For the first time in 12 years, I have put FashionBombDaily.com on hiatus.
On January 1st, I woke up. And I didn’t feel like running to my laptop and updating with posts you had already seen on Instagram. Nor did I feel like begging anyone to do it in my stead. I needed a break. And I figured most people go to Instagram anyway, so I just redirected everyone there.
I have seen the numbers and the lack of comments on the site vs. IG and didn’t expect anyone to notice! But surprise: I’ve gotten quite a few questions via email and DM, so here I am.
I am using this time off to re-strategize and redesign. We’ve been wanting to give the site a facelift for quite a while now. We are moving more towards a magazine format and less of a blog format. We will be focusing on original content and interviews vs. the celeb looks you can find easily on IG. We will keep the good stuff and trim the fat. The Goal is to present you with a destination that is modern and easy to navigate with evergreen thought provoking articles and original works of art.
It’s been a bit difficult for me emotionally not having the site up. I feel guilty, as if I’ve let people down. It feels weird. But it’s also been liberating. I’ve been using this time to do me. Continue to write my book. Work out. Stick to a low carb diet. And plan for bigger and better things.
It was time to just pause, reposition, then come back with the heat. I promise, it will be worth the wait.
Keep an eye peeled for a reveal in February:)
Love & Light,
