I have made the decision to stop blogging. I no longer enjoy writing on here. I feel stupid writing the more trivial posts and struggle to write the serious ones. It’s simply not good enough to be away for so long, suck up the attention and then leave again. Even your lovely comments do not make me feel the same way anymore. But this is not a sad occasion. Deciding to blog has been one of the best choices I have ever made and I have gained so much from the experience. Blogging has made me finally proud of my writing and has given me so much confidence to continue doing so. I have loved being part of such an incredible and unique community and it makes me so sad to leave, but I believe it to be the right decision. I guess blogging has lost its sparkle for me and I am not one to peruse things that make me unhappy. I do apologize to all of you for my distance and for not providing you with new content, but this is a decision I have been contemplating for a very long time. I just feel it is time to leave this site, instead of trying to drag up a passion that has already left me and stitch the scraps together to create mediocre content that I am not proud of. I will not be deleting my blog, I see no point in that, as I am proud of everything I have created on here and I will leave this site for you and I to enjoy and to gather inspiration from.
YOU CAN STILL READ MY POETRY!!
However you can still read my poetry! I have decided to create an email system where those who ‘sign up’ (for free) can be emailed my latest poetry/short stories etc. The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org and all you need to do to join the email list is pop your email in the comments below. There is no deadline to do this, so don’t worry if you’re reading this a while after I’ve written this post. The email system will also be a way to communicate. I will be really grateful for emailed feedback or questions about my writing or yours. I will be keen to help anyone who needs a second opinion or just a chat. I have no idea if anyone will offer to be part of the email system, but I hope this is a good compromise for us both. ALSO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SEND YOUR OWN POETRY/WRITING TO ME VIA THE EMAIL I WOULD BE SO HAPPY TO RECEIVE IT!
So I guess this goodbye for now. I will always respect and value the WordPress community for all its done for me and others. You are all such AMAZING and INSPIRATIONAL people and thank you so much for putting such a huge smile on my face. You have made me a very happy Alex.
Thank you so much for reading,
