Back when I first started this blog eight years ago, there weren’t many of us. Just a relatively small group of bloggers sharing our experiences. We all supported each other through difficult times. Circumstances changed in my life and I was forced to shut down this blog for awhile.
When I returned to blogging about a year later, it was like WOW! There were mental health blogs everywhere. The once small close-knit group exploded into a major network. The community grew tremendously, yet I was happy to see bloggers were still supporting each other. I will admit that when I quit blogging, I felt like a major link – when I returned, however, I felt like a small fish in a big sea waving to get attention. Being the moody person with bipolar that I am, my feelings were hurt. I got over it.
Six month ago, circumstances changed in my life and I stopped blogging again. Fortunately, my life became more balanced and I became able to multi-task, and here I am back again. Lo and behold, I found many of the blogs I use to read are gone. Most of the others I follow have gone to writing only occasionally. Some posting only once a month or so.
So, I’m back and I’m looking for suggestions. They don’t have to be just about bipolar, blogs about mental health in general are great too. I did look through Raeyn’s excellent Bipolar Bloggers Network, but I’m still looking for more. I’m open to any and all blogs that you recommend, but any that are a little on the lighter side would be especially helpful.
Lay it on me. What are some great blogs that I may be missing out on? I’m positive there are many out there that I’m missing out on. Help me out and let me know what you suggest.
