Today WordPress kindly informed me that this is the 8th anniversary of my blog, Homo Sapien Leilanderthalensis… literary evolution. In the almost decade-long adventure of literary blogging and promotion, much has happened. My blog began its existence as a place of self-promotion before evolving into a resource platform featuring writing competitions and providing fellow Indie authors an opportunity to have their work reviewed. Today, since my life is now packed with running Bindweed Magazine alongside dayjob and parenting responsibilities, and so my blog has reverted back to a promotional platform mainly for my writer-poet hubby, Joseph Robert and myself.
This month has also seen World Book Day 2019 on 7 May and World Poetry Day on 21 March. Since I didn’t get round to posting on either day, I have saved up my promotional blogging energy for a combination of both: coming tomorrow is Joseph Robert’s forthcoming poetry collection to coincide with the end of Article 50 here in the UK. More soon…watch this space!
