local Heritage’ section, which is pivotal to our site, has been filled out as it lay with many sections blank for quite some time, as well many of our visits now receiving a place on the main website. We also welcomed the introduction of ‘iBTP’ late in 2014 which enables you to discover first hand for yourselves (visit the ‘Interactive Map’ and keep your eyes peeled for later today).

Regarding the future of the BTP boys, we have a prosperous year ahead. Joe will be taking up a lifetime-opportunity apprenticeship at ITN in January, to further his media expertise developed to a professional-level via trial and error in his time at Beyond the Point, and more recently at Canvey Island Football Club where he held the position of Video Content Manager, creating and running their YouTube Channel. He also passed his driving test and got a car recently, meaning Beyond the Point will be able to have more trips to further locations during the next year. We celebrated this yesterday by taking a drive to visiting the site of our very first explore, which was responsible for the creation of BTP months later in 2011. Myself (Liam) will be finishing my A-levels up to completion of the exams in May, and afterwards I hope I will have time for many exciting explores, tours, and more for the website, when I will have a very long Summer holiday indeed! In September I will be moving away and taking a History degree at University where I can further my fascination from BTP, focusing it on areas of interest relevant to the environment that surrounds me today.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for BeyondthePoint.co.uk.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 48,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 18 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
