A Shift in Focus

I've been off for five months now, and I've blogged daily throughout my entire journey thus far. As I was preparing to leave my full-time job, I decided to blog every day for a few reasons: to create daily content, to practice my writing, to keep my mind active, to foster an environment for creativity, and to experiment with topics in an attempt to find one that strongly resonated with me. Something that sparked joy. Something that could stand the test of time.

You see, I've always been a bit of a dabbler. I have a lot of interests, but I have a hard time committing to one or even just a few. Every time I became seemingly obsessed with a topic, I would pivot. This blog started as a fashion blog, then it became a beauty box blog, then it became a general beauty blog, then it became a catch-all blog, then I took a break from blogging. My YouTube content went though similar phases.

Perhaps I have trouble taking myself seriously enough to become an expert. Perhaps I just get bored easily.

Part of me still wants to try lots of new things, but I also want to focus on a topic that matters to me. Starting today, I'll be embarking on a few new projects that will take up a bit more time. I've thought about this blog a lot, and about my other passion projects, and I have to slow down on some things to make room for new ideas. This will be the last day of daily blogging at this URL; however, I'll be launching something very soon, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, I'll continue posting here periodically, just not every day. I'll also be continuing to post 2-3 videos per week on my YouTube channel, so I hope to see you there as well! x
