Where Chiima Decides to Close the Digest

Recently I came to a decision which, I must admit, is one of the hardest decisions I have had to make in my life in terms of blogging so far;

I am going to end my Digest series, with #93 being the final post I make.

I know I'm close to 100, and originally I intended to actually stop my Digest then, but after recently becoming so busy with my everyday life thanks to University plans and work, I've had to kind of bring the idea of closing my Digest down permanently forward. Admittedly, it's not just my life getting in the way that has made me want to close my Digest either.

I've actually felt like closing down my Digest for a while now, but it never happened because I always found a reason to want to continue doing it, like it keeps my blog updated at least once a week, or I'm doing it to help others keep updated with news that they can't find every day because of being far too busy or something like that, however recently the feelings of wanting to update have just dwindled greatly, and now that my own life is becoming busier each week, I can no longer find a reason to update my Digest, or at least not as quickly as I would like to.

There are also other reasons behind the sudden closure of the Digest, such as the fact that I feel like I don't cater enough in terms of Idols to everyone, or that I don't update as often as I should. I've found that recently I also feel useless when writing a Digest, because I am not spending as much time on it as I should, or updating it daily before I can post it like I used to - the fact that it is no longer one of my top priorities in my blogging life made me realise that I can't really handle it well any more, and that maybe I should stop whilst I still can, before I start to really dislike it altogether. I know this way of thinking is very negative, but these are really the things I have been thinking as I did my Digests recently; I feel like I am a bad writer for leaving it so close to the deadline, and that they are no longer an important role in my blogging life. That is, sadly, the truth of this matter.

I have done my Digests for almost 2 years now, and I have enjoyed doing it greatly, I really have - when people commented that it was a good idea, I really felt like I had created something worthwhile and helpful to others, but lately it has just been harder, and there are so many more great blogs out there updating you on news that are better and much more reliable that my own Digest. You guys deserve someone reliable to update you, not someone who will wait two days after her supposed deadline to give you a weekly post. It is unfair to you, and I don't want to keep up the pretence that I can do it, because I know I can't.

I'm sorry, but I will be ending my Weekly Digest. Personal life issues are far too important now, and I just don't have the time. I feel bad for ending it now, but there are other things that are far more important to me than my Digest.

Tomorrow will be my last post for this series. I'm sorry that it had to end so suddenly, but I have truly enjoyed doing it these past two years. Thank you all for reading, and thank you for being a part of it all and allowing me to continue my Digest up until this point. It is sad to say, but the time has come for this serial to close.

Until tomorrow though, I will bid you adieu. Ja ne, tata and farewell.



  1. Aww I always look forward to your Digest Chiima. However I know exactly how you feel...trying to manage my video show and blog is difficult..However I look forward to all your other posts and if your ever interested in doing a crossover then just say the word :)

  2. That's okay, Chiima; all this means is that you're moving on to a new stage, in life and in blogging. The fact that you made it through 93 of these things is pretty incredible, I think. I could never do that.

  3. Wait a sec....
