#WhatImWriting announcement

It’s time for a little change at ‘What I’m Writing’ HQ. Chrissie and I have loved hosting our linky together for the last fifteen months but regular readers may have noticed that my once-prolific co-host has been rather quiet of late. She’s incredibly busy with work and kids and likes to fill all the (teeny) gaps in her schedule with novel-writing (a little birdy told me she just won another NaNo! GET IN!) which doesn’t leave much time for blogging.

Anyway, I’ll leave any more lengthy explanations to Chrissie herself but suffice to say we’ve decided that I’ll be hosting the linky on my own from now on. Which I’m happy with as I’m hooked on writing my weekly post to link up anyway. ‘What I’m Writing’ keeps me focussed. Not that my recent posts are necessarily about writing, strictly speaking, but I do think it’s an excellent discipline to make sure I’ve got a post written in time for every Tuesday. I’ve been so pushed for time recently it’s usually the only post I manage all week!

Having said that, in the past seven days I’ve published three! My Blogfest roundup, a post about gratitude (inspired by a panellist at the conference encouraging women to stop saying thank you so often. Go figure.) along with one about polar bears and parenting. And I’ve somehow squeezed in this month’s poetry and prose round-up for BritMums in the past few days too. Wowzers.

But now it’s really late at night and I have to get to bed. This post was really just to update you on the linky and point those delightful people who display my badge on their blog, in the direction of the new, updated version. This one has a ‘no follow link’ because apparently you’re supposed to add those to linky badges now or google sends you to jail or something. I have no idea.

And on that note… zzzzz

    Sounds like Chrissie has a lot on! I was mega impressed with her NaNo efforts this year. Get in indeed! I will start linking again as soon as I start writing Kate’s Story again xxx

    Thanks for the update Maddy! I don’t always post as not sure whether some of what I’m writing fits what the linky is about… But I try to read posts and share (although often forget to tag them – sorry!).

    Hope you’e well xx

      You are wonderful at sharing Rachael and I really appreciate it – don’t worry at all about tags! And don’t worry about whther posts fit perfectly – you’re such a reflective writer I bet if you’re thinking ‘could this work for what I’m writing?’ the answer would be ‘yes’! xx

    I’m a (fairly recent) newbie but just wanted to say thanks to Chrissie for being such a fab host. I completely understand the reason for the change. Maddy – you are also doing a sterling job! Thanks for having us on your blog and long live #whatimwriting

    Thank you for keeping it going! #WhatImWriting is a major motivator for me at the moment… Generally finding close to no time for blogging, even now the novel is once again out of my hands. Ho hum… xx
