There comes a time when one outgrows something in her life--clothes, friends, boyfriends, blogs...
After 5.5 years on this blog, I think it's high time to say goodbye to this chapter in life. Blogging has always been about the writing for me. And lately, I wasn't happy with what I was writing because I wasn't writing for myself anymore. Reading my earlier posts made me miss the times I was just a new (small) fish in the pond of blogging.
It's going to be hard to adjust to not being a fashion/lifestyle blogger, with the need to document everything. I used to think, "how could people want to keep some part of their life private? It's fun to have people recognize you and get invited to events and get freebies and shiz", but you grow up and realize that it's tiring to live up to expectations, to keep up trying to be someone you're not.
I've given this a lot of thought, debating with myself back and forth but then I decided to just jump the gun. It's a scary thought-- to have to start from scratch, especially when I've gotten a taste of a good number of followers, page views and perks. But, like every plant needs pruning to make the branches grow, so do I.
I hope you'll still support my new blog. I've worked really hard for the new content and I'm pretty excited about it. I'll still be keeping this blog to look back on though, and btw, all my social media handles are still the same. :)
I met up with Mithi yesterday and I just wanted to share something she told me that I can't get off my mind: "Dapat hindi na tayo maghiya-hiya kasi 25 na tayo" (We shouldn't be shy or scared [to try new things] because we are already 25 years old)
