The amazing Big Up Your Blog Group has closed it’s doors for the last time. Like the Norwegian Blue Parrot, it is no more, it’s ceased to be. BUYB has shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleeding choir invisible.
It’s snuffed it
Anyway – Boo! But also Big thanks to Suzie from Suzie Speaks for all her hard work and best of luck in ventures going forward.
This was a good group. Friendships were made, people met in the real world, beer and gin was drunk, and people supported each other. So it’s demise is sorely felt.
All is not lost though – lovely Em Lindthorpe has set up a new group, The Pickled Blog Project – check it out. Many former BUYBers have joined, and the ‘community’ spirit is alive, kicking, and open to new members. As things are getting started, to spread the word, she has started a tag.

1.What is your favourite pickled item to eat?
2. Tell us about a time you were in a “bit of a pickle” (a tough situation)
3. Pickle Rick, a character from Rick and Morty, is a personal hero of mine. Who are your heroes?
4. If you had to live in a jar, what three items would you take with you?
1. I like pickles, though to be fair I liked them more before I tried to make them myself. I am very partial to pickled carrot, and pickled ginger, but my favourites are Japanese Temple Pickles, which are drier than western pickles and absolutely delicious.
2. A time when you were ‘in a pickle’
Oh baby – I have the perfect post In a Pickle
And the follow up! Revenge of the Hell Pickle
It maybe seems a bit cliched to say David Attenborough, but he had a huge impact on my life. I remember sitting watching Life on Earth, cross legged on the living room floor during the summer holidays, back when I was a kid. I loved it, I still remember being gobsmacked at the dinosaur footprints in Arizona where a Mother & child walked over the mud millions of years ago. I was hooked, and remain so. He’s a big part of the reason I did Environmental Science at Uni, and I work as a Recycling Officer.
4. Three items
I need space, so I take it, this is a very big jar, maybe a scaled up terrarium? That would at least give me earth to grow things, which is good so I’d take seeds. Assuming unlimited battery and WiFi then I’d take my laptop, and a decent mattress
