Booooooo! What DOES one have to do to get on the magic list? I keep hoping I'll be on it every time you update but no....

Actually, I see a few journo blogs are missing off your list. Time for an overhaul?

Kate Feld said...

Wordsmith, I'm sorry I haven't linked to your blog on here before. Have you emailed me to be added? That's generally how I find out about new blogs, that and people's recommendations.

Likewise, if there are other MCR journo blogs to be added by all means let me know. There are so many blogs about these days that keeping tabs on all of the relevant ones is a full time job. Any help appreciated!

Am sure I emailed, way back when, but never mind. Carolyn Hughes (of Manchester is Ace fame) has a great journo blog @ http://manchesterisace.typepad.com/carolynhughes/2009/08/-working-from-home-the-myths.html And Here's the Kicker is a really good Manchester journalism blog too @ http://louisebolotin.com/

OK Wordsmith, thanks for all those - will have a bumper journoriffic edition of new blogs next time!

Hello,

I stumbled across your blog because it was mentioned in another Mancunian blog.

I too am from Manchester - but I don't really write much about the city.

Still, if you want to have a peep at the drivel I write, feel free.

Cheers
