Some Housekeeping and Bloggers for Charity


It seems that over the last couple of weeks I've attracted some public followers (anyone else thinks this is all a little cultish?).  I've been remiss in not welcoming you to the party, so here goes....  Welcome!



Before we play a little game of 'Pimp Your Blog!', I feel I should mention the old hands.  Special mention should go to the First Called, Mike Beedenbender; next came Michael Awdrey and JP  - those of you who read the 'comments' sections of posts will know that Michael and Jon make welcome and interesting contributions there.

The newer recruits are TasminP, Sean, Andrew Saunders and Christopher.  I hope you find things of interest here, despite the lack of focus on figures and wargaming.

I and know from the stats that there are others who follow, but prefer to hide their lights under bushels. I've used this picture before, but I like it and it says what I feel.



So, the blogs...
Andrew is also one of the Minds behind Bloggers For Charity.  

This is a collaborative project, bringing together wargamers and painters to raise money for Help for Heroes and Men Matter (a testicular cancer charity).  They aim to do this by running a large skirmish game and re-fighting the Battle of La Belle-Famille at Triples 2014.

The battle took place on 24 Jul 1759, along the Niagara River portage trail during the French and Indian War.  A French relief force for the besieged garrison at Fort Niagara fell into Eyre Massey's British and Iroquois ambush.  Originally a British victory, what will happen in May 2014?

For more details about the project, how to contribute and how to donate, go along to the Bloggers for Charity website.

    1. No problem Michael.

      One thing I've learned from your blog(and there's much to learn there!) is that it pays to be welcoming and to engender dialogue through the comments section.

    1. You're welcome Andrew. But it's you who deserves the praise for the work on Bloggers for Charity. The more of us who get behind it, the better

    1. As I say to Michael above, I've seen the benefits of reciprocity and all round good-eggedness from blogs such as yours.

      I think we agree that Bloggers for Charity deserves as much noise as we can generate.
