BLOGLOVIN’: HEM News Agency joins bloggers’ network

  HEM News Agency is now an official member of the blogging networking site Bloglovin’. I signed up quickly last weekend and made my blog’s record there official. Bloglovin’, established in a Swedish garage in 2007, is a platform that enables bloggers and non-bloggers alike to curate, follow and keep up with their favourite blogs, ranging from the postings of leading organisations such as the BBC (the first blog HEMNA has followed) through to small mummy blogs and personal online diaries.

HEM TWITTERVERSARY: Celebrating one year on Twitter

As many of our blogging friends may know, the Half-Eaten Mind maintains a Twitter account, where I share the latest happenings and articles to come out of a partially digested brain. It just came to my attention that it has been exactly a year since we began tweeting our mind on one of the world’s most influential and bitesized social networks. I was looking through my Gmail account from where I receive all mails regarding the HEM Twitter feed and came across one from the Twitter HQ in San Francisco, California, USA. It said: “Happy Twitterversary! You just turned 1. … Continue reading HEM TWITTERVERSARY: Celebrating one year on Twitter

HEM TURNS TWO: The Half-Eaten Mind marks its second anniversary

Yesterday was a very special day for the Half-Eaten Mind. While for the owner it was yet another long one at work and surviving the Hammersmith and City line followed by buses that just don’t want to wait for you, the blog has marked two years since its establishment on the 16th April, 2012.

It has been a great twenty-four months, in … Continue reading HEM TURNS TWO: The Half-Eaten Mind marks its second anniversary

He has nominated us for the very dazzling Angel Award. Don Charisma is a very intelligent and multi-talented blogger who has an impressive with both texts and graphics.

BLOGROLL: Remembering a defunct HEM page

As I gradually added to and improved the Half-Eaten Mind, I created a blogroll page which had links to bloggers who followed me here on WordPress. However as time went on and more followers were picked up, it began becoming a bit of an ordeal constantly updating the page. Then a new widget appeared for the theme I am currently using (Mystique) which display the HEM community’s individual avatars on rotation, so from then on the “Blogroll” became redundant. I’ve just created a new “Useful Sites” page, and as they say ‘out with the old, in with the new’. The … Continue reading BLOGROLL: Remembering a defunct HEM page
