As you have probably already guessed, by the title of this post, things are going to be changing a bit over here and there’s lots of exciting things coming up in the next few days and weeks. Originally, I thought that doing a post officially announcing the changes I’m making to my blog, would completely ruin the surprise and not make it so exciting for all of you to read and discover. However, since there’s been a few teething problems and there’s had to be a bit of an adjustment as to how my blog platform is run; I thought that you all deserved an explanation as to why it’s been so quite over here lately.
So, after much deliberation and decision making, I’ve decided to take the plunge and invest in an improved and more mature version of my blog. As I’ve now been blogging for over 4 years, I thought it was time to invest in what I’m doing and put a bit of money into it to help it grow and develop. I’m not talking about thousands, or even hundreds, but just the first bit of money that should hopefully push it forward and help it grow. Therefore, I’ve bought a new blog design which is not only super chic and stylish, but that also reflects a more professional look to my blog and enables me to have a lot more control over the look of it too. It’s a theme designed by the lovely people at pipdig, and will allow me to share so much more amazing content with you all and to link in all my social media platforms directly with my blog, so that you can always keep up with me in some way when I’m not posting. Why don’t you go and check out their website HERE, and try and guess which wordpress theme I’ve chosen?
In order to be able to have this design, I’ve had to commit to upgrading my wordpress account; enabling me to have so much more control over my blog and storage for all the content I want to upload. This has also enabled me to have my own domain name, and create a more professional look and feel to my blog. So, the web address of rachelspick.wordpress.com will all disappear, as after all the re-design and upgrading is complete, the new address for my blog will be rachelspick.co.uk. Hopefully, with this development, you will also be able to get over here much more easily and everything should load a lot quicker.
This re-design is going to give me so much more opportunities with this little blog, and will enable me to work and improve massively on the design and the content over here. I want to use this re-design to almost create a new chapter for my blogging journey, and concentrate on developing a better and more mature blog; with lot’s of regular content, full of fashion, style, lifestyle, blogging, and a bit of beauty, all thrown in. I hope you love it as much as I do, and I will keep you updated as to when it’s all ready to share…
