Hello from Gongleshanks

Hello everybody

Just a little update………..

Firstly you may have noticed that our name has changed from Grimnian Promotions to Voice Box Promotions. This is in anticipation of our soon to be launched website Voice Box. It has taken some time to develop but will be coming soon and I’m sure it will be worth the wait so watch this space…………

Next I will shortly be closing the website: http://www.gongleshanks.co.uk

The reason for this is that Grimnian will be incorporating competitions within the new site and all the judges will remain the same. It was an experimental site and didn’t ‘take off’ quite as quickly as we expected it to. We have discussed this and with our main site being imminent it seemed the sensible thing to do.

As you know we are a ‘company in progress’ so please stick with us as we develop. Our followers are growing daily and we appreciate all of you. We are here primarily for you to help you to gain exposure whatever genre of the arts you operate in. The development of the site has been a much bigger operation than was first anticipated but we hope to have a launch date for you in the near future.

As always, thank you from our hearts to all of our new followers and those who continue to retweet us. Our team is also growing and we extend a very warm ‘Grimnian’ welcome to our newest member and supporter of poetry, Killgin Stark. Welcome to our happy family and thank you for your hard work and support:-)

Please continue to help us to help you. We love the arts and all of you extremely creative people ‘out there’.

May all of your dreams come to fruition – however long it takes!

Update from Gongle

Hello folks:-)

Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, I’ve been busy hiding from Mad Meadow! Only joking but she does keep me on my fingers. You know when they say ‘Careful what you wish for’? well I think I’m beginning to understand that statement now. If you’d told me a month ago that a pretty lady would turn up and offer to do all my cooking/cleaning and ironing if I married her I would have been turning cartwheels but now it’s happened I’m not too sure……

She IS very pretty and very willing to please – she is a Grimnian after all – but there’s just something about her…..it’s difficult to explain, I just can’t quite put my toe on it……….We’ll just have to see what happens I suppose.

Anyway you don’t want to hear all about my love life…..What was that? You do? oh well I actually came to give you an update on the website. I am still in the process of finding more judges. I think the technical bits are just about sorted now and I will be posting another ‘free to enter’ competition shortly.

It’s all been a bit crazy but we should be able to post a ‘cash’ competition soon now so keep checking the website. In case you’ve forgotten the address is: http://www.Gongleshanks.co.uk

I should also have an update for you on the main site, MineEye before too much longer. We may look like part timers but believe me there is a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes!

As always if you have any comments or suggestions I am always pleased to hear from you. Either leave a comment on the blog or email me: Gongle22@hotmail.co.uk

Thank you all for your continuing support of the Grimnians. We really do appreciate all of our followers and all the mentions and retweets. Don’t forget you can ask any of us for a retweet by tagging us, I know some of you are shy but that’s why we’re here. We try to retweet as many of you as possible. If you haven’t had any promotion for some time please remind us.
We are only Grimnian after all!
