Is this thing On

Wow, it has been an incredibly long time since I have written for this site. Im starting this post a few weeks before it goes up and I hope to speak as genuinely and passionate as I feel about my blogging hiatus and my niche change.

First, let me say that Syd and the City was never created to be a long term thing. From the very beginning my word to describe it has always been a stepping stone for me to continue to expand. Blogging has always been something I wanted to do and once God allowed for things to go forth, I also knew it wouldn't be a career. I had bigger goals and while blogging amidst them seemed like a fun thing, it never sit well enough with me for me to make it a forever thing.

The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride. Ecclesiastes 7:8 NIV
Am I ending Syd and the City? No, not technical, but I am redirecting my focus from it. Two years in the blogging word is a long time. To calculate all I've put into the blog would produce a significant amount of money, but I wouldn't change a thing. I believe in investing in not only yourself, but your hobbies in order to get the most out of them. I couldn't have grown it the way I did without putting in time, money, and hard work.

Now, it is my plan to turn this blog around from being fashion and lifestyle focused to reflecting me in the moment. I will not be producing weekly content on here, instead I will have a monthly Letter From the Editor and a few random posts that go live when I feel compelled to write them. I am growing in my walk with Christ, so there will be tons more spiritual talk and resources that I find because I want to share my God. I will also be taking in marketing work and posting here as necessary per my contracts.

I've mentioned before that as I change my blog has to change that's simply it. I took time off and while I missed writing a few times, I never really missed the work that goes into producing content. I've actually been inspired to create a different kind of content for the Syd and the City that's more fitting for daily life and allows my personality and voice *wink wink* to shine. I'll be utilizing Instagram and Facebook a lot more going forward, so please stay up to date there!
