FALLING OUT OF LOVE WITH BLOGGING

Its not you its me,  It’s been a long while since I have been in these neck of the woods and you may have noticed my blog has been a little quiet recently.  You may ask what happened well it’s quite simple really.  I started this blog back in eek early 2013 and I was clear, focused and knew what I wanted to do on this little space on the internet, but earlier this year I simply lost my blogging mojo.  With life taking over and simply getting a bit busier I found I did not have the time : I changed jobs, I had renovations going on in my house and several holidays & trips planned which were taking all my time up.   I simply could not keep up and something had to give, alongside with the fact I was no longer happy with the direction my blog was going.  I decided to take a hiatus away from social media and some time away from the blogging scene to think about what I wanted my blog to look like.

I stood back and looked at what I liked and disliked about my blog what was actually frustrating me.  One of the biggest things that was bugging me was the restrictions and functionality of blogger.  Now I decided to fix this I needed to move away from Blogger and migrate over to word press as this would give me the freedom I had been craving from my blog.  The lack of adaptability and changes I could make with blogger had contributed to me falling out of love with my blog don’t get me wrong when I first started this blog back in 2103 blogger was simple and allowed me to create what I wanted to very easily but as things evolve you realise its limitations and that you want more.  If I went back in time would I change anything no I love the ease of blogger but I have evolved and changed and want more.  With the help of the lovely phil at pipdig they migrated my blog over to WordPress I decided to use pipdig as I have always used their templates on blogger and been really happy with their services.  The process was very straight forward but not something I wanted to attempt myself and I am so happy with my decision.  It has finally given my the chance to do what I want with my blog more freedom on design and much easier than I expected.  I hope you like the changes that I have made and will continue with me on this new journey where ever it takes me you also see more variation of content as I want share everything I have been enjoying not just beauty!  I know feel like I have the tools to take my blog in the direction I want it to and have my mojo back.
