I first started blogging after my 12-year-old (oldest) child died suddenly in Feburary 2013. I initially logged everything that happened during those terrible days so that my friends and family could understand what we’d been through.
I post at Chasing Dragonflies.
Over time, the blog developed into an outlet for my grief and memories of Abi. Through my blog, I’ve also set up a dedicated area for others grieving a child, called the Comfort Zone. I’m touched that I have such a dedicated following of readers of this blog and have been contacted by a number of parents who have since found themselves in this terrible ‘grief club’. It really does help to know that you are not alone.
However, I found I have other stories and opinions I wanted to share, so I set up Mummy Writes… as a general parenting blog.
I hope you like the designs too. The very talented Helen Braid worked her magic for me! You can find her at @EllieAllAtSea on Twitter
