Why I started my blog - In all honesty I had never considered starting a blog, for the simple reason I didn't think I had a topic to cover. There are sooo many fashion and beauty blogs out there that I felt the world wouldn't need yet another one.
So here we are 'Colitis and ME'.
How have I found it? - As a whole, I am really enjoying myself! I find the writing pretty easy, I tend to just woffle on anyway and can talk for hours. What I am finding more tricky is trying to figure out what all the features of Blogger and Google+ do. Though I feel I am getting better with time.
The feedback and support I have had has been wonderful. I have found such a huge support network with the Corhn's, Colitis and IBD members. Though I am conscious about the wider audience that I hope I can attract to my blog, for the main reason I wanted to blog was to raise awareness of the illnesses.
Yes I have Ulcerative Colitis but I am also ME. There is a lot more too me, I am not defined by my illness. Hopefully there is a bit for everyone.
On the down side, I wish more of you cheeky monkeys would join in. I can see my visitor counter rising though many don't leave any comments.
How do I feel I am doing? - Average? I'm still trying to see what topics are most engaging with everyone. I don't think I have yet insulted anyone which is always a plus and I would like to say I feel I have made new online friends which is a huge bonus.
What does the future hold? - I don't know, hopefully more blogging! That's if my readers want to read more of my woffle. Who knows what the future will bring but I know that when I started my blog I was incredibly miserable and was finding it tough to deal with my Ulcerative Colitis. I had hit a brick wall and was finding it tough, but engaging with people through my blog is not only a distraction it is also a comfort to know I have your support. However, what I do know... is that it's time for a nice hot bath.
