Things To Come



I have some exciting plans and new things for this blog which I will be introducing over the next few months and into the new year. My goodness has this year flown by! I'm thinking of christmas shopping already! Okay where was I, back to blog plans. I've posted before on how I want to take this blog in a new direction and I've come up with some pretty exciting ideas that I just have to share them with you! After all, these changes effect you the reader also.

BUT, before I go off on a tangent and end up discussing how....yeah I don't really know where I was going with that, so anyway, I wish to inform you that my other blog The Endometriosis Diaries is back up and running. YAY! So head on over there and check it out. Be sure to let me know what you think.

Moving on, we have Invisible Illness Awareness Week coming up on the 13-19 of September, which I will be blogging for of course. This is my first time EVER to participate as a blogger and I am so excited! I can't wait! The thing I love about this week is that you don't have to be a blogger to get involved and although I'll be blogging for the cause throughout the week, it is something you as readers can be apart of too. This years campaign is 'everyone can reach one', so next week in preparation, I'll dedicate a few informative posts about the campaign and how YOU can help reach out to one person living with invisible chronic pain.

World Arthritis Day is getting closer too, less than two months to go! It's on the 12th of October and I will also be joining this campaign to help raise awareness of arthritis in all its forms.

Okay, back to the blog news. I've been doing a huge amount of thinking about this blog and I have decided that drastic change is definitely in order. I've come up with so many ideas (my head is about to explode) and here is what I have come up with:


  • New website. Yes, this means a brand new design to complement my other blog.
  • Switching to a custom domain. This means that I will have a registered domain name, so instead of the web address being the title.blogspot.com it will just be the title.com or something like that. Pretty cool, huh?
  • New blog name. Yes, I am changing the name to a much shorter one. Don't worry, I'm still sticking with the same theme but the new name works much better with the new site. You'll see.
  • Blog logo. I have the design ready to go and it looks pretty cool if I do say so myself.
  • Blog merchandise. Now you probably think I'm crazy, but a girl can dream can't she? I'm seriously considering creating blog merchandise but this will be like way, way down the track. I have some really great ideas which have been inspired by some pretty awesome blogs. So, you may be thinking that I really need to get a life outside of blogging but right now blogging makes me happy and it is getting me through the tough times, so blogging is what I'll do. Simple. You have to wait and see my blog logo to understand exactly what I am talking about and see just how cute the merchandise will look. I can't wait to show you!
So, what blog topics are coming up? I hope to do some posts on inflammation, acne, vitamin D and dealing with and managing flare-ups. I also hope to do a series, focusing on all things chronic illness related. What life is like with a chronic illness, coping tips, how to encourage the chronically ill and stuff like that. I also intend on making a whole bunch of non medical related topics a permanent part of this blog too. So yeah that is where we are heading and I've just realised that I say 'so' a lot, although who doesn't?! It's funny what writing can reveal to you, so.........be excited! I am! I bet you like how I linked that one in. Yeah you did.

I also still have that exciting news to tell you, but I'll keep you hanging for a little longer. Ha! So, (there is that word again) busy and exciting times ahead. Looking forward to sharing them with you!
