In 2005, I created a blog honoring famous widows in history; sharing their stories, how they managed their grief, in hopes of encouraging newly widowed to move forward with their new lives. I promoted writing practice, journaling, and memoir; I offered a free ebook; tips, shared resources and information. The blog quickly morphed into a website. Today, there is Linda's Place *a confidential meetup fb place*; website, and it continues to grow to be more than I dreamed it could ever be. All of my writing, work and hosting has been done at personal expense. At this time, I can no longer do this alone and yet, grief relief grows, and just as I think of shutting down Griefcase, some new catastrophe or sadness occurs, prompting new requests for assistance, and just when I think I am done, I realize work assisting individuals through the grief process is only just begun.
I need assistance with getting the word out to local vendors, sponsors, organizations, anyone able to work me through the challenges of maintaining a website, posting, and more. I need assistance doing a radio show, blog posts, newsletter, and more. Individuals trained in berevement counseling, willing to give of time.
If anyone out there in my community with specific credentials pertaining to all or none of above, sincerely interested in supporting individuals through the grief process, kindly feel free to contact me.
