Continuing to Blog about Bipolar Issues and More

Dear Friends,
I just received another comment about my decision to stop blogging about bipolar issues and move on. I have also received a few ideas about ways to continue this blog but include it in a larger site. That's what Danielle did with the Bipolar Diaries, which is now a part of My Name is Danielle. It makes sense. So...I'm noodling all this in my brain--which is how I make decisions--and thinking about options. But it seems likely it will work. Thanks for your support. I'll keep you posted.

Susan

P.S. Tony--I haven't heard from you and I'm concerned. Let me know you're okay!

Good to hear, Susan. Now that I'm back to regular posting, I'm back to regular reading! I look forward to reading new posts from you should you continue blogging (even infrequently).

Thanks Marissa,
Thank you! I'll start reading you again as well. I visited periodically when you were gone. Hope things are going well for you!

Susan,

Your writing could apply to anyone - these strategies you openly discuss. This is good information for any person in any situation.

The 'bipolar' gets lost somehow - in the best of ways with your work.

In fact, I think you do a service for a great number of people who have this label - by showing the world that there isn't any real, tangible separation between the 'well' and the 'ill' - we are all just beings doing our best to find our way through....

I see many 'normal' people who don't put the time into finding out how to make their lives more meaningful, and their experience any richer.....

You, on the other hand keep searching for ways to do exactly that.....

If you decide to change the name of the site, or slightly alter the format, I hope you realize that you already have a universal audience in many ways.

Life management is a subject worthy of discussion for anyone -'bipolar' or not bipolar....

I hope you keep posting. I agree that you have a loyal following of readers no matter what you write. I for one have been educated, entertained, and had my emotions touched when reading your posts. Thanks!

Dear Kj,
Thanks so much! It's very sweet of you to write. I am going continue to blog--I just need to figure it all out. But hearing from everyone has made all the difference!

Dear Nancie,
Thanks for your comment, and your support. I'm realizing that I can write about this and other things I care about. I'm just trying to figure out a format in which to do it. So, this blog is a "go." But hopefully, within the next month or so, I'll have a new format.
