GOODBYE BLOG

May 8, 2017

…At least for now.

So a couple of days ago I decided that it was time to say goodbye to the blog and I just wanted to explain why for the ones who were interested. Plus if someone asks about it I can refer them to this post.

I started TheChicItalian four years ago from a place of passion for style and because I needed a creative outlet. About two years ago I started posting more regularly and it kind of took a life of its own. In the beginning I loved it, and sometimes I still do, but there is also a huge part of me that’s just done with fashion blogging. I love coming up with ideas, I love putting together graphics but I don’t like taking outfit shots, at all. Being in front of the camera just isn’t for me.

Plus I changed. Or at least I feel like I changed as a person. It all began to feel a little off. I  have this whole life online and I want to shift that to having more of an offline life. I just feel like I’m missing out on life that’s actually out there (biggest cliche ever, a 20-something’er who’s feeling the FOMO). There is just a lot that I still want to do.

I did learn a lot through blogging: how to optimize the SEO of a website, photoshopping, upgrading my photo skills, how social media works, developing a brand and how to make a content strategy. And I don’t regret having a blog because it has formed me into the content creator that I am today.

But I’m just ready to take a new step and for now that means that I’m saying goodbye to the blog. And maybe hello when I figure things out.
