Welcome to CESCAMANDIGMA.COM!
Today is April Fool’s day, yet I felt like yesterday, the joke was on me (unfortunately it wasn’t quite funny). If you’ve been following me on my social media accounts then you would’ve read that my original blog has been deleted. I don’t want to go into details because it breaks my heart just to even think about it. If this is your first time reading a post of mine, then welcome!
WARNING: Brace yourself because this is gonna be a long one! So grab a snack and maybe a drink if you wish to continue to read.
I’d be lying if I said the choice of creating a new blog was an easy one. Upon realising what had happened, my brain just went into haywire and started to go all over the place. I was feeling an overwhelming gush of emotions. I was really thinking of stopping for good. I have had this struggle keeping up with my blog and at first I thought it was a sign for me to just quit. I was starting to feel the pressure of trying to be consistent, keeping up with the standards defined by social media as well as the high expectations I put on myself to do better. Call me overly dramatic. I know this isn’t the biggest problem the world is facing at the moment but if you put your heart into something, no matter what it is. you’d feel the same way if you realise it was gone in an instant.
There were some posts that I truly felt passionate about, like “How to Date a Chef”& “How to Move Abroad”. I tried to find a backup of these posts and much to my dismay, U was smart enough not to back up up separately (hint the sarcasm). But as I was looking back through my Tumblr account, which is where I tried to find a backup, I was starting to reminisce on the more simpler times of me blogging. I started to remember why I started my blog in the first place. It wasn’t to gain followers, it wasn’t for the money nor was it for the status. I did it to create a place to express myself and share my interests to those who are willing to read.
There came a point in blogging that I was pressured to choose a specific genre and focus on that because everybody says that’s what makes a successful blog. I lost sight of why I started doing it in the first place. Although I love makeup, it’s not the only thing that interests me. I love to travel, I love giving advice & sharing my experiences, I also love fashion and food just like every other person! My blog started as a means to connect with my friends and family. I wanted to share more and truth be told, I was getting tired of the regular social media platforms. When I first blogged, I would post anything and everything. It was like my online diary so to speak and I loved every minute of it.
With all the drama said and done, I have made a promise to myself to stay true to me. I don’t care what the world defines as a blog and how to be successful at it. I’m going back to my roots and just write content that I am passionate about. I’ll still be mainly a beauty blogger for sure. What can I say? I’m obsessed with makeup! But allow me to share more than just that. I hope you join me along the new journey. It’s honestly terrifying but I know it will be worth it. I can’t promise scheduled content or anything like that. However, I can promise that each post will be written from the heart and not just because I need to or someone asked me to.
Today makes a new chapter in my blogging life and I hope you’ll join me along for the ride. I want to rebuild what I’ve lost and make sure this time it will be even better. Here’s to new beginnings, new adventures and new memories to make!
As always, all of the love and support is very much appreciated. I love each and everyone of you and I can’t wait for what’s to come!
