A very big announcement.

(for those of you who can't access my sisters' blog, and are wondering why, she has a new URL: http://elizabethradewahn.blogspot.com/)
I'm sure you've been waiting for something this whole time, either for me to quit, or take a long break, and this is it.
I've realized that what I've been doing isn't really what I want to be doing.
This blog has given me so much.
And I'm very thankful for that.
But it's not working anymore. 
I don't feel the need or want to blog, and I feel like my blog is just not 'right'.
I don't feel what I used to for my blog.
It’s getting harder and harder to find the fun I had in blogging before.
To tell you the truth, I’m not enjoying any of it. I see others’ blogs, and how it seems they are so confident in themselves, in who they are, and in who they want to be.
And I’m not like that.
It’s not that I want to copy them, it’s that I want to find who I am.

I’ve thought this over long. Long and hard…
And these two words will sum everything up.
I'm restarting. 
I'm staying on this blog, but I'll be getting a new URL, i'll be renaming, changing what I do, everything.
A fresh start.
On March 5th this blog will be closed to everyone.
Until I unveil the new blog once it's finished (don't worry, I'll make a post stating the new blog. none of my previous posts will be erased, i'm leaving them there for memories' sake.)
You won't have to re-follow, blogger will save all my followers, and you'll receive the post saying that i've returned right in your blogger (as long as you continue to follow).
During this time, I will be rethinking everything. What I do, why I do it, and what I want to do/be.
Don't worry, what's coming is only going to be better.

  1. Rachel, I think you just said everything that I have to say. You said it perfectly.
    I'm very relieved you are not leaving, and I can't wait to see the new blog :)

  2. I often feel this way. People seem confident, perfect with great editing and photos and thought and I'm here - the opposite of perfect - trying to find my stride. I'm very glad you're not leaving and am excited to see how this blog goes!

  4. I feel the same way that you do, sometimes. I don't feel like my blog is "right," either, and I'm trying to figure out how to make it "right," too. I can't wait to see your new blog!!
