goodbye sparks of ara, welcome avery emerson blog

i’ve tried writing this post many times, it’s never come out just the way i wanted it to. if you’re seeing this pop up in your reader or email, there’s a good chance you were following my previous blog, sparks of ara. yup, maybe that will ring a bell. it was a very cringy, very inconsistent blog i’ve had since about october 2016, five years now. i was just 10 years old when i made it, not knowing what i was getting myself into.

after a few years, i felt stuck with the blog. i kept posting from time to time, but i didn’t have the passion for blogging like i once did. after some thought, i knew i couldn’t let go of the blog i’d loved for so long. so, i decided to change the name, blog design, pretty much everything about the blog without getting rid of the old posts or followers. it’s allowed me a fresh start, to be myself instead of forcing myself into the 10 year old girl who had started this blog.

so, i’d love to welcome you to my new blog, avery emerson.

i’ll be posting once or twice a week. i can’t say for sure what i’ll be posting, but most likely it’ll be within lifestyle, productivity, mental health, and my life. i want to be more open and honest with my readers, updating on my life from time to time if that’s something you’d like to see.

i’m likely going to be experimenting with the blog design in the following weeks, but i’m excited to see where this blog heads, and i’ve finally upgraded to a .com site! i’m so grateful to have the opportunity to do this as this had been a dream of mine since i started blogging.

check out the ‘about’ or ‘home’ page to learn a little bit more about me and the updated blog.

oh, i forgot to mention- i’ve made an instagram for the blog! i’ll be updating when new posts come out, some of my photography, as well as a little behind the scenes of running a blog. click here to check it out, or search @averyemersonblog on instagram.

enough about me- i’d love to hear about how you’ve been! drop a comment down below so we can catch up. i haven’t been super active these past months and have missed a lot within the blogosphere. i can’t wait to catch up with you all.

thank you so much for reading, your support means so much to me!

Hello and welcome (back) to Sparks of Ara! How have y’all been doing? I just got a job (literally yesterday haha) so I’m excited for that! And I changed the blog design a bit, if you’re on the reader be sure to check out the website to see! Anyways, I’ll be sharing some of my current favorite songs that I’ve been listening to on repeat the past few weeks! There’s quite a mix of different genres and stuff so hopefully you enjoy them! I’ll also mark the songs with explicit lyrics with an asterisk (*) if anyone doesn’t want to listen to them or wants to find an alternative. (I know spotify does that with some songs!)

also- I’m still experimenting with the graphic design stuff, so sorry if it doesn’t look amazing… sorry for any typos too haha…

…and pretty much anything from Evermore or Folklore by Taylor Swift, but I didn’t want to just repeatedly list Taylor Swift, so I’ll just leave it at that haha.

That ended up much longer than I thought it would be, so I hope you enjoyed if you made it this far! As you can probably tell I have quite a mix of music taste, haha! Do you listen to any of these songs? What are your favorite songs? I’ll be sure to check them out!

Here’s my Spotify if anyone wants to check it out (I’ll also follow back haha): https://open.spotify.com/user/mynameisbel
