It’s been a while since I wrote a new post on our blog, and for a few reasons.
Firstly, life has just been very hectic lately, with Debbie’s daughter, husband, 9 month old baby and 2 dogs coming to live with us 3 months ago. The extra people in the house, especially a baby and 2 dogs, just made it harder to focus on all the writing that I wanted to do.
They are headed out to South Africa (emigrating) in a few weeks, as soon as the visas have been sorted out, so soon we will have the house to ourselves again. No doubt it will be then almost too quiet! The dogs have gone to new homes, so no more barking or mud trodden into the carpets, however Debbie’s grandson is now in between the crawling and walking stage, and has discovered how to shriek at a pitch and loudness that is dangerous for your health. It’s that “fun” stage where the word “NO” doesn’t seem to mean anything, so it keeps you on your toes, and nothing is safe!
Secondly, we only moved into the house at the end of October, and there are plenty of things that need doing, both inside and in the garden. It’s taken a lot of our time, but again it’s been hard to get motivated to do some things.
Thirdly and most importantly, we finally got married in April, and went to Cornwall on honeymoon. The preparations for the wedding took a lot of Debbie’s focus and time, and also mine to an extent.
Lastly, in an attempt to try and boost my online earnings, I have been writing a lot over at Associated Content. This is a great site for authors wanting to get noticed, and if you are thinking of writing to earn some money, I definitely recommend it. Click Here to register, and even if you don’t want to write, you can opt to be sent an email every time I publish a new article.
So what do I write about?
Pretty much anything really, from written articles to poetry to slideshows of our trips and local area. Topics recently have included the UK General Election, the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud, movie quizes and a lot more. Just visit my account at Associated Content and take a look.
I am hoping that as the year progresses both Debbie and I will be back writing here as well, but you can always see what we are up to, every Sunday there is a Twitter summary posted here, and on Mondays a summary of my new publications over at Associated Content.
I hope you have a chance to read some of what I have written there, and every page view counts towards my earnings total. If you do visit, please be sure to leave a comment to let me know you were there.
