Right, don’t panic: the monthly update is over on A Model Recommends. I have started to put the wheels in motion to merge the content here on The Uphill with my main website and so I thought that I’d bite the bullet and write any new posts straight into their permanent home. But don’t worry – it sounds drastic but it’s really not. In all honesty, nothing for you will change. Apart from the fact that you’ll potentially get more regular posts!
Even when you type in the URL to take you to this blog, it will simply redirect to the new home and will pre-filter the content so that you’re just reading posts from The Uphill. Marvellous. I seem to have a severe mental block about posting on here – I think that because it’s a second blog, it feels like double the work – and so I’m looking forward to really getting my teeth into all of the subjects I’ve been dilly-dallying about.
It’s not farewell, then – or even “see you in a while”: the monthly update you’ll have to click across to read, but after that it’s business as usual. The only thing I have to work out is how to deal with the newsletter – at the moment you only receive posts from The Uphill, but after the merge, you’ll get all of the posts from A Model Recommends as well. If you’re subscribed to both anyway, you’ll only get one email going forward (the one from A Model Recommends, which will include content from The Uphill – keep up!) but I need to have a clever think about people who only want parenting/family posts.
On that subject: I have an amazing project on the go that will hopefully delight a lot of you. It’s really quite something and has been a proper labour of love. I’m basically doubling my workload again so that’s good (note sarcasm) but it will all be worth it. It’s a totally new sort of content platform for me and will be very dynamic and interactive and I can’t wait for it to be ready. I’ll keep you very much in the loop, because I will probably need you to test it out for me and give me your feedback. If you don’t mind.
Now, clickety click here for the latest monthly update – you’ll notice it has a new name and a slightly new format. I thought it only appropriate.
