Serial blogging

Okay I admit it…I do blog elsewhere and it means my favourite type of blogging here – where I have no restrictions – does sometimes take a back seat. But there I’ve come clean and I’m surprised too- yes I am a serial blogger!


It started innocently enough with our local on-line regional tourism board asking for applications from local bloggers and examples of previous blogs. I told them that I like exploring local outdoor spaces and referred them to this blog as my only example of previous work – how much trouble could that get me into?? Well maybe only a few of us responded because before I realized it I was staring down the barrel, caught in the web (insert appropriate cliche here) of  a once every two week publication deadline!

Caught in a web

And I couldn’t just blather on about whatever I wanted like I do here…and even worse I had to check my grammar and spelling all the time!

Well here I am 6 months in and they’ve just signed me up for another six…if I seem a little frazzled it’s because I’m going on vacation soon which means I need to have a couple of extra columns ready to go! Take this posting as a warning – be very careful what you ask for…

  1. Looks like you got what you asked for… 🙂 I run a couple of blogs, too, but only my own. It puts quite a different pressure on when it’s for somebody else, doesn’t it. Sounds like you have fun, though, so what better then. Enjoy your holiday – if you get time…

    I took a peek at 2 posts on your other site but was unable to comment. Looks very good – just don’t forget us!

    • No there are no comments allowed on that site – that’s why I like this blogging better! I enjoy the blogs, like yours for sure, that I follow so I’m not going anywhere. Thanks for your interest!

    Happy hols! 🙂
    I checked the link too. It does make you feel valued to write for even just a token, doesn’t it?
    I used to write for a profit sharing enterprise called Simonseeks but they ran into cash difficulties, which is how I started blogging 🙂

  4. Thanks and no real hardship on the blogs since what it does it get me out to interesting local places and then I have to come up with 500 coherent words!

    Congratulations on your double-blogging life, frazzling though it is, and enjoy your holiday. After you complete those advance posts! (My professional life was writer & editor, so I know the deal…)

    Your new-found creative purpose is an inspiration, and your photos are exquisite, especially the one of Payton. Bon Voyage, France isn’t it? Looking forward to the blog report of that trip.

  9. They obviously think highly of you! Congratulations! And I hope you have a fabulous holiday xx

    I’ve had a glance at your other blog site and look forward to exploring it later. I’m not sure I’d enjoy a holiday if I knew there was a blogging deadline looming. My own self-imposed ones are bad enough……. Anyway, enjoy your holiday!

    Have you put up the URL/title of your other writing place and I’ve missed it? Are you writing under the same name? Or a glamorous nom de plume? Have an enjoyable vacation, Agnes

Would love to hear your thoughts
