A goodbye

Sunday, 5 April 2015

It feels very strange to type this. A goodbye from my blog. This website has been a big part of my life for 4,5 years, and after today it's ending. I have double feelings about stopping, but i know it's the right thing to do. As you've probably noticed i've been really busy lately, and it's hard for me to keep my blog up to date. The ones who know me well are familiar with the fact that i like to do things perfectly, or simply not at all. Which means blogging didn't make me happy lately. It felt more like an obligation than fun, which is not the purpose of course.

The reason why i started blogging in the first place was to share my passion about photography, fashion and art. The people in my hometown didn't understand my 'weird' clothes, so i wanted to find some people who did like it and supported it. And it did me so much good! All the reactions i got, YOU, made me really really happy, and gave me way more confidence! To be honest i don't think i would do my fashion design BA interview next week if my blog wouldn't have existed. If you wouldn't have been there. I never regretted starting my blog, and am truly grateful for all the amazing opportunities i got because of it, and all the wonderful people i've met. But i feel like it has to come to an end now. A happy one!

I honestly wish you all the best, and joy with blogging. Never forget to have fun! It's the most important thing there is. BIG KISS TO YOU ALL!

Oh nee, you will be missed. Ik vind het heel jammer!! Ik wil je alle succes wensen natuurlijk. Ik ga je stiekem nog een beetje in de gaten houden op Facebook. And I hope dat we als het lekker weer is weer gezellig sigaretjes en wijntjes kunnen doen, lijkt mij heel gezellig!!

Heel begrijpelijk. Als je er zelf niet meer zoveel plezier uit haalt, is het klaar. Altijd genoten van je blog in ieder geval :)

Oh wauw dit had ik echt niet verwacht! Maar ik snap je keuze wel, als je werk/schoolleven er niet meer mee te combineren is, is het inderdaad beter het stop te zetten. En als het plezier weg is, is er inderdaad helemaal niks meer aan. Ik heb alleszins genoten van je blog! Hopelijk zie ik je wel nog verschijnen op Instagram! :) Veel plezier en succes met alles meid!

XO Imke

Ik vind het nog steeds allejezus jammer, maarja, ze zeggen wel eens dat je moet stoppen op je hoogtepunt. Bovendien maak je nu weer plaats voor nieuwe, mooie en inspirerende dingen. Liefde.

Laura said...

sad to hear that this is a goodbye, but i completely understand! and everything must end at some point:-) i've been feeling a bit like this too, as i'm finding it hard to do both blogging and uni at the minute. but i'm just waiting for a time when i'll have more time to blog, ha. all the best, and good luck with your interview and everything else in the future, lovely! xx

Aah ik lees dit nu pas! Vroeg me al af waar je berichtjes bleven.. jammer zeg :( Maar als het het beste is dan is dat zo. Het is belangrijk dat je er plezier in blijft hebben en als dat niet zo is dan houdt het op. Jammer!! Hoop toch nog eens wat van je te horen :)
