This Space

I didn’t have a lot of extra time in 2016. Actually, I probably did. I recently checked my battery usage on my iPhone and couldn’t believe how much time I had spent on social media the last week. I almost had a heart attack.

I’m entering into a new year (haha, well we all are). I’m entering into the last few months of my 20’s. I’m saying “yes” to lots of important things which means I have to say “no” to others.

I blogged around 30 times in 2016. It wasn’t something that felt too natural or exciting. I’ll be saying “no” to this online space for awhile (maybe forever) but it will continue to exist as it stands. No matter what, I’m forever grateful for it.

    Oof. I can really relate to spending too much time on social media. Once I came to that realization, I decided to take off from social media completely in 2017 and see what my life could be like offline. I think that I will actually blog more than I had been, because I won’t also be posting on Snapchat or Instagram, but we’ll see! I’m excited to see how I feel/what I think about all of this in twelve months. Wishing you lots of success this year and know that I’ll miss your posts! I’ve always enjoyed reading them when they pop up in my reader. :) xo! Eliza
