Mistaken again for being a Royal Dutch Shell Plc official website

Bu Alfred Donovan and John Donovan

We recently published an article in which Shell was praised for setting up this website: Shell Actually Implements a Blog!

Dow Jones Newswires has also described as the “company web site”

Now the Asian Tribune has described us as “an international news website of Royal Dutch Shell Plc”

We thought that it was obvious from the content that it is not a Royal Dutch Shell owned website, but it seems we will have to try harder.

Some confusion may have arisen from the following endorsement of the Donovan’s and the Shell Blog by a hapless Shell official:

Their website, is an excellent source of group news and comment and I recommend it far above what our own group internal comms puts out.

This website and sisters,,,, and, are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia segment.
