I subscribe to a number of WordPress blogs about books and reading, and after enjoying them for several years, it finally dawned on me that maybe I should identify the book-related material in my own blog and start a second blog, devoted to books. Ping! Lightbulb flash.
So: I’m happy to announce the launch of THE BOOKSMITH BLOG http://thebooksmithblog.wordpress.com . Thanks again to WordPress.com for their blogging platform. They really do make blogging easy for wrinkly writers like yours truly. I hope you visit my new blog, even if you’re not an official Booknut like me. If all else fails, it has quite a funny header pic.
Despatches from Timbuktu will continue to act as my electronic soapbox where I comment on modern life, South Africa, social trends, my travels around the Western Cape and Cape Town, plus anything else that might attract my butterfly attention.
And not to overlook the fact that Despatches From Timbuktu is the one place where Chocolat can express her displeasure at my poor performance as her Personal Assistant. Sorry, Chocolat, but you have no idea how much work building a new blog entails . I promise there’ll be fish for supper tonight. How’s that for an apology?
