So I just did me some talking to the sun


Wow, where should I begin, its been a while or should I say it has been too long. I remembered when i started my blog 3 years ago, I write all the time. TragicFairyTales has been best my friend, my personal journal and once a place where I am free to write all my emotions and the ups and downs of life


Then when it started to attract attention and new readers,I got lost of my true identity, I started to hold back what I wanted to say in fear of offending readers and in fear that people might not like what I write. My friends asked why did I abandoned my blog at its peak when it started to gain massive followers. I started with less than 10 followers in 2009 and suddenly by making a few blog friends from all over the world, the followers shoot up to 200++ within three months then I quit. 


Today I finally have the answer, it's because I got too carried away by trying to make the blog famous.
I guess i cared too much about how many new followers I will gain or how many comments I might receive in a single post that I finally got so sick of it and decided to run away a hide and neglect something which I once love so much which is to write from heart.

But now I am back for good, to be honest  with my thoughts, to stop writing in contradictions and to continue being a genuine and honest writer.  I couldn't be more grateful for all the friends I have made, none has been forgotten and especially those who stayed through out the days when the blog has went on hiatus.
Cheers to Tragic Fairy Tales and all its awesome readers ♥

It's been a while since you posted in your blog. And I am very happy to know that you decided to continue writing. As you have mention in your post that you are cautious in writing here. You know what? It doesn't really matter. I followed you because you are true and as I read through all your post I started to fall in love with your blog. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and an advance Happy New Year. Just be true and others will love you. =)

I must say I have never followed you, simply because this is my first time here, but the title of your blog sounds incredibly beautiful and vulnerable, so honesty is kind of expected. Wish you all the best!
