On my own behalf: The Tolkienist has now become a Content Gem

For those of you taking an interest in the wider range of topics I am curating via my Twitter handle @Macrobee (@The_Tolkienist is putting an emphasis on all things Tolkienian) you may have seen quite a few funny and entertaining tweets which come from a particular content curation service called Content Gems. Basically you can do a search like a news alert with Google and it’ll send you the best links for your search term of choice – not much of a surprise but most of my search terms are linked to either Tolkien or fantasy and scifi fun stuff.

Imagine my surprise when I received my daily news to my inbox yesterday, scrolling down past headlines such as Minas Tirith Made From 420,000 Matchsticks, An Inspirational Tale of How a Poke in the Eye Can Lead to Great Things and The business-jet market is showing its first stirring of life since the financial crisis and getting to Things J.R.R. Tolkien has never said, done, written or had anything to do with. An on-going series.

Yup, my very own series I have been writing on this for a couple of months now. So all it needs is some patience 🙂 Thanks to anyone out there sharing this series and spreading the word which ain’t Tolkien!

P.S.: And yes, I know it’s J.R.R. Tolkien. That mistake is with CG, not me 😉
