#hive15 – Welcome to Berlin!

April 9, 2015


Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great Easter. I’m back from my little break, and looking forward to ‘The Hive – a gathering of digital storytellers, tastemakers & bloggers’ which kicks off in Berlin tomorrow night. As the resident museologist among the Hive bloggers, I thought the opportunity to roll my ‘best of Berlin’ museum recommendations for anyone with a little extra time to spare in the city during their visit. Or anyone else visiting for other reasons too, of course! In this […]

40 Things About Me

March 19, 2015


Next month, I will be attending the conference ‘The Hive – a gathering of digital storytellers, tastemakers & bloggers’ in Berlin. Yvonne, who runs the conference which is now in its fourth year, has invited all attendees to take part in sharing ’40 Things About Me’. It’s taken me a while to gather mine together – 40 is quite a lot – but here they are. I hope you will indulge me, and perhaps finding out some new things about me :) And, since this […]

Confession time. Last Saturday was the ‘Lange Nacht der Museen‘ (Long Night of Museums) in Berlin and ‘Museums at Night’ in other countries too. Sunday was International Museums Day.

Instead, I was in Copenhagen attending ‘The Hive’ – the European blogging conference. Museums only really got a mention, if I was the one talking about them. I did, […]

As I mentioned last week, this past weekend The Hive European Blog Conference took place here in Berlin, and I was honoured to be one of the speakers. But first we kicked things off with a pre-conference visit on Friday to the Jewish Museum Berlin, which had kindly offered some free tickets to a small group of The Hive delegates. After some coffee and cake in the museum’s beautiful glass courtyard, we spent around 1.5 hours exploring the museum together from top to bottom. The […]

“Aren’t You Bored Yet?”

May 22, 2013


I’m super excited right now, because this is the week of The Hive – European Blog Conference. It took place in Berlin last year for the first time, and is making a repeat to Germany’s capital. I attended it last year too, but this year I actually get to give a presentation! So you can see why I am excited. I think it goes without saying that I’ll be speaking on the topic of being a museum blogger, though my presentation will also address some […]

Hello everyone, Museum Diary is back again after the winter holiday break, and although we’re already in to the second week of January it’s never too late to wish you all a Happy New Year! I hope you all have a great 2013 full of health, happiness and, of course, museums ;-) Before jumping head first in to the new year ahead I wanted to briefly reflect back on the year that was. This time last year, I was making the big resolution to find […]
