A personal celebration of Swindon

Born Again Swindonian

Written by me, Angela Atkinson, Born Again Swindonian celebrates Swindon – the town that I call home and that I’ve come to love in the half-century+ years I’ve lived here. 

Besides my blog activity, I’ve written four Swindon-related books and am a devoted grandma.    

Wrapped around Born Again Swindonian, are the activities by which I earn a crust. Namely: content marketing articles for, or articles about, Swindon & Wiltshire businesses for placement on this blog in either/or the Swindon in Business and Made in Wiltshire sections. 

I also offer proof-reading & proof-editing services – with the focus on business blogs. So, if you can’t write, don’t want to write or are too busy to write – get in touch. 

 

Latest Swindon Ramblings

I’m always looking for new and interesting angles to share when out and about in Swindon.

Speakers Flock to New Platform

Speakers Flock to New Platform

Speakers flock to new platform – agency now has fifty on the books. A new speakers’ platform, only launched in April, has filled its books. It’s now got fifty quality speakers and new applicants are being put on a waiting list.

Swindon-based PR consultancy Scott Media launched ‘Scott Media Speakers’ to give its clients another way of raising their profile, by taking on speaking engagements.

Leading historian, broadcaster and podcast host Tom Holland will be the keynote speaker to open the new Athelstan Pilgrim Way. And his talk will also form part of Malmesbury’s events to celebrate the Athelstan 1100 anniversary this summer.

A word about our sponsors

When I’m not being Born again Swindonian and writing Swindon-related books I offer proofreading, editing and writing services as AA Editorial Services.

Food, drink and cafe culture

Swindon has a burgeoning independent eating and coffee scene. You’ll find write-ups on just some of them here.

Heritage, culture and the arts

Swindon is so much more than its rich and varied industrial history. It’s been described as a surprising creative hotspot. And it is. Read some of the posts in this section and you’ll see for yourself. I’ve lumped heritage together with arts and creativity because so often they are intertwined. The image shows the front cover of an issue of the very splendid Swindon Heritage magazine. Always worth a read

Swindon in business

A departure here from the rest of the site. Here are posts about Swindon businesses – many of them start ups like my own AA Editorial Services. Some, but not all, are paid advertorials. I have to earn a crust. That said, I know all of them personally, I’ve met them in some business capacity. I do business with many of them & trust in the rest.

Swindon's sons & daughters

A whole host of writers, actors, musicians and other notable people have connections with, or roots in, Swindon. Read about some of them here. The sculpture in the photo is of the Swindon-born actress Diana Dors. It’s located outside the Shaw Ridge cinema complex in West Swindon.
