Hi there, it’s me. Suddenly – and very randomly – dropping a post into your Reader feed as you casually scroll by.
It’s been about, what, 2 weeks (??) since my last post on this blog. Of course, there were the late night rehearsals, fashion show, and all that, so I had kinda anticipated this disappearance of mine from the blogosphere. Again.
However, ever since the fashion show rollercoaster ended (aka 4 days ago), I’ve been thinking about me, as a blogger, and y’all, as the wonderful readers that decide to read what I’ve got to say. I know that one of my main goals for blogging this year was to get back on track and post for consistently, but for the past few months, things haven’t been going to well on that front.
From the blog title you may be getting the impression that this is a goodbye, but I’m here to say that it’s not. I do feel, however, that I’m not being the best, responsible blogger I can be, and I believe that I can do way better. Thus, this is what this post will be about – the future of Free Perspectives.
I don’t know if it was because of the fashion show and school, but I’ve been lacking inspiration on what I should post. I strongly believe in posting content that I am truly proud of; what I really want to share with you guys. I don’t want to be posting just for the sake of posting. The thing is, while I struggle with that, I disappear off the blogosphere a bit, and that’s not exactly what I want either.
So what about the future of the blog?
↬ Firstly, I’m not going to stop blogging, nor go on a 1 month+ hiatus for the foreseeable future. This is something I love doing, and I want to continue with it. I owe blogging so much, and I can’t imagine me stopping anytime soon.
↬ There are going to be some major changes made soon, aka my blog name. I have been thinking about changing it for awhile now, and I believe that it would be best for me to now, without any doubt. Free Perspectives will always be a name close to my heart, but I think it no longer shows what I want to represent through this blog and my posts. Currently I don’t have a set name for sure yet (right now debating over two final choices), but I definitely have some ideas! I’ll be sure to mention when I’m going to transition over to my new url in a post when I decide to and have more time :))
↬ I’m planning to stick with my niche(s), but as another source of feedback, I want to know what y’all think! This is just a smol poll* for me to see what you guys think. As always, it’s 100% anonymous, and the form doesn’t collect any of your email addresses or personal information 🙂 It would mean so much if you could take a minute to fill this out. Thank you in advance <33
*me being proud of the rhyme
I’ve been blogging for more than 2 years now, and I’ve got to say, wow this has been one special journey. However, I think that it’s okay to close that chapter of my blog, and begin with a fresh start. I want to make my blog represent what I want to share, and who I am overall as much as possible, so I think that this will be a good step to take next. Don’t worry – I won’t be deleting the blog posts I already have up on my blog :))
Anyways, to give a brief timeline, so far I’m estimating that I’ll be redesigning and changing my blog name (with the url) around the end of June or the start of July, as I will be on summer break then. I’m still not sure if I should change it, or have a complete new beginning and start a new blog, whilst keeping the url I already have. I’m really excited as to where this new chapter of my blog will take us <33 Thank you all again, for your patience and love. It truly means so much to me.
