Years of work, down the drain. Ugh.

So... I'm still paying for this website URL, www.bettiesnbrimstone.com... but now that Photobucket is about to break ALL of my photos (that is, the ones that aren't already broken...) - my website is going to render itself pretty much totally useless, unless I go back and manually fix every single image link. Ain't nobody got time for that.

In the meantime, feel free to try a variety of Chrome extensions that "fix" images (at least until Photobucket finds a way to re-block them) like this one: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-hotlink-fix/kegnjbncdcliihbemealioapbifiaedg?hl=en
so that you can still view content for the time being. But the likelihood is that I won't be returning here.

I'm just keeping this website for sentimental reasons. I'm sure one day I'll just delete it completely, but, yeah, whatever.

Where to find me

The Hell Razor etsy shop. 

I wanted to let you all know where you can find me in my absence. I've been slowly changing my "main" website on all of my social media profiles to www.hellrazorart.com, which will take you to my etsy shop.

I'm a fairly regular poster on Instagram (@hellrazor), and I have a twitter account (@hellrazorart) although I forget about it a lot.

One place that I do frequent quite regularly is Pinterest. So you can follow/repin/send me cool stuff over there.

Sorry it's been so quiet. Right now I have no plans to return. So I thought I'd send you to my other social media hangouts if you cared to join me. Thanks!

Rock On,
Jen @ Hell Razor

Indefinite Hiatus

Monster Skirt
shirt - thrifted / shoes - Hot Chocolate Designs / belt - Pinup Girl Clothing / skirt - Vintage Galeria via etsy

Well, this is going to be kind of a weird post. These are the last OOTD photos I took with the intention of posting them to the blog. So I figured I might as well go with it. But this post isn't really about what I'm wearing.

It's about taking a break.

I don't know if/when I'll be back here. Maybe I'll feel compelled to randomly post here. Maybe I'll never return. I don't know. I won't delete Betties N Brimstone; there are a lot of good posts on here... I have the first two years of Iggy's life documented here... but I think that I'm done for now.

I posted about Vintage Galeria before here

I've had this blog since 2010. Longer than a lot of other blogs I've read. I'm sad to let it go, but I told myself that if I hated it, I can always come back. But right now it's more of a chore than something I like to do. I'm not getting out of it what I'd hoped.

I feel like I'm doing a LOT of things right now "just ok." If I stop spinning some of my wheels, maybe I can do fewer things "better."

I'm not disappearing completely... although I am seriously considering deleting my Facebook profile altogether. Related but separate. Right now my plans are to just stay connected via Instagram (@hellrazor) and Pinterest, and I'll keep the Hell Razor etsy shop open, although I add new items fairly infrequently because I don't make many sales. Not always worth the effort I put into it.

Ha - it kinda sucks because I just made all new stickers for the Hell Razor shop that also have the BnB logo and address on them. Figures, right?

I figured that if I miss doing OOTD posts, I can always just put them on IG. I can share cool stuff that I find and buy there, too.

In case you're theorizing about why I'm going, it's nothing exciting. My family is all intact - Iggy, Todd, and I are doing just fine. And everyone is healthy. I kind of started mulling over my mental motivations for stopping the blog here, and I guess after that I really tried, I pushed to make the blog more successful, framing it as a way to help others find their own style via this blog, rather than a haphazard scatter-brained collection of OOTDs, DIYs, recipes, travel/field trip posts, and general "journal-y" posts lumped together as a "lifestyle" blog.

But I can't do it right now.

I do feel bad for anyone who does read this (the handful of you, lol!) and I felt the need to explain my absence and not just disappear suddenly without warning. Sorry guys.

Rock On,
Jen @ Hell Razor
