Today is the blog’s 2nd anniversary. Today I want to recommit myself to this passion project of mine, remind myself why I write, why I read, and why I want to share that love with the world.
In the far off world of three years ago, I was a teenage girl, in high school, with a rediscovered passion for reading and wasn’t afraid to share this nerdiness with the world. I was always a writer/wanna-be blogger who had just discovered the world of Bookstagram.
That is where I began the concept of LazyCoffeePrincess. The idea came to me one morning while I had been scrolling through Tumblr, jealous of all the cool content that was being posted. I had to get my own corner of the web to share this part of myself with the world. So I created a name that fit me perfectly (as I was laying in bed until noon that day) and thus became my own Lazy Coffee Princess and my little kingdom was created.
This outlet was there for me when I went to college (5 hours away from home) for the first time. It was there as I came back home, feeling defeated, needing a comforting community to turn to. It was there for me when I went through the excitement of moving houses after my mom (who had raised me as a single parent) got remarried and we moved. That was one of the biggest adjustments of my life: learning how to live with a male roommate (he’s my stepdad, but basically that’s what I was learning how to do). This blog has been there for me for every major adult life change so far, and I plan on keeping it a part of my life for as long as I can.
Now, I am on my own. Moved away from my hometown and parents. Attending college while navigating the world of having a full time job. I have declared my major and minor and am proud to wear the badge! English literature with a minor in philosophy. Yes, I am a reader and writer through and through and I am not afraid to wear the title proudly.
I know that I have seemed to abandon the idea of having this blog time and time again, I can never fully get it off my mind. I cannot deny who I am: a reader and a blogger who enjoys shouting into the void. I am a story teller, a content creator, a sharer. I promise to never quit this entirely, but might go through periods of business where I can not be full attentive. I apologize for my short comings, but know that I will always be here for you, my sweet little blog.
So if you, dear witness to this vow renewal ceremony, are feeling the urge to create the blog or start a hobby or passion project or something that you feel compelled to, then do it. Put the risk out there, wear your heart on your sleeve. There will be ups and downs like there are in all relationships, but you will be there for each other at the end of each day.
Thank you for bearing witness to this sacred ceremony.
