I feel like I need to tell you why I haven’t been posting for a while, and why my posts seem so random.
I began to lose focus of my blog. After my 20th birthday, I had no motivation to continue posting. I thought that my personal project was over and five years from now I’ll go back and see what I was up to as a teenager. Now, however, I feel like I need to continue. I’ve had multiple people question why I stopped blogging and if I was ever going to start again and that made me realize something. I have the potential to make a difference in the world, and this blog can help me achieve it.
Lately, and for the past summer, I have been struggling with an extreme case of writer’s block. But I know now that I am just going to have to write through it and hope for the best.
There will be quite a few changes to Growing into Twenty, but the name is not one of them (I already paid for the domain name for the year lol). I am going to add a little more variety to my blog, while also taking away some of the topics that just aren’t important to me anymore. Here’s an outline of what to look forward to:
Living with Lexi: This will be similar to what I currently post – hair and makeup tutorials, cooking, writing samples, look books, and unboxings.
Ask Lexi: I will answer questions and give advice on topics such as relationships (platonic and romantic) to college to the best way to style clothes. This category is up to what you all want.
Lexi Speaks: In this category I will write about my views on current events and the Black community.
I will be posting every Friday from now on, so you know exactly when to check back in on Growing into Twenty.
Starting next week, Growing into Twenty: Reloaded launches. (:
I hope you can come along for the ride.
P.S. If you have any suggestions, feel free to comment them or shoot me an email! (:
