What Lisa Wrote is taking a break for a while.....

Hi everyone,

Regular readers of my blog will know that I suffered a mini blogging crisis a little while ago.

I've since made more of an effort to blog more regularly and try to write about things that are relevant to me, rather than blogging about what I think other people might want to read. So far I think it's been working (I hope!).

However I received some really great advice from people on my post where I suffered a waiver in blogging confidence and one piece of advice from my friend Clare has resonated with me ever since: 

"Don't blog about things because other people are, you play lots of sport. Why not post about that instead and find your own voice and different followers there, instead of floundering around in a world of bloggers you're not actually interested in but think you should be."

She's absolutely right of course, and it got me thinking - I should focus on blogging about my passions and increasingly these are based around health, fitness and sports. So I've started a new blog, called 'The Sportista' and I plan to make this a more serious attempt at blogging rather than just dabbling in it. The layout needs a bit of adjusting once I'm more HTML conversant (I'll be looking at some online tutorials soon!) but I'm really excited about this new venture and I hope any of you who have an interest in sports, health, nutrition and fitness - or just like me and my writing! - will take a look.

I'm going to be concentrating on The Sportista as my main blog going forwards however I will still update 'Whatlisawrote' sporadically with non-sports related content when I get the chance.

I've been blogging on and off for over a year now and would like to thank all of you who have read and commented on my blog so far for your support and friendship.
