Just over a year ago I started this Blog as my first foray into non academic writing. I didn’t know where I’d end up but I just needed to do something being off work on medical leave, with very limited capacity to do anything.
Here I am a year later and I’ve been asked to write a few opinion columns a month for SooToday.
Already they have published three of my articles:
The first was a report from the local dog show. The second an insight into living with a service dog. The third about living with rare anaphylaxis as an adult. Future columns are planned on other real life issues from my experiences as somebody living with multiple invisible disabilities and probably from events as they come up in my life.
So today, I once again place this Blog in hiatus. It has served its role and served it well. However, with the changes in my life that are coming ahead I won’t have time to keep this up as well. I don’t think!
Maybe I’ll find that I miss the outlet and continue it after all. Who knows?
A year ago I would never have believed that I’d be in this position. A paid freelance journalist with a regular column. Who would have thought it?
