After many, many, many years of blogging, I’m feeling like it’s time to hang up my keyboard.
I have no idea if this will come to a shock to some, or if this isn’t surprising at all, but it’s something that’s briefly crossed my mind and over the past 10 days has felt so unbelievably strong, that ignoring this feels like I’m not being true to me.
As I’ve sat here trying to figure out the best way to explain this, the best analogy I can come up with, is the ending of a relationship. One, where no partner has done anything wrong; you’ve merely grown apart. You’ve each tried because you wanted it to work, but no matter what, you can’t find that spark. Except…..no one wants a relationship to end, and so, you wait. Until one day, you both look at one another and know that you can’t deny it any longer – it really is time to move on.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t sad; I really and truly am. Blogging has brought the absolutely most wonderful people into my life. I think 95% of my friends I’ve met through social media in one way or another. I’m so thankful for each and every opportunity blogging has brought into my life. I never could have imagined the opportunities just because of some space on the internet.
And so, with that, I thank each person who has read, commented, and reached out. I’m so thankful for every business and company I’ve had the luck to work with.
Housekeeping: my hosting expires in November, so until then (ish) this site will be live. After that? I’m not sure. I know I’ll back everything up, but I’m not sure if I’ll put it all on free WordPress, or just save it for myself.
I’ll still be sharing cat videos and random things over on Instagram, but have also made the conscious effort to step back from the perfectly curated account.
Again – thank you.
