See You!


 I sat down this morning to sign off for an extended weekend, as I’m heading to New York City for a little vacay, but I think it’s time for me to sign off for longer than just the weekend. 


I have been thinking of how I’ll write this post for quite sometime now, and to be honest, I don’t think I’ll ever figure out the perfect way, so I’m just going for it.

I have absolutely adored my blogging experience – It has lead me to meet the most wonderful people, build great relationships, and experience things I never would have if I didn’t blog.  I really think there will be days that I will miss it, but for the most part I think it’s best I close this chapter.

What has brought me to this?  Well, it’s a bunch of things.  I started my blog for fun, but now I find it feels more like an obligation because I don’t want to let my readers down.  I used to enjoy sharing what I came across online and bits about my life, but now with Switch Studio being so busy I don’t have time to browse online or do anything blog worthy {let alone photograph it} in my life {other than my work of course}.  And to top it all off, I recently had a bit of a health issue.  An operation has fixed it, but I’m still on close watch for at least the next two years – This changed me.  It changed my outlook on many things, and now, when I have free time from work I don’t want to feel like I have to be spending it online. 

I think blogging is a beautiful thing, and it fit perfectly in my life for quite some time, but things change, and it’s just no longer a good fit.  My focus has changed, by business has changed, my goals have changed, and I have changed.

I will miss all of you, some of you I know, and some I don’t – But you will all be missed.  I truly hope you will come and visit me over at The Switch Studio Blog, where I will be posting work related stuff weekly.  Switch Studio also has a Facebook page and Twitter account.  You can also find me {personally} on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, so please come say hello.

I thank you all for following along with my sweet little blog.  

See you!

  2. Oh Staci, I am so sad to see "inspired by life" go. But I completely understand. Other things take precedence over blogging. I hope all is well health-wise and I will continue to follow you over at Switch Studio and sing your reupholstery praises whenever I get a chance :) You are incredibly talented and I'm so glad to hear the business is going well. I'm sure I'll see you around soon! xoxo

  7. I have loved following your blog, but completely understand, if it becomes a chore or an obligation its not worth it. Will continue to follow you through switch and social media but it's been a pleasure getting to know you through your blog! Xo

  8. Staci! I will definitely miss reading your posts. I certainly understand the feeling of obligation; I am a much better blog reader than writer :). From one fellow Humber alum to another... I wish you all the best of success in the future and I can't wait to work with you once I get started in the industry.

    All the best,

    Chanele

  10. I'm just seeing this now! I can totally relate - blogging can be a huge time suck and something has to give (in my case I have been neglecting going to the gym!) Hope you are on the mend. Take care of yourself Staci and I'm sure we will connect on Twitter/FB etc. xo

  11. It's been way too long since my last visit here, and now you're gone :-( But I totally understand how you feel - blogging can be fun, but it can also be way too time consuming and frustrating at times. On the bright side, it's great that Switch Studio is doing so well and that you're still blogging over there :-) Hope you're doing well after your surgery, and I'm sure we'll catch up on FB & Twitter, and maybe at a future event in TO :-)

    Take care :-)
