Blogging : Out with the old, in with the old, in with the new

Once there was a little blog.

Tiny, in fact.

It was even named after it’s size.

As in tiny light at the end of the tunnel or at the end of a long, dark night of the soul.

Tiny light was intended – as the subtitle stated – to assist people in self-helping their way out of depression.  With posts exploring humour, music, plant remedies, light and animal therapy, self-help books.  You name it.  However, the site never really “took off” as it were.  But in a way, that doesn’t matter.  Because Tiny Light taught me so much:

How to create my own website.  How to publish blog posts.  How to include links.  Respond to comments.  Insert images and photos.  How to share on social media.  So, so much.  Which I absolutely hope and expect will help me on my onward, online journey.

Because the time has come to either renew Tiny Light or lay her to rest.  Extinguish her, as it were.  So I have chosen the latter, with a sense of nostalgia and also gratitude.

And as I perused the pages for perhaps the last time, it occurred to me that a few of the posts might also be of interest to those reading an author website.

I have always been a sucker for inspirational quotes, so you will find below a link to a post extolling the virtues of Emily Dickinson’s poem “Hope”.  And another, on Walt Whitman and more.  And last but not least, an article on Poetry Therapy, a subject very close to my heart and one that I love sharing.

So I hope you find some value in these posts.


Until the next time …

Keep on shining
