For those of you that have been following me since I first started then the picture above will be a real blast from the past! Unfortunately though, those memories will only be memories as of tomorrow. This will probably come as a massive shock but as of 9:00pm on Saturday the 26th of April, both my YouTube channel and my blog will be no longer accessible.
Since Christmas, my heart really hasn’t been into this and I thought it would pass but it hasn’t and the thought of removing the blog and my channel has been at the front of my mind for a very long time now. I also feel that this really isn’t what I’m suited to do. For those of you that know me personally, you will know that theatre has been my forte for as long as any of us can remember and that really is where my heart lies and where I want to make sure I focus my drive and my passion instead of on here. I will always be around Twitter and Instagram etc. like I always am so feel free to keep on following me on those platforms to know where life is taking me, but I’m afraid Shaunyland shall be no more as of tomorrow evening.
I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for bringing me sheer joy and happiness over the past year and a bit. Even though the actual blogging eventually became dull and uncomfortable for me, you guys have been amazingly supportive and have meant that I’ve learned a lot from Shaunyland and I now have new found life skills that I’ll be taking into my future with me. This blog has had almost 25,000 hits in it’s run and my YouTube channel has had almost 20,000 since it began with almost 350 subscribers. So thank you very much to all of you that have commented, liked, subscribed, read and watched because it has all meant ever so much to me. I will, however, continue to keep my theatre related blog so for those of you that are interested, you can find it here.
Shaunyland really has let my creativity, confidence and determination to make my dreams a reality grow since I started it and it’s been such a fantastic learning curve. Not only have I made some lovely friends along the way, but I’ve also managed to discover who I am, who I’m not and who I want to be in the future.
If you have any questions, please feel free to tweet me (@shaunycat) or comment on this post and I’ll be sure to answer them by the time the blog vanishes (or of course, afterwards if you send me a tweet).
Thank you very much for making the past year and a half so magical and memorable. I’ll be sure to remember my beauty blogging days for many years to come. Good luck in your futures and I love you all very much.
This is Shaun Nolan, signing out. X
