There was a blog from Sweden that I loved – bjooti.net. I won’t link to it because I found out over the weekend that the blogger has shut down the blog and removed its archives. I couldn’t read Swedish of course – I’m not that linguistically inclined – but Google translator is a huge help, and her gorgeous pictures spoke for themselves.
One of the reasons advanced was that it was just getting too much to keep pushing to stay in front – to be the latest with the newest news all the time (being one of the top European beauty bloggers, she was). It left her no time to herself because our blogs for many of us, are a hobby and after 3+ years she decided enough was enough. I’m sad about it of course – she was a lovely blogger, but it also made me think.
I’m hitting that 3+ years bump – we’ll turn 4 in just 8 months! And I’ll be honest that the whole chasing for new news thing got overwhelming and has been overwhelming. I’m thankful of course, that I’m able to indulge in my little hobby, and thankful that I am being consistently fed with news about… you guessed it, the latest and newest, and I’m eternally grateful and thankful that so many of you out there find the information helpful and useful.
But I’ve decided to make a little change here at My Women Stuff. It was a decision I made (and one I’ve implemented) before I learnt about bjooti.net but that was the little push I needed and I thought I’d tell you about it.
