It has been almost 11 years since I started this blog. And, for the last few years, I have been hanging there by a thread. Always on the verge of whether to quit blogging, I have never really been able to let this go. And, finally after a long retrospection, I have decided to give my blog this space a new beginning.
I lost the real essence of this space.
In these 11 years, I have grown a lot and I have fallen into the bandwagon of writing content for the sake of niche and to stick to the blog’s name and building it as a business. Add the fact that I hate the new wordpress editor. And, somewhere down that line, I lost the real essence of this space I had created. This was my baby, a place to escape during one of the momentous phases of my life.
Do not get me wrong. I still love skin care. I love using the most expensive and luxurious products out there and if I really am in mood, I will definitely write about them. But, before that, I would like to own this space again. I want to talk about stuff which really bothers me on a personal and spiritual level.
I never really shared this space with anyone!
One of the pleasures of blogging for me was anonymity. When I was single, I never really confided about my blogging activities to anyone. And, that had freedom. One of the most challenging aspect since then has been my family’s cognizance with this blog. Somehow I am not very comfortable with sharing this space with anyone who knows me personally.
But, since I can really not help it, I shall hope that all the people reading this would keep their thoughts to themselves and if you do know me personally, please do not tell me about it. It makes me awkward and conscious than I already am. So, cheers to the new beginning!
Till then, Swathy.
