A year ago, CTR died. After working on it endlessly for a year it became too much of a time sink and we weren’t able to continue it. Since then, circumstances have changed, lives have evolved, and I’m in a position where I am able to revive the site.
Like a phoenix from the ashes, we’ve done a bit of refurbishing in the downtime. Web design has moved on , times have changed, and we’ve had to bring the site up to date with the new design and branding. Just like before, it’s been a completely home-grown effort with Pete’s tech wizardry covering up the holes in my novice design skills.
Our content priorities have changed too, and we will be focusing on creating original and exclusive content a lot more heavily than in the past. We aim to move from content curation to content creation, and place a bigger emphasis on putting our creative talent to good use. Of course, we’ll still be bringing you the best of the web, but hopefully with a unique CTR flavour on top!
All of these ambitions wouldn’t be possible without bringing in a wider team to help, so the CTR team has expanded to support our expansion. You can read more about everyone on the about page, but here’s a snapshot of some of the people involved.
We also have a wide network of writers and photographers we will be working with time to time, bringing you some of the best creative talents the UK has to offer.
I’ve planned quite a few different feature pieces for the coming few weeks, so keep an eye on the site, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, pin us on Pinterest, upvote us on Reddit, and reunite with us on Friends Reunited. We hope you enjoy the content, and please be vocal about your thoughts on the site as the site is constantly evolving and we’d love your guidance and support.
