I was in 8th grade and had absolutely no idea what I was doing besides the two basic concepts that I loved reading and I wanted to talk about books. For the past year, I’ve been on an unexpectedly long hiatus from blogging. I actually considered calling it quits at one point because I couldn’t find my drive to continue to blog. I even drafted many posts throughout the previous summer.
I’m now a freshman in college and I still have no idea what I’m doing, but I do know that I love being part of this community too much to leave, and I most definitely want to continue blogging. Talking to people over the past months about books and blogging has definitely reminded me of why I started blogging in the first place. However, I have decided that it’s time to retire the name Vy’s Blog and do a complete makeover.
I’ve grown significantly as an individual over the past years, and I want my blog to reflect my growth. I’ve been tinkering with changing Vy’s Blog’s design, platform, etc, for the past few months, but I believe it’s time for a bigger change. My 19 going on 20 self is definitely approaching blogging differently than my 14 going on 15 self from years ago. The fact I’ve kept my placeholder name of Vy’s Blog already says volumes about how indecisive I felt, but I’m excited to see where this goes.
I’ve been playing around with the idea of "restarting" this blog for a while, and I want to thank my Threadsisters (Jen, Willa, and Aneeqah) for supporting me with this new change. Thank you for talking me through my late night ideas when I started a text off with "I'm ready to be a blogger again."
For the next month I’ll be brainstorming and re-branding myself (cheers to learning from past mistakes), and hopefully my blog will go live in the coming months. That being said I do want to thank everyone who’s been sticking around and keeping me company on twitter. For the time being I'll be buried deep in studying until this quarter is over, and will go back to the drawing board during spring break. As usual you can find me on Twitter!
