It's been about a month since I've last posted, and I felt like you guys deserved to know what's going on. Like I mentioned, I no longer feel like beauty blogging is for me. After not looking at my blog or anyone elses in nearly a month, and then coming back, I found some posts looking so entirely superficial and ridiculous. There are always going to be beauty blogs I adore, (specifically Jess's, Coco's, and Mandy's), but some of the other posts all felt so fake and like the bloggers were trying to be someone they aren't. That's simply my opinion. Maybe my old posts feel that way too. I just know that I no longer fit the 'mold' that a beauty blogger needs to fit. I don't find myself buying any new beauty products, I rarely spend over 10 minutes on my makeup, and I feel like blogging is just a burden now. This blog has only gone downhill over time. I find it funny how I kept the same amount of followers for weeks when I was trying so hard to please all of you. Then, I went on hiatus and gained 5 new followers when I was never even posting. With school, friends, work, and everything else life throws at us - blogging doesn't fit into my schedule well anyway. But the main reason for me leaving is simply the fact that blogging is no longer something I can enjoy. It makes me feel way too pressured to have to please so many of you with my posts. "It's your blog, post what you want", is the number one over-used line in blogging world, while it's true - I'm not the one reading the material. I want to please YOU. And honestly, it's discouraging when I don't. It makes me feel awful when I put so much work into a post, then get 2 comments. Of course I'm grateful, but then I see other bloggers with 50 comments on a short post that probably took them only a few minutes. In my life right now, I am the happiest I have been in a very long time. My small family, and best friends Austin and Tiffany have really helped me lately. I want to focus on my life and being happy.
Thank you for all you guys have gone for me in the past two and a half years. Your comments mean the world to me, and I'm so happy I've been able to make so many amazing friends. If you ever want to get in touch with me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll always reply and i'd love to talk. Blogging has been so fun for me, and I'll never forget the people, memories, and amazing things that have happened because of it. You all have made my life brighter on even the darkest days. You will never be forgotten or go unnoticed. I love you all, and I want to hear from ALL of you! Do not ever be shy to email me, I want to stay in touch :) Thank you for all you've done, and who knows? Maybe i'll be back sometime :) I wouldn't unfollow if I were you, because I could make a reappearance one day! I love you all, stay happy and beautiful.
