Why? Well, if you have been following me for any length of time, you will be aware that this is number three in a series of personal blogs. The first one, which i shall forevermore think of as my teenage blog documents a period of rapid and exciting change. A real rollercoaster of a ride, which attracted a lot of interest.
Except: once past, that time was well and truly past, and the excitable ridiculous girl writing then is long gone.
Next up – change of pace, change of metaphor: we’re on to log flume, now! – it was off the highs and lows and ups and downs and into the clear flat water of the final straight. Blogging continued, an itch i needed to scratch: but it was, in the end, an unsatisfactory haphazard process. A lot of my writing is now “out there” in sites that range from GayStarNews to Freedom in a Puritan Age. Not to mention all the national press comment that i write from time to time. So thoughts, ideas, articles are spread much more widely across the web.
I felt…diluted: dissipated, and not in a good way. The blog’s very title – Fae Interrupted – was probably a good reflection of that.
Whereas now? Now i am ready to get going again. The last couple of years have been a time for integrating what i have gone through, what i have learnt and, at risk of sounding ever so slightly dramatic, i am ready to roll up my sleeves and get blogging once more.
This will be a mix of the personal and the political. The latter includes pieces that are both real and serious, and – current affairs being increasingly incredible – some that are not real and just as serious. To avoid confusion, the latter will always include #spoof in the tagging (and be categorised as such).
Oh! And its Fae Rising because. Because i am. Whether you like it or not. 🙂
I hope you enjoy!
