hi. it’s been a while

Well, well, well – look who’s writing a blog post.

I woke up this morning with a sudden motivation to write something on here, the first time in a while, so here we are.

I won’t lie to you, it feels weird to be typing up something that isn’t an essay, but I’ll push through it. This is much more fun, anyway.

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? It wasn’t intentional…life just got in the way, and before I knew it – seven months past by – oops.

The seven months weren’t all bad – the break allowed me to think about what I want to do with this blog moving forward.

I really didn’t know what to do with this blog. I felt this sense of inner conflict – I didn’t necessarily want to blog consistently anymore like I used to, but I also didn’t want to delete everything altogether and throw way the past 2-3 years…you feel my struggle?

So. This is what’s happening:

Early next year, when my blog plan is up for renewal, I’ll be changing back to a free plan, complete with a new name – floralsandthoughts. If you’re wondering why that name – I like flowers, and I have a lot of thoughts…voila, the name was conceived (plus, I couldn’t think of anything else, so there you go).

Most of my existing posts will remain, apart from the ones that made me cringe and want to crawl into a hole from pure embarrassment – they’re deleted.  What’s more, I’ll update the blog with what I want and when I want.  This is an outlet and a hobby for me, so no more schedules, plans or niches. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with all of that, but it’s just not for me anymore.

So, I’m being a ‘bad’ blogger and rejecting it all to do what makes me happy. What a rebel, right?

So this is goodbye…in a sense. If for some strange reason you still want to follow me, you can do so on twitter, where you’ll be greeted with tweets about reality tv and cat videos…don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Until next time…whenever that is.

  1. I think it is awesome that you have chosen to do what you love instead of what a typical blogger “should” for growth! I can’t wait to see what you do with Florals and Thoughts!
