Where There's A Will

I, Iris Carden, being of occasionally sound mind and  thoroughly unsound body do hereby bequeath.....

Well, the Health Blog Post Month prompt asks me today what I want to happen to my blog/community after I die.

I have to confess that until today I hadn't thought that far ahead. At the moment, I'm still struggling with where will I live and how will I get by while I'm alive.

So now, getting past my immediate personal concerns, I'm stopping to think about what my legacy will be.

The Sometimes, it is Lupus blog, Facebook page and Google+ probably won't continue. After all, there's lots of blogs and FB pages out there that deal with lupus, and new ones coming on all the time. So I suspect these will not be missed when I'm no longer here.

What I would like to continue in some form, if someone else, or some group would eventually take responsibility for it, would be the Lupus Business Directory. It's only been in operation a year and still just a single page on this site, but I hope, that one day it will grow into something bigger. I hope that it really does eventually make a difference in the lives of people with lupus and other chronic illnesses - help with promoting our small and micro businesses, and help us to make our own income and not be totally dependent on social security.

I think if I could leave that behind, as something that really does work to make a difference, then that would be a worthwhile legacy.
