Hello lovely blog reader people
Well, the time has come. This blog has been fun – and will continue to be fun: I’m not stopping – but I needed something more grown-up. More sophisticated. Something with a navigation bar and lots of photos and drawings. Something in fact that looks a lot like … a website.
It’s here, at www.sophiabennett.com. And in honour of its launch, I’m running a new competition. A signed book of your choice. (One of my books, obviously. You can’t order “The History of Fashion” or the Oxford English Dictionary. Get those yourself.) Plus some bangles in honour of BB&B. I happen to live in bangle-rich country here on the Wandsworth/Tooting borders. You get a lot of bangle for your buck. So there will be quite a few.
To enter, go to http://www.sophiabennett.com and head for the News section. The Welcome competition post will tell you everything you need to know. Which isn’t much. This won’t be the most stretching comp you’ve ever entered. And tell me what you think of the new site.
Meanwhile, I shall be at the Hay Festival, talking on Friday morning to the early crowd, getting themselves into position for Cathy Cassidy at 11.30. I have my beautiful slide presentation (3 copies), the address on sat nav, wellies, spare outfits and lots of vitamin pills. What can possibly go wrong?
Wish me luck!
