It’s officially been one full year since my last post. 12th April 2019.
Someone asked me the other day, “Hey, someone told me you’re a KOL (Key Opinion Leader). You have a blog or something?” I chuckled. “Yeah, that was a long time ago”, I replied.
To be honest, I have been so disconnected from blogging and have not done a single piece of content for the blog in what felt like forever. The blogger side of my personality felt like it was from a previous life. A carefree, single and lots of time on my hands, Winnie. And I’m at a different phase in my life now. No longer do I have the same motivations. The same passion. The same amount of time to dedicate to maintaining the blog.
I started the blog in 2009 (ish) and have spent significant years very active in blogging – creating consistent, strong and well thought out content for the blog all the time – written, video or otherwise.
It was a great part of my life that I enjoyed and I love creating content.
I love writing (even when I’m not exceptionally good at it).
I love playing with new gadgets (and appreciate all the new stuff that was sent to me for review, and the new toys I got to play with, and events I got exclusive invites to attend).
I love keeping up with the latest tech news (and still try to be as updated as I can today).
I love shooting and editing videos (however amateur they turned out).
Currently with the Coronavirus lockdown, a lot of people, celebrity or regular Joe’s alike, have turned to content creation across different platforms (Instagram, Tik Tok, YouTube), as we’re all stuck at home bored and so hungry for content. The natural part of me who wants to create, rather than consume content, is itching to contribute.
Realistically though, my life has evolved. I have a very consuming day job. A career I have built in the last 20 years!!! I am now a mom. As cliche as it sounds, it does drain you. Physically and mentally. Most importantly, my priorities have shifted.
So this is it – with my usual lengthy post rants – I am ending the blog for good. There will be no more WinnieKepala blogpost. No more WinnieKepala #HeadsUp:TECH videos. No more sponsored posts. No more content coming from this blog.
The winniekepala.com domain will live on until it expires the end of the year. The WinnieKepala Instagram will remain public but will be filled with mostly my personal posts. My WinnieKepala Faceboook Page will continue to live on though, and I will use that to share thoughts and posts on tech, news and lifestyle stuff. Twitter profile – well, I’ll keep that for now, as a personal share. TBH, I don’t really know what to do with my Twitter for now.
So you can still keep following me on Social Media, if you like. But blogposts, well this is the end.
Thanks for all the support – reading my blog posts, commenting on my stuff, watching my YouTube videos. And everything in between. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You’ve all been a part of a very enjoyable and beautiful part of who I am and I’m very appreciative – from the bottom of my heart.
It’s time to move on to another chapter and close this one. Goodbye, WinnieKepala.com blog. Goodbye, followers and readers.
