When I started the Scribbler back in 2013, I didn’t have a clue where it was going. Someone told me that if you write stories, you need a blog. I wasn’t sure if anyone would visit. It’s a huge world out there. Ok, it’s a little smaller now with the internet, but, it’s still scary-big. There are thousands of blogs, hundreds of thousands of stories. How do you catch someone’s attention? How can I make this blog effective and entertaining?

Have effective and entertaining guests, that’s how! And I’ve been lucky!

Guests from all over the world – authors, artists, photographers, glass blowers, reviewers and musicians.
Scotland – Rio de Janeiro – Great Britain  
India – Saudi Arabia – Italy – France  
Canada – United States – Australia
Bangladesh – Qatar – Bequia – Mexico
South Africa – Spain – Philippines.

Many guests have been most kind and appeared more than once.

(I apologize if I've missed someone)

I must admit that it’s been a lot of fun. I’ve got more great guests lined up for the coming months (and years I hope). More authors, an inventor, more musicians and artists.
I’ve added more gadgets over the years and one that I have fun with is posting a photo each week of something interesting, usually by one of my readers or visitors. See it on top left.
Family and friend photos on right side bar.
Blogs I enjoy, lower left side bar.

I’m hoping that you might suggest someone that should be a guest on the scribbler, or it could be you. Please continue to leave comments. Subscribe to the blog. Join me by email.
Keep visiting.

A gift for you!
