WOYWW 233 - Winding down...


Hello again!

I'm afraid I've been rather absent from the desk party lately...

You may know I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the sheer size of the party, and you gave me some very thoughtful and helpful comments, so thank you for that!!

I've also been busy on this course with Susannah Conway


I've been doing a lot of thinking about why I blog, and what kind of blog I want to create...

This is why yesterday I created a brand new blog, where I plan to pull together my favourite bits of writing and photography from my past few years in Blogland. I created my first blog in September 2006!

I've only just started 'another deep day', and there's A LOT to be done, but it is up and ready to receive visitors :)

All this means I'm thinking of winding down this blog...

I will keep posting each week up to the end of the year, but my main focus will be the new blog...
I don't know where it will go, and in what form, but I do know a new start is called for.

I hope you will drop by my new blog home from time to time. It's been such fun meeting you all over at Ms Julia's, and I know I'll stop by occasionally, to say hello and catch up a bit :)

In the meantime, I wish you all a really wonderful WOYWW, and a fun-filled crafty week xxx

The new blog sounds like a great venture, as you've thought carefully about what blogging means to you. I do hope that it is a great success. I will certainly drop by as you have been an inspiration to me, Claire. Please keep in touch. Julie Ann xx #29

Good morning.
I know it can get overwhelming at a big party. I'll be popping by your new place and wish you well in your new direction.
Hope you have a good week too.

I thinks it's good to stand back and have a think and decide where your going .... I know around this time last year I did the same and it took about 6 weeks to work out where I wanted to go..... So good luck

How interesting Claire..please, direct us to the new blog as soon as you'd like us to visit there. It doesn't matter how infrequent your WOYWW participation is, and nor is there any obligation to comment on the whole list each week..good grief, it's meant to be fun! Meanwhile, from the shallow and self absorbed end of things, I wish you well..above all..enjoy your blogging!

Definitely your blog should be what you want it to be and if it morphs and changes then more power to it. People are dynamic and ever changing. Happy blogging!

Hello Claire,

I like what you created to use as the banner (maybe?) of your new blog. I think we all go through this "wondering about our blogs" every now and again. My blog doesn't focus on just one thing and I no stretch blog regularly. I work full time and it's difficult most of the time, which it shouldn't be!

Good luck in your new venture!!!

Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (6)

I know what you mean about being overwhelmed. I can't possibly get around to but a smattering of the WOYWWers. I will follow your new blog. :) #77
