Hi everyone, it’s been a great 5 years of blogging about interior design and home downsizing, but it’s time to move on.
At the beginning of last year, I shared a post about my blogging plans for 2016 with the goal to publish twice a week.
In April, I launched my new author platform and website for all things writing. I moved my blog to this site with a link to my interior design blog on Bettina Deda colour design. Blog subscribers, who found me because they were interested in downsizing, only received posts in the Interior Design category.
As the year went along, I noticed that my interest shifted more and more towards writing and I found it harder and harder to come up with new interior design posts. In June, I decided to put my podcast on hiatus for the same reasons. I just felt that after almost two years of weekly shows I was not as passionate about it anymore as I was in the beginning.
Overall, 2016 developed into a rollercoaster year with many ups and downs. As a result, I made the decision to channel my energy more into writing and expand my content and copywriting services. Then, at the end of last year, I had a very profound spiritual experience, which changed my life. I am writing a new memoir manuscript documenting the path the Universe has shown me. I don't know where it will lead me but my decision to focus on all things writing is manifested.
Therefore, I am closing down my interior design blog and have de-cluttered my interior design website Bettina Deda colour design, which from now on focuses on free tips and resources around downsizing and apartment living, the Downsize with Style podcast show with more than 70 episodes, the Downsize with Style online course and my book.
I would like to thank my 500+ blog subscribers for reading my posts and engaging with me. You will still receive my monthly newsletter with a curation of links and posts from the previous weeks. As colour and interiors will always be my passion, I will still write about stuff that I want to share with you, but I won't publish posts because I feel I need to meet my goal of posting twice a week.
All interior design posts published before May 2016 are archived on this site.
All other posts since May last year are published on my author platform where I will keep posting about creativity, writing, reading tips, art and everything else I feel I want to share from time to time.
Moving forward, please feel free to connect with me on social media. Join my Facebook group On Downsizing, follow me on Twitter or Instagram.
