Blog Update March 12th

It's been quite a while since I've done a blog update, but I figured I should do one and keep you up to date on what's going on with me and the blog. Since the last update post, I've changed quite a few things about the blog, and what I write and review. I want to be transparent about my reasonings for the changes I've made, and if you've stayed with me through these changes I really appreciate it!

You may have noticed the lack of spoilers for various subscription boxes lately. So far, I've actually only had one person inquire about that, but I've stopped doing them for the moment. It may not be forever, but for the time being I had to take a break from those kinds of posts. If you're not reading anymore because I'm not doing spoiler posts, then I'm sorry, but for the health of my own head space I had to quit doing them. I realized that every time I sat down to write a spoiler post, I did not want to do it. I would start the post and sometimes think about deleting before I was done because I wasn't devoted to them anymore. They took a lot of time to write, get all the images and links, but were not interesting to me. I'll be completely honest, they acquired tons of page views, but I'm not interested in just page views. I didn't feel the need to spend time and energy on making a post I hated writing.

The other thing about the spoiler posts is that many of the subscription boxes I was doing the spoilers for, changed the way they released that kind of info. Spoiler posts became almost unnecessary. Ipsy and Julep for instance released the spoilers unceremoniously on their own websites. And Julep mystery boxes had so many variations that a spoiler post wasn't really helpful to anyone, because you still didn't know which variation you were going to receive. In short, that's why I've stopped writing spoiler posts. I hope that if you miss those posts, you can understand why I had to quit doing them.

I am now focused on writing quality reviews about various subscription boxes and indie cosmetic companies/products. You may have seen, I started a YouTube channel! I still haven't quite decided what things are going to go up as a blog post, video, or both. I've got quite a few video ideas in the works though. And if you have anything in particular you'd like to see, let me know in the comments! I'm still planning out the rest of March's reviews, posts, and videos, so speak up if there's anything you'd like to see!
