Posting Time

 I’m changing the frequency of posting here. I need to concentrate on my second blog, The North Bucks Wanderer and on other blog related work, so I will be posting here once a fortnight instead of once a week.

But it’s not too bad. The posts here are generally about twice as long as I had originally intended, so I’m publishing just as much material as planned; it’s just on a different timescale.

There’s already plenty to read here, and here’s a few to try: (Links in the captions)

My New Blog

NBW final banner for blog

I've been posting on this blog since January this year and I'm greatly enjoying it. I now have another blog; The North Bucks Wanderer, and it's been live for a couple of weeks.

There will be original photos and stories on people, places, and events in the North of Buckinghamshire, in England.

The Southern border of my area (I'm the Wanderer) will be  at the foot of the Chilterns. I will be covering all of the Aylesbury Vale council area, and all of the Milton Keynes area, right up to Warrington in the North. You can see the new blog here.

Roger The Reader will continue.

Amazon Grace

Many of the links on this blog go to Amazon. If you click on any of these links and buy anything at all (it doesn't have to be a book!) I get a percentage.

This costs you nothing, but enables me to keep creating unique posts illustrated with images I've taken, usually especially for the blog.

You won't see stock photography here.

Rocky ValleyThis photo doesn't have anything to do with this post, but I took it and I just fancied showing it to you. It's at Rocky Valley in Cornwall. There's no writing involved, but there are markings on a flat surface. It's communication.

Thanks, Mum

Simpler times at Brighton                        Summer 1962

This is me and my Mum at Brighton, in simpler times. Mum loved to read, and she encouraged my love of reading too. I'd read everything of interest in the children's section of the local library in the small town I grew up in, so she let me use her adult library card; I was much too young to apply for one. Perhaps this blog wouldn't have happened without her.

Thanks, Mum.
