It's been fun, folks...


...but it's time to say goodbye to our regular rendezvous here. It's not you, it's me.

I'll still be all over the Internets chirping away and updating The New Professional Facebook page, and you know how to reach me if you need me. You may even see semi-regular outfit pics on Twitter and Facebook (no promises). I'll also be posting every so often on my personal website, though in a much less focused and disciplined form than I've been doing here. I've truly enjoyed getting to know you, and am definitely still available to answer any of your questions and to dispense free advice on anything (though I must warn, my expertise is rather limited). I certainly haven't run out of words.

I'm still in shock that anyone reads this blog. Some of you may even have been around since the beginning. I love each and every one of you crazies. Thanks for making this the most popular hobby I've ever had.

  2. I'll miss you! But I know how you feel. Sometimes you just need to stop if it's no longer fun, or if your priorities change.

    I'll always be online to chat with! :)

  4. What?
    I'm guessing a bit of burn out? Well I'm glad you're still online, and maybe a bit of less focus and more fun is in order.

    And new career? I hope it's something fancy.

  5. What?!?! Say it ain't so! Well, I'm happy that I'll still see you on FB and Twitter... take care Angeline, I'm sure there are very good reasons for you taking a step back. Sometimes you have to look out for #1, even if that means missing your posts here!

  25. I knew this was coming. Actually when Dec 1 hit, I was surprised you were still around. I was just waiting. I will miss your updates. I still plan to talk to you on twitter, talk on email, and read your other blog. I've been reading it but usually from my phone or iPad so don't think I've really been commenting.
