Yes, as the saying goes, we must come to an end! With much discussion the Chicks have decided to close down The Prairies. This was not an easy decision and one that makes me very sad. But it was a decision that needed to be made.
Many of us are venturing out with our own blogs (some new, others already established). And we’re all busy writing. Add to that the incredible busy lives we all lead with jobs and families something had to give. Unfortunately, it is the blog.
But we’re not going to just hang a “Closed” sign on the front door immediately. Over the next month you’ll be hearing from each of us (starting on Monday with Helena). The first two weeks of October will be used to discuss what this blog meant to us, what we gained from our contributions and how we’ve grown as writers. The last two weeks will be to share our future goals, our continuing journey in our writing careers, and to let you all know where you can find our individual blogs and websites. Then, as of October 29th, The Prairies will be silent.
We plan on leaving the blog active – almost two years of writerly articles and fantastic guest posts are archived here. We hope that you’ll come back often and use our site as a writing resource. The labels are very helpful in finding exactly what you need in your writing development and the ‘search’ button at the top can also be of assistance when you’re looking for a specific article.
I’ll take this time to thank all of our readers and our guest bloggers for making Prairie Chicks Write Romance a success. We look forward to seeing you on The Prairies for another month as we wrap up this endeavor.
And, to my fellow Chicks, it has been a pleasure working with you. I’m looking forward to reading your posts on what the blog has meant to you and what the future holds for you.
