What's with the long hiatus, Blanche?

January 5, 2019

There were a lot of people who have been asking me why I haven't been writing in a while, others even started asking if this is finally the time when I finally decide that I'm going to transition into vlogging and a bunch of other questions I really didn't know the answer to. 

After a much needed rest, I've recently discovered the real reason why I needed to take that long break...

When you have been doing something for a really long time, you start to feel tired after a while. You start to notice and compare even the slightest change in circumstances which usually wouldn't matter if you're feeling inspired. 

But to be honest, I felt tired. 

I wouldn't want to enumerate what the specific reasons were because I don't want to sound ungrateful. I am blessed that even after that long break to take care of my mental health and other self issues, brands have been very supportive of me that I still get to come back to my passion/work even when I had a bit of an unexpected disappearance from the blog-verse

But I can share this much. 

I think it has been a bit difficult for me to put up things online when I myself was struggling with a funk where I feel like I'm starting to feel -- out of place and not myself?  

I have been blogging for 3 years now. I have seen bloggers come and go, transition into vlogging and others have given up to pursue other dreams. Me? This has been something that I always wanted to do since high school. This is my dream. *cheesy but true*

I enjoy trying to come of with stuff that people can read and learn from. I like hearing people say that they have enjoyed reading what I have to say, loved the photos I curated while asking for advices on makeup, skincare and personal life too! That's why it has been very difficult to question myself if this was something that I still wanted to do. 

Why do you still blog? People like watching stuff now... try vlogging?

Vlogging is something that I am considering in the future but not anytime soon. I want to transition into a new venture when I'm ready and not because I'm pressured into fitting a certain mold. That's no fun, right? 

Others may say that I am holding on to www.blanchecarpio.com for only sentimental reasons and because this launched my online career but I'd like to think not. I believe that I still enjoy writing for my readers and followers and that's something I treasure deeply in my heart. 

Thank you for really being patient with me and for letting me live my dream. 

Don't worry, I'm back!
