Blogging as a aid to recovery – How has it helped you?

Hi everyone

It’s official, amongst everything else I do, I am a Tutor for the RLC (Recovery Learning Community).

I will be teaching my first course, “Blogging as an aid to recovery” on the 18th and 25th of November and 2nd of December.

The RLC provides a range of educational, practical and creative courses, for students with mental health difficulties and their family and friends who support them.

I will be teaching students how to start a blog of their own, that they can continue to use after the course has finished.

I will be teaching students how blogging can make them to feel better and improve their quality of life through:

  • Building online relationships and friendships.
  • Communicating with like-minded people.
  • Improving communication skills.
  • Building confidence and self-esteem.
  • Giving them something to focus on.
  • Giving them a sense of purpose and a reason to get up in the morning.

Plus loads more fantastic reasons.

I would love for my students to know how blogging has aided your recovery. Please leave a message in the comments section so that I can share your story with them.

Thanks in advance.

Stay positive.

Fight To Write

Hi Everyone.

I have been busy working on my How To Book proposal about Redundancy.

Included as part of my Association of Freelance Writer’s membership, I get one appraisal per year, up to 3000 words. The deadline was today.

Working full time, I had to fight to write at all hours of the day and night to get it finished, but I know it will be worth it. I have used this service, for the third year now and I have found it to be invaluable. You receive constructive criticism from a professional in the field.

If you are a writer looking for publication, I would highly recommend it.

If you have been affected by redundancy in any way, log on to my other blog:

Write soon.
