Me rounding up alfresco in the garden today
I haven't posted this week but not because I haven't anything to write about. I do but it'll have to wait because I've been spending the week seeking out new Scottish bloggers. Well new to me anyway...
This week I am the guest editor of the Scottish Roundup and I set myself the mission of making the roundup as diverse as I could with at least fifty percent of the blogs to be featured to be ones that have never been included in the Roundup before. I think I managed. In fact, I know I did. Hurrah!
This exercise has been important to me for a number of reasons:
1. I think that you need to refresh your blogroll regularly- too many bloggers give up, get fed up, or just lose their mojo- you've got to seek out new stuff.
2. I like a political blog as much as the next naked ape, but the Roundup is often exclusively political and I like to shake it up a little when I edit.
3. I like meeting new bloggers because on the whole they are an interesting bunch, so hello to everyone I met online this week. I've come away from the whole thing with some firm new favourites.
4. Sometimes people put pics of their dogs up and that's always good.
Read the Round Up here and if you own, rent, have feudal rights to or have a freehold on a Scottish blog then nominate yourself for next weeks roundup.
