And it’s goodbye from me – a fond farewell?

Posted on 10th December 2012 in #SilentSunday/ #writingworkshop/ Blog


As the title suggests, I have decided to hang up my blogging hat.

I don’t want to rattle off a whole plethora of negative reasons why, even though there are some, instead I’d like to thank each and every person who has ever clicked on my blog. I really appreciate the fact that you stopped by to read.

Some of the things I’ve loved about blogging have been Charity Tuesday, Silent Sunday and The Writing Workshop – three things that all made blogging a pleasure for me. The Writing Workshop in fact being the reason why I started in the first place.

In a lot of ways, although I never realised it at the time, my blog was all about one post which began life as a Writing Workshop prompt and ending up changing my life.

I also really enjoy the book reviews and will continue doing those over on ReadandRated.

I don’t know for sure that it’s forever, but it feels like it right now certainly for this blog. Maybe I’ll be back with a different one in the future, maybe not. When I started blogging it was a warm and welcome community and there was an overall feeling of inclusion and acceptance. Sometimes these days it feels more like shark infested waters 😉

I am very happy in life right now and don’t have as much time to devote to blogging and I’m not one to do half a job so I’d rather bow out than blog for the sake of it. Without wishing to jinx my life, I have a wonderful partner, a great job and two happy and healthy children – all of whom deserve more of my time.

Ironically, my blog has the most followers it’s ever had and is getting more hits via search engines than ever so it feels wrong in a way to stop now but it also feels right to stop while it’s doing well rather than let it run down.

Thank you all, for your support.

    I’ve only just started following so it’s sad to see you go (though of course I’m stalking you on Twitter!) but you do need to do what is right for you and this, you feel is.

    I can do nothing but wish the the best in all that you do, from a newbie follower.

    Oh no! But I only just discovered you! I’m hoping I don’t ever stumble across the sharks, because so far, I’ve found such support in this community. Blogging is quite the time suck though and I understand your reasons. I just need to manage my time better (see it’s 1am as I write this – I should be in bed!!!). All the best in any future blogs you decide to write. xx
