About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Branding your Blog

I read a very useful post about author marketing, which made the stonkingly good point that when people visit your site they should be able to see immediately what it is about. Thankfully mine does.

It also pointed out that as an author site it should clearly show which genre(s) that author is writing, which mine didn't really do until now...
I have updated my banner, Writer's CV and Published Stuff pages and added a new page entitled Romance.


How about you? Does your blog clearly show the genre(s) you write?

Do you like to visit sites that have a clear brand/ theme?

Oh and here are my Limericks for this week's Limerick Off

Ms. Kane sets the first line of the limerick each week and the rest is up to you:

A woman was famous worldwide
For being the oldest girl guide
Though her uniform altered
Her faith never faltered
And she wore all her badges with pride
A woman was famous worldwide
For being a runaway bride
When tying the knot
She said “I do NOT!”
And then ran at full pelt to her hide.

A fellow was famous worldwide
For allowing the economy to slide
He was slothful and reckless
Unutterably feckless
‘Cause he used his PM as his guide.

A fellow was famous worldwide
For being incredibly snide
His sarcastic encounters
Reduced big burly bouncers
To a state that was quite sissified

And my honorary mentioned limerick:
A fellow was famous worldwide
For being incredibly wide
When his doctor said “No!
All this blubber must go.”
He considered his options were fried.
