I thought long and hard whether or not I wanted to write this blog post. Mainly because my blog is due to expire in a couple of days and I wasn't sure whether or not it was the right decision to renew it.
I read an article the other day which was titled "Are you a blogger, or do you have a blog?". I'm pretty sure I just own a blog, but I'm definitely not a blogger, nor a good one at all.
However, the thought of not having a platform that consists of mainly writing, led me to the conclusion that I will regret closing down this blog. Much as I love making videos, I LOVE to write. I guess it's the fact that I have to update my three YouTube channels each week takes the toll sometimes, and I just neglect my blog by listing it as my last priority.
However, those of you who enjoy reading my blog will be pleased to know that I will be renewing this blog, and I will be making it a resolution to update this blog at once a week. Whether it be beauty-related, fashion-related or just writing pure nonsense - it will happen, starting with this one.
2013 was a year of many firsts. From reaching 1000 subscribers in June, to now reaching past 7000 - it has been such a rewarding journey. By no means do I see myself as 'successful' by getting to this point. I have such a long way to go. But as a subscriber to many channels myself, I know how difficult it is to get even just one single person to hit the subscribe button. I, myself, dislike clutter and if subscribing to channels means cluttering up my Subscription Box, then I do not subscribe to any channel. I subscribe if I like what I see, and I'm pretty sure many people out there are just the same, which makes me flattered and thrilled to have 7000 people clicking the little red subscriber button.
In relation to my personal life, 2013 had its ups and downs. The best part was probably graduating with a Distinction from my grad course in Fashion Management at the London College of Fashion. The worst part was leaving London.
My boyfriend and I started our long-distance relationship, and adjusting to the pace of Hong Kong was definitely a challenge.
For 2014, I want to be better. I was inspired by my grampy to be more selfless - to think for others rather than myself. I want to be closer with my family, especially my siblings, and to take better care of my parents.
I want to overcome my fear of crowds and going out on weekends. I can't imagine how much I've missed out on just because I feared driving to unfamiliar places. I want to catch up with old friends, and make new ones.
2014 is a year of experiencing new things, overcoming fears and setting new challenges for me. What about you?
