At Saturday’s Newcastle Writers Festival session ‘Rough & Tumblr: Blogging Newcastle‘ I’d hoped to reference some Newcastle blogs that I subscribe to but we ran out of time. So here’s a list.
The act of blogging is a fickle thing. People get busy. Inspiration takes a holiday. Passwords get forgotten. So some of these accounts have had little or no activity for some time, but I hold out hope that they will return. Others post with such regularity I think I might have fears for their well-being if they suddenly ceased posting.
If I’m missing out on a Newcastle-based blog, please do let me know in the comments. Sharing is caring!
Thanks to Keri Glastonbury for inviting me to take part in the NWF panel, and to my fellow panellists Michael Newton of Showbag and Mark MacLean of Hamilton North for sharing your story about why you blog Newcastle. Newcastle rocks.
