blog relaunch

Somehow I’ve managed to relaunch early, but in return have only picked up my colouring book once in the past 2 weeks.

Welcome back!

Realised that I haven’t posted since last year. Sorry, it’s been almost 2 months at first, I decided I would just take a break between Christmas and New Year. Then I got thinking about my blog and realised that as I was coming into my third year of blogging, and in my eyes hadn’t felt like my blog had progressed as I would have like it to have done in the past year, decided it was time for a major over hall.

I’ve done a lot of theme changes over the past year but felt like this time I needed more than just a theme change. So set to work and did an over hall on ever aspect of my blog. I don’t think you would have even noticed, but all my tags and categories were all set up wrong and I even had posts that I didn’t think fitted in with my blog style 66 posts to be exact. Haven’t deleted them permanently, just put them back into draft mode as I’ll still want to read them and look back at them from time to time.

Did change my theme twice late last year, but still felt like it was missing something. So decided to change it yet again, but for the first time in forever went with a different kind of theme. Typically I go with a Genesis,

theme. Which are still excellent themes, but felt like it was time to break the bubble and try something new.

Saw a few blogs that I’d been reading using pipedig themes so decided to check them out and give them a try to have to say it was the best decision I’ve ever made. Perfect for people with excellent coding skills or Zero coding skills like my Mum.

(Also, the box at top on the left is meant to have 4 small pic’s linking to posts, but the other three won’t show until I publish more posts, so it’s not broke)

I also spent last year doing a bunch of different challenges and setting myself posting goals. Which all failed miserably, as I never pre-planned anything so as I soon as I got busy or I had a day where I got stressed and over it I would just give up and not blog for like a week or 2.

So instead of putting so much pressure on myself, with work, Blogging and Uni, I’ve decided I’m going to make a significant effort to pre-write more posts so that I have posts going out on a regular basis. I told myself I wasn’t going to have a schedule again, but I’ve decided to keep it easier for me and to improve my returning visitors % I’m going to be posting 2 days a week Wednesday and Sunday.

So would love it if you could follow along with my new and improved regular posting blog.

I’ve also been staring at my blog for what feels like forever, so please let me know in the comments if you see anything that doesn’t look quite right or is defective so that I can fix it.

ps: don’t forget to check back Sunday and Wednesday for more new posts.
