To my wonderful readers,
I started A Chick Named Hermia about two and half years ago, simply wanting something that would encourage me to write regularly.
I had NO idea what I was getting myself in to.
I have met wonderful people, read posts by so many amazing writers, made ‘real world’ friends and discovered my ‘style’.
I also became part of a community that I could always turn to in times of trouble.
A Chick Named Hermia has become more than I ever dreamed it would be.
It also became a blog that was a million miles from the first draft.
At first, it was simply a place I could post random bits and bobs I came across, but gradually it became a part of me and all of you ended up submerged in my life.
I love sharing my stories with you and your feedback has been invaluable, but not everyone can be as lovely as you lot.
There are some trolls out there and they’ve made writing here very difficult.
I’ve put so much work into ACNH that ending it seemed unimaginable, but those people have stopped this blog from being what it was, which means they are winning.
And bullies should never EVER win.
I could never give up blogging completely, so while this spells the end for A Chick Named Hermia, I am in the process of setting up a new blog where I’m back in control and free to write what I want.
For obvious reasons, I can’t exactly broadcast the new URL here, but I do want to take all you lovely people who have supported me and gotten to know me over the last couple of years to the other side with me.
If you’re interested in following my adventures at their new location, enter your contact info below and I’ll send you the URL as soon as the new blog is up and running (next couple of days).
Those of you who don’t wish to follow, thank you so much for the support you’ve given me up to now, and to those who decide to continue following me, it’s you lot who make starting over worthwhile.
Til we meet again,
