Almost a year ago this month I re-launched my blog. It was everything I needed and more. Clean presentation, easy to navigate – at least in my opinion – and just a little piece of me on the web. I loved it. Honestly, I am still in love with it to this day. Which made the decision change the look and feel of my blog all the more difficult to make. But it had to done.
For a moment now i’ve been thinking about changing the design of my blog. There was a number of things that didn’t quite give me what I needed but truly, I was too attached to that look and feel that I couldn’t even bare the thought of changing everything all over again. PS: I don’t do very well with change.
Then I woke up this morning with this enormous sense of peace in my heart. like it felt right to want to change everything once again. I wasn’t worried about what could go wrong. Or all those what if’s that always seems to linger around every decision point. I was just ready! Then it hit me…
It's a new month, and with it comes new possibilities.
So I didn’t waste much time – purely because I was worried the feeling would go away and i’d be right back to not wanting to let go – I went ahead and started working on the new look and feel. Luckily I had a rough idea of what it is I wanted and that made it quite easy for me to just hit the ground running once I got started.
I didn’t want anything drastic or over the top. Seriously, when I say I am a simple girl, I really mean it. So I spent half of my day today locked in a boardroom, hiding from my new boss, and working on my blog. Took me much longer than expected but i’ll be the first one to admit it, it was all WORTH it.
I am happy to say that I have found a new look and feel that I truly like and I am truly happy with how it turned out.
Change is not always an easy thing but it’s a part of life. Today I chose to embrace change and make something magical out of my fears. A choice that didn’t come easy but one that I am very proud of.
Here’s to the new blog design and to EMBRACING change.
How do you like the new look?
