Dear House Cats-

Today, I would like to announce changes at KittyBradshaw.com. If you are reading this, you are on the actual site and have noticed the theme change.  As most of you know, I have been doing quite a bit of traveling in the last few months. Through my travels, I have gained great perspective, and found new focus both professionally and personally. With that being said I have decided not to return to New York.

New York has been a great training ground for me. I have grown so much over the last six years, and am walking away knowing that not only did I survive (barely), I did it my way. For the most part I lived as a professional blogger, complete with my very own apartment with no roommates, and a walk in shoe closet. Those are proud accomplishments for someone living in the most expensive city in the country. Of course for every accomplishment, there were ten setbacks. I started to become hardened,  and unaffected. I spent less time looking at the sky, and more time trying to figure out what spot on the podium to stand on in order to land in front of the subway door (New York-ism).

One day during a snowstorm last winter, I was looking out the window and it was grey. One of the Los Angeles bloggers reached out to me and told me about life in Hawaii, and that was the spark that ignited change. I realized in that moment that I no longer had anything to prove in New York, and the universe was telling me it was time to move forward. I left without saying goodbye. I left as quietly as I came in with a suitcase, 200 pairs of shows, and a plane ticket. I gave away all of my furniture, and cried silently on the way to the airport. For the time being, I am homeless, loll. No, not really, but I am bouncing around while I figure out where I want to settle.

 

New York is the great love of my life… but it was consuming me. I had to get away.

 

My professional life has also taken a sharp turn. Let me start by saying that I am a blogger through and through. While some are ashamed to claim the term “Blogger”, I am extremely proud to be one. Blogging has taken me places I would have never been able to go on my own by eliminating the entry level/intern process, and making me the head of my own online publication. I was forced to learn quickly, and cross paths with people who shared their knowledge and wisdom. I have been granted more access than someone who went at it the traditional route.   Blogging will always be a vehicle I use to take me to great heights.

One thing I want everyone to understand is that I am a writer first. I dream of one day becoming a published author. I want to have articles in magazines, newspapers, and a few books under my belt. With that being said, I want to push towards strengthening my craft, and writing for other sites and publications. My goal is to fuse the roles of blogger and journalist to become a Media Juggernaut that can transition seamlessly between social, knowledge, and creative.

In the last few months I have changed drastically. I no longer see things the same way, my taste buds have changed, and a major load has been lifted. Over the last few weeks, I thought long and hard about a new slogan. One of my favorite poems is, “The Rose That Grew from Concrete” by Tupac Shakur. I decided to pose a question instead of making a statement. My personal blog will revert back to its roots, and become more personal as oppose to technical. More 1st person perspective, while my articles submitted to other publications/sites will be more technical in nature. My new slogan is, “Did you hear about the rose that grew from concrete”. My blog is a follow up to what happens after your life implodes. The answer is you see things differently, and move differently.   That is the voice of the new KittyBradshaw.com.

 

I love you House Cats! Thank You for your continued love and support.

    Hey girl! Super proud of you for just going for it. Too many people live life so seriously and not in the moment. I understand that some don’t have a choice but you are truly blessed to be able to move forth as such.

    I wish you the best and I took way from this post so much but one thing that I am changing is I no longer am going to be ashamed to be a blogger neither. Thanks for the encouragement without even knowing it.

    Best,

    Krystel

    The only constant is change. In all my years on this planet (and I have been here quite a few) that is the one zen proverb, I know to be true. We must all grow and bloom to benefit from the sunshine. Good luck on your new journey. I am sure that you will be just as successful as you have always been.

    Congratulations Kitty. Articles like this are the ones I bookmark because on days when I think I can’t or I just need to reflect and shift perspective I can read this and be encouraged. It’s funny where life takes us, but it’s awe inspiring where God can take us. Continue to walk in faith and purpose. I’ll be purchasing your book when you release it!

    Wow Kitty! Congratulations on this amazing opportunity to start fresh and create exactly the life you want.
    You show greatly courage to leave the comforts of what you have and what you know to follow your dreams and find fulfilment without knowing exactly what steps come next.
    I look forward to following you on this next great adventure and wish you all the happiness, success, and fulfilment you deserve.
