Happy new year

From the admins!

Tuesday, December 18, 2007


Update: Chervil is now in Blogpower and added to the Blogroll as "Green Living".

We have another potential member from News South Wales, Australia - Chervil and her blog is green.

She's been blogging the requisite length of time and the navigation is normal.

I think she'd fit in, as long as we did too.

See what you think.

Cornish Democrat - an apology

It's hard enough getting people to visit without administrators making errors with the blogroll. This, alas, is what I did with:

Cornish Democrat

Where there should have been /, there was //. Oh dear. It's the difference between many visitors and few. Perhaps we can all visit now, just to compensate a bit.

Votes of Thanks

Huge votes of thanks to JMB for her sterling effort to get the bumper 4th Blogpower Roundup up and running.

To Ian Appleby - a tragic loss and I, more than anyone, feel uneasy that we don't have his even-minded hand at the tiller for the foreseeable future. Who knows what February might bring? Thanks, Ian, from the bottom of our hearts.

Colin and Matt - these are the type of Bloggers we can't afford to lose. We haven't lost them - they'll be in semi-hibernation only. We hope. Thanks for all the pleasure you brought to us.


Hey guys, I'm hosting the Britblog next week- it'll be up a week from today and includes the best of the blogosphere in the UK over that previous week- now I'm absolutely and utterly convinced that several of the best posts from the UK blogosphere come from everyone here- just looking at the quality of JMB's roundup you can see that- so over the next week if you find a post you like on someone else's blog or if you are proud of something you've written pop me a line with the URL and up it will go with all the rest of the posts!

Blogpower Round-up No. 4

It seems I became the victim of success. Whether it was my begging, pleading or the THREAT, or whether it was the guilt card I can't say, but the nominations for the fourth round-up of BP kept rolling in, slowly but surely.

In the beginning it was easy to keep up with them, then more difficult but finally it was done. Or so I thought. Minutes after the deadline, I made one last check of the email system. Control freak that I am, I decided to look in the spam section ( 957 of them) which had never yielded anything before. What the heck? In amongst the chaff were two posts, both from days ago, with six more nominations. I hope I didn't miss anyone else amongst all the fabulous offers, but if I did, you will understand, I'm sure. Now just one more check. Oh no, an email seventeen minutes after the deadline with more new posts.

Now truly finished, may I recommend that, before you head over to see if your post is mentioned, grab yourself a cup of coffee or tea, or a gin and tonic if you'd rather, and put up your feet. Fifty posts are included, each accompanied by a nattering editorial comment. So it is rather long. If you nod off along the way, please make sure you check the last image for a treat. Enjoy! Thanks to every one who nominated posts. I'm going off to have a nervous breakdown.

NB: All the links work but Bob Piper's site has been down several times recently. Try again later if you don't succeed and don't call me at the help desk.
