Today More Canals than Venice is five years old. Five years ago, frustrated at the lack of coverage of amazing things happening in the city, I bit the bullet and started my own blog. At first four blog posts a week was easy, I loved the interaction with the wide world and watching my web stats climb. Then I tried and failed to get contributors. Eventually, I committed to writing several times a month.
Times change, and I find it increasingly difficult to find the time to keep the blog up to date. I have decided to stop More Canals than Venice.
Although it may now be defunct, I will still be about. I enjoy writing about the amazing happenings in the city, so I have made the decision to join Created in Birmingham. Working in a team, I will be able to contribute to as many posts as I can. I was amused when I started blogging to be referred to as ‘the mysterious PixieSixer’ as nobody knew who I was. Today, I’m much more happy to get my name out and about (I have my own business to promote!) so I will be blogging under my real name, Annabel Clarke.
So, so long and see you over here some time. Thank you for reading and supporting me over the years.
