Life, Love and Lollipops

This weekend was the long awaited “Mummy Blogger’s” conference, CyberMummy11. I had been looking forward to it for ages. I couldn’t wait to see bloggers that I had previously met, and meet others that I felt I already knew.

Although, part of me wondered if I was out of my depth.

I’m not a writer. Not really. I like to kid myself that I might be, but I’m not. I read other peoples blogs, and they ARE writers. Their posts flow nicely and they are deep and meaningful. My 400 twitter followers pale into comparison to their thousands.

This blog, ‘kin Hodgkin’s started as a cancer blog. And there was plenty of cancer to blog about.

Now? Not so much, and I have felt for a while now that I needed to do one of two things: 1) Stop blogging or 2) Rebrand.

Both of these scare me. I don’t want to stop blogging. I enjoy it. Sometimes I get writers block, and I go quiet for a week and I find myself sat in front of my laptop wondering exactly what to write about.

Rebranding? Changing my blog name, blog url, blog design. Scary stuff. What if no one reads it? What if it’s all for nothing?

I don’t feel like ‘kin Hodgkin’s has a future. I need to move on from my cancer, and that means moving on from this blog. I won’t be deleting this blog, just like I can’t erase the fact I had cancer. That will always be a part of me, and so will ‘kin Hodgkin’s.

The new one will be up and running soon, and I will post here to let you know when that happens so you can come on over and join me. I hope you will.

    I can’t wait, it’s an exciting new chapter.
    And can i say – you ARE a writer. You may not indulge yourself with words (a bit self-indulgent if you ask me, I do it all the time!) but you ARE a storyteller. And i have been along your journey this past year, and found it compelling and moving. So i’m excited about what comes next…
