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 it didn’t have articles 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 historians and urban explorers–not vandals.
Every place has a story. We’ll find them and tell you what it is. (Spoiler alert: it usually comes down to money. Or a natural disaster. Or religion. But usually money.)
