Out With The Old. In With The New.

Sunday, January 1, 2012

Hey Everybody! Happy New Year To You! This is Kim (formerly SassyUptownChic blog).

I almost stopped blogging. It was stressing me out and I wasn't having FUN with it anymore. I think I got involved in too many things. So I decided to make some changes. I want to stick with topics that I enjoy talking about (and not feel obligated to do so). I will be writing shorter posts. I'll be doing fewer posts. This blog will also encompass more than just fashion. I won't always be able to respond to every blog post (and I don't expect you to respond to all of mine). I just want to post for fun.

Ok following you on twitter and bloglovin but GFC is not going through. Please dont stop blogging. I enjoyed your blog. But I totally understand the blog stressing you. I used to wander how you did so many post and keep up. Used to really admire all the work you put into it. When I don't post atleast one post I used to get upset too and then one day I thought this is not a competition this is something I do for fun. So why the hell am I getting stressed? Will keep visiting you. And don't get stressed too much.
Take care and have good New Year.

Hiya dollface!! Sorry, it took me a bit to figure out what was going on..I've been on a break..I needed it because like you I was getting stressed, haha. Wasn't fun anymore and felt like just stopping. But, I am so glad you are still here, I would have gone even more crazy, haha!! And this is how it should be, fun and enjoyable!! A place to escape from the day's stresses, there are enough of them out there. I love this new page, it's sweet and precious just like you and I know you will enjoy this one and have fun!!! Will fix your link on my page and everything else!!! I would have been mad if you left, haha!! ((BIG HUGS))

Happy New Year! Congratz on the move! Blogging shouldn't feel obligatory at all and should most certainly be fun. Look forward to the new posts :D

Hi Sweetie - we have missed you and am glad that you have decided not to stop blogging altogether. Just do what you like, when you have time, we just want to see your pretty face now and then, promise? Love you and hope you had a wonderful New Year!

You almost gave me a heart attack with that email, Kim. I totally understood what you meant here because I almost did the exact same thing in December. I took a break, stepped back, thought through everything and redefined what direction I want my little blog to go. I came back with a clearer mind. Most of the time I think it is "US" that put a pressure and stress on ourselves and have too many expectations. Now I couldnt care less how many followers I will have/lose, how many total pageviews at the end of the day and how many blogs I have to comment. Glad you are back girl.

Happy 2012, I hope yours is full of awesomeness!

I am so glad you didn't stop blogging all together! Just do what you can! Blogging should be fun and when it stops being fun, we are taking it too seriously and not appreciating it for what it is. You have a lot of supporters :) I love the new look! -Dreama

Nadin said...

I feel you Kim. I thought so many times I wanted to stop blogging but I'm glad I didn't and I don't want you to either! I love your posts. :)

Chrisology said...

I understand the feeling of stressing out over blogging. I only have a few followers compared to you but i'm started trying to do multiple styles of posts to try and reach other people but I'm like you with just sticking to what I want to and enjoy blogging about. Much success!

Hi Kim!!!

**Hugs** HAPPY NEW YEAR! First of all, your new blog is SO ADORABLE!!! Secondly, I completely understand what you are talking about! It is so much pressure to comment on everyone's blog. Blogging is supposed to be fun! Thanks for always being you. Although we have never met, I know you are such a wonderful person. Thanks for all your support and loving words! xo, sam

Jen @ redsolesandredwine said...

Kim - Happy New Year! You've done so much, you should transfer your old blog to this one so your readers will know.

Your posts are always so detailed and I can tell a lot of work. I'm glad that you decided to keep blogging and to stick to what you love. That's all that matters. I have days like that too and with the pregnancy, I think about not doing it that much too, but my jewelry business kind of needs me to keep going :)

I'll definitely keep track of you here. Hope you had a fantastic holiday and new year.
xoxo
Jen

kori said...

Very cute blog. :) Looking forward to more posts. Happy New Year indeed! :)

Silvertigo said...

Thank goodness you will stay with blogging! And it is quality over quantity, as they say, so fewer posts is totally fine ;) (plus, it leaves me a better chance to focus on your posts as I follow sooo many blogs already ;) I'll be here keeping my thumbs up for you, and let's keep in touch when we have time! ♥ xoxo

Good on you Kim for taking this step! It must have been hard to give up your previous blog. But blogging should definitely NOT stress you out! Do things at your own pace and it's ok to take breaks from time to time. We will all still be here for you! :)

Cara said...

Kim! I'm so glad you've decided to keep on blogging. I totally understand the sentiment though, I got so stressed with mine last month that I just stopped last week and recharged. Do it because its fun, it shouldn't be an obligation. Glad to see you sticking around though, I love your blog and all the cool things you share here!
