I’ve been staring at my computer screen for the last half hour trying to figure out exactly how to word this. I’ve been feeling unhappy with my blog for a while now. Well no, not unhappy, thats the wrong word… perhaps uneasy? I just have this feeling that I have outgrown this particular blog. I’ve been blogging on and off ever since I was 14, this blog was my 4th blog and the one I stuck with for the longest and indeed my most successful. Outcrowdfashion.com started almost 3 years ago (it was outcrowdfashion.wordpress.com back then but that’s one hellova mouthful!) It started at a time when I was seriously unhappy with my life and I used it as a distraction. My little escape from life.
I’m no longer unhappy and no longer want this blog to be an escape from my life, I want it to be about loving life and embracing life. Ugh that sounds so cheesy, right? I hope you know what I mean. I’ve been moving towards this new theme for a while, some of my older followers may have noticed that since the start of 2015 I’ve started writing more lifestyle posts, sharing my little adventures with you guys. These posts have been so well received which makes me so happy! However, the name of my blog is still outcrowdFASHION.com but I no longer want to write about just fashion, I don’t want to feel constricted by that name.
A lot of things are changing in my life at the moment, the biggest being that I’m starting another degree in September. So I figured since everything else is changing then why not change my blog as well? I didn’t want to scrap this blog and start from scratch. That would be crazy right?! I’ve worked so hard and I do still love this little blog and I’m still super proud of it. So think of this as a rebranding, a blog 2.0. In a few days if you try to access outcrowdfashion.com you will find a maintenance screen whilst I’m working my magic. Then on September 7th I will relaunch! Everything will be shiny and new. New name, new layout, exciting new content. Guys Im so excited about this, I seriously can’t wait!
I know that I’m going to lose some traffic and followers to start with but I hope that most of you will stick around. It may be a little confusing for a while as all my social media handles and email address will be changing but I will try my hardest to keep you all informed. I’ll be using the hashtag #TheOutCrowdRebrand so keep an eye out for updates
I hope this post makes sense and I haven’t rambled too much and bored you to tears. I just wanted to let you all know what I have planned rather than just disappearing and then randomly reappearing with a new blog. Let me know what you think of my plans to rebrand. Have you ever done anything similar with your blog? Have you any suggestions or tips? Let me know!
