Blog Background

Sometimes Interesting started in mid-2011 as a personal blog of interesting things I had come across over time.

I thought Wikipedia was a good resource of information, but there was a dearth of visuals (and in some cases the site didn’t have articles on topics at all).

Flickr accounts provided vivid pictures but lacked detailed descriptions or history behind the subjects.

What if there was a website that combined both? And thus, Sometimes Interesting was born. In the years since, the blog has grown and I have been joined by contributors from all over the world.

Our goal is to span the globe and share neat places and world history. We feel each abandoned building tells a tale and every town has a story.

We are information seekers and urban explorers, not vandals.

Every place has a story. At Sometimes Interesting we’ll find, research, and compile them for you.

  1. you’re sometimes oddly mysterious and interesting. note i omitted creepy.
    ever thought of making a visit to these various places?

  2. Your work is great. The choices for content are fascinating. Thanks for all that you are doing. If at any point you add a donate button, I would gladly contribute in appreciation for all of your work.

  3. I wanted to thank you for this good read!! I absolutely enjoyed every little bit of it. I have got you saved as a favorite to look at new stuff you post…

  4. I spend a lot of my time scouring the internet for forgotten, abandoned and interesting places, in order to learn more about this crazy, beautiful, interesting world but my main reason is I want to paint these places. Excellent stories, pictures and some very disturbing articles about just how cruel and stupid us humans are. Keep up the great work. I happened on this site as I was searching out more information about some pictures a friend sent me.

  5. I love your site. I found it while looking into Holland Island history because I am from MD and have been hooked ever since. Great pictures, interesting stories and references to go with them. Great job overall!

    • Thank you Gerardo for the comment! The Varosha post has been popular so I’ve been looking to increase my Mediterranean & Eurasia exposure. I am working with a S-I correspondent right now on an abandoned resort in the Adriatic Sea. This one is in the pipeline and come out some time next month. Might be right up your alley. πŸ™‚

  6. I have a place for you to explore. DOME HOUSES, SOUTHWEST FLORIDA. Built in 1981 in Naples and being swallowed by the sea. Owner trying to save them meets huge bureaucracy. Made me think of you immediately.

  7. I need to cite your site in a paper. How do I find out who the author is of an article? I’m referring to the Packard Plant article. Great read!

  8. Hi, I’m doing a paper on e-waste (due 12/8) and I need to cite your article on Guiyu, China. I’d like to ask for the author’s name and need to make sure the information is credible (I’m sure it is, as most of my other research on the topic has indicated, but I like to make sure I’m citing correct information). So, would you mind providing me with that information? I’d really appreciate it.

    Other than that, this site is really interesting!
