Blogs…..Blogging…..I’ve often thought, ‘Why do i do it?’ (I daresay many of you have thought the same at times). 



Me….personally….I certainly don’t do it for the ‘Hits’, I don’t even do it for the ‘Likes’ (although it’s nice to know someone out there loves me!). The ‘Comments’ are different though because i can learn something from them; how other people feel; if my blog has helped someone and made them feel less alone and it’s been worthwhile;  or whether i’ve written a load of junk and ought to delete it! 


I write because i love writing as a creative tool and form of expression, and to reach out to others. I am useless at drawing (unless you count a ‘Playschool’ house with four windows, a door and chimney!)and photography; except i do like the occasional image to break up the text (credit to Bing). I’ve had two very simple and small books published which consist mostly of poetry and ramblings about my life and about mental health. And no, this isn’t a promotion, otherwise i’d be ‘blazing’ the title and pseudonym in flying colours! I like to blog as a way to get things off my chest, sharing feelings and making friends.


So, there, in a nutshell, is the reason why i like writing and blogging about blogging. Thanks for reading, if you get this far!). x

Writing my memoirs, musings, a little fiction and a lot of poetry as a way of exploring and making the most of my life ... ... Having had a break from writing my blog for more than three years, I decided to return to write my memoirs, some day-to-day observations, views and feelings. My passion is non-fiction poetry. I have a disability and use an electric powerchair called Alfie and let nothing get in the way of living life to the full. I believe that you can never do a kindness too soon and should give credit where credit is due. A smile or a kind word could make the difference between a good or bad day for a person - we never know what's going on for another soul. Those little things, perhaps, practised daily like a mantra, could mean so much to someone else. Thank you for visiting my blog and reading a little more about me. Please, make yourself at home here. You are very welcome. Ellie x 😊


  1. I completely agree. And then I go posting about creating a Facebook page – I kind of see it as one in the same though as I’m hoping more people get something out of my writing that way. It’s all about sharing. What you write is never a load of junk by the way. I’d love to read your books too! xx

    1. Hi Mariann! I think it’s fine to have a FB page to share your work. I don’t think i’d have the courage to do it personally as it’s not as anonymous as WordPress. I’ve had serious family problems over stuff from my ‘real’ name FB page which i’d like to blog about but daren’t for fear of being ‘discovered’ here somehow and then dealing with the awful repercussions of that! A drama, i know….that’s families, (and don’t we know it!). I will contact you separately re my books. Thanks for being interested. Hugs xxx.
