I sometimes add links to blogs but realised it would also be useful to have them plus others on a single page. They will be added to when I get a round tuit (as they say) and no doubt may fall off over time. Most will have links to other sites. This ought to be a page not a post but it is a start. Also havent yet checked the links work. (Oh the shame of amateurism versus enthusiasm). Many offer similar items such as poetical form but always the one you want. Usually have examples, which is useful
