Not that I am allowed to say that particular 'c' word as I am over forty - but this blogging stuff really works. To an extent anyway, because my booksales haven't hit giddy heights, but I still have hopes.
David Plant, the manager of a fabulous website about the English Civil War, the site I make most use of on my bookmark toolbar, has e-mailed me out of the blue informing me that he is happy to link my blog to the site under 'Links' as his web statistics state I have generated some valuable traffic for him from my blog.
There you go then links do get used, so do keep circulating the blogs and keep chatting - about anything.
And for anyone who is interested in the Civil War of 1642-1646, this is the site and it makes very interesting reading. There is a great timeline, the biographies of leading Royalists and Roundheads and summaries of all the pivotal battles and sieges with maps.
