That's all folks!
After much thought, and with a heavy heart, I have decided to close this blog to the world wide web.
The recent passing of my brother has rocked me to the core.
He was the one who helped me set up my originial blog (some long time readers would remember ryley.net- I blogged there before blogging was even a 'thing'). Jacob was so far ahead of things in the online world and he was the one who encouraged me to keep writing (even when I didn't feel like it).
He is not here to read, comment, and encourage anymore.
So, for now, it is goodbye to Blog About a Bloke.
I have made so many wonderful friends through blogging, and have received so many emails from families all around the world who have a child with either a disability or Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome. These friends are the ones who have continued to be there, even though I am not blogging much anymore.
I have not yet fully decided what I am going to do with the blog.
I may continue to write in private, I may just print it all up and keep it somewhere, I may eventually start blogging here again.
Thankyou so much to all my wonderful readers. And thankyou to those who keep reading, even though I just can't seem to post anything right now.
I will be closing the Blog About a Bloke Facebook page at some point too.
Rybrae Farm will remain open as we move forward with that project. So feel free to follow that page (link is in the top right corner).

The golden sun is shining on my face.
The tangled thoughts I hear a mockingbird sing
This whole world really ain't that bad of a place"
