I was so busy with blogging and life away from the computer that I published my 400th post on this blog without even noticing. As the summer here in the Northern Hemisphere draws to a close it is probably a good time to reflect and plan for the months ahead.
My next few posts will remind loyal readers of what I was doing earlier this year. I have lost track of much of this myself. New followers – welcome. I hope you find something of interest.

I enjoyed the whole process of entering the UK Blog Awards last year (#UKBA14). My priorities are slightly different now. I have been exercising my writing muscles by blogging. Now I am trying to write something of more lasting value. This does not leave me with the time or energy required to enter the #UKBA15.
