Two Blogs Become One

I don't know if you know it but I have another blog ("had" if you are reading this far in to the future). A blog where all things creative reigned... which is actually how this blog started out its life.

But recently I have come to the realisation that it would be if I just had the one blog and so I've decided to condense the two blogs in to one. So eventually my other blog - The Creative Life - will disappear (which is why I haven't linked to it - if the link is still over on the right feel free to visit while you still can).

So over the coming weeks things may change around here, my blogging schedule will change, posts previously unseen on this blog will appear in the archives (hopefully, I'm not all that technologically minded).I say weeks as I'm kind of lazy, so it will probably be that very little happens for weeks and then all the posts/changes will appear in one go.

I will try and deal with any dead links... but there will always be those ones that get away.

Bear with me... :)

Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.

Previously On Creatively Speaking...

Creatively Speaking came about on my other blog - the Creative Life (which may or may not still exist when you read this).

Last year when I challenged myself to do something creative every day (which I managed - all except my birthday - but if you are going to take a day off!). From March last year until the end of the year I also included doing something writing related every day.

So each week I would have a recap of creative things I had done that week, even if one day it had just been painting my nails, colouring in a page in a colouring book or reading some of a writing reference book.

So with the decision to condense my two blogs in to one I also decided to move Creatively Speaking over to this blog.

It's taken me a while to get round to this since deciding to cease writing on my other blog (but I have mentioned that I can be quite a lazy blogger!)

So here's how I think Creatively Speaking will evolve now it has moved. I will continue posting about my recent (hopefully) creative output (hopefully every week) but will intersperse these posts with posts about other creative things - there's a whole world of creative YouTubers out there!

Speaking of YouTubers on my old creative blog I also occasionally posted links and videos that I had found motivational and/or helpful, something I plan to continue over here.

Til the next Creatively Speaking post (which, as this was a recap, will technically be the first).
