Blog Makeover and Photography

29 March 2016

As you may have noticed my blog has had a huge makeover. My blog had been neglected for a long time and I wasn't enjoying writing posts, so I thought a little refresh would help me get back into it.

So back in January I bought my new blog design from the lovely Kotryna Bass, who has lots of great designs on her website and Etsy page. This is the second design I've bought from Kotryna and I absolutely love it, and she was super helpful in setting it up for me which was so great and kind of her!
I'd love to know how often you update or make tweaks to your blog design.

I finally feel happy with how my blog looks because it reflects me, which in turn motivates me even more to post new content as much as I can! The homepage of this new design is heavily based around photography, therefore, I've definitely set a challenge for myself because I am more of a confident writer than photographer. At times I've had a handful of photo-less drafts waiting to be published but taking those pictures has seemed such a chore. But I've been taking this challenge head on, and I'm beginning to enjoy planning photo ideas, finding props and taking pictures. I also have a super helpful friend who has been helping me with my photography and editing, and making gifs like the one above, which was definitely not me!

I'd love to know your thoughts on my new layout :)
