While I am of course the self-proclaimed premier blogger of Swindon, said with tongue planted firmly in cheek, there are many other wonderful, more subject specific blogs. Here’s just some that I know of:
Why read? Swindon Artswords is about a programme of literature development activities in Swindon. It runs from Lower Shaw Farm and is linked to Swindon Borough Council’s Swindon libraries service.
Why read? For an overview of the Swindon Open Studio’s events. These take place in the first two weekends of September every year.
I just LOVE the strapline on this blog: ‘Swindon arts blog: living in an unexpected creative hotspot…’ Because yep, it is. And that’s something I’ve worked hard to convey in Born again Swindonian.
Friends of Swindon Museum and Art Gallery: Friends of SM&AG work to help Swindon Museum and Art Gallery in conserving and adding to the collection.
Moving on to history now we have two splendid historical blogs both from the pen of Frances Bevan. Frances is one of the town’s fabulous historians. Together with Graham Carter and Mark Sutton she is part of the splendicious Swindon Heritage Magazine. @ & @SwindonHeritage
The Swindon Heritage magazine has its own blog on their website: http://www.swindonheritage.com
Swindon in the Past Lane (nice pun – love a good pun)
Why read? For historical stories and fab photos from all eras of Swindon life.
Status, Scandal and subterfuge: everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask about the lives and loves of the inhabitants of Lydiard House.
