I will be closing down this site and opening minimalistgal.com.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the direction in which I want to take this blog.
When I first started this blog a few months ago, it didn’t really have a clear purpose or overall goal. I just wanted to share my personal style and bits of my life. And then something happened. Something unintended. And especially something that I didn’t like.
Instead of this space being a creative outlet, it became more of a shopping blog. It felt like I was buying clothing more for showcasing it on the blog rather than purchasing them to build a great wardrobe.
And that’s NOT a minimalist mindset and lifestyle at all.
I didn’t feel good about myself and this blog and I really started questioning the purpose and identify of this space.
So what does this all mean? What will minimalist gal be about?
It’s going to have a focus and not just be vague or all over the place.
At it’s core, it will be a journey about creating and maintaining a minimalist lifestyle, with an emphasis on building a minimalist wardrobe.
It’s also going to be more honest. I’m going to focus on and only write about meaningful things and posts that I can be proud of.
What I ultimately want from this new blog is to create something useful and to develop a writing voice. I definitely feel fresh and motivated going forward after defining my niche and objectives.
And that’s pretty much it.
I will leave this site on for an extra month before deleting it.
It will be bittersweet to say goodbye to this space as I have met many great people here. But another chapter has begun and I hope you’ll follow along for my next journey.
Head over to MinimalistGal.
