I’ve been blogging for so many years that this is difficult for me to even wrap my head around.
I think it’s time that I back away from blogging.
It’s just not a joy for me anymore.
Blogging about my recovery from anorexia was a huge tool in my primary recovery back in high school.
One I felt recovered enough, I decided to start a healthy living blog. Why? I don’t know. I fell in love with blogging and I was “fame hungry”, so to speak. I wanted tons of comments on my blogs, and to be able to do reviews, and to have blog friends.
My blog grew and grew and grew up to where it is now.
With fame comes new challenges. I started to get negative comments on my blog, and I couldn’t stop them. They didn’t hurt, per se, but they were annoying and they started to suck the fun out of blogging.
I can’t put up a blog post now without worrying what people will think. I phrase things in ways to avoid any misinterpretation. I’ve stopped blogging for me, as an outlet, and started blogging for others.
It’s not that I don’t have tough skin. It’s that I’m a people pleaser, and I feel like I’ve stretched myself too thin. My blog is becoming less about me and more about giving others what they want to hear. It’s a chore now, and I realized that I shouldn’t continue to do something I don’t enjoy doing.
It’s time I back away from blogging. I’ll still be around, commenting and interacting with all of you <3 I cherish those friendships I’ve formed and that was really my only motivation to keep blogging at this point. However, I can still comment and keep in touch!
Thank you for being such loyal and supportive readers and I hope you understand this difficult decision.
Best of luck to all of you in all your future adventures <3
