Smorgasbord Weekly Round Up – New Magazine, Dionne Warwick, Glastonbury and Watermelon

Welcome to the weekly round up of posts that you may have missed. After a stormy start to the week we are ending in the same way with heavy winds and lots of rain the last two days. But not as bad as Ophelia, but for those who have not still had power or water for the week it is hampering the repairs.  Interestingly people here were saying that following the last hurricane in Ireland in 1961 there was a ferocious winter of snow and very cold temperatures, and the weather forecasters are saying the same thing now for the UK and Ireland.

I have been catching up this week and also putting in place some of the new features for the new look blog. As you will see if you read the post below, I am aiming for a more magazine theme, with contributions from other bloggers to provide a wider spread of content. Posts from Your Archives has been a wonderful start to this with posts on travel to La Palma and Kyoto, relationship issues such as rejection, education, mental health and food. I am scheduling posts for November and there are some slots still available. Please read the post and see if you have some posts gathering dust from your first days of blogging that might like to be given some TLC over here.

As always my thanks to my regular contributors, William Price King, Paul Andruss and Carol Taylor.. their hard work and talent brings a great deal to the blog and I am very grateful for their efforts.

And thank you too, for all your support with likes, shares and comments. I really do appreciate it.

Time to get on with the round up… I hope you enjoy.

  4. Another fantastic round up of talent Sally as per usual and loved the introduction explaining about the new magazine look. It suits the ethos of Smorgasbord down to the ground… but I don’t know if it will make Smorgasbord any better than it already is… BECAUSE IT IS ALREADY GREAT!
