Happy New Year everyone!!! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and that 2020 has got off to a cracking start!
I am extremely excited about the year ahead and I’m kicking things off with a (semi) return to the blog! Whey!
I stopped blogging here a while back as most of you know. After the whole blogging guidelines thing came into play things started getting complicated and I no longer felt any joy from my blog. When I first started posting way back in 2012, it was all about the writing content, now it’s about the images that go with it, the presentation, which is fine but takes so much more work and I felt that the writing side of things was being neglected in favour of fancy imagery. Rather than a hobby, blogging, youtube-ing, instagram-ing and so on have all turned into business platforms and to an extent social media now seems like a competitive nightmare rather than a pleasure.
So I’ve decided to strip the blog back, amalgamate it with my author website, and turn it into more of a resources page for readers of my books, budding authors, aspiring writers… and of course, lovers of all things Greek.
I’ve made a few changes – for example, there is now a resources tab with a drop-down menu which will lead you to (what I think is) useful information about blogging, writing and children’s education in the home. You may have noticed that the landing page of my blog is different! There will be lots of ongoing tweaks as I want my blog to be as accessible and easy to use as possible.
There is also a direct video link to my YouTube channel and I’ve created an Amazon storefront where you can find links to products, children’s toys, books, and Greek ‘stuff’ that I recommend. You can check out my latest video NEW YEAR NEW GOALS below and if you like my YouTube content please do subscribe as it would really help me reach my subscriber goals!!
ANOTHER change that I am really excited about is the introduction of FREE downloadable worksheets that I have created / will be creating over the course of the year. These worksheets will cover a broad range of topics but will mostly focus on helping YOU with writing / organisation / productivity and there will also be some resources for children. I have learnt so much from the process of writing and self-publishing my books and I think it’s important to share what you have learnt with others, rather than keeping the information a secret!
SO the VERY FIRST worksheets I have for you are TWO very simple ones for anyone who wants to write. Whether you have a dream to write a novel, start a blog or just put pen to paper, my WRITING BUCKET LIST will hopefully spur you on! And if you need a bit of a kick start to ignite your creativity then why not try out my WRITING PROMPTS.
To DOWNLOAD the FREE WORKSHEETS simply click on the links below. You can then print them out however many times you like! And don’t forget to share with your friends!
I hope that this is the start of a fantastically creative new year for you all and wish you the very best for 2020!
