Dear Readers, I Need Your Feedback PLEASE :)

Myself On My Wedding Day
This blog has gone through many changes since it's inception in 2008. It originally started as a wedding planning blog and after that became an open diary of my life more than anything else. As the new year approaches, I'm looking to change a few things in my life for the better, and this blog is one of those things. I've changed it a couple times trying to get it right but eeehhhhh. To be honest, I'm so sure that I'd like to use this an open diary anymore but I am sure that I'd like to blog everyday about something I'm extremely passionate about  - makeup, skincare, style, natural hair etc. Since becoming a makeup artist and skincare specialist {check the portfolio } a few years ago, I've had lots of family, (blog) friends, acquaintances, etc ask me if I have  own resource for them to read online with all my knowledge. Since becoming natural, I've frequently had the same question as well since quite a few people around me are thinking of going natural, in the beginning stages or have little girls without relaxers whose hair they're getting frustrated with.

That being said, I'm thinking of doing one of two things:

A)
Erase this blog but map the address to the new blog, which would automatically allow you guys to follow without having to add a new blogroll/follow a new blog.
Basically when you come to this site, you'll automatically be referred to the new site.

OR.

B) 
Part 1: Make This Blog Open To Invited Readers Only 
I've shared A LOT here...maybe over shared a little...I can't say I'm as comfortable with that anymore. Invited readers would be those of you who already read it anyway (I wouldn't shut you out). Besides, I would have love to have a space to vent occasionally without worrying that someone I know will read it

Part 2: Create A Separate Blog For My Makeup/Skin/Style/Hair stuff
That way, you won't be automatically referred over there and you can make the choice on whether or not you'd like to read - maybe you could care less about makeup and all that crap and don't want to even read about it and that's ok.

I'm thinking PLAN B, but I'm curious to see what you all think
will work best/be easier for you all.

. . . 

So what do you think everyone?
{note: new change will take effect January 1, 2012}

PS: I GOT MY WEDDING PICTURES YESTERDAY!!! YES AFTER 2 YEARS, I FINALLY GOT THEM AND IT'S NO ONE'S FAULT BUT MY OWN - MY PHOTOGRAPHER WAS GREAT :)

YOU LOOKED SO PURRDDYYY on your Big Day!
I say plan A...start fresh!!
Or wait if you plan on having those moments where you want to get more personal and share then Plan B!
Ion know...I'll be reading either way :-)

I would go with A. That way you don't have to feel uncomfortable about having the old posts you're less comfortable with out there, but your readers also won't lose track of your blog.

Hey Jin!
I say Option B. I actually thought of creating a blog to write about all of my very personal "stuff" and making it private. Its a way to release all of that energy into cyber space. Ultimately, do what makes you most comfortable.

TTYS!

Keep this blog alive! I had a co-worker lose an unborn child yesterday, and I would love to refer his wife to your page once she is in recovery mode. I would say invite-only, that way it remains intimate amongst your readers. Can't wait to see you so we can blog together!

Though I hate the idea of updating 2 blogs I think I'd have to go with Plan B...that way you get the best of both worlds....I feel your quandary though...as I'd love to loose weight and chronicle it on my blog but I know I'd get bored after a while so I don't even start...if that makes sense....

Sorry I am late but I say, option B if you have the time for it. I love the idea of you being able to talk about different things but keeping them separate works. I am sure once I finally decide what I will be doing I will separate my blog as well. I've had my own domain for months and haven't done squat with it.

Good luck to you!
