Summer has started with an absolute bustle of activity across the the Modern Parlance landscape.
The Banburian, a blog about Banbury and the surrounding areas, launched in May and has already gotten some amazing feedback. The latest posts include a visitor report and a picture gallery from the 2016 Banbury & District Show, a push for outstanding local pet rescue, BARKS whose felines need new sneeze guards and some tips for the Book Mad who might find themselves in Banbury. There’s also a Banburian twitter feed to keep us as up to date as possible with things you want to know, need to know and just may find interesting about the area.
Fabulous Foodie (the very first of the Modern Parlance Blogs) turned 10 years old on June 18. We have talked turkey, gotten baked – uh, I mean, baking – gone multi-media with podcasts and launched a Fabulous Foodie Facebook group. What a ten years it has been. Can’t wait for the next ten!
Over on Greater Gotham, we’ve refocused on the travel and sight-seeing end of things and there are two new photo galleries – one from a day trip to Lichfield, UK and one featuring the varied and very personal messages you find on a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Both are the work and appear courtesy of Modern Parlance’s in-house photographer, dungeekin.
And that’s another exciting expansion, Modern Parlance Photos. We source images and photos for our projects from a number of well-respected and reputable sources but whenever and where ever possible, we like to use our own work. To that end, we have established a number of collections (food, architecture, travel, flora & fauna) and are adding more all the time. These images are suitable for use in ebooks, blogs, social media updates – any sort of digital publication – and we are happy to make them available for use by others upon agreement of terms. Visit our flickr page for an idea of the work we do and if you’re interested in a particular image or set of images, please contact us for details.
Finally, I invite you to visit and “like” the Modern Parlance Facebook page – you will find real time updates on what’s happening on the blogs, on the eBooks front and other Modern Parlance news as well as links I’ve found worth reading – and therefore worth recommending as well.
