So: No blog entries for the longest time.
Reason being that I was having a bit of a crisis about what to do with Domesticity, now that I'm on the verge of getting other things done with work and family and my own writing projects and (possibly) graduate school. To be honest, it has been driving me crazy, too, because I see other Filipino bloggers getting more readers for the same things that I do, and it makes me wonder if I'm doing anything wrong by keeping up this blog as it is.
Let's be honest: Without direct access to the primary content for this blog - in this case, makeup and fashion - there really is nothing much left for me to write, especially now that I'm too tired to look up and scan pictures. And even I get sick and tired of writing about hot guys, too.
(Yes, guys on The List, I am fully aware that a few of you have gotten even more boink-worthy as of late... but sometimes a girl just needs to spend her quality time at Net-a-Porter, you know? Unless you really are that interested in buying those Miu Miu shoes for me.)
So what's left for a girl in her mid-30s to do with a blog like this?
Easy. Break down the fourth wall.
Yes, I'm going to be a little more personal here in Domesticity - not too personal, mind you (remember, I still live by my own rules) - but I will start making a greater effort to make my voice heard. Apart from the pop-culture content that's currently on this blog, you will also read more about my thoughts about my personal projects as well.
So here's what I am going to do: I am going to enforce the same M-W-F writing schedule that I have been trying to keep up with Domesticity in the last few. This time, however, I will blog whatever comes to my mind on that given day. It could be anything from a short paragraph about my favorite lip gloss or a big manifesto about the books I've been reading - the point being that I will not stop blogging on the things that make me happy and thankful to be alive. Yes, it's a little gratitude-journal-y, but after this whole dark phase that I've gone through (and I'm sure you've had your own dark days as well) a little sweetness and light should be in order, don't you think?
And it all starts... on Wednesday.
