A Reflective Roundup Of My 2020 Blogging, Podcasting And Writing Adventures.

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.

Thank You!

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

This Is My Story Of Faith, This Is My Song

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. ❤

Take care

Sam xx

  1. SO many achievement, so very much to be proud of.

    Wow, 60 The Mighty posts, that’s amazing! I’ve got a handful but every time they say ‘we’ll be publishing this’ it’s exciting, don’t you think?

    Seriously, you have done so much, I don’t know how you keep up. Absolutely fantastic work, Sam, which is no easy feat when poorly at all. You’ve built a community, you’ve given support, raised awareness and made your voice heard. Amazing stuff! xx
