It is with a heavy heart that I write my last post here at One Can't Get Over the Habit.
As you are well aware, I have struggled to write regularly here in the last few months. Things have been so busy in my writing and personal life, and I am now blogging weekly over at wendymcleodmacknight.com.
I've simply run out of time to blog here regularly, and frankly, it has been really bothering me.
When I began this blog, it was after discovering wonderful blogs like Dani's or Janet's or Fabulous Florida Mommy's. I didn't know anything about blogs and I muddled my way through.
But it was a creative outlet that I loved. And it planted a seed that led me to pursue a different kind of writing: writing children's books, my lifelong dream.
Since I left my job three and half years ago, I have had amazing times and good times and even the odd depressive and unhappy time as I began to question whether I had made the right choice or not.
Finally, last year, I broke through into the publishing world. And later this summer I will be making an announcement over at wendymcleodmacknight.com with even bigger news. But it is news that will be taking all of my time.
Things are going well, but the writing is never easy and it is WAY more time-consuming and demanding now than it has ever been. That's not a complaint - I love it - merely a reality.
I'll still be posting personal things over at instagram, so I hope you'll follow along there. There may be the odd packing pic over there, as I expect a LOT of travel over the coming two years! And for sure I will need help picking out the odd dress for an event! I'm also active on twitter @wendymacknight, and will be incorporating more personal into my writer's blog in the future.
This has been a joyful space and I love you all for that.
“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”

Thank you kindred spirits!
Hi Wendy, of course I've missed the blog over the last few months; it's always been such a cheery place and I have especially loved following along your fashion adventures (I hope you leave it up). However, it's so wonderful that your writing has taken off in such a splendid way; that has to be the best reason ever to close down a blog! :0) Good luck with everything, look forward to following along on your website.ReplyDelete
Thanks Patricia - and I will be adding more personal there, now that this blog is winding down!Delete

Hi Wendy, your new career is taking off in such a big way so this comes as no surprise. (As it so happens, I plan to shut down my own blog sometime in the near future.) Of course, I will continue following you on Instagram and your new website. I can't wait to hear about what is coming next for you!! Best of luck with everything!ReplyDelete
Thanks Louise! The announcement coming soon is HUGE and I am so excited! Hard work and perseverance does pay off! As you well know...Delete

Thank you for all your posts over the years, Wendy. I'm so thrilled that your writing career is taking off. You are an inspiration!ReplyDelete
Thanks Miss Hex! I think of you almost daily, as I have your avatar in my office! JOhn Singer Sargent is a part of my announcement (how's that for a very vague clue!)Delete
Miss you already. Tears.ReplyDelete
Awww - I hope you check in now and then on instragram or the other website! You are a doll!Delete
Gosh, I just happened to pull up your bookmark this am; the end of an era, but you are already into a new time. I will always follow you/know you regardless of which blog/book (???) you are writing; pop down this summer if you want to get away!ReplyDelete
I am trying! Thanks Lane! Love you!Delete
Wishing you all the best. I will follow you whatever blog you post on. Your writing always brings me joy. Continue your passion, and success will certainly follow.ReplyDelete
Thank you SO much, that means the world!Delete
All the best to you and your new endeavors! I will look for you in your new online places :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Cate! I will be travelling a lot in the U.S in the next year - maybe you will find me!Delete
Best of luck Wendy! I'll follow you along on your other blog and Instagram. So happy for all of your success and glad to have seen you go through the process from the start.ReplyDelete
Thanks A! Your little one must be almost ready for my books! ;-)Delete
I'll miss this blog but will move on over to the other site!ReplyDelete
And in real life, I hope!Delete
I will miss your rants about fashion, garden critters and the like. Of course I will keep up with you on IG and the new blog!ReplyDelete
Thanks SC! No doubt there will still be rants!Delete
Wendy, thank you so much for all of the time and love that you gave to this wonderful blog. Your efforts always brought merriment to me. I am so happy to read about your new success. It is most certainly well deserved! I will look for you on Instagram and wait to hear about all the new adventures your life will hold. Yours was the first blog I found and I enjoyed getting to "know" you. All the very best my friend!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much! I hope we actually see each other soon, as I will likely be in NYC a lot in the coming two or three years!Delete
A visit in New York would be absolutely wonderful! I will send an email to make sure that you have my contact information..Delete
Wendy, It is with a heavy heart that I just read the news about your blog. Of course, I fully understand, and I am so gladdened that your writing career is heading in such a wonderful direction!ReplyDelete
I will catch you on Instagram, and your writing blog. I have similar thoughts about my forlorn blog. Work has certainly gotten in the way...
I am so very happy you will be in NYC- don't lose my info : )
Also- I have no idea what JOhn Singer Sargent means, but I can't wait to find out!
Can't wait to see you again, Pat! THANKS!Delete
