Blogroll update

Standard

A lot of the blogs I used to read and link to have either disappeared or are no longer updated so I’ve removed them for now. I added a couple of new links but I need to find some other good new blogs. I’m sad that I can’t follow how the people whose writing I used to follow quite closely and I hope that they’re doing well.

Updates

Standard

Updated the site to the latest version of WordPress and the theme I use. Let me know if there are any problems. Also checked my analytics and I’m still getting quite a lot of hits even though I haven’t really been in a posting mood lately.

I wish more people would take a look at my sponsors though, hopefully the links at the top will be of some use to my readers and will help me fund this site (hint hint).

If anyone knows of some other good books I should promote, please leave a comment đŸ™‚

Also I started a new twitter account, click the button on the left to follow me! Wanted to keep my blog and personal one separate.

The Purpose of This Site

Standard

I originally intended this site to be more helpful for other suffering from SA/Social phobia but it had gradually degraded into a space for me to post about my own problems and more of a diary. While I am in a relatively good mood I’d thought I’d write a short update about what I intend to do here and elsewhere.

This will probably stay as my online journal of day to day dealings with things. I think it helps to have a record of these things and reading through some of my past entries has made me realise that I have come a long way over the last year.

I do  intend to write more helpful and informative material though, possibly as a section of this site using the ‘Pages’ feature of WordPress. Ideally I would like to write a sort of self help guide for teenagers with social phobia or anxiety because I think hindsight has given me a good idea of how I could have handled things much better, and although I’m not qualified to give professional advice I think some people might find it helpful to read advice from someone who’s been there. I’ve always enjoyed writing but don’t get a chance to work on things other than assigned work, discounting this website, so that’s another positive. Ideally I’d like to put it all together in to a book but that’s a bit of a pipe dream at this stage. It’ll all be under Creative Commons for now.
