Blog of the Week: New Theme for Monday 20 September 2021

BoW 20-9-21.jpg

For those of you who are regular contributors to the Silver Bloggers Community #bow initiative, and newcomers, too, a reminder that from the last edition:

  • We have separated the winners' announcement from the announcement of the new theme. If you missed the winning post, you'll find it here.

  • There is an additional rule - just to keep things fair: the same person (account) may not win twice in succession.

    In summary, last edition's winner may enter, but the contribution, like those of the judges' panel, will not be eligible for a prize .
