Hi. This is Bex writing. Some of you might remember me being April’s partner in crime in the blogosphere before I quit blogging. If you don’t know who I am, it’s okay too.
This is one of the hardest posts I’ve ever had to write. But I’m here to share with you that April sadly passed away December 18th, 2016.
April’s been one of my closest friends since I started blogging in 2011. We actually met thanks to our blogs, at an online book blog conference, where we connected quickly and became best friends.
I am so grateful to have met April. Online or not, she was one of the most important people in my life. We talked for hours every single day. We could be serious as well as anything but serious. We had the best of times together. She knew me in ways no one else did. It is impossible to describe how much she’s meant to me over these past few years. She still means the world to me. She was such a wonderful person; understanding and caring, as well as full of joy and positivity. I have so many crazy and hilarious memories with this lady. It is unreal to me that there won’t be any more… And it’s breaking my heart.
Since I know how much she cared about this blog, I want to save it for her. Even if I can’t blog myself right now and keep it active, I want to save it; save all of her work and love that went into this blog, so that it can remain in her memory. Since this is a paid for hosting, I will therefore be moving it to a free domain. You will still be able to reach it at http://www.myshelfconfessions.com/ until July next year, as the domain name is paid for until then. After that, it will be available at https://myshelfconfessions.wordpress.com/.
I guess it’s time for me to say goodbye now. I know that you’re not in pain anymore and I hope that we’ll meet again one day. My partner in crime is gone, but you will always be with me in heart and thought. You’ve been strong and now it’s my turn to be, having to live without you. At least I still have that Be Strong playlist on Spotify, the one you created years ago, to help me.
Rest in peace, April. I love you, now and forever.
