This was my 365th blogpost in 2018.

In March 2017 I set myself the challenge of writing a blogpost every day.

First blog post

In May 2017 I received a cancer diagnosis and said farewell to my blog.

Last blog post

But then in November 2017 I returned to my blog.

Well, here we are again!

And today was the 365th blogpost.

I was still having chemotherapy and a monoclonal antibody treatment called Cetuximab every two weeks. My last CT scan showed that my disease was stable and I could continue with the treatment for as long as it proved to be effective.

So, what to do with 3sixtyfiveblog?

I’d reached my goal and met my challenge; albeit not quite in the time frame I anticipated when starting the blog.

I’ve had several blogs over the last several years. Some I’ve deleted; others I’ve re-vamped and a couple are just left floating in cyberspace. What to do with this blog?

I enjoyed researching and writing 3sixtyfiveblog but I needed more time for my Family History researches and blogposts. So, what to do?

Write fewer posts!

But then it wouldn’t really be a 365 blog, would it?

So, I’m going to stop and say goodbye.

Thanks for reading my blog today and all the other days if you’ve been a regular visitor.

According to Blogging.org there are

1,883,637,867

blogs on the Internet in 2018.

I don’t know how you found mine (apart from a few family, friends and Twitter friends) but I hope you’ve enjoyed reading some of my 365 blogposts.

All the best,

FEBRUARY 1st 2021

After I wrote the above, my chemotherapy continued for many months but one day my oncologist said he was going to ask the surgeons to review my case. The tumours had shrunk and he thought there was a possibility of a good outcome if I had surgery. During 2020 I had two major operations and now I’m well on the road to recovery. My CT scan in November 2020 showed that for now, I’m cancer free. I have to have scans and blood tests regularly but I’m starting to pick up the threads of my life. I’ve been re-visiting this blog and have started getting it up to date and then I’m going to continue with daily blogging. So…….watch this space!

  1. Well done for reaching your target, Cathy. Quite an undertaking!
    Do the stats take into account those blog visitors who read your blog in their email inboxes, as I do, I wonder? Probably not!
    Good luck with the family history research and blog!
