Some Changes to Bear Skin

I have been making some changes to Bear Skin over the last few days. You may or may not have noticed if you visit the blog site itself.

I have recently made the web url http://www.bearskindigital.com the primary domain of the page to reflect the blog name, and to distinguish it from other websites of a similar title. The old url http://www.bearskin.org will simply redirect to the new address and no links will be lost.

Second, I have updated the ‘About Me’ section of the blog.

Third, I have rearranged the menu to reflect a new organisation to the blog structure. Basically, I seek to write more frequently. I will continue to post weekly articles about authors, their work, plays, films, and essays and continue to share original poems and writing related quotes. However I’m going to add to Bear Skin more ‘personal’ reflections, learnings and thoughts.

I enjoy engaging with any comments on the blog and seeing where traffic and visitors are coming to the blog from all around the world.

Do drop a line sometime.

Bear Skin is One Year Old

On October 8th, 2014 the first post for Bear Skin was made. Fear and Exhilliaration expressed my trepidation starting a blog, beginning to put my thoughts out into the world to be read.

Since then, the blog has gathered over 110 followers, 150 Facebook fans and over 8300 hits from around the world. While it’s still small, writing this blog has given me great pleasure, arguably more pleasure for me than for the readers!

Nevertheless, the one year marker is a chance to pause and thank YOU for being a part of that.

Humans of New York – Iran

A favourite blog of mine is Humans of New York. This recent post reminded me of the universal love of stories, literature, and poetry and the capability of art to deepen, widen and enrich our lives.

“I’ve fallen in love with literature. I try to read for one or two hours every day. I only have one life to live. But in books I can live one thousand lives.” (Anzali, Iran)
