I think it’s only fair that I introduce myself again …
My name is Melis, and four years (and one day ago) I started a blog called ‘Infinite Daydreamer,’ which then became ‘Coffee Shop Dreams.’ Since seventeen year old me decided to take a leap of faith, I have written over two hundred posts, gotten the chance to communicate with so many amazing people, and learnt more about the type of writer I want to be. So, although this is goodbye on this platform, I hope you will continue to follow my journey to publication on my new blogging site, Writing Her Way.’
In the beginning, I didn’t really know what type of blog I wanted to create. I made my topics broad and only blogged when I felt inspired to do so. Then, in many ways, I started to lose the platform that I had initially created. My blog posts became too personal, and I almost forgot that people were reading everything that I put out there. So, I stopped blogging. I didn’t want to continue sharing posts on a platform I was no longer proud of, and I was too scared to start again and lose the following I had gained through hard work. However, I could no longer ignore the fact that I’ve missed this little hobby. Writing can often be such a solitary task, and blogging made it less so.
Perhaps, this is goodbye for good, and if it is, I would just like to say thank you for supporting me throughout some of my most stressful years. This is the new beginning that I’ve been terrified to embark on, but I know it’s the right thing to do.
Until next time keep dreaming x
