It’s the last day of March, which brings us to the end of Women’s History Month. In all honesty, I’m feeling a little sad about that.
Blogging about some of the less well known heroines of ancient and medieval history has been a most enjoyable occupation. I had fun creating some historical memes to accompany the posts and promote them on my social media, too.
I also loved writing about some of the courageous women who willingly took on situations of conflict, oppression and segregation in the 19th and 20th centuries.
If you missed any of those posts, they are easily found by clicking on Women, Women’s History Month or Women’s History categories and tags in the sidebar.
With those great stories told, I am feeling a little like I do when I have just finished a great book and I don’t really know what to do with myself.
Yet I know that tomorrow I will feel differently because there are some great things happening in April: not only is it (Inter)National Poetry Month, but it’s also a month-long celebration of Indie books in the Read Self Published group on Facebook.
The first half of the Pead Self Published month will feature a specific genre or set of genres each day, which readers are free to peruse. The second half of the month will be focused on helping each individual visual reader find what they want to read. There will also be some giveaways, which are always fun — especially for the winners!
Everyone is welcome to join in those events, which is aimed at showing readers what they want to read without the “hard sell” that many find offputting.
I know with all of that going on, I will have some great things to share. I will be posting some of my favourite poems on this blog, and Book Squirrel will be sharing some great reads and book suggestions in various genres.
On a personal level, there will be continued rehearsals for the show I’m in, a very well-earned and much needed two week long term break, and a camping trip over Easter that I am really looking forward to.
So, away with my sadness. I shall welcome April with open arms and a great deal of anticipation.
