Making Some Changes


Things have been busy around here, what with the last minute Christmas projects, entertaining family and friends, and increased responsibilities at work. That’s not the main reason I have been neglecting my blog though, at least not directly.

I have been thinking a lot about what I want to do with this blog, and I decided to change the name and be a bit more focused about what I post here. I spent the last 2 or 3 weeks thinking about how I wanted to do this, and whether I should change the domain, use a different blogging tool, keep the posts I have here or start from scratch and everything else that comes with a new blog focus. I spent so much time thinking about it, I wasn’t posting anything and I began to fear that I would spend the next two months just thinking and not post anything ever. So, I decided I need to dive right into posting again and start making changes gradually.

You may have noticed I started by changing the name of the blog to Making a Life. Anyone who has been here probably knows I am somewhat obsessed with making things, so it seemed like the perfect choice. I am planning on changing the categories a bit, changing the theme,  and maybe even changing the domain name. I don’t know, I haven’t figured it all out yet, 😉 .

Have any of you done a big blog change like this? How did you make the transition?

  1. I completely understand where you are coming from – sometime I get caught up in thinking about “reinventing” by site, but then I’m never sure what do keep the same / change etc that it carries on as it is! The biggest tip I have picked up from folk is just to write when you are in a “writing frame of mind” and from the heart. Love the title. x

  2. Yes, that is exactly it, Liz! I wanted something more unifying than just “A little bit of everything” although it still will be all over the place, I think. Making a life is big enough to fit a lot of topics but still feel cohesive, I think. Thanks for the compliment@
