You may or may not have noticed my lack of posts the past month or so. I would like to explain...
Throughout my blogging career of about a year and a half, I have had a hard time finding a peaceful place where I am content and comfortable. I went from no one reading my blog and feeling inferior; to companies/indie makers sending me polishes to review, growth in readership, and the constant feeling of being overwhelmed. Along with the awesome opportunity to review polishes, comes the pressure to provide perfect photos within a short amount of time. What was once a hobby, started to become a job. Many bloggers enjoy the challenge of the business side of blogging...but I have found that I do not. I lost my passion for both shopping for new/exciting polishes and simply painting my nails. I have had bare nails for a week now and that is so not me :(
After much thought and consideration, I have decided to take a break from blogging. I am leaving the time frame open to give myself time to re-evaluate and decide if I want to continue. I yearn to have the days back when I painted my nails every night without expecting perfection. I hope to get that passion back during my break and come back refreshed and ready to share again. If I do return, I am going to keep blogging strictly as a hobby and paint my nails what I want...when I want. No pressure.
I want to thank you for all of your support. I have realized that what I like best and appreciate the most about blogging, are the friends I have made. I have said it before and I'm going to say it again....nail/beauty bloggers are the most supportive and friendly people I have ever met <3 We are all so lucky to have each other!
I would also like to thank the companies and indie makers who have taken a chance on me and provided me with some gorgeous polishes to review. I have always been so thankful for those opportunities and I will continue to enjoy wearing your nail polish. Good luck to each of you!
Even though you will not see new blog posts from me, you will still see me around. I will continue to read and comment on your blogs. I love to support bloggers, so feel free to email me if you ever need advice or just someone to talk to. See ya later!
