There has not been any new blog post for seven long months. Due to personal circumstances, I was no longer able to regularly update the blog. Today, I had the courage to take up the heavy task of starting again, and decided to start afresh.
I thought that I wanted to stop writing here completely and move on to create a new blog. My interests and mentality has changed over time, and I felt that this blog no longer reflected myself anymore. Even the blog name will become irrelevant; I will turn 20 soon.
However, I thought to myself, “If I create a new blog, I have to start everything from scratch. Find readers, promote it, design it, yadda yadda yadda.” I don’t want to lose what is left of my readership completely by abandoning this blog.
With this, I am announcing the rebranding and renovation of I Am A Teenage Reporter to IATR &BEYOND: a site which I hope will bring fresh perspectives and mature insights into life, travel, food, university and so on. I am aiming for a more serious writing style as well.
I do not wish to reveal all what I have in mind, but over the next few weeks the site will undergo major restructuring and updates on pages and posts to reflect my current life in university. My priority now is my own life outside of the blog, but I hope to complete the renovation process by the end of October, InshaAllah.
I hope that you will be supportive of this endeavour and I thank you all for your patronage.
