My review has been withdrawn as Simonseeks has closed down and monthly payments no longer made.

Unfortunately I cannot completely remove my piece, so I have to substitute my review with 200 words of nonsense.

I always questioned the logic of simonseeks – given that travel is such a crowded spot on the web it seemed they either needed to focus upon a specific niche, beaches or do the tripadvisor approach and “pile it high sell it cheap”.

Instead Simonseeks seemed to want a restricted number of articles with a fairly strict quality control, and sometimes a month would elapse between the user writing and submitting a piece and it being approved.

That was no way to build up the numbers of reviews and loyal contributors needed to make an impact on the search engines. Still, I quite enjoyed hanging around and making a little bit of beer money.

Apparently a group of former employees may yet purchase simonseeks, but in its usual style, we the contributors have been told very little – after waiting patiently for news between May and August 2011, I’m now withdrawing my work while I am still able.

I certainly hope any new Simonseeks team learn from the lessons of the failed first version. However, given my recent experience of “no news” I’m not hopeful.

This is a really interesting topic for a travel guide and something I knew little about. I was intrigued and you answered the questions on the tip of my tongue Paul. Thank you. Street addresses would be useful for the pottery studios, and, if they’re difficult to find, some tips about locating them would really help anyone who wishes to follow your tour.

Thanks once again for your helpful comments Jeanette. I've added addresses to the article, although the map provided at the center is pretty good.
