To celebrate my blog's first birthday I thought I would have a quick browse over my archive and pick out a few of my favourite posts. Picked because either I enjoyed writing it, enjoyed the subject or it just reminds me of something special. There are quite a few to choose from so I didn't go too mad! I didn't want to bore you after all..... But of course if you want to see more of my older posts, you will find the archive on the right hand side of the blog as you scroll (Thanks in advance if you do have a look!).
My writing style has definitely changed since I first started which is great to see! (I am very glad it appears to have improved) My blog has also opened the door to other opportunities already and my posts are now sometimes posted on www.yourthurrock.com (website local to my hometown) and I also now write a seperate blog called 'Life Laundry' for the 'Essex Life' website: www.essex.greatbritishlife.co.uk .
I really hope as this year progresses more opportunities will open up and I am looking forward to seeing what my blogging future holds! (and writing future come to think of it, maybe I will actually get enough chapters of a book written to send off to someone!)
In the meatime though, I hope you enjoy going over some of my old musings and look forward to reading my future ones as much as I look forward to writing them!!
