This was the summer of the Olympics and to be honest, it was probably also the summer of Bradley Wiggins, Olympic gold medallist and Tour de France champion. Quite rightly, everyone has gone Wiggins mad - and Modculture was asked by The Independent to give some input on its feature.
In the media
We recently went Transatlantic, with the Modculture site featured in the New York Times.
Nice when someone gives you a pat on the back. Even better when you get told you're actually getting a point across. Which is obviously what Cinedelica is doing as the UK's 4th most influential film blog.
That's according to media inteligence company Cision, which monitors all the film sites and blogs out there, using their 'in-house methodology' to pick out the most influential, ranking accordingly.
Cinedelica is one of our less-heralded sites as a rule, so nice to see it getting some love.
Top 10 UK film blogs
Just realised that this site has been criminally overlooked of late, so here's a round-up of what's going on. Just so everyone is still in the loop.
First off, we seem to have been all over the media, from the Daily Telegraph (which described Retro To Go as 'supercool') through to Arena (us commenting on 60s-built housing) and all points in-between. We're always available for a quote if you need one. One-liners are our business.
Aside from that, all ther sites have seen an upturn in traffic (the credit crunch isn't affecting web browsing), especially Switched On Set, which has quadrupled numbers in a couple of months. Some high-profile competitions have come and gone too (The Boat That Rocked right now). If you want to run a competition, get in touch.
Modculture has new writers on-board too - one on Retro To Go, one on Switched On Set and a Modculture news writer. More writers coming soon we hope - watch this space.
And we have a new site as a 'work in progress' - more on that later. I think that's it - over and out!
If we say so ourselves, Retro To Go has the best retro hotel and travel section on the web. And we're not the only ones to say it.
The Independent newspaper's Travel magazine recently ran a large feature on retro travel, citing Retro To Go as the place to look for ideas. The article itself is worth a look - and luckily it's online - follow the link below...

It might not sound a great deal, but Retro To Go has just entered the Technorati Top 10,000 blogs.
Let's put that into perspective - there are several million blogs out there (Technorati alone monitors 112.8 million and says 175,000 re launched every day), all pushing for your time. Retro To Go is one of the top 10,000 in the world and if we're talking UK-based only, probably up there with the best of them.
Technorati's ratings are based on how much influence you carry in the 'blogosphere' - how many times you are mentioned, referred to and linked by other sites. Which means we have some serious influence - and when it comes to retro-related items, probably the most out of anyone.
