It’s not goodbye, @joycesayshelloagain 👋🏻

Is Dayre nearing its demise soon?


Please don’t do this to me. I have yet to start backing up my posts. The web browser version seems to be still down at the moment. Even the app seems finnicky. I don’t think I’ll be updating this space until I have finished backing up all my old posts.

The more I update, the more time I need to spend to archive them. Sigh.

5 years worth of memories to be archived… 😔

Some of you were asking me how I back up my posts on my IG DMs.

It’s actually quite simple (BUT SO TEDIOUS OMG 💀):

Go to your own username) > Click on individual posts > Click on “File” > Click on “Print…” > Click on “Open PDF in Preview” > Click on “File” (for the PDF version that pops up) > Click on “Export as PDF…” > Save PDF post wherever you want!


I just checked and I post an average of 13-15 times per month, for the past 5 years.

So I need to repeat above steps for 900 times.


Happy backing up to me.

It feels like some kinda apocalypse. 😩


Thank you all for following me through my daily thoughts, TTR milestones, how I met ZL, and everything else I chose to share here on Dayre.

I was telling ZL earlier today that I will be sad to see the memories on Dayre go, but he comforted me by saying “It’s okay, we’ll have more memories ahead of us.”

Things (and life) aren’t gonna be the same anymore without Dayre, but then again, nothing in life is ever truly permanent.

I’ve been enjoying microblogging so much that I don’t think I can ever go back to the old way of blogging on a proper blog though.

So I did the next best thing and created a new and separate IG account where you can still follow me for updates on life and TTR collection previews just like on Dayre.

Follow me over at @joycesayshelloagain on Instagram 🙌🏻

Full credits go to @jazreeltan for coming up with such a hilarious name for me hahahaha and for being my first follower!! 😂😂😂

It is a little ridiculous that I now have three IG accounts under my name. One main account, one private account and one “Dayre” account.

Oh actually 4. I also have an account for my shop.joycesayshello. 😂

But I guess it helps to organise my life better…?

And at least Instagram will always be there, 💋

I know there’s another microblogging app BUT I don’t think I can handle it if it closes down again. And I’m unfortunately not a fan of the interface!! ;(

So, IG it is.

And also, my hashtags of #/JoyceisEntertained and #/shitZLsays will be able to continue on IG so that’s a bonus for me!

Trying to get into the groove of things. It’s familiar and unfamiliar at the same time because I’m usually not as “chatty” on my main IG account.

I guess one additional good thing about IG is that I can also do previews on IG stories..? 🤔

Met @yeomabel at the TTR store and I told her that Dayre’s closure feels like a break up. 😂

Yes, it’s heartbreaking. Suddenly, you lose an avenue which you used to confide in daily. But there’s no happiness in forcing someone who doesn’t love you anymore to stay on.

There’s no heart in it anymore.

You get angry, you get sad. But eventually, the best thing to do is to pick up the pieces and move on.


Everyone’s moving to different platforms and it’s gonna be so tough following everyone from everywhere.


It’s almost 2am and ZL is fast asleep, beside me.

I’ve been scrolling through Dayre for the past few hours and realised that it has been a huge source of comfort all those sleepless nights I’ve had.

Goodbye is the hardest word.

@sgbudgetbabe shared this and I thought it might be worth a shot..?

At least now you can act on something instead of leaving futile comments on @blog asking them to reconsider the shut down.


And if it doesn’t work, at least we tried.

On Mothership today. Gonna get down to reading it!

Guess no petition will be able to save Dayre. 🙍🏻‍♀️

Just updated instastories on @joycesayshelloagain with this article. Instablogging seems okay, for now. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Slowly backing up my old entries so that I don’t lose all my memories and chanced upon my post on 1 Aug, where I shared about why I Dayre – @joycesayshello:010817.


I know Dayre is gonna have a download posts function but god knows how reliable it’s gonna be given the capabilities of a management who doesn’t even seem to be putting any heart in this app. So I’m still going to play it safe and do things manually as far as possible.

Going through my Dayre archive is actually pretty fun.

So many moments which I don’t even remember anymore!
