Prepare for a post and a half because I think this is going to get long. But this is something I need to talk about. And its not going under a keep reading because you need to read this.
I love you all. So much. You have all been so amazing and supportive and wonderful, and I appreciate each and every single one of you. Which is why this decision does not come lightly, and I have actually been contemplating it for a couple of weeks, but due to recent events in my life, I feel as if it’s right.
March 31st will be the final day I post stories.
Take a moment, absorb that, and yes, you did just read that.
It’s time. To me, it is. I have loved writing for this blog, and never in a million years thought that it would become what it did, and am eternally grateful for the love and support you have all given me during this ride.
There are still so many amazing Joe Sugg imagine blogs, and I cannot wait to see them grow and flourish and become even more amazing (and to those that I talk to who run these blogs, I’m proud of you! To those that I don’t talk to but run one, I’m proud of you too!).
I’m ready to step back and give these blogs even more of a chance to shine, with one less blog posting.
All the stories, the 500+ that I’ve written (whaaaaa) will remain up. I am not closing this blog nor removing any stories. But you will notice some changes after March 31st.
I’ll be going through and cleaning up the blog, removing anything that is not a story or the request that went with that story. I’ll also be going through and editing all the stories since I’ll have a chance finally, and there is some that REALLY need it haha.
I’ll be stopping requests probably the week of the 31st, and post the last story on the Friday.
I’m not gone. I just won’t be able to be reached via this blog. I’ll be closing the ask box on March 31st, but that doesn’t mean you can’t come talk to me if you just need someone to talk with or you need some advice.
I’ll be available over on my main @tizniz and you can always come talk to me there. Don’t be scared. Don’t think I’m leaving you just because you can’t reach me on this blog. I don’t want you to ever think that I’m leaving you. Please, don’t be scared to come over there. I mean it. I want you all to understand I’m still here for you if you need me.
You’ll notice that I’ll still be posting on my Joeck blog, because I don’t feel done with that blog, and I’m still wanting to continue with it. It’s still a baby compared to this blog haha. That and I still believe this site needs more Joeck.
And hey, I may still write more Joe stories in the future, and if I do, I’ll be posting them on here.
I mean it you guys, i have loved this blog so much. Yes, it brought me stress, but it also brought me love and support. I’ve made some amazing new friends because of this blog (Like Sarah, Alyssa, Ashley, Haley, and Meegan, who are some really important people to me now). And my little anons that message me all the time, or those of you that I talk with on the Tumblr messenger. I love talking with you guys. Your messages always put a smile on my face.
Feel free to come chat over on my main, I still want to talk with you!
Gods, I’m going to start crying now haha.
I have been thinking about this a lot over the past couple of weeks, going back and forth on if I should finish, or if I should continue, wondered if I should just check in with myself at the end of the month, blah blah. But then these past couple of days, well, actually its been a couple weeks also, have been rough. I’ve been struggling. The past few days were the worst. And I had one of my worst nights in years the other day, and it made me realize I need to seek help and change some things in my life.
I’m going to start taking steps towards making myself healthy again, and I think one of those steps is stopping this blog, to relieve some stress from my life (even though I loved writing for this blog).
I cannot put into words how much I appreciate all of you. If I could meet each and every single one of you to thank you, I would. Because that’s how much you mean to me.
I’m sorry that this blog is coming to a close. I know how much some of you look forward to these stories, and it does hurt to let you down, but it feels like the right time for this.
Remember, I love you. And I’m still here for you, even if it’s not on this blog.
