It's been a bit quiet here recently but all that is about to change. Firstly, thank you for sticking with the blog in its sleepy period. And secondly, let me tell you all about the changes that are coming now that spring is here.
I called this blog 'Queens of England' because I am absolutely, totally and completely fascinated by the women who have held that rather special position. I started it just as I was beginning what's turned out to be a really exciting journey into blogging and writing online. As I started, all kinds of royal stories started breaking and I started writing about them. The blog quickly turned into a royal news site and I loved it. But now I want to go back to my roots.
There are a couple of reasons for that. Royal news and the way it's shared has changed a lot. Now, so much information is shared and discussed on Twitter and Tumblr that the joy of writing about royals on a blog has changed. And the excitement I got from it has altered too. I also, now, get to write all about royal news on other sites and I'll share more on them (including the lovely Royal Central) in future posts. But above all, I wanted to start thinking and writing and talking about the Queens of England again. So that's what I'm going to do.
On the left hand side of this page is a menu where I've tried to explain what I want to share on this site. I want to talk about all those amazing queens, follow in their footsteps with some travel and talk about how their stories are told in films and books.
And I'd love to hear from you. Let's share our thoughts on all those wonderful women who spent every day proving they were more than the shadows of men. And if you have suggestions or would like to add a blog post then please say hi, I can't wait to hear from you.
Welcome back to Queens of England.....
