This post has been in a long time in the making but, like most things you spend a lot of time thinking out, it rather difficult to put pen to paper - or in this case fingers to keyboard.
I've been blogging on Future Freaks Me, intermittently, for about four years. While I still love the blog it just doesn't feel like me any more. Over the last few years I've grown and changed a lot, and that left me thinking; what do I do about the blog? I wanted to keep blogging but knew that my current voice was no longer the same voice that started writing all of those years ago. I'm sure for a lot of people this progression comes very naturally and you grow with your blog, but for me I just felt disengaged with Future Freaks Me but still attached enough not to want to get rid of it.
After a lot of trying to fall back in love with Future Freaks Me and contemplating taking it offline I decided to create a new blog and start writing in a voice that felt more representative of who I am today - and so Santer's Grotto was born.
I'm still going to keep Future Freaks Me online but I won't be adding any new content to it - it's now a kind of artefact to look back upon and see how I've changed over the years. I'll still be carrying on with my 101 in 1001 challenge, so that will be featuring on Santer's Grotto.
I've been working on Santer's Grotto for a couple of months now and will be launching in the next few weeks, so until then I thought I would sign off here and give you all a heads up about my new blogging home.
I'm going to try and be organised and email all of my followers when Santer's Grotto goes live; so if you do get a random email in the next few weeks hopefully it won't be completely out of the blue!
Thank you to everyone who has ever read, followed and commented on Future Freaks Me. It really does mean so much to me and I appreciate all of your support. Hopefully I'll be seeing some of you on Santer's Grotto. Until then - happy blogging!
