I used to be lately knowledgeable that Psych Central was acquired by Healthline Media, which might be transitioning Psych Central’s content material onto their very own platform. Sure, that’s true.
Starting this September, we, the bloggers, is not going to be permitted to supply any new content material, as Healthline begins to prepare and curate content material on Psych Central in the course of the subsequent couple of months. Healthline could select to take many Psych Central articles offline, and these would possibly embrace content material on my weblog. Subsequently, the long run seems unsure.
So I made a decision to jot down this final weblog put up earlier than September comes.
Let me start in the beginning.
Early in 2018, I used to be given my very own weblog on Psych Central. I had written for them earlier than since 2017, however being given a weblog meant I’d have extra management over the content material. So I took benefit of this chance and started exploring a favourite subject, worry and anxiousness. I even titled the weblog accordingly, calling it “Fearless: Breaking Anxiousness Down.”
Throughout these three years, I explored many subjects: Concern, anxiousness, anxiousness issues, cognitive behavioral remedy, mindfulness, obsessive-compulsive dysfunction, post-traumatic stress dysfunction, cognitive dissonance, security, management, somatization, communication, abuse, habit, and most lately, train. I made psychology-related e-book suggestions, supplied hyperlinks to helpful websites, and even requested you for ideas about what you wished me to cowl in future weblog posts.
My posts obtained responses from you, together with notes of appreciation and criticism, questions, ideas, and private tales. I attempted to learn and reply to as many feedback as doable. Sorry in case your feedback had been missed otherwise you didn’t obtain an in depth reply. As it’s possible you’ll know, I keep a few different blogs and do analysis and writing for varied purchasers, so lack of time is usually a consider responding to feedback.
I need to thanks for having taken outing of your busy schedules to learn my ideas and reply to them, serving to me change into a greater author, educator, and human being. Realizing that what I used to be writing may need been useful in some form or kind motivated me to jot down and check out to consider new methods to supply one thing of worth.
And I need to thank the Psych Central workers for having given me this chance. A lot appreciated.
Some time again, someone requested if I had a favourite weblog put up. I’m a little bit of a perfectionist, so each weblog put up I take a look at now appears to have a whole lot of issues. The perfectionists amongst you possibly can most likely relate.
But when compelled to choose, I’d most likely select one of many first few weblog posts. Maybe as a result of I can nonetheless recall the thrill I felt on the time, having so many concepts about find out how to produce one thing recent, academic, and entertaining.
As we close to the top, let me let you know I’m nonetheless lively on-line. Despite the fact that this weblog is not going to be lively, my private weblog, Fearless Psychology (https://fearlesspsychology.wordpress.com), and my weblog for Psychology Right now (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/weblog/finding-new-home) are nonetheless lively.
So comply with me there. Learn, remark, and say what’s in your thoughts, and what you need to see lined. As massive because the Web is, typically an excellent dialogue of subjects close to and pricey to our hearts cannot be discovered anyplace. And if this subject of curiosity to you is one thing I do know or can analysis, I’d be more than pleased that will help you make sense of it.
Thanks once more. And goodbye, from Fearless: Breaking Anxiousness Down, on Psych Central.
