Some friendly bloggers have contacted me and wondered why I’m not going to carry on with my blog. Well, I just find it so time consuming, I’m not able to do other stuff that I want to do! I’ve really loved the blogging experience over the past twelve months, especially all the lovely people I’ve met, both on-line and in person – you know who you are!
I really wanted my blog to be about our sailing adventures and places we’ve visited, but as we are back in the UK at the moment, I’m not really writing much, I’m just taking part in various challenges and people are nice enough to comment on my photos, but the blog isn’t really what I imagined it to be, so this is a serious decision for me. I also never find the time to do their things I want to do, such as sewing, sketching and photography. I’d like to try some more freelance writing for magazines. It would also be nice to read a book for a change!
Maybe I’ll come to my senses on 1st Jan and start a new blog, or wait until we get back to the boat and start again…..
Also, back in January 2014 I decided to start writing a book! Well, I’ve got three to write actually, but I’ll settle for writing one to start with …… an autobiographical tale about memories of being at boarding school in the 1970s…… a tale of friendship, school dinners, and ponies! I’ve not done much actual writing yet, but I thought if I used the time to write a book instead of blogging, I might get something done.
I’m also going to write a book about buying a boat and living aboard, and places we’ve been, which may be of interest to a wider audience, so I’m going to be busy!
So that’s my news. I don’t know whether to close down my blog altogether, or just not participate in posting, so watch this space……
