Here Is The News #16

Here is the News

Blogland Brilliance

Cat put together a list of 15 things most bloggers think about on a weekly basis - I can relate to a good few of these!

These Halloween ping pong ball pumpkin lights are pretty cool.

SJ is celebrating a bloggy birthday and has a great Dr Martens giveaway on her blog.

 Karen has some very exciting news to share with everyone!

Lots of celebrating going on over with Rhiannon as well - she's now the proud owner of a shiny fab house!

Sarah's compiled a list of 10 blogging rules you can break - an excellent list of advice!

Janet's organising her Thrifty Christmas Gift Swap again this year; I took part last year and it was great fun so I'm definitely taking part this time round. Pop over and take a look - you've got until November 17th to sign up.

Blogs I've followed this week...

Pretty Column

Just Me

The Cryptzoologist


The Butterfly Balcony

The Vintage Pattern Files

Buttercup Belle

Interesting Info

The BBC have put together a database of all TV and Radio listings from back in the 1920s to the present day. You can search a particular date or a word or name and can even find out what was on TV at the exact moment you were born. I've done mine and on BBC1 there was nothing - broadcasting didn't start til 12.30pm that day and I was born just before that!

Jenny wrote an excellent post all about the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the 16 resulting personality types. She's even been very helpful and thrown in a link to a site where you can take a version of the test for free - I did it and got type INTJ which you can read all about here if you want to take a nosy.

TV programmes I've watched this week...

 I've been trawling through 4oD, ITV Player and BBC iPlayer and have watched the entire series of:
William and Mary
London Irish
Man Down
and I'm just halfway through (and very much liking) My Mad Fat Diary

This week's Carnivals...

Take place on Friday night in Salisbury, Wiltshire (a smallish one) and on Saturday night in Warminster, Wiltshire (a smallish one) and Honiton, Devon (a biggish one).

What's new with you?


  1. Thanks for the mention! And, oh, another Aberdeen blogger on your list?! I'm off to read all about Karen (in a less stalkerish way than that sounds...).

  2. Thanks for the shout-out for the swap! Will you be taking part again this year?

  3. Apparently I'm INFP- the description sounds pretty accurate, but I'm always wary of those kinds of test results after the Derren Brown show where he gave a group of strangers identical "results" and they all thought they were a perfect fit for their own personality. Although, if I am INFP, I'm in good company - Julia Roberts and ET are too! xxx

  4. You followed me, and I've only just figured it out! Thank you!
