A Change Is Coming.....

Friday, 7 April 2017
They say Spring is the time for change, starting anew and letting go of things you no longer need or have outgrown. The same can be said for my blog. For almost 5 years I have used the domain name you see here and I've loved it. Allowed this space to be somewhere I can write and ramble on about anything and everything, not fitting into a niche but at the same time doing so. Thinking this space was enough, a fitting place to let my words sit and be read by anyone who cared enough to view my rambles. And it was. Until now. 

For a while I've been thinking about a change, not only of layout and theme; but also a name change. I always thought this was too difficult to do, my blog name being in so many places over the internet that it would be almost impossible to change. That I don't have the technical abilities to implement the change nor be enough of an influencer to warrant the change. But seeing so many of my friends change and be successful prompted me to look into changing my domain name, the physical name of my blog, the place where I've been writing for half a decade. To make this blog more me. 

And so to this end, I have bought a new domain: And I want this new blog to be a place where I no longer feel the stress of having to write a product review, worry about not posting for two weeks at a time, or even who is reading said posts! I am going to implement a no schedule schedule, severely limit the number of product reviews I do, if any at all and I want to talk about the things that inspire me, the people, the places, my friend's posts. 

I am looking at purchasing a new template, something which better represents this new direction I am turning in. I want it to be a more visual space, where my photos are at the forefront of what I do. To be able to give my readers the opportunity to pick and choose which post they go to. 

I'm not going to worry about numbers anymore. Statistics and readership isn't why I started blogging. I started because I absolutely love writing about things I love. I would like to return to that. I'll still be accepting guest posts as they have helped me so much recently so it would be a shame to let them go completely. I'm also not saying no to sponsored posts either. They will just be less and instead replaced by the posts I've always wanted to write but always thought they wouldn't be a good fit; even though I should be able to write about anything because it is my blog after all! I think I just felt overwhelmed with all the review posts I had to do and so thought they should take presidence over anything!

So this Spring I am ready to come out of this fog, ready for a new challenge. Ready to face the blogging world with a new face. Saying goodbye can be hard but coming out the other side, fresher, newer and with a better feeling whenever I log on? So worth it. 

So I hope you will come with me on this new journey and enjoy the new look blog. I am excited to choose my layout and implement it. Thanks for sticking with me through this change, I hope you'll let me know what you think. I appreciate every view, comment and share. I would like my new blog to be a place where I share my friend's content as well as my own. Sharing the love is so important. 

Thanks for reading. Have a lovely day. 

Love, Sarah
