After seven years, entertainment blogger Necole Bitchie decided it was time to move on. In a essay titled, “It’s Time For Me To Move On,” the site’s founder announced that she was shutting down the site.
This is probably the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do, and I will cry after I write this. I am very saddened to announce that today is my last day as a ‘celebrity gossip blogger.’ It’s also my last day running the site as you know it,.
Necole went on to talk about where her true passion lies.
Despite all of those things, I continued to notice that I was experiencing more fulfillment and success from women coming to me on the street and saying, ‘Your story inspires me so much!!’ than I did the, ‘You got all the tea, I love your celebrity blog!!!’ I was getting more fulfillment out of speaking engagements, panels and inspirational interviews than I was flying to a luxurious location, given freebies and standing next to someone famous. I began measuring my success not by the amount of people who read my blog, or the money I made, but by the number of people I was able to touch, motivate and inspire.
I celebrate Necole Kane ( famously known as Necole Bitchie), having the courage to move on can sometimes be difficult but as I like to say sometimes it’s necessary! I’ve been there!
Because I embraced my strengths, I was able to be true to myself. I found the courage to follow through with my decision to ‘move on’, In believing in myself, making the hard decisions, and taking that leap of faith, I sprouted my wings and flew. My life transformed before my eyes. I started a new life where I found my soul mate. A year later, God favored me so that I am now living my dreams!
Sometimes, the answer is to follow your instincts when they tell you to make the difficult decision, even if it means your world will be turned upside down for a little bit. No matter what, embrace your strengths, stay true to yourself, and take that leap of faith…and soar my sister.
