It was one year ago this month that I started this blog. I wanted to breach the gap between the poor information provided by the NHS and the endless information and mis-information on the internet. I had hoped to write at least 10 posts and keep it up for at least 6 months. I managed to keep with it all year and have managed over 40 posts! Yaye me!
A lot has changed in the last 12 months, last year I was struggling on 3 hours sleep a night with one teething child and one suffering from constant itchy eczema, now I get twice as much sleep, you have no idea how grateful I am for that.
The ‘Itch Swell Ooze Wheeze’ page on Facebook wasn’t very successful, especially now they are trying to make money from page promotions. I finally got on Twitter this February after getting lots of hits from there, it seems a better place to share new blog posts than Facebook.
My favourite place to share is Pinterest, it’s a great place for hoarding useful articles and allergy friendly recipes, I would recommend any parent new to the allergy world use this as a top resource.
These were my top six posts of the last 12 months, if you missed them the first time round check the out now!
What’s to come in the next year? Anya is going to school in September; there are plenty of issues surrounding this to be covered. I am working on a series of unusual allergies posts and the subject of linked allergens can probably keep me going forever!
Thank you for reading, sharing, pinning and re-tweeting.
