Saying goodbye to blogging

The day has finally come for me to delete this blog and move on to my next project. I started blogging in 2009 and I found the blogging community to be such a welcoming, engaging and uplifting space on the internet. There were also periods of (mainly unemployment) where focusing on writing for this space helped to calm whatever quarter life crisis I was going through.

Since moving to London however, I felt that I had outgrown this blog, the name, and the things I found myself posting about. That, coupled with full time work, socialising and starting other side projects meant that this blog kept being put to the side. Instead of leaving it here and occupying space, I have decided to delete my 'thatgirlsaadiya' blog.

Instead, I shall be over at where I have set up base as a freelance editor, proofreader and copywriter. I shall also occasionally blog what I've been up to from time to time or as and when needed.

In the meantime, I want to leave you with two blogs that I have loved following over the years. Both women have grown and developed into exceptionally talented creatives with content that never fails to amaze and inspire me.
Make sure to check out Sade From In My Sunday Best and Halima from Fashionicide.

As for me, I'll see you over at
