a message to my readers

Mina fina bloggisar. Blev E-VEN-TU-ELLT jätteblödig när jag skrev detta inlägg, men here we go:
Denna plats på www är hela grunden till vad som blivit min lilla business. Fröet som började växa när jag fortfarande bokstavligt talat var ett BARN. Tänker ofta på vad tusan det skulle blivit av mig om jag inte skapat min första blogg på blogg.se 2008, om ni inte blivit ett gäng som fortsatte kika in.
Och vad KUL det har varit att se hur denna bransch har utvecklats (och fortsätter utvecklas)! Alla vi som befattat oss med ”sociala medier” de senaste tio åren har liksom varit med och skapat branschen samtidigt som vi själva formats av den, och även om fokus flyttats till andra kanaler kommer bloggen alltid vara närmast lillhjärtat mitt. 

De som känner mig vet att jag är svår att komma inpå skinnet, det tar lång tid för mig att kunna slappna av med människor. Därför värdesätter jag de nära relationer jag har fett högt. Samma sak gäller för min relation till er, få vänner har hängt med så länge som ni har. Ni som peppat och inspirerat mig genom utanförskap i skolan (något som var så så viktigt för min tillvaro då?? Är på riktigt för evigt tacksam för det självförtroendet), till att flytta hemifrån, mina första egna jobbuppdrag utomlands, starta företag, att flytta till Berlin, från Berlin och tillbaka igen, när hjärtat gick sönder och när jag hittade min soulmate. Även om ett helt gäng läsare fallit bort med åren och kommentarna blivit mycket glesare värmer ni fortfarande mig med er närvaro i statistiken. Kan tänka mig att era liv ser helt annorlunda ut nu än när ni första gången hittade hit.

Till poängen: med detta inlägg vill jag bara att ni ska förstå att jag, just för att jag värdesätter relationen till er, nu tänker ta en liten bloggpaus (min allra första!). Jag har helt enkelt så mycket att göra och tänka på just nu med plugg, jobb och händelser i privatlivet att jag aldrig känner att jag hinner skapa det innehåll jag vill kunna bjuda er på, och det känns liksom ovärdigt för både er och mig. Jag går runt med massor av ämnen att diskutera med er och upplevelser att berätta om, men har sällan möjlighet att få utlopp för det. Mitt innehåll blir antingen lite krystat eller intetsägande. Efter den här pausen vill jag komma tillbaka med massor av genomtänkta idéer och inspiration att dela med mig av!!

Okej. Detta är lite jobbigt för mig, men nu drar jag av plåstret: vi ses här senare i vår!!
Följ mig på bloglovin och instagram (om du inte redan gör det), så märker ni när jag återvänder. Ni får SÅKLART fortfarande skicka era gölliga mail med frågor och tankar till ebbazingmarkblog@gmail.com. PUSS och kram vi hörs snart igen!!! Ni är bäst.

Dear blog readers. Writing this post made me really emotional, but here we go:
This place on the world wide web is the whole foundation of what has become my little business. The seed that began to grow when I was still literally a CHILD. I often think about what would have become of me if I wouldn’t have created my first blog on blogg.se in 2008, if you guys hadn’t found this site, and continued to visit it.
It really has been such a fun journey to see how the ”social media” business has developed! Everyone who has been an online creative the past ten years have also been creating the industry while at the same time being shaped by it, and even though the focus has shifted a bit to other channels, this blog will always be closest to my heart.

People who knows me IRL also knows that I’m a bit difficult to really get close to. It takes a lot of time and work to make me completely comfortable with other people. Therefore, I value the close relationships I have very highly. Same thing applies to my relationship with you – few of my friends have actually been keeping up with my life as long as you have.
You guys supported and cheered me on through the times of feeling alone in school (something that was so so very important for me back then!! I’m really forever grateful for the much needed confidence boost that gave me), to move from home, my first own job assignments abroad, starting my business, moving to Berlin, from Berlin and back again, being heartbroken and finding my soulmate. Even if a whole bunch of readers have dropped off throughout the years and the comments are less frequent nowadays, you still warm me with your presence in the stats. I can imagine that your life looks completely different now than when you first found this site.

To the point: With this post, I want you to understand that I, simply because I value the relationship to you, now have to take a break from blogging (my very first!). I simply have so much to do and think about right now with studies, work and private life that I never have the possibility create the content I want to give you, and that’s not fair for either you or me. I walk around with lots of topics to discuss with you and experiences tell you about bubbling in my head, but rarely have the opportunity to let it out. Instead, my content ends up being bland. After this break I want to come back with lots of thought-through ideas and inspiration!!

Okay. This is a bit difficult for me, so let’s make it quick: see u later this spring! Follow me on bloglovin and instagram (if you’re not already doing that), I’ll make sure to announce when I’m back. And you can of course still send your sweet e-mails with questions and thoughts to ebbazingmarkblog@gmail.com. Hugs n kisses!! You are the best.

    I wish you luck and hope you will find what you need during the break! Real life is out there and blogging takes time. I remember started reading you back in 2009 and all the photoes from far north and continue reading it couple next years… And how happy I was I found your blog again back in 2018. I hope you will be back, but if not – totally understandable!

  4. Sara skriver:

    Haha blir också lite blödig, men jag uppskattar dina inlägg så mycket och du inspirerar mig med dina tankar och din vardag! Ta den tid du behöver<3

    When I started reading your blog many years ago I never imagined that I would move to Sweden and learn Swedish one day. It has been so fun growing with you and going through all the life changes ”together” (I moved in with my partner around the same time you did with Sean! haha). I look forward to reading you again soon!

    Kram från en som följt dig sedan Lookbook, innan Berlin, och flyttat från Gbg till Norrbotten sedan du flyttat söderut. Ta hand om dig så hörs vi snart igen!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a really long time. We are the same age, but it’s interesting to see how totally different our lives are, similar though our interests may be! I have loved following along with you, not just for your fashion content but also for your more thoughtful posts, and I hope to see more of these in the future. Good luck with everything and see you again soon <3 hugs from Australia.

    I can’t say how long I’ve been following you exactly for, but it’s been some time now x3 I never commented before on anything you’ve done, but I just wanted to take the time to say that you can take all the time you need. I’m sure your readers will understand as everyone needs a break from things, to step back and catch ones breath before returning fully refreshed. I wish you all the best and hope for good days to keep continuing. Keep being you, and keep on keeping on :3

    I remember seeing your posts on lookbook.nu and finding your blog in 2012. Since then, I’m visiting your blog every week. For me, you’re one of very few bloggers/social media girls who is truly honest with her readers (this post shows that), and I really appreciate that!
    Enjoy the break and take as much time as you need. 🙂

    I started following in 2009 thanks to Lookbook and since then I came once a week to see what you were up to. You really helped me with all of your posts going through things and you’re the last blogger I actually read. Anyway, all of this to, first, thank and, second, tell you to enjoy your well-deserved break and take care ! <3

    Kommer inte ihåg exakt när jag hittade din blogg, men jag minns så väl första gången jag såg ditt röda hår poppa upp på lookbook och sedan dess har jag läst din blogg. Hade även en egen blogg på den tiden och fastän jag inte bloggar längre så var min blogg extremt viktig för vart mitt liv tog mig, det var nämligen via den som jag träffade Matt från Australien. Och sju år senare sitter jag nu i min soffa, bredvid min man i Australien och läser din blogg. Så kan det gå! Hoppas du får en riktigt härlig blogg paus så ses vi när du kommer tillbaks 🌿

    Don’t worry and enjoy your time! Always good to focus on few things, otherwise one gets lost between too much.
    And just a fun thing to smile about: it really inspired me, that you made Kimchi by yourself. So I kept this thought and a few weeks later I talked about making Kimchi to my mum. She got inspired as well and is now making Kimchi regularly. As she is from Korea but lives far away (in Europe), it makes her happy and gives her those sparkling eyes to do this and connect with her traditions (she didn’t make Kimchi before for years). 🙂

    SO SAD to read that in the morning!You really inspired me a lot! You made me know about Sweden, not only about fashion. Anyway, everyone have their own pace on every stage of life. Hope to see you, your ideas, your pictures soon!
