I’m changing as a person so I feel it’s only right that my blog, in some ways, changes too.
Firstly, I want to say thank you for the support I received for my last blog post – I really love to hear people’s thoughts on my pieces.
Now, some of you have been following my journey through my blog since the day I sat down to write my first post, over 4 years ago, in the canteen of the Royal Marsden Hospital, aged just 14. I had just started treatment for brain and spinal tumours and never would have guessed that four years later I would be enrolled at university studying for a journalism degree.
Well here I am – and it’s been a long damn road, most of which I have written about and shared here on Cecilia-Joy. But now, as I grow and move onto a new part of my life, as I change and evolve into a young woman and eventually let go of my teenage years, I think it is time that I bring my blog along with me. I’m changing as a person so I feel it’s only right that my blog, in some ways, changes too.
I want to start exploring new avenues, writing about topics that previously you wouldn’t expect to see on my blog. As a journalist in training, I feel that it is time for me to start working on researching and reporting the fascinating world that we all live in. Therefore, I hope in this way to produce new and interesting content for you to enjoy on a more frequent basis. And yes, I am aware that’s the umpteenth time I’ve promised regular blog posts but this time I think I’m finally going to fulfil it- no more empty words.
However, I want to stress that the evolution of my blog doesn’t mean that I’m going to stop writing about the things I’ve always been, and always will be, passionate about. So, I will still continue to write about organ donation, my life and my journey as a recipient and living with long-term illness, as it is very much still a part of my life and who I am – it will likely still influence a lot of what I write. But you can expect to see a much wider range of posts now.
So, there we are: here’s to turning a new page – whilst making sure to turn back every so often to remember what we’ve left behind!
See you next week with a fresh and unique post!
