Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Posts from Your Archives – 2022 – Christmas and New Year Special – Alternative 12 days of Christmas by Sue Wickstead
Since this series began in January 2018 there have been over 1200 Posts from Your Archives where bloggers have taken the opportunity to share posts to a new audience…
The topics have ranged from travel, childhood, recipes, history, family and the most recent series was #PotLuck where I shared a random selection of different topics.
This series has been along the same lines and is a celebration of Christmas and New Year.
Look out for a new archive post in the Spring.
