The Power of the Internet

A very quick update, particularly for anybody who follows this blog but isn’t on Facebook.

We’re just coming up to the one week anniversary of the ‘Save Carmarthenshire Archives’ campaign going live online, and we’ve just chalked up a remarkable milestone – 1,000 ‘likes’ on the Facebook page! This, and the hugely supportive comments both there and on this blog (including some from as far afield as Australia and New Zealand), really demonstrates the tremendous strength of feeling about this issue, and sends out a very powerful message to Carmarthenshire County Council. The campaign is also front page news in the current ‘hard copy’ issue of The Carmarthenshire Herald. So thank you, all!


Unless something unexpected happens, I don’t anticipate blogging about the archives issue for the next 2-3 weeks, partly because of other commitments, partly because I’m now waiting for replies to correspondence and FoI requests. However, I do expect to be able to post some news about developments with my books during that period, so the next post or two will probably be about matters seventeenth century and naval!
