An Ode to a New Beginning

I read recently that sometimes when you embrace what is new, you have to say goodbye to things that are safe.

Hence, it means leaving your comfort zone. And for years since I started blogging in 2009, my WordPress Blog has become my partner. I poured out my feelings on that little canvass for 7 long years. However, things change and so are my personal preferences. It took me more than two months to finally decide that I must give up my blog and start my own space and call it mine.

It is with deepest sorrow to say that I am completely leaving my WordPress account. I will not *yet* delete it but I might, someday.

BUT fret no more! There’s always a reason to celebrate!

This day officially marks my 2nd year in Dubai, UAE. *yaaaaay* I am very blessed enough to have given the opportunities that I never thought I’d have since I started my “social life” here.  It still is bewildering if I think about it. I have a good share of collaborations from different brands internationally and locally. I go to taste-sessions at the coolest cafes in Dubai. I get invited to movie premieres. I receive tons of books from publishing companies and authors. I meet people from the Internet across the world and eventually become friends in real-life! I am having the chance to live the life that I want for myself. And this… this feels real good.

And for my newest adventure, I OFFICIALLY WELCOME YOU TO MY NEW SPACE!

*dance dance dance*

Frankly, if you followed my WordPress blog, you’ll know that what I’d post here would be pretty much the same as before. I will still talk about books, food, lifestyle, personal stuff and other shenanigans.  BUT I guess it would be more…organized. AND I will be more active. That’s a vow. (and no one breaks a vow)

So, CHEERS to a new beginning! Cheers to a good life! And don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE! 😉

    Hi Abeer!!
    I love your new site! I have a blog too and mine is on Wix, like yours was on WordPress.. I have been meaning to find “my own space” too just like you did.. I was wondering which platform this site is built on or what service did you use to create it.. Would mean a lot to me if you shared! Great blog and good job! 🙌
    Oh and I love you Instagram! Much love! 💕
