Hey readers, I’m sharing a little bit of creativity today. Take a listen and have your Audible credits ready because the audio book of my short story collection A String of Stories from the Heart to the Future, is almost done, thanks to the awesome narration team Lillian Yves and Vincent Lee Graysen.

The sample is from the lead story, A Temporary Perspective. Enjoy!

Now for some blogging advice from Hugh Roberts with a step by step guide to reblogging posts and the etiquette required to make this form of sharing effective for the blogger concerned.

Today, not only will I take you through a step by step guide on how to reblog a post on WordPress, but I’ll also cover some of the pitfalls of reblogging.

For the purpose of this post, and because I use WordPress, some of this information will only be relevant to WordPress.Com users. 

Head over to follow the step by step guide, including adding categories and tags to increase visibility: How to reblog a post correctly on WordPress effectively 

Now time for another lovely recipe from Sowmya’s Spicy Corner.. Rava Dosa.. Semolina Crepe.. looks delicious.

Rava dosa – a thin, crispy and delectable crepe made from rava/sooji and rice flour. This is an instant dosa and can be made within few minutes. Rava aka sooji or semolina has a distinct taste and gives a crunchy bite to this dosa. This instant rava dosa is made by mixing the rava/sooji, rice flour and maida/all purpose flour with water and yoghurt to make a thin dosa batter. This thin batter is then poured over a hot tawa/griddle, drizzled with oil to get a thin, crispy golden brown crepe. The addition of sautéed onions, ginger, herbs and other seasoning gives an extra crunch and flavour to this dosa. Serve this rava dosa with piping hot sambar or chutney.

  1. Excellent picks today Sal. I’d missed Hugh’s blog and was happy he mentioned me and my grief with copyright. I try to warn, yet some of the best of us get caught innocently, like my friend Deb Jay 2 weeks ago. Exact same thing happened to me. Those were in my very junior years of blogging when I didn’t know that by reblogging someone’s post with an image, it downloads into our media libraries. I wrote a few posts about as warning. Might be time to start posting from my own archives, lol. ❤ I enjoyed Ann's audio teaser and love Indian food. Good reads! ❤ xx
