Today, 11th April, is the exact birthday of our first post on Instagram [@blackbirdsandme] I'm not a very tech-savvy person so getting the website up and running and 'site optimized' was a challenge and there is still a way to go...especially in terms of clever tricks for directing traffic to our site and getting our 'Blackbird has Spoken' blog out there. On the plus side, I've a great photographer at my side [@isabellasynekherd_photography] and have made some decent progress on my forthcoming book, "MID-CENTURY MODERN ON A SHOESTRING", which I shall be cracking on with over the course of the next few months whilst simultaneously continuing with home improvements and restyling at Blackbirds, some aspects of which will feature in the book. So I do hope our followers, family and friends have enjoyed sharing our journey thus far: in main, the sneak peeks we have offered via our Instagram weekly squares and on this site, www.mymidcenturymodern.co.uk. Our ultimate aim is to offer ideas and inspiration for building a mid-century modern nest on a shoestring budget: our 1970s house offers the ideal opportunity to document real-life, achievable examples which will be showcased in the book. Small matter of finding a publisher now. Wish us luck!!!
Meanwhile, here's another version of the anniversary post offered on Instagram.
