This is not goodbye

[photo above was one of our first skype calls!]

I became Blog Editor for SWL in August 2012. It is now the end of 2013 and this incredible organization has absolutely blown up – in the best possible way. It is touching the lives of thousands and SWL apparel is being worn all over the world. The word is well and truly spreading that we are all worthy of love. And thank goodness for that, because how true it is.

Simultaneously, my own life has changed a bit too. I’m now in a job that I love, working hard to develop myself and my career. Unfortunately this means I now have less time to focus on outside interests like blogging. I’m sad to say this has led me to make the difficult decision to step down as Blog Editor.

It didn’t come easily. I adore this community and selfishly wanted to hold on to the position for selfish reasons. But I no longer have the time or energy to put into the blog what it deserves.

I know Eryn has big and beautiful plans for this blog. It’s what she does. She is a dreamer, a visionary and a doer. She will continue to drive SWL forward (literally, next spring!) to spread this message far and wide. This woman is truly a hero and I am so thankful to have worked with her and learned from her. I will forever call her a friend.

I will always be an advocate for SWL and hope to remain connected to all the wonderful people I’ve met in the past 18 months. Thank you for reading and contributing! You have all helped to create an incredible place of conversation, acceptance and fun. The show must go on, and I very much plan to take part. Just in a lesser capacity.

This is not goodbye. Will you stick around too?

  1. Thank you, Micaela, for all you’ve done for SWL and for us. I don’t know that I’d be here without your help. Thank you.
