    Bye (For Now!)

    My move to self-hosted is going to start soon so I don’t know when I’ll post next but I will post as soon as possible. I may take a few days off to just chill and take a break from blogging since it’s my mid-term break next week anyway. And I feel like I need a mental health break after everything that has happened with WP over the last few days. I also want to take some time to customize my blog after the move and just get everything perfect before I start posting again. I also have some SEO stuff I need to work on. BUT I have so…

    What Self-Hosting Means For You

    Self-Hosting And How This Will Effect You I just wanted to confirm that I will be self-hosting from here onwards. I contacted WP on multiple occasions asking them to unblock me but they completely ignored me and encouraged me to leave so that’s exactly what I will be doing. To be honest I no longer want to be on a platform that does not really care about its users. Here’s a great article on the basics of self-hosting: https://ellesunpopularopinions.com/the-basics-of-understanding-self-hosting/ I have received multiple emails and messages about the situation and what it will mean for my audience/followers. That’s why I wanted to post this as soon as possible to explain…

    Cancel Culture- My Thoughts

    What Is Cancel Culture? Cancel culture refers to the popular practice of withdrawing support for (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive. Cancel culture is generally discussed as being performed on social media in the form of group shaming. – Source: https://www.dictionary.com/e/pop-culture/cancel-culture/ My Thoughts Before I give my opinion on cancel culture I just wanted to have a little introduction. The reason I decided to discuss this topic today was because cancel culture is something you can’t get away from right now especially if you use social media.

    How To Feel At Peace With The Way You Look

    Perfections And Imperfections (Unsplash CC0) Self-esteem and body image sometimes go together. When we’re not happy with the way we look, we can lose confidence, and hide away from others. On the flip side, when we do feel happy about our appearance, we can act confidently and feel better within ourselves. This is something you might identify with.

I know it can be a struggle to accept your imperfections and to love your body the way it is- it has definitely been a…
