  1. Hi, Yes, its important that people feel that they’re in control of the funeral process and there are many new options available so that families can create personal funerals with real meaning, something memorable and truly appropriate for the deceased person.

  2. Hi Annaliese, My advice is to start with a WordPress theme that you like the look of and that may suit the style of blog you have in mind. There’s a huge choice of standard templates and themes available in WordPress but keep looking for inspiration from successful blogs outside of WordPress as well. Don’t be afraid to ask those bloggers for their opinions on the best way to approach setting up your blog. Stay in touch and let me know what transpires? LC

    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.

    1. Hi, Check out the blog sites that you really like the look of and find out which blog software they use (usually listed at the base of each post). There’s plenty of choice out there and most are really easy to use. WordPress is just one of many to look at. Once you’ve settled on the look and style of your blog then all you have to do is get started on your favourite subject matter. LC

  7. Hi, Use point form to start with – bullet points of the subjects you’d like to cover in your writing. Than take each point and expand and develop it until you’re happy that you’ve covered it adequately. By approaching writing each thought at a time the project won’t seem so daunting. when you’ve completed expanding each point go back and condense your writing to its simplest form. I hope this helps.
