Hello lovely friends!
When I first began blogging, I was thrilled to have this online space, write about topics I loved, and to connect with you! I had big dreams of not only having this blog as a creative outlet, but also to earn money through advertising so the blog would pay for itself (as it adds up to pay for and renew the domain name, hosting, themes, and etc.). But as these two years have gone by, I have realized that monetizing the blog is not the direction I would like to go right now. I have found myself getting so stressed trying to earn money that blogging wasn’t fun for me anymore. Which was super bad, cause I LOVE you guys and this little spot on the web!
SO, to fix this, I have decided to move the blog over to a free platform which will enable me to focus more on simply writing and not on trying to force the blog to do something its not ready to do yet.
I am planning to let this Backwoods Beauty blog stay up until the web hosting needs to be renewed (probably in January 2018). But all the posts from this site are being transferred over to the new blog, so don’t worry about losing a post.
The new site is WONDERFUL! I absolutely love it! And I think you’ll love it too! I feel that the new name and “re-branding” is more ‘me’ and I am so excited to have the freedom to relax and continue to pursue this passion of mine!
The new blog is called Slowly Wandering North!
Check it out and let me know what you think!
If you would like to subscribe to Slowly Wandering North, there is an email signup on the side of the home page (of the new site).
A HUGE thank you to all of you who have stuck with me and given me so much support and encouragement through this blogging journey! You are such a blessing to me!
