You might notice my new blog makeover! New year, new blog design right? This might be the case for a lot of bloggers but towards the end of the year I felt unmotivated, uninspired and couldn’t really see what direction I wanted my blog to go in. At the start of January I was scrolling down Twitter whilst feeling like a pig in a blanket after eating so much over Christmas and saw everyone talking about the move from Blogger to WordPress and getting a blog makeover. I found out that Pipdig had a discount on his Blogger to WordPress Migration and everyone seemed to be doing it. It never even crossed my mind before that I should move to WordPress but the more I looked into it, the more I found out that it would probably be better for the direction I want to go down.
I decided to just go with my initial feeling which was to do it even though I had no clue if I’d like it or if it was worth all the money. I also decided to have a brand new blog design too! I can honestly say moving to WordPress has changed everything and it’s so much better – if you’re reading this and always wanted to do it I’d really recommend it. My new design took a lot of perfecting as I’m quite a perfectionist and I wanted that feeling of being completely in love with it. It took lots of emails back and forth as I initially went with one that I didn’t get that ‘omg I love it feeling’ so automatically decided to go for another one. I then went for the one I have now and it was love at first sight.
I’ve introduced some new features such as categories where you can easily find what posts you want to read.. an example is beauty. I wanted it to be much more photo based as now that I finally own an Olympus Pen I want to up my photography game this year and you can shop my favourite beauty products and fashion items all in one place!
In terms of what this relaunch has done for me – it’s given me so much motivation for 2018 and I have so many exciting things planned which I cannot wait to launch. I’m forever grateful for all of your support and I know lots of you have been waiting to see my new design so it feels like I’ve been waiting forever to launch it. I hope you love it as much as I do!
