Supporting Blogs

Blogs and supporting them.


Firstly, I am taking pause to stop and thank all those people have become followers of this blog. Your visible support truly encourages me to be thoughtful about my content and to keep a regular output.


Another reason for this post - Jonathan Freitag is a wargame blogger who runs a blog called Palouse Wargaming Journal.



He is just celebrating 5 years of blogging and is running a prize ‘give-away’ as a thank you to those that follow his posts.


Jonathan not only posts weekly, but he is also a prolific supporter of other peoples blogs. Top man. 


Maintaining a blog requires that most precious of commodities to us all - ‘time’ and supporting blogs by following is an important indicator to a blogger that their output is interesting to others and worth carrying on with.


Bloggers give their time freely and run blogs in the spirit of sharing, so, if you enjoy anyone’s blog content, please consider making a comment and if you find yourself repeatedly visiting the same blog, please consider becoming a follower of the blog - it really does incentivise a blogger to stick with it.


For more information about Jonathan’s thank you ‘give-away’, please use the link below.

Stamford Bridge 1066

Invasion 1066: Stamford Bridge.

Now I wouldn't normally promote any of my own stuff like this, but Mr. ER Bickford has just put together a short ( 5 minutes) video replay of my Stamford Bridge design.


It's nice that he has taken the time to do it, but I think it is also worth looking at as an example of how effective a non-verbal video presentation can be.

Anyway - thank you Mr. Bickford.
