OK, admittedly, not completely different! But things are going to change a bit around here (apart from the few tweaks to the blog theme that will be happening as I find the time). Let me explain...
It’s odd to think that I've had Whimsy Is Forever for over three years. Three whole years – where has the time gone? When I started this blog (the most recent in about a decade’s worth of blogging), I was about to turn 23. I was halfway through my master’s degree and in need of a creative outlet. Now, three years later, I’m doing research towards my doctorate, I've been living with depression, I've had my heart broken (more than once), I've done a lot of growing up and I've significantly changed my future plans.
In just about every way possible, I am no longer the same person that I was three years ago.
Over the years, this blog has changed with me, but somewhere along the line, it grew apart. I no longer felt as connected to it, I no longer loved it, and that’s one of the reasons why it was one of the first things to suffer when I was going through a rough patch. And I don’t like that. I created this blog. I've poured hours and hours into it. I want it to reflect me, I want it to be somewhere I can turn to, and not something I turn away from.
So what does that mean moving forward? Don’t worry – Whimsy Is Forever isn't going anywhere!
It’s just turning into something that reflects me again, although the new me, not the old. It’s going to be more personal, with more about what’s going on in my life, what I’m doing, what I’m enjoying. There’s going to be less of a focus on beauty and nails – as much as I love red lipstick and bright nail polish, I don’t enjoy blogging just on beauty, it’s just not me. I'm tired of trying to put myself in a box or a category, and I'm now extending that to this blog.
I hope that you, my readers and friends, will enjoy the changes happening around here and will continue to visit Whimsy Is Forever. You can expect to see a lot more happening around here now!
Love and peace,
