I’ve spent the last 3-4 months debating whether to carry on with My Long Hair Journey. For the longest time I’ve struggled to find things to talk about here. My life has evolved and expanded so much since I started the blog yet the scope of the blog has remained the same. I’m a mother, budding writer and business woman now but it’s difficult to share those parts of my life here as they are not all hair related.
I’d pretty much decided going into 2016 that I would wind the blog down. I wanted to keep it accessible to those looking for info on haircare, sort of a repository or archive. But I would no longer actively blog. However, one month into 2016 and I keep seeing signs that MLHJ is not yet ready to die an honourable death. I’ve had so many approaches in the last 2 months, which is baffling to me since I’ve not posted anything since November. It’ got me thinking that maybe I just need to sharpen the focus of the blog. I truly believe God is trying to show me that there is still a purpose and plan for MLHJ.
I remember when I first started my hair journey and how clueless I was about products. It in part led to me becoming a total product junkie, something which I no longer suffer from, thank God. It got me thinking about those early days of the blog and how excited and passionate I was about it then. There is already so much info available online about the basics of haircare and this info doesn’t really change. There are however, always new products and tools being developed. For newbies this can be daunting and confusing and I think MLHJ could play a big role in demystifying the product buying process. I plan to spend the next few months thinking through and planning the potential changes to the blog. I also plan to create a wider space where I can share all the other aspects of myself so bear with me y’all, I WILL BE BACK!!
