I started blogging for Women and Words in 2012. This place has been part of my life for almost a decade, so obviously I’m sorry to see it go on hiatus. I’ve met some great people, learned about many different places and events, and hopefully brought a little inspiration and enjoyment to others.
In the early years of my time on the blog, I lived on the south coast of England, in the bottom bit of Hampshire. Then, a change of day-job brought me back up north to West Yorkshire, an hour’s drive across country from my parents and the village where I grew up.
Through it all, I’ve been accompanied by my cats, and never usually that far from my ponies, not to mention my cars. It’s been a wild ride and I’m going to miss the inevitable rush to get my monthly post ready on Sunday night to go live on the third Monday of the month.
So what’s next? I’ll still be reviewing for The Good, The Bad, & The Unread, and on Good Reads, and I’ll still be planning new fiction, even if none of it’s made it out into the world recently. I‘ll still be having adventures with my camera, and I may revive my website as a home for the best of the photos. I’ll be going to conventions and writers’ meets when we can all get together in person again, and I may pop up occasionally on Twitter and Instagram.
I’ve loved my time here, and I’m incredibly grateful to And and Jove for keeping it all together as long as they have. Hope to see some of you elsewhere online and in real life. Good luck and happy adventuring!
