I never thought writing this blog post would be something I would ever find myself doing. However with the New Year being about endings as much as new beginnings, I think the time has come.
I am taking a break from being a blogger, at least for now… My interests in particular have shifted remarkably from what this blog was founded on. Yes I still love fashion, style, and food… but the way those things fit into my life has changed. I also work in digital marketing, which means I spend a lot of my working time on the computer. While I love my work for the challenges and opportunities it’s given me, it has meant I’m more interested in spending my non-working time away from the computer.
I do want to thank you for reading my blog and being a part of Style by Joanne as it has grown up over the past 3-4 years. It’s been a wonderful journey, and I’ve met some amazing people and been given opportunities that never would have otherwise come to me.
I might return to blogging in the future, though perhaps in a different shape or form. Though the best thing for me this year is to take a proper break, and enjoy this time in my life that I’m not quite sure how blogging fits into just yet. I still intend to be involved with the NZ Blog Collective, and of course will remain active on Instagram, and Twitter – so follow me there if you’d like to know what I’m up to.
For now, best,
