I'll tell you what! If you are living in London attend the evening celebrating fatherhood, organised by Nomadic Expression and win prizes!

So Bloggers in UK, here are different ways to participate in making this an evening of bridges and ties that will usher in a new beginning.

Hi,

This has NOTHING to do with the lovely event you just posted but I didn't know how else to reach you. I updated my blog and the "Updated" sign isn't by my blog name on the list of all blogs. Do you know what's up with that? Thanks!!

Hello S.Girl,

It happens sometimes when blogrolling isnt up or something else is wrong with it.

We can do it manually, so should your blog not update in 2-3hrs, please leave us a msg like the one above.

Thanks FOC! We're new to this whole blog thing but figured it would be a good way to introduce our magazine to the blog community since they're naturally people who enjoy writing and reading. We'll post something on the main Somali Blog site once our first issue launches in January.

By the way, I really like your blog and all the pics of London. Been there once, it's a cool city. Though its funny to hear Somali folks speak Somali to me and then break out in an English accent. And vice versa, they poked fun at my slightly southern accent. But if I'm bad, they should hear the Somalis in Memphis or Atlanta! Lol.
