Happy New Year!
So, as I have posted before, I was thinking about stopping with blogging. Today is the unofficial one year anniversary of “Fearlessly Loud” and I’m so happy that I’ve stuck to blogging consistently for one year. While deciding to stay on WordPress has make me happy, I still feel like I need to do something in order to be completely honest to myself. There are going to be some changes, and for the better, since this blog has always been about honesty and me sharing real things with you.
Last year, starting my own blog was on my “goals-list”. I did that and honestly, I am so happy I did. I have met amazing people and read amazing posts. I have gotten to know myself better and I have grown in so many ways. I am not the person I used to be a year ago. Not in a bad way, though. I haven’t changed fundamentally, but my life is so different from what it used to be. Keeping this blog as it is would therefore be a lie. As we all have changed, so should the blog.
So no, I won’t be blogging as consistently as before. No, I won’t be active in the blogging community. Not because I don’t want to, but simply because I have so many things to do and worry about. I have done this, blogging, for a year now and that was exactly what I wanted and needed to do. As hard as it is to let something this wonderful go, I should. From now on, I’ll be a ghost on WordPress.
I won’t just disappear after this. You may see a random post here and there from me. Nevertheless, I will not be a blogger anymore, because I can’t shut this chapter while still writing like I used to. Wow, I sound so dramatic. Seriously, this is not a bad thing. You can still contact me whenever you want and I won’t delete my blog so it’ll still be out there in this world wide web of ours (I sound so old while saying that).
So my dear, lovely friends. This is a goodbye. Not a final one, but an official one (if that makes sense). I love you all and please never forget just how much you have lightened up my days.
Love (forever and always),
PS: It’s so nostalgic to read my very first post on Fearlessly Loud. I’ve had great times here. Thank you 🙂
