That title may imply a few things and yes, it is a little out of the blue. However, this is no story, analysis, review, or anything of that like; instead, this is an announcement on the state of the blog and a decision I have contemplated over the past few weeks: I have decided to put this blog on indefinite hiatus.
Now, I am aware that I have not been writing on here for some time and that I intended to write over the upcoming summer months, but my motivation for doing so has dwindled. It is not due to a lack of interest in writing and analyzing, as I am still very much doing that off of this blog. Instead, my interest is occupied by other outlets that are off of WordPress, and this blog does not fit into that any longer.
I should make it clear that this has nothing to do with views, comments, or followers. I love it when others interact with my work (which doesn’t happen too often on here), but my primary focus while writing always has been in my own interests rather than what others want or what’s ‘trendy’. After all, this isn’t a fashion, lifestyle, food, or travel blog; I am aware that a writing blog is a niche, especially on WordPress.
Instead of saying goodbye, I will invite you all to continue to read my work on another site that I have been writing on for the past three months, called Commaful. I won’t make this post an advertisement, but I will quickly describe what the site pertains to as it is not as popular as some other creative writing sites such as Wattpad. Commaful is a website for shorter pieces (I mostly write poems and ‘poetic prose’ on there) that are accompanied by pictures, and it has been refreshing to write on there and lots of fun! I recommend that you check it out, as that is where I will be.
Matter of fact, here is my latest piece on there! I hope it isn’t too geeky, but alas.
I should add that this is not a permanent ending for the blog, as I am rather indecisive at times. I may post again in the future, but for now, I do not plan to due to a lack of interest.
Of course, the blog’s social media accounts will still be active and they will instead be redirected for the purpose of Commaful as well as some other things, such as opinions or recommendations and the such, for example. Here are some links! (Facebook and Instagram are the most active of these accounts.)
In case this is the final post on the blog, I want to thank all of YOU for reading over the past two years! Starting this blog is a decision I am still very happy that I made, as it had helped me to maintain an outlet for writing while I still posted on here. I am still proud and fond of quite a few of the posts I wrote on here, and I will list a few of my favourites right now!
- On Aestheticism and Art
- The Meadow
- Sand and an Umbrella
- “Who is Luke Skywalker?” – A Review of ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’
- A Story Without Words – Why Music Matters in Storytelling
- Small Journeys
Just to note, I will not be deleting anything on this blog.
I also want to give even more thanks to Braydon, Kristine, Robert, Corina, Griffin, Sylvia, and Ben for writing posts and helping out with the blog when I was absent. You are all awesome and I cannot thank you enough for that!
Also, thank you to my brother for this picture! He doesn’t have any photography account on social media (or anything like that), so I can’t provide any links.
If these are the final words, then take care! Continue on writing or doing whatever you are passionate about. Despite me leaving this blog, I will continue to pursue my love of writing and I won’t be stopping anytime soon.
Of course, you know where to find my writing!
