Farewell, My Friends

I am writing to tell you that this will be my last post on Modern Marie. I have been blogging for nearly 4 years and I must say that it was a very positive and encouraging experience. For the last few months I have felt uninspired - not only for the blog, but in my real life too. Sometimes posting would seem more like a chore than an enjoyment, and it should not feel like that at all. I am taking some time off from blogging to experience things in my own life and get inspired again. This wasn't a rash decision, but something I have been pondering for a long time. I know that I will be back blogging again in the future, but with a new blog and a new mission. I started this blog when I was 17 and I am 21 now - I have definitely grown up and changed. These past 2 years have not been the best years of my personal life, so I want to take every minute to make the next two years fantastic.
I feel like with my next blog, it will be more personal and just everyday accounts of my adventures - wherever I shall be in life! I want my family and friends to know about it too - I have been blogging anonymous for the last 4 years. I will still visit all my favorite blogs (I have a lot) to keep in touch and to still be in the "blogging world" somewhat. Think of this as a Sabbatical and when I come back I will better than ever. Thank you for reading my blog for the past four years and leaving my encouraging and sweet comments along the way - it is definitely something I will NEVER forget!

See you soon!
- Modern Marie :)

...
*I keep the blog up for another month and then shut it down.
I'll also be spending my new time making stuff for my etsy shop.
And feel free to shoot me an email : modernmarie@live.com

I'm so sorry to see your blog go. I always looked forward to your posts and found them to be inspiring to me and my blog even if you were losing your own inspiration. Best of luck in your new endeavors!

P.S. I stumbled across this yesterday and it reminded me of "Modern Marie".

I'm sorry to here you're quitting blogging. But you should do what is best for you and if that means your once enjoyable hobby now feels like a chore, its not worth it anymore. It's great that you're finally recognizing this because we only have so much time in our busy schedules to do what we love and if this isn't what you love then I salute you for being brave enough to admit that. I also find it very hard to start a blog when you're a teenager and sustain it and its same content all these years. Even before I had to delete my old blog, I contemplated whether it was still the right medium to reflect who I am now. It was almost a good thing I had to shut it down (okay, the reason why wasn't too fun, but being able to so solidly move on was a good transition). I hope you do indeed return to blogging, but if you don't I wish you the best of luck and I hope that BOTH of us have better college careers after this point. We've both certainly had rough starts to the supposed " best times of our lives" and we deserve better. If you ever feel like chatting please feel free to email me at quintessentiallyquirky@gmail.com

bon chance!

Your blog was one of the first I read upon ''discovering'' the blogging world. It is sometimes difficult to find the positive things in life and your blog has most definitely been a source of positive inspiration.
All the best on you ''vacation'' and I look forward to your return.

Bon succès en ce que tu entreprends :)
