It’s with a heavy heart that I say this, but the time has come.
It’s time to put my little blog baby to rest.
I’ve learned so much over the past five years and being able to share the things I’ve learned has given me great joy. I originally started this blog so that I would have a creative outlet in addition to my normal workday. I was able to combine two things I loved: writing and researching “how to make it” in the corporate world. This blog then rolled into a “lifestyle” blog where I posted inspirational quotes, recipes, fashion findings, and fitness buzz. This was fun for awhile, but I didn’t feel truly connected to my blog anymore . . . it was almost a means to end.
As I mentioned in my very first post, I’ve always loved to write. Writing is my thing. It’s my passion, it makes me happy, and it gives me “all the feels”. Once I finally landed a stable career and finished my Master’s degree, I decided it was time to put my passion at the top of my priority list.
So, I wrote my first novel.
The first draft was complete and total crap. Peeeeeyew, it stunk soooo bad.
But then I actually took the time to revamp it and turn it into something I loved – a young adult science fiction that, lo and behold, ended up turning into a series.
The point is, I didn’t give up on my daydream . . . it was just on the backburner until I got my life in order. I’m still working a full-time job in the chemical industry, but you better believe that the minute I get home from work, I sit down and write, write, write. My passion has finally flourished into everything I always hoped it would be.
I hate to say good-bye to this blog, but I now know where my focus needs to be. I truly appreciate all of my readers and your incredible support on this journey. I really hope you’ve gained something from my entries, however big or small.
If you want to keep in touch, or you’re interested in how often I’m pulling my hair out as a writer, I would be delighted if you’d check out my website here. My super nerdy self has also taken up YouTubing, or BookTubing, where I post vlogs and writing advice. You can watch my videos here, and, if you’re crazy enough to like them, you can even subscribe so you don’t miss out on the super exciting things I have to say.
Again, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your readership, support, and love. It truly means the world to me.
