The Post I Didn't Want To Write.

Okay, so we all probably realize that my name's not Maeve. Starchild. I mean, really? But, that's what I came up with, so whatever. Moving on.
Yeah, I am kind of enjoying the "quiet life" of being a small blogger, but I don't guess that's going to last, so let's just go ahead and get this over with. My name's Niki, (or Nicole), and I used to run Magic Maid. The domain expired during my period of time offline, and I didn't get to renew it. By the time I could, it had already been snagged by one of those "if you pay us a billion dollars we'll let you have the name back" places (sense the exaggeration there?) and I figured, okay, this must be for the best. Everything happens for a reason, right?
I've got my personal reasons for deleting my facebook. Well, it's just inactive, it's not deleted. I don't feel the need to divulge those to the general public, but if you're a friend of mine and you want to know, I'll tell you - if you email me. I'll just say, it's personal, and it was for my own personal security. I just felt safer.
As to why I chose to stay...out of the public eye?
I did say I'm enjoying being a small blogger. There's just not as much pressure, I post what the hell I want to, I don't have to feel like I've GOT to post these collections now. It became....overwhelming. Not as much fun.
Plus, let's just go ahead and say it. There was some drama. I hated the drama. I still hate the drama. I don't want to hear the whining, the moaning, the bitching that comes along with it. I just want to have fun with this. I want to chat with people, I want to make friends, I don't want to take sides or feel bad about a DAMNED THING. I just want to BE.
But, I still wanted to blog. So I thought I'd try this route. Well, I guess it's just not to be, so I might as well just get this out in the open.
I've got to tell you, if you come on here expecting to start drama, you can hit the fucking door, because I'm done with all that. Sorry to be harsh, but that's the way it is. If you can express your concern in a civilized manner, without pointing fingers or being nasty, I'd be glad to accept that.
Comments on this post WILL be moderated. If you would rather just email me, you have that option, it's on my contact page.
I'm not going back to being Magic Maid again. But, I hope to evolve from all of this. I'd like to think I learned something. There are some really NICE people out there, who do give a damn. And they're nice to new bloggers, too, which I totes appreciate. Because, I am new again. Even if I did do this for what, three something years?

  1. Girlll, i think anyone can understand everything you just said!! (and if not... too bad. lol) Sometimes people forget that this is just the internet, and it can make things really unpleasant for people, especially if there is already any trouble going on for them in real life, like you mentioned. I think i can speak for a lot of people when i say I'm happy you're around again and happy that you're doing this YOUR way. :)

  4. Oh my so dear. :) When I first started to follow Nightly Nails, I thought "Fuck, her nails and fingers look like Nicole's. Crazy how her hands feel similar to me". I had the intuition but refused to develop it because you know, I'm not crazy enough to even think to investigate about a new blog I find cool. That's not my business nor my bother.

    I can relate to everything you say. When blogging becomes a little bit more weight in the burden you carry, then it's better to escape. I hope you'll enjoy being a small blog again. It feels great to be free and unobliged. I know I do enjoy this! =)

    I feel silly and I'm smiling as I type. I'm just... happy to know you're still up there somewhere. Hopefully better and safe. I wish you knew how you've been on my mind.

  9. I didn't know you before, although I had heard about your blog (I only started blogging in january) but I hope you have fun with this blog & enjoy it. I know that I get sucked into the drama too, although I do it willingly sometimes, but I understand what a toll it can take. I'm glad I found your blog though & I love it :)
