A few weeks ago, I had announced that I shall be shutting down my blog, KALEIDOSCOPE (www.jenniferkaleidoscope.com.), and that I would be leaving WordPress near the end of June to focus on my food service cleaning job as well as being an author; I had been trying to figure out what kind of exact date in the month of June in which I would be saying goodbye to WordPress and blogging, and it looks like that I had finally found the exact date for the month of June, and so with that, here it is: Mark your calendars, all of you bloggers and blog followers out there for Friday, June 14th, 2019, because that is the official date of my farewell to WordPress.
Now, truthfully, I really would like to stick around for a few more years and to provide you with more of the same kind of wonderful stuff that I have always provided you since the launch of my blog on November 13th, 2012, but the truth of the matter is that I have been struggling in recent years to come up with new ideas for blog posts, due to the fact that I now have a job, and with the full focus on my job, that creative well has started to run dry.
There also happens to be one other reason: Writing and publishing posts almost each and every day may be a very nice hobby in itself, but since I had gotten that job as food service cleaner, that other job of writing and publishing posts has become tough, not only due to lack of new ideas, but it has also become time-consuming. Plus, I have just started becoming an author a couple of years ago, and so with food service cleaning and the fact that I am also now an author in front of me, it has forced me to have no choice but to completely focus on those two things.
So it was with that that I have decided to leave WordPress and to quit blogging after 6-½ years, and I have made that announcement a few weeks ago about this, and now I have set the official date for my farewell, and that is Friday, June 14th. In the meantime, I very much hope that you folks will join me in the few months prior to my goodbye to WordPress as I prepare to write and publish special posts about the things that have helped make my blog so very special for all of those 6-½ years. I am so very grateful that WordPress has helped me to learn how to and to grow in learning how to write and create things; And if and when any of my planned books becomes a success, then hopefully someday I shall have that certain family to thank for helping me out all of those years, the family known as WordPress.
