Goodbye (for now)

Sorry I’ve been a bit awol these past few weeks. I’ve actually been thinking about blogging a lot recently, and although I love blogging and writing, I don’t think this website truly reflects who I am anymore.

I’ve been so grateful for the opportunities this website has given me, but I’ve come to a point in my life where I’m really thinking about what I want to achieve and who I want to become, and I’m not sure this blog really fits in with that vision any more.

When I first started my job in Marketing 3 years ago, I was introduced to this world of blogging and vlogging, and it was something I’d never really experienced before (apart from watching vlogger videos at home etc). I wanted in on the action, and I honestly feel so happy knowing that I got to that level of being gifted items (I even got my lips done through this blog - MAD) reviewing products and being offered the opportunity to see the opening of new stores and restaurants. I’ve actually achieved what I set out to do, and I’m so happy about that!

When I first started this blog, I launched myself into design, branding, content and more. But as I’ve aged and grown up with it, the more I’ve become disinterested in the content I write (hence why I’ve changed my niche about a thousand times haha). Not only this, but I’ve become more of a person who doesn’t want everything about their life online. There’s a lot of information about me on this site, and although it’s helped people with their mental health and eating issues, it worries me. I’m constantly evolving and changing as a person, and even my views change more than the seasons. I don’t want a website I can use as a journal anymore, I want a place where I can explore something I love and mould it into something more.

I’ll never forget the kindness shown to me by people who wanted me to succeed either. Without people like my boyfriend, family and friends this website would have been left in a ditch a long time ago. I think this is why it’s a good time to walk away. I’m in a good place, and I’m actually ready to move onwards and upwards.

So, I’d like to introduce you all to my new website, Words To Love By. This site has been in the making for about 6 months, and I’m finally ready to get to work on there and develop it into something beautiful.

In my spare time, I love to read. I’ll read pretty much anything, from Young Adult Fiction to True Crime Thrillers. I’ve struggled with my mental health for a number of years, and I find that reading gives me that mental space to relax and stop overthinking. I also have my degree in English and Film, so why shouldn’t I put it to use? I want to review books, start a podcast, make videos and even post online courses for people looking to enhance their writing for free. I want to work with other authors, get a book published and I honestly think this new website will help me to do that.

So I guess it’s goodbye for now. I’ll hopefully see you all over on my new website! I hope 2019 brings you closer to your goals and that you find happiness.
