I discovered blogging while planning my wedding. It was the internet just before the full-force arrival of Pinterest, and I spent hours Googling and wandering the digital streets looking for ideas. I found a dozen or so blogs about weddings, and I dove into their archives with wild abandon. From there I discovered personal blogs popping up all across the Web, and it wasn’t long before I decided I wanted to join those fledgling writers.
Fast-forward six years (wow, really, six years?!), and we have this little corner of digital space. By now, I have been blogging for almost as long as the life of my marriage (give or take a month or two) and for the entirety of Little Rabbit’s life.
Friends, I feel internet-old.
A lot has changed in six years, and I’ve been feeling for a while like I don’t fit here anymore. I love this space, and it’s been a lot of fun growing and making it–but it’s not quite right for me now. That hustle isn’t my thing. I’ve been longing to pull back and rethink and move my focus. So it’s time for something different.
I’m moving myself back to a wee thing of a blog, and this space will be gone soon. Actually, it’ll be gone on Thursday (1/19). I know, I know, nothing like short notice. Sorry. I feel like I owe you all the explanations, but I don’t really have them (and I’m guessing you feel differently about that, anyway). It just isn’t working for me like this, and I feel like a blank slate is the only thing that will. So that’s what I’m doing.
I’m not actually leaving the internet, though. I’m still going to blog over here (http://wildlittleflowers.blogspot.com/), but differently. That space is going to be a little slower and a little more personal than Hello Neverland has been–think family, our life, and the way we do things. If that’s your jam, then I’ll certainly be seeing you around. And you can always find me on Instagram. In fact, I hope you will. (NOTE: If you’re a Hello Neverland follower on Bloglovin, you don’t have to do anything. I’ve moved all my followers over to the new blog, so you can just keep on keepin’ on!)
Thanks for everything, loves. I’ll be seeing you.
