“I love blogging and can’t believe how big it is,” she said.

“I feel that I have accomplished a lot in 29 years.

“You can still find me in Halifax blogging at restaurants and my favorite place, the Piece Hall. I’m still around and have been doing a lot of blogging for music gigs over the past few weeks.

“I also blog for the shows in theaters in Bradford.
