I’ve been in a self-imposed blogging exile for about 2 months. My longest absence from Harlem Loves ever! Why? Well it seems after 4 and a bit years, Harlem Loves and I have grown apart… so does this mean the end?
I’ve had so many people ask me… ‘err what’s going on with Harlem Loves?’ and the only honest answer I could give was ‘I’m trying to figure that out’ and that’s what I’ve been doing for some time; mulling over what exactly I need to do with Harlem Loves.
It’s become apparent that my life has changed significantly from the days where I’d spend my lunch breaks and all hours of the night cramming in blog posts.
These days that time is more likely to be spent researching natural ingredients for Love Harlem or writing social media strategies for charities, depending on which professional hat I’m wearing that day.
But surely there should still be time in the day for a little self expression, right? I’d like to think so but to be honest finding the time isn’t always easy. So what’s the answer?
Currently Harlem Loves has just become a bit too much to maintain. So many things still catch my eye that I’d love to share but it feels like the current set up of this blog demands more than I’m able to give out of the minutiae that is my spare time.
Much as I love, love, LOVE the current look and feel, there may be a make over in the wind. 2008 Harlem could have filled up each section of this blog with new content every week, 2013 Harlem just doesn’t have the time so I need something to better reflect that.
It also needs to reflect who I am in 2013, a 30-something business owner on a journey to live a more abundant life; physically, emotionally and spiritually. These days I love eating healthy, running, finding ways to balance work and life as much as I love gadgets and gorgeous magazine covers.
So a change is coming and I’m excited about it but it won’t be rushed, it will be a careful and deliberate process. This blog has done so much for me, I’ve met some awesome people through it and achieved great things with it and I’m grateful for everyone who’s continued to support Harlem Loves through this bumpy transition.
The pace, culture and content of Harlem Loves is evolving so watch this space x
