Broadside is blooming — with 939 followers worldwide, and a 50 percent increase in only a few months.
I’d love to hit 1,000 by my birthday, June 6.
If you’re a fan, I hope you’ll consider re-blogging, tweeting or linking!
Long-term commenters include three Australians: Charlene, a feisty photographer; Nigel Featherstone, a writer of the most lyrical and lovely posts and Belongum, a military veteran who shares my love of Gerald Durrell, a British writer who made me want to do what he did for a living, even if I’d never reach his level of skill!
Matthew Wright, a New Zealand historian and writer, knows well the challenges of this business we both chose; his latest book, about Kiwi criminals, is out in July. He has written (does the man sleep?!) 45 books. So far.
Andi M. has shared some great stories, and I’m curious to see how Kate, a young Irish journalist, is faring in our mutual field. LKD, newly engaged to the stellar Sarge, whom she has blogged about at Gin and Lemonade with a twist, met me for a drink in Manhattan last year. So good to put a face to an on-line name.
I love hearing from you!
So, those who have yet to comment, especially — please tell me a little about yourself.
Where do you live ?
What sort of work do you do?
What are some of your passions?
Any topics you’d like to see more of here (or less?)?
What brought you to Broadside?
And what three books MUST I read, of any period? I’m always hungry for new stuff.
