Sepia Saturday Week 11


Welcome to this call for posts for Sepia Saturday Week 11 (Saturday 13th February 2010) - the first Sepia Saturday to be hosted on our new dedicated Blog. Most of you will be familiar with using these dinky-linky things, but if not, they are quite easy to use : if you are joining in the fun this week, simply enter your name and the URL of your blog in the box below and press enter. Please try to include a link back to the Sepia Saturday Blog in your post so that your readers can then discover the other posts, and please try to visit the blogs of as many of the other participants as you can. If you have not joined in before the rules for Sepia Saturday are fairly straight forward - the idea is to share our old photographs (they don't have to be sepia). They can be used as a springboard to whatever you want - family history, local history, poetry, prose or whatever - or they can simply be shared with the briefest of descriptions. In order to allow maximum flexibility, there is no weekly theme on Sepia Saturday : the overall aim always remains the same - to share our collective history. A slightly more verbose statement of aims can be found in The Sepia Saturday Manifesto.



Let's hope that Sepia Saturday goes from strength to strength in its new home. It would be really useful if regular players could give the launch of this new blog publicity on their existing blogs so that we get as many participants as possible.

Mine's up now. I've tied it in (sort of) to Valentine's Day.

I like this and have posted some old ones on my own blog....actually just going to do something there that will fit with this. How nice to have a place to meander and see others' ancestors, photos, thoughts.

I had some major problems with my comments when I switched them to embedded format yesterday. Alan drew my attention to the fact that it was impossible to leave a comment, so I have restored the full-page format and done a test. Everything seems to be okay now. Please come back!

A good innovation. Many of the old photos really deserve to be seen.
