….HG and I did not get into a fight and decided to stop working together on I am Fashion and started our own blogs instead so we won’t have to work with each other. We still email each other daily about the intricate details of our lives and random thoughts we have, and feel extremely empty when the other is away and has no access to the internet. When I freak out, she is the first person I call and she is still my maid of honor when I fantasize about my wedding. Our reasons for closing down I am Fashion still stands, though I do think that my later rationalization of it in this blog is a better articulation of how we feel.
As for us continuing to blog even more regularly than before, I attribute it to the “newness” of our blogs. Starting a new blog is like starting a relationship. At the beginning everything is new and exciting as you get to know the other person and watch your relationship grow and mature. Every up and every down is a significant moment. Then the honeymoon phase eventually wears off and you reach a happy medium, where your relationship becomes a part of your daily life. With any luck, you will live happily ever after in this state with a few surprises here and there to spice up the norm. If not, your relationship will wane and you grow apart, eventually deciding that you are both better off parting ways.
Clearly I’m in the honeymoon phase. We are starting to explore new things together, trying to figure out what works best for the both of us. Every new post is an adventure. Every comment and email is exciting. I want to spend every moment of everyday with it, checking on its progress i.e. stalking the traffic, the incoming and outgoing links etc. It’s an exhilarating feeling that I’d almost forgotten about!
Analogy aside, it is heartwarming to know that the readers on this blog are either readers from I am Fashion who liked us enough to follow us to our new blogs, or new readers who likes what they see- not random Google searchers who just happened to click in. Thank you for your support, and I will try my best to live happily ever after with this blog. Wish us luck!
Good luck! i find your fashion opinions so insightful and I find myself agreeing with most of them. I visit your site often and can’t wait to see the growing process.
Just keep posting quality material and the rest will follow naturally! I look forward to seeing how it develops and evolves.
only stumbled upon your previous fashion blog recently but enjoyed reading through it, it’s be nice to see a wider variety of posts besides fashion from you so am looking forward to reading this one too
I love ya’lls blogs!
I am so happy to see that you have included various topics as well as fashion in your new blog. I started reading “I am Fashion” a couple years ago, and have always enjoyed it. I am sure you will do an amazing job with your new blog, I can’t wait to check back in!
Well, I am a random google searcher who stumbled on your old blog, and found your new blog via that… I’ll stay tuned!
Hey BG, just kept watching your blog from ‘I am fashion’ and followed the new link since the ‘split up’ (it’s only an expression and I hope there’s no misunderstanding about that) between you and HG. I totally understand the situation you just mentioned and excited about the diversity in your new blog. keep going girl, I’ll stay tuned.
