March 7 2011.
That day will forever stay with me, as it was the day that I started PopGoesTheArts with the intention of simply covering some of the topics that mattered to me.
Celebrity gossip, music, movies, BRITNEY JEAN SPEARS.
You know, the essentials.
And here we are now over 6 years later, with over 3 million all time page views, avid readers, and new friends, I cannot begin to detail the joy I've endured over the years, writing all of these articles, sharing my opinions and feelings on today's pop culture, and knowing that I've reached so many people.
This was always supposed to be an outlet for me to express myself and share with you my passion for this crazy world of entertainment. And it's been just that and I can't thank all of you enough.
The kind words and support I've received over the years have been extraordinary and I couldn't possibly even begin to put into words what it means to me.
Now to get down to the hard part.
As per the title, you guys know where this is heading:
PopGoesTheArts is going on hiatus for the time being.
I'm in need of a recharge. A reboot.
Is this the end of PopGoesTheArts?
Absolutely not, and don't even think you're getting rid of me that easily.
It's simply time for me to possibly branch out, see if there are other opportunities and explore those. There has never been a moment when I've begun writing an article, and simply stopped myself to say "Why are you doing this?". That's never been the issue. What I'm discovering is that I need to focus on WHAT I need to do to maybe change up the pace.
Could that mean when the day comes for PGTA to return, maybe its sole mission will be to irritate you all with the new music I am listening to, introducing you to new artists? Maybe it will be to convince you to go to the movies more often and take in what's incredible at the box office.
There's the option of settling back in front of my TV and reclaiming
Oh who am I kidding......
No matter WHAT I end up writing about, Britney will find her way in there somehow.
Until that day comes, just know that I've loved all of our time together and there will come a day that I will return with my brand of snark that you'll all come to know and love (and loathe sometimes).
Nothing could truly keep me away forever, and as the title reads, this is simply goodbye for now.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU.
