In aid of National Poetry Day

In aid of national poetry day on Thursday, I thought I would go back and have a look at all the poems that I have written on my blog.

The start of the book has her personal story on  how she started blogging as a diary to record her daughter’s life. It then developed from there into a business with opportunities to go travel and receive things that were earned from her hard work and dedication to her blog. Continue reading “Blogs Change Lives”
