Why do you blog. Recent events have made me ask myself this question. I started reading blogs a number of years ago. I wanted to join in but being insecure and worrying about my dyslexia I believed I couldn't do it. I had a cancer scare, I carried it on my own, I watched three people pass away from this illness and I started to think about my own children, how would they would remember me and all we did together. Soon the urge to join in and feel like I belonged someplace overtook my insecurities and before I knew it I was blogging. Recording all the nice bits in my life, happy times with my children, what we did, a record of our holidays and quality times. Like most of us in blogland we keep away from the rubbish in our lives choosing to record only the positive. I had a place to store my pictures which improved my skills. I became more focused on my creative side and found that people would commission work, I was asked to write for two local magazines. A lot has come out of my blog.

An invaluable record of my time with my children that they are able to look at and enjoy.
Work, commissions and photos sold as art.
General focus in my life.
Keeping in touch with friends and Godparents
Yes indeed its been a fabulous place for me. Yes I know my dyslexic meanderings can be a bit tiresome. I have even received emails pointing me in the direction of correctness. I force no one to read my blog, the choice is yours. Mainly I do it for my children.
Sadly I am forced to end this happy relationship as I watch my blog be used as a tool of manipulation. At present it is not the safe place for me and my boys that it was.
I am still here, I am still in blogland and I hope very much to return soon.
Thank you for all your support, each and every comment, the friendship and creative spirit here is wonderful, if I have inspired just one person I am happy.
Take care my friends, make play, friends and family a focus in your lives and craft on.
