End Of An Era …..

  • Pictorial highlights from some of my many blogging adventures with Come Step Back In Time. (More images at end of article).

I published my first article on Come Step Back In Time in July 2011 and after 5 incredible years this post will, sadly, be my last. I have thoroughly enjoyed every second of writing this blog but the time has now come to embark on exciting new  challenges. I will always be very proud of Come Step Back In Time and this blog will remain live for as long as the WordPress platform continues to exist.

This blog contains 185 articles, most of which are long read. Final word count stands at 280k, equivalent to 3 full-length novels or 3 PhDs. Phew! No wonder I have bags under my eyes.  At the end of this post, I have curated some of my favourite articles.

Come Step Back In Time will always have a very special place in my heart. It has brought me great creative joy, new friendships as well as many media opportunities, on television, radio, podcasts and in print, including BBC, ITV and Channel 4, to name but a few. 

Thank-you to each and every one of you that have read Come Step Back In Time, taken the time to comment, e-mail me, follow my blog(s) and offer me fabulous opportunities. I will always be extremely grateful for your support.

    1. Aww, thank-you Kevin;) I like that very much. I had to focus my research interests. There will be lots of retro food and plenty of weird and wonderful tales from Britain in the 20th Century. Plus new writing adventures outside the blog. More to come on that in due course. Thanks for all your, continued support. Means a lot. Let’s hope 2017 is the year we do a collab:) Emxx


  1. Very sad to hear that ‘Come step back in time’ is ending.I have really enjoyed reading your blog.But,I am so glad you are going to continue with 20th Century Crush.I look forward to reading that!


    1. Thanks so much for all of your support and comments. I does mean a lot to get feedback, honestly it does. There will be lots of interesting content over on the new blog. Social history and local stories will all feature on there but it smaller, bitesize chunks rather than long reads. But Come Step Back In Time will remain live for the foreseeable future. Best wishes Emxx
