After taking a week off from blogging, I have decided that it wasn’t long enough.

This will be the last post I write for a while.

Reflecting on the blog this past week, I realized I’m no longer happy with the content I’m creating. The blog has turned into the same shit everyone else writes about, and that was never my goal. The design of the blog has also frustrated me since day one. No matter how hard I work to find a design scheme I like, it never felt right.

I also feel let down that for all the work I put into creating beautiful photos and writing strong, meaningful content, I haven’t gotten much in return. The blog’s readership hasn’t grown since the beginning. That’s not good enough.

I also stopped reading blogs this week, and found I didn’t miss most of them. I’m not alone in this. Perhaps this is the beginning of the end for blogging? Lately I have found more enjoyment from reading magazines, books, and letters from friends than anything online. Maybe it’s a phase. I’m not sure.

I am going to take a longer break to figure out what the future holds for Afternoon Glow, and what the future holds for life in general. Maybe someday I’ll come back to this. Maybe I won’t. I might be back in a month, a few months, or a year. I don’t know.

For all of you who have been reading from the beginning, thank you for sticking it out for so long. I appreciate that you’ve been there to read, comment, and engage in whatever ways you did. Hopefully I’ll be back soon, but if not, thank you either way.

If you want to keep up with me away from Afternoon Glow, I’ll still be on social media (Instagram and Twitter mainly).

Goodbye for now. I’ll be back when I have something to say.
