My 10 ten top posts 2019

Well, it’s the last day of 2019 and tomorrow, we’ll start the New Year 2020.

This year saw me starting my blog – only in August – and I’m delighted with the steady increase in followers, the fantastic comments, the advice, the support and the likes. It hasn’t been easy at times, particularly my posts about my personal experiences. However, I’ve just read through them and, do you know what? They hurt a little less. The power of writing, eh!

I’ve chosen to share my Top 10 blog posts and as I sifted through all the numbers, I was surprised to see that “My journey through a psychotic depression Parts I – V” consistently attracted a high number of comments, all of which were supportive and positive. So I thank you for that.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for passing by, for reading some of my posts and for taking the time to comment. I’ve really enjoyed reading all your blogs too; I’ve been inspired, I’ve learnt, I’ve reflected, I’ve discovered, I’ve been impressed, I’ve cried and I’ve laughed out loud. I’ve honestly had so much fun in our blogging community and I’m looking forward to seeing what the new year brings.

  1. It’s so fun to blog and to read your posts! I really loved to read yours filled with good advice and your personal journey. You made it a bit more easier for me to reflect upon my views upon my workplace. I felt support from you and felt less crazy in my thinking about mental heath and caring for others. Best wishes for the New Year and I hope I may read more of your posts 🙂

    1. Aaawww, don’t make me cry. Thank you and as you know, I am a big fan of your blog. You write so succinctly and passionately – you should be very proud. I think you and I have a ‘mutual appreciation thingy’ going on lol. And I can’t wait to watch your blog develop even more – I love reading it 🙂

      1. Yep, I agree on the mutual appreciation 🙂 It’s so striking and so weird because we haven’t seen each other, we found each other through writing and that is so new to me. But it’s fun so no crying here! 😉
