What is Talk of the Town?

A place for bloggers and authors to link up their bookish posts.


What post can you link up?

It does have to be book related but doesn’t have to be a review – it can be anything you would like to share with others. It could be a Q&A, guest post, book news, book event, blogging tips, giveaway, top 5 books you’ve read, your weekly/monthly roundup or even something you’ve made from instructions within the pages of a book! As long as it is book related, go for it. The post you choose can be something you’re really proud of, has a message that you think others will benefit from or a book you think deserves to be noticed. Your post doesn’t have to be recent either. It can be from your archives. And you DON’T have to join in every week.

Authors, you blog too! and if you would like to join in you’re very welcome. I would request that you don’t use the linky as only promotion though. Links to your books that you have in your posts are fine. I’m thinking here of the fabulous posts I read on writing tips or your inspiration etc and I know some of you join in round robins where you have a question to answer.

There is no cost for you to link up with #TalkoftheTown.  Link up to find new blog readers and increase traffic to your blog/website.


Don’t know how a linky works? Follow my walkthrough – it’s easier than you think!

The link is open now until Tuesday evening.

Please feel free to add the badge to the post you’re sharing. Alternatively, please link back to Talk of the Town on your post.

Thank you Lindsay for all your support as well as linking with TOTT each week. 

Once again we had a variety of bloggers and authors linking last week.  We hope you’re enjoying the variety of posts.

This week I’m linking up my review of Sarah Morgan’s Sleepless in Manhattan.  It’s not just the romance that pulls me in but I love the relationships between the female friends too.

You may notice that Jera’s Jamboree is looking different … and that’s because I’ve migrated back over to WordPress (self-hosted).  I’m enjoying using this platform again and just love my template.  I had been pondering/researching this for a long time and when fellow blogger Karen from My Reading Corner made the move I bugged her with questions and decided to go with her recommendations.  For anyone thinking of making the move, have a look at self-hosting through Kualo and if like me you’d prefer someone to migrate for you, Phil from Pipdig has been amazing not only with a smooth transition but with putting up with all my questions too!

I have my eldest son’s award ceremony followed by graduation ceremony from Portsmouth Uni on Wednesday (feeling emotional already!) which will be the highlight of my coming week.  Hope your week is filled with laughter and love.

I've been blogging about my interests at Jera's Jamboree for 8+ years. My love of reading, crocheting and being out in nature are all things that help me unwind from my role as an Inclusion Lead in a primary school. I'm passionate about early help and sharing strategies with families to empower and help build resilience. I'm a member of of my Local Authority's Early Help Operational Board, working alongside other professionals to instigate change and growth.
