After a much needed break and some time away from GloriousEats, I sent a question to you, my amazing devoted readers via Facebook:
Should I keep this thing going?
When I put my degree on hold to move here back in August, I felt like I lost a part of myself. I was in the running to become a dietitian and work at my dream job, and within a month it all came to a hault. I am not saying I made the wrong choice (Heck no! I am so happy to be here with the love of my life!), but I definitely had a hard time saying goodbye to that dream. Every post reminded me of what I couldn’t have. Now I realize that I may have just needed to take that step away from blogging to heal myself.
The truth is, GloriousEats helps keep that passion of mine alive.
As I near my one-year-anniversary since starting GloriousEats, I can tell you that I have had 1/4 of a million page visits. (Yep, that’s 250,000!) Ive made some incredible new friends and took part in some fantastic health and wellness events! I experienced so much, but the one thing that meant the most to me? Looking back at all of the e-mails and messages from you – my readers. To know that I have motivated or inspired ONE person absolutely makes everything I have done worth it. After all, that’s why I started my degree in the first place!
So, what now?
Thanks to your kind words, I’ve decided to keep GloriousEats alive!
I am currently working around 60 hours per week, so I will probably start with one post per-week and work my way up from there. I’ve also decided to expand and write about various other aspects of health.
Thank you, thank you, thank you all. You have made me realize once again how truly blessed I am!
See you soon!
