I am two years into writing my first novel and I am finding that it is a lonely place to be, but it is nowhere near as isolating as writing a blog.
I started writing this blog in May 2014 without giving too much thought to exactly what I was going to be blogging about. A bit like throwing myself into writing a novel but, with my first venture into fiction, a vague plotline had been eating its way into my subconscious for quite some time.
I used to blog about up-and-coming bands and artists, but I had an overwhelming need to blog about anything and everything. I needed to let rip and life’s too short to be niche.
For the first three years, I could count my daily visitors on one hand and I was thinking

My Lost Blogs are disappearing into infinity without being read.
There have been so many times when I have been tempted to throw in the blogging towel, but bloggers like Debi Stangeland will give you five very good reasons why you should keep going.
I have persevered because of supportive comments from fellow bloggers. The Blogging Brother and Sisterhood who know how cold it is out there in boundless cyberspace. You know who you are … Berte @ The Naughty Bun, Jennifer Denise Pillion @ SparkyJen.com spring to mind and Abhijith Padmakumar whose motivational blog you will find @ authorabhijith.com.
Thanks to you all … I am planning to stick around for a bit longer.
Blogging to infinity and beyond …
