Good Things Don’t Have to End

August 30, 2012

When I started this blog in 2009, I never imagined it would gain readership. I only wanted something where I could write about what I wanted and post some of the works that I’ve done.

There was a time when this blog did really well and had many readers. Joining poetry groups really helped. My blog was noticed. My poems were noticed. Sadly, though, I became too busy to even spend a couple of minutes on the blog, much less write at least one poem every week.

I have been neglecting this blog for months. I can’t believe it. I love this blog. I do not want to lose this blog at all.

However, it is also time for me to move on to other things.

I have a new blog at my personal domain now. Its at http://blog.ishabelle.com

This does not mean I won’t keep this blog anymore. It’s just that I have grown and changed over the last two years, and I want to share another part of my story this time. I hope to see you there, and thank you for the support here on Chocolate High.

To Lucky Firsts and New Beginnings

August 29, 2012

I am so happy to have finally made a decision to have a Chapter Two for my blog, Chocolate High.

For the past couple of years, I’ve been hot and cold on my WP blog. I have, in fact, neglected it for several months. It’s not because I did not want to write. It’s just I felt like most of the things I have blogged about before does not connect to the way my life’s running this time.

I am so thankful that God has blessed me with so much more than I have ever imagined. While it’s true that I have asked for more, I am speechless at the prayers that he answered from me.

Much has changed since I started Chocolate High. I’ve evolved, changed careers more than twice, grown up and traveled a lot. I am the same person as I have always been, but I look at things differently now.

I hope I get to maintain Chocolate High’s 2nd chapter as much as I did the first. I don’t expect a sudden rise in viewership and site popularity. For once, I am going to write a blog and not care if anybody reads it or not. I hope someone does, but it won’t hurt me if they don’t.

I want to say that all the struggles and hardships I ever went through don’t even come close to how sweet life has turned out to be after a couple of years. If anybody out there is going through some tough times right now, know that everything on earth passes. Joy and sorrow do not remain. Laughter and tears do not remain. What does remain is a man’s strength of character along with his faith to his God.
