Published my goodbye letter on Concrete Loop today. Bittersweet but I have to put my energy into things that make me happy. Thanx for the support!
The full letter below for those interested.
When I first started Concrete Loop back in November of 2005, I didn’t know how far it would bring me. It started as a hobby with 5 dollars a couple days before my 21st birthday. During that time, I was struggling with self-esteem issues, depression and was having difficulties adapting to new surroundings. Little did I know that more than 8 years later it would help mold me into the strong confident woman I am today.
Concrete Loop not only brought some amazing people in my life, it has afforded me some one of a kind and life changing opportunities. I’ve opened a business, wrote a best selling blogging book, been invited to the White House, spoken on numerous prestigious panels, interviewed and met countless celebrities and most importantly was paid to do something I loved to do.
I always said I would continue to do this until it was no longer my passion and that day has come. I took awhile to think about it and without getting into too much detail, I have decided to close the site down indefinitely.
