The End of Pigtails and Army Boots

on September 1, 2013

I promised to write this blog a while ago but have had so many things to blog about that I kept leaving it! So I thought it’s about time I wrote it.

For those who know me- I used to do a radio show called Pigtails and Army Boots. I decided earlier this year to make it only an occassional podcast and focus on the writing side of my life, by changing it to a weekly blog post. I’m sure those of you who have been keeping track of my blog will have noticed that I haven’t wrote a weekly Pigtails blog for sometime now.

There won’t be anymore. I found that I recorded two special podcasts since I stopped doing my show, and I haven’t felt inclined to do anymore. The blog posts were okay to begin with, but then it just started to feel like work and I wasn’t really enjoying writing them- it’s something I was meant to be doing for pleasure, but I was no longer getting any pleasure so what was the point?

So, as sad as it is to give up something that was a part of my life for quite sometime, it’s now time to wave goodbye in full to Pigtails and Army Boots and DJ Moonlight. I’ve changed some of my usernames to reflect this and I’ll be doing the same with my wordpress account.

I’m really grateful to all the radio stations that ever took my show, and to all the people that ever listened to it. I met loads of cool people thanks to doing it and got to use it to help me organise some brilliant gigs. I discovered amazing music, which I will continue to listen to and support the scene of female fronted music as well as independent/unsigned artists.

My passion is writing and I’ll still be writing reviews etc for various sites and the odd piece on here when I’m inspired to do so, blogging about spiritual things has became really enjoyable now, that not to long ago I have started writing a spiritual book which I hope will become something I can share with the world.

The facebook page will be coming down tomorrow- you can now like my new page:
