Words worth writing

The time is near (again!) for Baggins Bottom to pack itself away. It has served me well, since 2005, across Blogger and WordPress. But things change, move on. And so have we.

I have two new blogs that will probably cover everything that Baggins Bottom used to. One of these is words worth writing, and many of you have already found your way there. The blog is a couple of years old now, and everything to do with writing and my working life has morphed onto that one.

As we can categorise posts now, I’ve also decided to include other posts on words worth writing, such as life on the farm, general lifestyle posts, I won! and a brand new category, book reviews, which reduces the amount of content that would otherwise appear on Tales From Baggins Bottom.

The other blog is discussed here.

Please consider following words worth writing if you enjoy news of my writing and stories from both my life and my work, please like and follow the Facebook page, and please do consider changing your links and bookmarks.

Thank you so much for sticking with Baggins Bottom for this long – you know who you are. 🙂

The alphabet adventurers

The time is near for Baggins Bottom to pack itself away. It has served me well, since 2005, across Blogger and WordPress. But things change, move on. And so have we.

I have two new blogs that will probably cover everything that Baggins Bottom used to. One of these is a joint venture with the poet, the alphabet adventurers, which is a project whereby we visit as many places of interest as we can, from A to Z, and starting in Yorkshire. This blog will also showcase some of the poet’s wonderful photography, and there’s a YouTube channel to match.

We’ve decided to include other travel, days out, walks, etc, on the alphabet adventurers’ blog, which reduces the amount of content that would otherwise appear on Tales from Baggins Bottom.

Please consider following the alphabet adventurers if you enjoy tales of our travels, please subscribe to the YouTube channel, and please like and follow our Facebook page. And please do consider changing your links and bookmarks.

Here are the links to our alphabet adventures so far:

A is for … Aysgarth Falls

B is for … Bolton Abbey

C is for … Cayton Bay

D is for … Danby Castle

Thank you so much for sticking with Baggins Bottom for this long – you know who you are. 🙂

This post will also appear on Words Worth Writing.

We’ve not been idle …

Peacocks through glass

We may still be on our Easter holiday at the moment, but we’ve not been idle. Please pop on over to see where the Alphabet Adventurers have been, and then have a look to see what I’ve been up to in my writing life.

We had heavy snow again on Monday, and the first lambs arrived. They’re gradually being moved into the nursery field next to our gate. There are still a lot more to come, though. The weather has been so bad, we’ve not had chance to take any pictures yet – the ground has been ankle-deep with mud.

On the farm, two of the chicks they rescued have turned out to be cockerels, so it’s quite noisy here now – all day, not just at the crack of dawn. All of the pea-chicks are growing well, too, and they’re not the quietest of birds either.

We’ve had a new office delivered too (you can see more of this over on Words Worth Writing), and now the office is the warmest room in the house and we never want to leave it!

Hope you had a good Easter. We’re both back to work on Monday.
