The Future Of My Blog

3:32 PM



That's what has been on my mind lately.

This space has never just been only a fashion blog for me. I like to dress up occasionally because it's fun. I focused doing that to give a boost for my mental health and to distract myself from feeling guilt over artist block/burn out.

My blog has been slowly changing this year. I don't share outfits as often because I'm happier spending too much time creating things.

 
It has also opened up my eyes to who my real (online) friends are. People I thought were my friends stopped contact with me completely because my lack of outfits and increase in other posts. I'm not just an outfit/photo lol.

I'm going to brush it off because everyone changes. We unfollow people/blogs we are no longer into at any time and it's a bit silly to take it personal. If you are the one unfollowing others and it eventually happens to you, is that right to react? 

If I were to change the direction with this blog,  I won't take it personal.



I've been blogging for over a decade. This particular space is actually 7 years old.  It was created back when I was still in high school. It's so old to me and it may feel like a short lived blog from an outside perspective. I'm getting to the point that I want to focus on myself and expanding my work into a dependable career. I'm feeling creative and I want to take full advantage of it.

I have never been one for encouraging niches because of how limiting it can become. I don't want to give my blog more labels or anything like that.

My time needs more creations, learning, evolving and adventures. The responsibilities of a blogger won't let me give my 100% towards it. I also don't spend as much time on reading many blogs, leaving comments or participating in chats.

I want to support you all in that way and I feel guilty when I don't want to stay on the computer that long.  It's been a fun time in my life to keep doing this so I'm real hesitant on saying anything "official" yet.

I LOVE the support of friends and the blogging community. I won't disappear from social media or stop following everyone's blogs/lives. I may just go on a long blog hiatus, limit my posts per month or start a new chapter on Tumblr.

I know for sure that a decision will be made by mid summer or the end. I'm still going to post regularly because there are things many things I still want to share! 

This has been lingering in my head on and off  but I'm ready now for something to change.





I thought I would throw this out first. It is upsetting to see a blogger stop especially when it comes out of nowhere.

  1. Omg you have read my mind!!! I've been in the same situation with my blog. I've been blogging for a little over 5 years and now I don't know what to do. Lol so many blogs that I love no longer exist. Which makes me sad. I'll keep reading until you stop :)
