About Content Catnip

Hello! Welcome to Content Catnip. I’m a passionate collector of digital treasures and an indefatigable seeker of the weirdly amazing relics of our society.

In the past I’ve written and planned content and created digital marketing strategies for many brands such as: Travelodge, Aveeno, The AA, British Gas, ASDA, Tesco, Tesco Wines and eHarmony.

Come along on a journey as I meander through the quirky and curious aspects of anthropology, science, natural history, content marketing, art, music, books, philosophy, travel, material culture and loads more. This blog has been my labour of love for the past three years.

So please submerge yourself into a pelagic zone where the vast bulk of the iceberg waits to be explored below the surface.


I would love to follow you. Grab me by the hand and show me something cool.



    1. Hi Eric, thank you so much for nominating me, I really appreciate that. I’m not surprised that you won it as you know how to put together good posts – well done. Will keep this in mind for future participation, I have never heard of these awards before.

      1. Neither did I until I was nominated. If you click on the image in my post it will take you to the site for the Versatile Blogger Award. The address is http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/?ref=spelling

        I’ll admit that I was a little wary at first but after reading about it I found it’s legit. Many of the blogs I’m following have won the award and lots of others besides.

        The best thing is you’re not obligated to participate. However, since I placed the post this afternoon I picked up about 7 followers and I’ve had the best traffic day since I started my blog just over 2 weeks ago.

        Makes me wonder…

  1. Dear, how lovely to be in touch again.
    Your ‘about’ is very interesting to me and in time I may need to ask you lots of questions,
    but first I must read your posts 🙂

  2. HI! Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking something and following. I am enjoying my visit to yours. You certainly demonstrate the meaning of ‘eclectic.’ Great fun!

    1. Hey Tony, not a problem! I am so glad that I found you through a Google search actually, your blog is a wealth of information on health. Really glad you like my blog too, yes it’s a bit like a Turkish Bazaar full of treasures, I can’t possibly keep it to only a few things because too many things interest me hehe

      1. Thanks for your kind words. I think of my blog the same way. As a former newsman I am amazed at the ‘evergreen’ nature of much of what I write. I look forward to more visits to your Turkish Bazaar.

  3. I LOVE your blog’s new look! 🙂 Not sure exactly how new it is since I’ve been gone from wordpress for a while, but thought I’d mention anyway!

      1. I’ve been great! Worked through a lot of stuff in the last year. I feel better than ever 🙂 How are you? What’s new? ❤

  4. Greetings Catnip,
    Hope all is well.
    This is not really my usual thing, but I’ve nominated you for a web-log award (actually, you’ve won a melodramatically-titled blogging award – yay!), and it’d be sweet if you checked it out. You are under NO obligation to do anything; but you have been named as a web-log I value. Take that howsoever you choose, and I hope you enjoy!

  5. Hi Catnip I just started skimming through your posts and I love your focus and commentary. I look forward to exploring your site and reading your thoughts. Best, Brett

    1. Hi Brett thanks so much for coming and reading my blog, I really love yours too and you’re doing a great job of selling Canada to me..I’ve never been but have always wanted to and your posts are going to make that happen rather quickly, have a great weekend
