  1. Hello,
    Nice blog, i’ve been visiting for a while! I’ve started my own Scot-Irish / Ulster-Scots blog and I was wondering if you would be interested in a link swap? No problem if you are not interested. BTW, I have already taken the liberty to add your blog to my Ulster-Scots / Scots-Irish bloggers widget at netvibes.com. This widget is on my blog and website. Anyone can add it to their iGoogle homepage, Windows Vista desktop, Apple Dashboard, Windows Live or their own blog or website from here:

    http://eco.netvibes.com/widgets/export/blog/393422/latest-posts-from-the-ulster-scots-blogging-community

    This widget allows people to view a description of the latest posts from 13 blogs with an Ulster-Scots theme. If you have any reservations about your blog’s inclusion let me know and i will remove it ASAP!

    All the best,
    Citizen69
