Despite the announcement of a return from my hiatus, after careful thought, I have decided to discontinue The Cupcake Critic blog.
My decision to discontinue the blog after an amazing and rewarding two years has been a hard one to make and derived after many sleepless nights. Beginning this Fall I will be teaching in Prince George's County Public Schools through Teach for America. Teaching is a passion that I have held for some time and I am excited about this opportunity. However to fully focus on the bright pupils of PGPS, I have to be singular in mind and focus.
My blog has been a major part of my life and it's difficult to imagine it no longer being here. I have delighted in creating, writing, and managing the blog since its inception; watching it grow. Further to be recognized at the Black Street Awards, along with numerous other opportunities, are things that I could not have imagined when I began this journey.
More than anything I will miss the love, support, and camaraderie of my fellow Cupcake Lovers. I have thoroughly enjoyed tweeting, reading, liking, and corresponding with each of you. Therefore my decision has come with teary-eyes but I thank you for your passionate and unyielding support.
