Hi everyone! It’s been over two months since I’ve posted anything. Honestly, I don’t have the time and I’m starting lose interest.
I go to school full time and I work full time. If I’m not at work, I’m at school, and vice versa. If I’m not at either of those locations, I’m asleep. I’ve also been dealing with a lot of sickness, so sometimes I’m in the hospital. Any small amount of time that I have off from everything, is jeopardized in some sort of fashion. Currently, I just don’t have the time to devote to this blog.
When I first moved my nail blog to Tumblr, I had such passion for nail art. I spent any time that I could making content and uploading it all to here for others to see. I was part of a community that truly cared about one another, and was supportive of one another. I’ve made such great friends through this network, and that’s something I’ll hold onto. Over the last 2.75 years I’ve been on here, I’ve noticed the change within the nail art community, and I’m not happy with it. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone was angry with me over this, but it is my opinion and something that I have felt for quite some time.
I make it sound like it was so long ago, but when I first started, everyone was supportive of one another. Those within the community would leave nice comments, send encouraging messages, and really worked together. Now, people are competing against one another. Who can get the most notes, who can take one person’s design and make it their own and “better”; some will go as far as to take someone else’s artwork and claim it as their own.
When the nail art tag started coming into play and works of art were featured, it was fun to see another person’s work being viewed by a much bigger crowd. You saw all different accounts and all different works of nail art across a large spectrum of genres. Now, every time I log on here (which is multiple times per week), I see the same group of nail artists’ designs featured on the nail art tag, they may just be rotated around a bit. I’m not saying I’m not happy for them, because it’s a great feeling to see your work featured! I’m just saying that it’s not so invigorating when you see the same accounts over and over again. While it’s been getting better recently, at one point in time I’d only see top contributors and editors.
With my ranting and rambling aside, I wouldn’t expect a whole of content on my blog for now. I have to keep my priorities in line, and at this time, this is not one of them.
Although I won’t be uploading much for now, I’ll still log on frequently. I like communicating with you all and responding to your messages. You can also follow me on Twitter and Instagram (@CindysNails), and you can even follow me on Pinterest (xcindyc).
Wishing everyone the best,
Had to cut this nail all the way back again. You’ll only be seeing three nails for today’s challenge, because my index and thumb are TRAGIC 😔😣😓 #nails #break #nailartproblems
