Its crazy how much I have learnt about blogging and the community that goes with it over the past year and a half that I have been working on Opshopaholic. Starting a blog is really exciting and a little bit scary! But I have really enjoyed developing this blog and its content, I appreciate all the people who I have got to know along the way. There are a few people who have been particularly supportive – you know who you are! And I just want to thank them especially.
However over the past few months the inspiration just hasn’t been there, I thought it might have been a phase. I came up with plans of cutting back on blogging to cut down the pressure – for nearly a year I was blogging at least 5 times a week, which was a huge commitment, but now I just don’t have the energy or desire to blog about fashion/style. Its still something I am hugely interested in, and I am still passionate about opshopping, just not blogging about it.
Instead I have decided to start a new blog - BEEF. This blog will focus on my design work as well as my painting and photography so it may not be to all of your tastes. I a really excited about this blog, I am looking forward to documenting my work and seeing how it progresses. I am heading to university next year to study Visual Communication and it makes sense to get my name out there as a designer. Hopefully I will be able to stick at this blog, no doubt I will have enough content as I am continuously working my art and its something I have been passionate about since a very young age. When I was six years old we did a class project, painting pictures of what we wanted to be when we grew up, I wanted to be an artist and over ten years later that hasn’t changed! Not once have I ever considered doing something else.
I really appreciate all your support, and I am not deleting this blog as I am not 100% sure I wont come back to it, but for now you can see me over at my new blog BEEF . (It’s a weird name but we have a joke in my photography class if you take a good photo it’s referred to as prime beef.)
