Detective work

A lazy Bank Holiday Monday afternoon and Col is catching up on lost sleep while I am perusing latest posts from the blogs I read. Then I come across a comment on a post which includes the writers full name. I recognise the professional writing style of someone who frequently comments - often in length- on lots of blogs - including mine.

A bit of research (good old google) and I discover this lady writes regularly for various periodicals and often reviews books on authors blogs and several of the books she had commented on have now been added to my list of books-to-order-from-the-library.

So it would be good if this lady could start a blog and share her reading matter and information on new books and authors with those of us in Blogland who also love books.
Please.

Back Tomorrow with a normal diary post

  3. oh dear, have I been sussed? It sounds like me, but who knows, there might be another mouthy, opinionated person out there! It has been suggested to me on more than one occasion that I should have a blog but basically I'm lazy and I know if I had one and had to post regularly, I'd simply not be able to keep it up and do my professional writing as well, plus my photography, baking, looking after your house, gardening, helping with grandson, and then there's the reading (yes, Sue, I used to review for magazines; I don't review books often now, apart from the occasional book review on Amazon.)And even more recently, someone suggested I 'join' Instagram and Pinterest. I've not joined any social media sites, I just prefer to read others' blogs and make comments where I feel they are appropriate.
    But if it is me, well done Miss Marple of Ipswich!

    1. My detective work was good fun and interesting, it was Torbay that gave the game away!

      Pah to instagram and pinterest but a blog about good books you have read past and present would be so useful!
      And you wouldn't have to post regularly. I enjoy the book reviews by Furrowed Middlebrow, but his are only on old books and often unavailable.

  4. You are a clever girly!!! One day I might have a blog, i.e. when I cease my writing! I have a deadline swiftly coming and must write about marine/maritime art for that, then a piece for the local paper (I write for the Property Pages, just short pieces which are connected in some way to property),and then a piece for Discover Your Ancestors magazine (online mag.) I love writing on social history matters. This is amazing in itself as I detested History at school. There is only one 'date' I can remember, and that is 1558-1603, the reign of good Queen Bess. To me, aged 14, if people were in a long dress or doublet and hose, it was time out of mind and I just wasn't interested! Oh, how we change! But most history magazines are edited by men and bought by men, so the writing is for men (obviously) and they major heavily on battles, monarchs, plagues and pestilence. I prefer social history, the small changes which made a difference (such as soft loo paper!) But all my articles require research, hence the time I'd have to devote to a blog. There are only so many hours in the day.
    Hope Col is feeling a bit better this weekend.

  7. What good sleuthing!

    Thanks for the visit earlier, Sue. I love reading your blog. It reminds me of home! Suffolk is such a great place. I come back yearly - I need that dose to keep me going. It's such a beautiful place full of history and stories and, of course, wonderful memories.

    Take care
