Pictures of The Viking Invasion of Thanet in 1949








pictures should expand if you click on them.

A much better Monday morning in the bookshop on the computer front meaning I can access old local pictures again.

Fortunately the main bookshop computer didn’t go wrong too so the books have been going up normally on the bookshop blog, here is the link to Saturday’s post for the dedicated followers http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/bleeding-edge-in-bookshop.html

I am having another go at trying to understand the internet’s social media, Facebook is really the only other social media site I use and with that I really only either put up what I post on my blog or link what I put up on my blog.

With Facebook the main issue that I am getting at the moment if spam friends requests, difficult for me as a lot of the genuine friends requests I get are from people who have a common interest, rather than people who I would know by name.


For the most part this is local history, but there is also a certain amount watercolour paining related or related to the scandal involving my old school.     

I have now taken to messaging people who send me unlikely looking friends requests before approving the request.

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
