In a post on her Celebrity MySpace page, Conrad says watching Monday's finale was "bittersweet."
"A part of me is sad to say goodbye to something that has been such a prominent part of my life, but I know that it was time and I am very happy with my decision," she says. "While putting my personal relationships and struggles on television wasn't always easy, the support I received from made such a difference."
Conrad also thanks her fans for watching and for helping her "accomplish so many aspirations." As for those new projects, which may include her first novel, Conrad says, "I will keep you all updated."
And what does she know about the upcoming season of The Hills, which now stars her Laguna Beach rival Kristin Cavallari?
Says LC: "From what I've heard the next season will not disappoint."
