As 2020 is coming to a close, it’s time for me to reflect on my writing year.
I’ve so enjoyed blogging plus writing articles for The Mighty.
I’ve also recently launched my Podcast, Medical Musings With Sam, which has proved to be a wonderful way to bring my blog posts to life.
So this blog post is simply to say “Thank you”!
Thank you for reading. Thank you for listening.
Thank you for sharing my work on Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook, Instagram etc.
Thank you for reaching out with your comments of encouragement.
Thank you for sharing with me your own insights and life experiences.
Thank you for your love and well wishes throughout my chronic illness journey.
So, without further ado, I’d love to share with you my top blog posts, articles and podcasts for the year, as voted by my followers.

I was very excited this year to be appointed as a “Super Contributor” to The Mighty. This wonderful initiative provides direct access to work with editors, attend writing workshops online, opportunitues to be paid for articles, plus much more.
I have now written 60 articles for The Mighty over a 3 year period. I can’t quite believe it’s been so many! I promise I won’t share all 60 here, but you can check out My Author Page at your leisure if you’d like some holiday reading!

Introducing My New 2020 Initiative….My Podcast
It has been such a delight to start my Podcast this year. I can’t thank my regular followers enough for helping me launch this new initiative.
I was so excited to include 3 interviews with 3 special ladies in my life.
Nik Watson is a beautiful friend and co-administrator on my FB Support Forum, Medical Musings with Friends. Nik has lived with Lupus since childhood and later in life Rheumatoid Arthritis was added to her chronic illness diagnosis list. She is so inspirational and I think you’ll enjoy joining us as we chat and laugh together in this special interview.
My 2nd Interview was with my lovely daughter in law, Shannon Moss. Her amazing health journey with Intracranial hypertension is so worth listening to. She also openly shares her mental health journey which I know has resonated with so many listeners.
Shannon is an absolute delight and she announces some very exciting news in this interview!
My 3rd Interview was with a very special long time friend and ex work colleague, Kaye South. Her story of courage and determination to raise a family, hold down a Leadership career, all while battling a benign brain tumour, severe Scoliosis, bowel cancer, Osteoporosis and much more, is truly inspirational.
Lastly, my own story of faith and hope has also been one of my most popular Podcasts
I’m so looking forward to more writing adventures in 2021. The joy of writing never grows old. I hope I can continue to connect with you, my readers, in a meaningful way, as I share “my life of faith and hope living with a rare disease”.
Thank you so much for sharing “My Medical Musings” journey with me. ❤
