Have a go!

Have you ever thought about sharing ideas with your friends, but you find platforms like Facebook & Twitter, etc. intimidating? Why not start a WordPress blog: it’s easy! Click the link to read the post. There are plenty of different templates to choose from, and if you have something to promote, there’s nothing to stop you; for example, I use my blog to promote the biography of my grand uncle, Wilfred Risdon: Black Shirt and Smoking Beagles, which can be bought direct from my own website (follow the link, and don’t be put off by any browser warnings: the site is perfectly safe—it just means I haven’t converted it to https yet, but it’s coming soon 🙂 ), but I also like to share reviews of books I’ve read, and other things related to books & publishing, so it’s not just a hard sell. Even if you only post now & again, it’s rewarding being able to share your thoughts with other people; check out the blogs I follow, from the links on the right, as well: there are some lovely, friendly people out there. As they say on The Prisoner [one for the teenagers!]: Be seeing you!

  1. I’ve often thought of blogging, but then wonder if I have anything of value to share. I think perhaps I should give it a go 🙂


  2. You definitely should, Margaret! I wouldn’t worry whether you have anything of value to share: you might be surprised at the sheer variety of subjects people blog about, from the banal & mundane to the downright esoteric! The great thing is that, apart from the usual rules of normal decency, you can say anything you want, there’s no pressure on you to blog with any specific frequency, and there’s a good chance that someone out there will be interested to read whatever you want to write 😀 How about your love of knitting, as a good place to start? 😀


    1. I certainly have considered sharing my crafty adventures! I have a lot to deal with right now, but I think I will give it a try in a little while when(hopefully) things have settled down 🙂
