Farewell: A long and drawn out goodbye to fashion blogging

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

I guess I should write a farewell post? I mean most of you have already realized I'm gone. I stopped blogging just after the new year. It wasn't a conscious decision, I just ran out of things to say. I thought I might rebound, but it's been over a month (maybe two, I stopped counting) since I even thought about blogging. If you were one of my avid readers you remember my meltdown last Summer. I knew then that I should stop, but it's kind of like a bad relationship and you just have to push yourself to the limit before you stop. Don't get me wrong, blogging was not harmful to my health, it just quit being therapeutic.

I didn't stop loving fashion, I'm just tired of being part of the noise. Everyone and anyone is a blogger these days, that's the beauty of the internet right? But there are so few unique voices out there. I used to think I was unique, and maybe some of my posts were the first of their kind, but you wouldn't actually be able to prove that. I got lost in a sea of trends and keeping up with the fashion Jones' if you will. My husband always joked that "My Thrifty Chic" was my starter wife, so who knows what the future holds. As of right now I am content with my life. I get to cook dinner and watch netflix marathons with my husband without checking my blog stats. I can watch the Academy Awards, and then turn them off when they get boring without worrying about a "best dressed" list. I have one less obligation in life, and that is nice.

I thank all of you who took this journey with me. This blog has changed the person I am, as cheesy as that sounds. I am a completely different person now, and  I would say a better one too. I have made a lot of friends through my blog, and somehow avoided any internet trolls. I have never received a derogatory comment on my blog, I think that is a success in itself... or maybe I was just playing it safe.. you decide. I still love fashion, so I welcome any conversations or questions you have! I still have the My Thrifty Chic Facebook page, and my Instagram. If you want to remain in contact I would love that! Thank you again for all of your support, my readers, my friends... farewell.


This is where I first dreamt up this blog... and thus it will end here as well.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

Wow, cool post. I'd like to write like this too - taking time and real hard work to make a great article... but I put things off too much and never seem to get started. Thanks though.
