In Other News

I’ve also been invited to guest blog over at a blog called “Defying Shadows” (  It’s about breaking the stigma attached to mental health issues and reaching out to those who suffer from mental illness.  I’m in conversation with the admins about what exactly my role will be.  IT has a much larger following that my little blog, so I am definitely interested in reaching out to more people.

I wrote one blog post for them during May for Mental Health Awareness Month on bipolar disorder, so since that went well, I’m hoping doing more with them will work out as well.  I’m trying not to overcommit because I know spring always comes around.  But I’m really looking forward to all the opportunities that are coming my way.  Hope everyone has a good rest of the week!

    I do plan to cross-post when I can, so you’ll see the work I do for them there over here, too.
