Honestly,  I don’t know how I feel about blogging anymore. ( Hi everyone!) Last time I wrote anything was in October last year. I love my blog.  I love that it’s so raw and encompasses so much of my life.  My real life with all of my ups and downs..  But I began getting a lot of backlash about my posts.  Many people around me thought it was too “personal”  and that people did not need to know that much about me.  I met the one whom I believe is the love of my life..  And he said “blogging about your feelings is a sign of weakness”  

So I thought to myself….  Really?  Seriously?? I mean this stuff isn’t something that people are not talking about anyway.  People have opinions about my life anyway,  they’ve formed their own perceptions about my past anyway.  I  choose to bare myself to others because I find it therapeutic and I feel like I need to be real about the ” fucked-upness” just so that other girls could learn. I was uncomfortable coming over here and pretending that everything was all well and good…. But apparently I  forgot about where I lived- In Ghana. Probably one of the most judgemental societies ever! Lol.   So I guess I made people uncomfortable with what I had to say.

So that being said,  I think I do have to sit back and re-evaluate what I want my blog to be about..  Sort of..  divert the attention away from me and channel it into something more productive and less about my experiences with life.  I  haven’t figured it out yet.  I don’t know how I’m going to rebrand the blog but I will..  Sometimes the voice of the people is the voice of God.  Maybe the time has come for it to be less about me and more about something more important.  I’ll let you guys know when I  figure it out.  In the meantime I  really do hope that everyone is having a great year so far!  

God’s blessings upon all of your endeavors!  Xoxo

  1. I think blogging about your feelings/emotions is a sign of strength, to be open and expose yourself is something to be proud of! So keep writing about whatever is important to you, i know i’ll continue to enjoy your words x
