Forget the spring clean, this is the autumn tidy up. Just as we have been tidying in the garden, preparing for winter, so the inclement weather this morning has given me an opportunity to start tidying up my blogs.
My four blogs were started at a time when my life was in transition three years ago. My mother had recently died, I no longer had a job in science, and I needed to write and create.
I learnt as I went along, from simple, honest posts, to dabbling in a couple of sponsored posts. From regular link-ups and loads of comments to where I am now - a multi-interest blogger with a local feel.
The first step is to amalgamate the four separate blogs into my main blog, here at Mad dog woman of Shackleford, which is where I feel most comfortable. Then, Living with Mom's cancer will be published as the little hand-book I always intended. My blog on grief, bereavement and dying matters will continue at Talkhealth.
My photography and art blog will eventually move to a new home with a local art society, where the work will be better displayed, and cards and prints can be purchased.
The science blog will remain at the heart of my blogging, tackling social issues, common sense in general medicine, social enterprise and showcasing local charities and societies I support.
I hope that my blog at Surrey Life magazine will continue, as this is a great way to talk all things dog in Surrey. Read my latest post Ramblers everywhere, and not a dog in sight.
