I’m going to start this post with something ever so cliché: someone said that the only constant in this world is change! And that’s true in every life situation. There’s nothing in this world that doesn’t change! So roll those eyes when your so called friends tell you to “not change.” Haha, /JK only but really, change isn’t specific. It can be for the better or for the worst! But change is necessary, and I understand the apprehension that involves with the process! Don’t worry those things are warranted—expected but don’t be too cautious! Because unless you do it you’ll never know what it is!
So Mitchii, what’s up with you and these trying hard philosophical ideas! Nah, I’m just doing some quasi-profound segue ‘cos my topic is about changes as blogger and why it shouldn’t scare you! You know (or if you didn’t know) that my blog was a book blog before (more like book review blog actually) but when my interest changed so did my content. And I lost followers (I understand that they signed up for the bookish content not for my new interest). Admittedly it’s kinda sad, but not really sad that people left…because after weighing everything in I realized I’ll be sadder to hold onto something I don’t like anymore. I want to be honest of what I want to share. It’s so hard to keep appearances. And I’m not the type of person who does that, so I let go! I changed! And I’m happy!
If your blog is more personal outlet like mine rather than one that is catered to specific audience, it so easy to reinvent your blog! There’s literally no one will hold you! That’s why it was a super easy transition for me! I was thinking about changing direction, I was craving for new identity—one that will match up with my new interest! And the thoughts and idea that were playing in my head were bursting! The feeling was great! There was joy in the process, and I got excited—again! which before starting to diminish because it felt like I was losing my place. I had no idea what to do! So in retrospect I’m glad that I pushed through the changes that I was desperately yearning for!
Maybe I’ll change again, who knows? That’s the beauty of life, no? You just don’t know what’s up ahead. It can be worrying, but it’s kinda exciting! Life’s giving us variety! And just like that, I want to apply to my blog. So don’t be surprised if I change again, K? That’s me! I’m fickle-minded! Ahahaha!!!
How about you? Have you ever thought of changing your blog? If you already have what made you decide? Do you think it was the right decision? Tell me about it!~
