Let’s go Brontë-Along!

Isn’t this a great picture, btw? It’s so like the original!

Another Brontë-based blogging event/theme! This time, it’s not a challenge or anything, just a collection of bloggers who like posting on the subject of the Brontës and their works and have a collective squee, which sounds like a good plan. The bloggers behind it are Beth and Melissa at Eggplantia and they say you can participate even if you’re not a blogger.

Posting about the Brontës is something I’m likely to continue doing after Laura’s Brontë Challenge is through, even if  it will most likely not be as often. Or, it might be that I’ll post more over at E•F•R rather than here. We shall see. Either way, I intend to keep reading, keep watching, keep listening, keep writing and keep blogging about these remarkable sisters and their wonderful works. 🙂

P.S. If anyone would prefer an Austen-Along, Beth & Melissa assures us there will be one of those as well, just keep your eyes open.

Here be my list of Brontë posts:

Traxy Thornfield

A Swedish introvert residing in Robin Hood Country (Nottingham, UK) with a husband and two cats. She's an eager participant in tabletop and play-by-post roleplaying, woodworking, photography and European travel, when there's not a plague on. Might get a novel out one of these days, if she doesn't get too distracted along the way.
