Welcome to this week’s Roundup. First of all a plea – if you haven’t read my post asking for new volunteers for the Scottish Roundup team, please do so. We would love to welcome you to our growing family – and the more people we have, the amount of work required of any one person is lessened and we are able to cover a wider range of interests than we currently do.
Now we move on to the eclectic mix of excellent posts from the Scottish blogosphere this week. If a favourite post of yours hasn’t appeared, and you haven’t nominated it, make sure you do next week. Our small team can’t possibly see everything and we need you to help make the site as wide ranging as possible. Send us your nominations via the form on the right, by tweeting @scottishroundup or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
