So, I want to start this post by saying that this blog has been a wonderful outlet for me the last 2 years. Before you come to conclusions, no I am not quiting the blog, I am simply changing the direction that I take it. For the last 2 years I have found myself constantly comparing myself to the countless other blogs and bloggers out there. It’s a deep dark rabbit hole and it’s difficult to climb out of once you’re down there. I realized about a month ago, that I missed blogging, but I didn’t want to continue trying to compare myself and posting things that looked like carbon copies of all the other blog posts out there. This last 2 years I have had a lot change in my own personal life, and I felt it was time to change my blog as well.
A Change of Pace
I have decided to change the purpose of this blog. I will continue to write about my travels, and all the things I’m loving; but I am going to be unapologetically me. I’m done avoid talking about real life. I want to be able to post photos that are taken on my iphone without feeling like it’s
less beautiful. I want to talk about the part of being an expat that are, honestly, not appealing and beautiful like so many people make it look on social media.
This blog is going to a mix of whatever the hell I’m feeling. A breath of fresh air if you will. A little bit of travel, a little bit of lifestyle, and a whole lot of me. I’ve gone ahead and change my domain so please, please save this new link rachelsusan.com. I hope that this blog will continue to grow and change alongside with me as I continue this journey we call life.
Please go ahead follow me on Instagram to stay current on my day to day, blog post, and whatever sarcastic thing I have to say that day.
