Blogging?

Hi everyone.

I have decided to create a blog. I have done so on the MCMillan site. But, unfortunately, I have no idea how I write an article. Has anyone tried to find this option? Does anyone know? If not, I think I will have to contact them.

Love and hugs

Mel.

I don't like "moving on" because it sounds like leaving our loved one and all that happened behind. But I like "moving forward" because it means that, in spite of my tremendous loss and the pain about that, I move forward in my own life taking Paul with me.
