The very last post and a new blog

Yes it is.

After my public meltdown on here a couple of weeks ago, I found that I still needed to blog, but I couldn't do it here.

I think that autism has a lot to do with that: the early years of this blog largely became the story of how this family struggled to adapt to my son's challenges post diagnosis. Then I vowed not to write about it anymore, but it kept creeping into my posts, as it is still completely central to family life and how we live it.

Autism became the elephant in the room on here.

I can't write about it, but I can't write without it.

So I've started a new blog. It's a personal blog and it will feature Smiley, but there will be no mention at all of autism.

If you're still interested, please contact me at stilllookingforbluesky@gmail.com and I will give you the details.

  6. I will miss Looking for Blue Sky very much but totally understand your reasons for changing. I had similar reasons and changed my blog slightly. Still struggling to find my niche, what exactly is it I'm going to blog about? I wasn't brave enough to start from scratch so I very much applaud your bravery. The very best of luck..... xx

  7. Like many of us who've been blogging a while I seem to have lost my way with mine. Even though mine was never well read or in any top 100 I still can't write about the big stuff in mine as it affects other people not just me.
