Thank you so much for dropping by. It’s an absolute delight to have you here. I do hope you enjoy my blog posts with all my ramblings. I wanted to share with you why I chose the name Swirl and Thread and also a little about me, myself and I, so I hope you can indulge me a minute.
Swirl and Thread was an idea that was inspired by my pure frustration of not being as active on Social Media as I wanted to be. My background was telecoms and I felt that technology and this new world of communicating was suddenly passing me by.
Knowing absolutely nothing about the world of blogging, I embarked on an adventure that would lead me to many wonderful places.
When the notion of a blog arrived in my head, my initial thoughts were to write about sewing, but I soon discovered I didn’t have sufficient knowledge to sustain a blog. My other long time passion has always been books, so in my eyes they were a match made in heaven, hence the name Swirl and Thread.
I was visualizing the swirl of words on a page and the thread of a story working together to make a great book. Also swirls and thread are synonymous with sewing….
I started Swirl and Thread in March 2016 and it is constantly changing as I grow with it. Currently my main content is very much books related. I really didn’t ever realise what a mad mad world the book blogging arena is. I have met so many amazing people, both on- and offline and I have been honoured to read many incredible books.
I have become a Twitter addict since this journey began so you will find me over there regularly sharing and tweeting book related content, with occasional photos of my dog thrown into the mix!
I hope you will stay with me, as both myself and my blog evolve in an ever changing environment and thank you so much for dropping by.
