I’m listening to Bon Jovi and writing a blog post. Not much seems to have changed, but the truth is that something has. You know it. I know it. I know that you know it. Darling, we need to talk.
I am a firm believer of the saying that a blogger and her blog should be like husband and wife. A relationship where one invests time and effort, but above all: a lot of love. Unfortunately, the love is gone. I still do the little blog-chores we all know, but much like in a love affair gone cold I do them simply because they are part of my routine. My blog and I live together, but apart. Today we are more like blogger and sister, than the passionate lovers we used to be.
I had so many good intentions, so many fresh ideas to ignite the fire again. But the distance I felt between me and my blog has only gotten bigger. I write it still, but it doesn’t feel like it’s me who’s typing the words. We miss a connection. Toto learned us to hold the line, because love isn’t always on time. But how long should I hold it? It’s been a very long and good journey, but I feel like we’ve reached our destination.
I have a relationship with a style blog. A relationship that used to be so passionate, that this blog was all I could think about. I grew older, and the blogging world changed. And now, now we just don’t match anymore. Over the last couple of months I’ve tried to make a style blog work for me, but I don’t feel it anymore. It’s a “it’s not you, it’s me” kind of situation. One that I found no way out of and therefor my style blog and I are breaking-up. Breaking-up is never easy. Break-ups are hard, they don’t always go smoothly, they tend to have consequences you never saw coming. But no pain, no gain. Holding the line when I already know the love will not flare up again is nothing but a waste of my time.
And much like with relationships between people, this break-up doesn’t mean I can’t fall in love again. I might have outgrown outfit-blogging, I still love blogging in itself. I love to write things and I love being able to talk to you all through this platform, I just want to change my message. It’s going to take me a while to write a new story, but you can trust on the fact that I will be back one day.
For now, I’m going to listen to more eighties music and write a paper on Belgium’s migration history. Darling, something has changed, but not everything.
Talk to you later
