I've been asked by Caron to write this week's Scottish Roundup and was curious to know who is eligible, as it's described as: 'The best of Scottish blogging every week'.
Without a statement of eligibility I've compiled my own:
Anyone who blogs from Scotland
Anyone who is Scots and blogs from anywhere
But how do I define a Scot? Is it like the FA when I ask for proof of your great-granny's place of birth or do you need to have been born here? I know plenty folk who were born in far-off lands (no, I don't mean England!) to Scottish parents yet consider themselves Scots. Also there are those who have 'adopted' Scotland as their home, or has Scotland 'adopted' them?
As this week's editor I've ensured qualification is simple. Repeat 'it's a braw bricht moonlicht nicht the nicht' five times, then email me your favourite post of the week (address at the right hand side). It can be one you've noted when browsing or one from your own blog.
Don't be shy. Make a pensioner happy by saving her hours of blog-browsing. May I take this opportunity to thank the hundreds of you in advance.
