Happy Friday everyone! Today, I just wanted to sit down and let you know about a few things, some good and some bad. I’ve had a crazy couple of months (heck, 2018 has been a bit mental all round) so I just want to fill you in on some things you might have missed, and some things that are happening in the not too distant future.
1. 500 Followers?!
First of all, I couldn’t write this post without thanking you all for following, liking and commenting on this blog. I’m so pleased you’re all enjoying my content and that we’ve built this little community here. I love you all to the moon and back!
2. Surgery updates.
I don’t know if you guys really care about this one, so I won’t get too much into it, but the operation that derailed me in February didn’t work and had to be reversed last week (which is why you saw no post from me last Friday).
I feel like being under GA twice in the past couple of months has seriously hindered my ability to focus (I’ve only written 139 words so far and I’m already struggling to think and spell)… it’s making blogging and essay writing fun and means everything is taking me 10x longer than normal.
3. I’m taking a break…
Yeah, sorry guys! I have taken some time off in the past (I took the month of May off last year, you may recall) but this year I’m thinking of a slightly longer break.
Essentially, at the moment, I’m planning to come back in the first week of July with some brand new content (and possibly a brand new design, I’m getting a bit sick of my blog’s theme and I’d love to switch it up).
Think of this as my offseason, I’m still going to be writing posts and coming up with ideas, I just won’t be posting them until July. The reasons for this break are threefold:
Firstly, I really hate when I upload something that I’m not 100% happy with, and lately I’ve been feeling like my quality has been dropping rapidly.
Secondly, I feel like my posts are a real mismatch at the moment, so I really want to streamline what I write about and come up with a few different series ideas and titles – that way you guys will know exactly what you’re getting from me (it would really help me out if you could let me know what your favourite posts from me are in the comments).
Thirdly, I want to get back into connecting with you all! I’ve been rubbish at responding to comments and reading other people’s post’s of late (if you have left me a comment, I promise I have read it and formed a response in my head, but I just don’t have the mental capacity to type them all out at the moment!).
When I come back in July I fully intend on getting back to what I love about blogging, and that’s talking to all of you guys! I’m sorry if you’re disappointed, but I promise there’s good news coming up!
4. My Instagram is coming back!
If you still follow me on Instagram you can consider me impressed! I haven’t posted on there since the beginning of January.
However, I’ve had a bit of a brainstorm and I’ve decided I really want to get back into it.
So, the plan is:
- I’m going to take this last week and a bit of April completely off
- On May 1st I’ll come back on Instagram
- On July 1st I’ll be back on here!
Essentially, my Instagram is going to have snapshots of what I usually put on here (my bullet journal posts will go up there, mini book reviews, some minimalism/lifestyle posts etc). If you’re not following me already and you’d like to be a part of Miss Abigail’s new makeover, make sure to follow @missabigailanderson
I can’t think of anything else I really need to tell you today, and I know you have better things to do than listen to me ramble on so (for now) I’ll say goodbye, and I’ll see up over on Instagram in a week, or back here in July… happy blogging in the meantime!
