Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.
I hope all of you are well…and had a good week.
On the home front 4 tons of stone and 16 tons of topsoil are now waiting for new lawn to be laid and after spreading and raking all of the materials my husband is looking decidely lean and mean.. beats running a marathon. He is supplied with regular infusions of liquid and food and has gone through several audio books in the process.
I have been working on a few projects and begun a declutter process starting with my clothes, handbags and shoes. Most of which have not seen the light of day since we moved in… which implies that I don’t really need them… do I???? I have to bite the bullet and pass them along to someone else who might enjoy using them instead.
I have been out and about…(including later today)
Author Sandra Cox who creates the most wonderful western romances, featured me on Friday and also separately wrote a lovely review for Life is Like a Mosaic…a great boost to the week, which can be viewed Sally’s Books and Reviews
Head over to read the feature: Sandra Cox – Friday Great Read..
Tonight I am reading a poem and flash fiction for an amazing event being broadcast by Showtime TV… Jane Risdon is also on the programme and it promises to be a great night. Starting at 7.30 p.m UK time it will be available to watch free and you can catch up wherever you are at your leisure – Equinox event 7.30 pm. onwards Showboat.tv
Before we get into the posts from the week.. a reminder of the new series of Posts From Your Archives due to start in October. I already have 10 authors who have agreed to let me poach two posts from their archives…so if you want to get on board.. get your skates on.
Since this series began in January 2018 there have been over 1100 Posts from Your Archives where bloggers have taken the opportunity to share posts to a new audience… mine.
The topics have ranged from travel, childhood, recipes, history, family and the most recent series was #PotLuck where I shared a random selection of different topics. This series is along the same lines… but is a ‘Lucky Dip’
In this series I will be sharing posts from the first six months of 2021
It is an opportunity to showcase your writing skill to my readers and also to share on my social media. Which combined is around the 50,000 mark. If you are an author your books will be mentioned too, along with their buy links and your other social media contacts.
How to feature in the series? Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives -#NewSeries October 2021- ‘Lucky Dip’ and Do You Trust Me??
