My blog is seven today!

In one way it does feel like seven years but in another way it doesn’t. In that time I’ve posted 5,280 posts, created 182 pages, and replied to 9,782 comments. Over that time, the blog’s had 473,146 visits so hopefully we’ll hit the half a million mark this year. I currently tend to post the writing prompts and reblog others’ posts but I do plan to be more creative and post new content. I’m not sure what yet but it’ll certainly be useful to anyone interested in writing, so watch this space…

Please vote for my story (if you like it!)

I have a little (138-word) ditty called ‘Just Like Enid Blyton’ (see below) which has been longlisted (sixth week in a row!) on It’s quite near the beginning (fifth story): click until you get to ’77 more’. Clicking on the picture below will also take you there.

If you like it – I hope you do – please click on ‘Vote’. Voting closes midnight 11th/12th December. Thank you!
