    Hello, Seems the boat has sailed on this. If you care to add a link for mine somewhere that would be greatly appreciated. A presentable site can be seen here: (some minor changes too come)

    Rather than a blog of life, Bucket of Work is a collection or articles written by Luke Morris for various use and publications. Mostly humorous, they can be intelligent too.


  2. Sarah says:

    Thanks for sharing this great list, I love to see so much local talent & enjoy their musings. I’ve re-vamped my blog of late, specifically focussing on the issues women face- would love you to share
    The latest post is on getting your energy back when work feels as if it’s sucking the life out of you.
