Blog of the Month - August Winners
It seems we hit the jackpot with this month's Blog of the Month. We had a record 19 - yes, nineteen entries plus five from the team making a total of 24. The team's entries, of course are not eligible nor were those that didn't drop their the links in Discord or in the comments on the announcement post.
The usual bit of housekeeping: the number of Silver Bloggers continues to increase and we're now at just 102 short of the magic 1,500 subscribers. Activity is hard to judge as Hive rises and dips and as life happens for our Silver Bloggers.
As always - a thank you
To everybody who contributes to making this a fun community and especially to our delegators. Right now we have about 8,200HP in delegations which means that the value of our votes on members blogs has some real value.
Speaking of...watch this space as we have news coming soon...
The team's contributions
As we mentioned, all five of the team took us through four or more decades of musical memories, from the 1950s to the 2020s. Each is unique and I recommend you pop over and have a listen to the eclectic selection from each of us. The links, in no particular order:
- @lizelle Silver-Blonde Lizzie's Musical Time Travel
- @coquicoin Silver Cat's From a Dancing Queen to a Motomami
- @mondoshawan Silver Fish's Music was, is and always will be my first love
- @tengolotodo Silver Scot's Way Down but the King Live on
- @fionasfavourites Silver Flower Six decades, only six songs? Impossible
The business end
Because we had so many lovely entries to choose from, including some that weren't eligible to be considered - and we did read them all - Silver-Blonde Lizzie decided that a couple of other standout posts should get some special attention. First up, new Silver Blogger, @juliamulcahy, who shared Lazy Sunday Musical Interlude and @annafenix's 4 Great Musical Decades.
Pop over and have a listen?
Last but not least
Again, we had an outright winner.
We loved how our Silver Farm Girl shared her musical love story from that first love to the one who walked her down the aisle as a (still) married woman.
