Smorgasbord Blog Magazine was the follow on to a physical newsletter that I published every month for two years, on subscription to listeners to my radio show.. I expanded the original format which was mainly health articles, to including book marketing, music, humour, lifestyle, cookery and food and short stories. My aim was to create a watering hole that provided a wide number of topics to chat about….This has now developed further to provide a platform for other authors to share their work. This year the blog celebrates twelve years, ten of them as Smorgasbord Blog Magazine.
This is a free WordPress account and not monetised. I am not an Amazon affiliate and do not charge for any book marketing. I have been asked that question in recent months and I wanted to clarify the issue.
I cannot take all the credit for the blog as I have an amazing group of contributors who bring their expertise and talent to the weekly line-up.

For the last three years author Daniel Kemp has permitted me to share his funnies from his facebook page in the Open Mic Night once a month
Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel –The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do?
In May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.

In the last year it has been entertaining to have another Open Mic regular join the comedy team..Author Malcolm Allen
