Thank you for your support

I want to start this blog post by saying that I am not interested in sharing details about what happened publicly and if you’re here for drama you can leave now.

On Wednesday (yes it has been this many days) something happened. Read THIS blog post if you have no idea what I’m talking about.

After what happened, many people have messaged me to ask if I am okay and I got many compliments as well. And I wanted to thank you all for that. It means a lot to me that strangers were reaching out to me and making sure I didn’t feel discouraged. I will remember this.

I took a little break from blogging and reading other blogs, and posting and liking on Instagram as well. I am okay, but it was a very bizarre situation to be in and something I hope to not experience again. It is good to know that if something like that ever happens again, people will have my back. So I don’t want to shy away from blogging. (And I paid for hosting in advance, haha.) I really like blogging and taking pictures, that’s why I have been doing it for four years now. I am currently figuring my schedule out since I missed a few days and I am not sure what to post.

To look on the bright side of it, my blog stats were crazy high, I got a few new followers, and I now know who my online friends are.

I also want to thank everyone that has been supporting me before Wednesday as well. I see all the likes, comments and shares, and they make me very happy! You rock!

I hope you are looking forward to my upcoming blog posts and pictures. (And if you’re not, feel free to unfollow. No hard feelings.)

If you want to support me, you can follow my blog on either WordPress or through email (look at the bottom of my blog), follow me on Instagram, and maybe consider taking part in or sharing about my monthly writing challenge called Little Writing Challenge.

    Hi. I’m sorry that you went through that this week. You’ve done the right thing in taking a mini break and the right thing in coming back. I have to say, I honestly hadn’t seen your blog before but it is quite beautifully presented, very fresh and I’m sure a delight for your regular readers so just keep doing what you are doing as I think a lot of folk would miss you if you didn’t.

    Glad you are ok and come back. As a new follower I wouldn’t have found your blog if it wasn’t for the kerfuffle and I am looking forward to seeing your posts and attempting to joining in the writing challenge.

    Take care x

      Thank you! And that’s a good thing as well, people who otherwise wouldn’t have found my blog know about it now. X

    Glad to hear you are okay. What a thoroughly despicable experience for you. Best wishes from France.

    Thank goodness youโ€™re OK. I was worried. Keep posting on your beautiful blog and Instagram page. I love books primarily and using images with books and cups of tea in my vintage china plus books. Iโ€™m nowhere near as good as you on the use of images. Youโ€™re very talented Sophie x

      Thank you so much๐Ÿ’– I will, but it might take a while before I’m 100% back to enjoying it. No need to be the best at taking pictures, as long as you enjoy what you’re doing. And oohh vintage china๐Ÿ˜ x

        Thanks Sophie. I do, or I did enjoy but Iโ€™m not blogging again now. Couldnโ€™t face it. Only talking about books on Instagram as and when. I actually canโ€™t read a book at the moment because of it all. Take care and you know where we are should you need us xx

          I’m so sorry you are not blogging again. But I really understand. I’m the same, haven’t touched a book since this happened. I find no joy in it at the moment and can’t focus. But it’ll come back. Take care!

    I didn’t know something happened. Some of us enjoy your content / images without caring what others think of them.
    Glad to see you’re back!

    You sound great – balanced and stabilizing from what could have skittered you off-center. Keep up the good work, Soph!

    That is truly appalling. I’m sorry this happened and glad that are continuing. You have great photos btw ๐Ÿ‘ The blogging/writing/book community is usually pretty supportive at least that’s what I’ve found as we all share similar passion and interest. Hope this was just a one off experience.

      Thank you!! Yes, this has also shown me there are way more supportive people๐Ÿ˜Š And I hope so too.
