If you take a gander to the right-hand nav bar, you’ll notice a new feature! This blogroll is the one I use, along with highly filtered Google alerts, to track what’s happening in the Austen and Brontë worlds. As you will notice, there is a lot of Austen sites and not so much of Brontë—even the website for the Brontë Society US chapter is defunct. This is where you come into play! If you know of any current sites (so many are dead), mainly geared for Brontë fans, please use the form below to let me know. It will be much appreciated!
Here are your Jane Austen and Bronte sisters related links for the week:
editor’s note: as you probably heard, the creators of Poldark and Victoria are doing a new version of Pride and Prejudice to be shown on ITV (a British channel) in the next few years. I started adding all the articles in relation to that announcement and stopped when I came across over 50 of them.
Yes, we are still alive! The Mr. handles the backend of the site and we have the admin page only accessible by our home IP to prevent hacking. When we traveled to the family cottage in early June, we assumed he could easily get into our web provider’s site to add our cottage IP. No such luck! Turns out the web provider’s site itself was having issues and as my websites (to the Mr.) are way down the list of things to do, he was only able to work on it when he had some free time. With my mother-in-law visiting for the first three weeks and guests for the next five weekends, downtime was hard to come by! But it’s fixed now and all of your Austen and Brontë needs will be met again. Huzzah!
Austentatious Links will kick off again this weekend (there has been so. much. Jane these last few weeks!) and the near daily posts will start next week. I’m going to be updating the Austen/Brontë daily quote list to start back up again soon as well.
I hope everyone is having a good summer! Let me know how you’ve been!
