I’ve been a bit AWOL for the past week or so here. The reason being, something you might have noticed – my blog looks a little bit different. I’ve actually…wait for it…moved over to WordPress! Yep, after years of Blogger making my images all grainy and dull, I’ve been lured in by a prettier interface, more customisation options and LOTS OF PLUGINS. Which is the perfect time for a bit of a redesign. After hours of browsing, I picked my theme up from ThemeForest – it’s the Journey theme from Indieground – and it’s pretty much exactly what I’d been looking for. I’ve probably spent about a full night’s sleep worth of hours just playing with the colour schemes but I think I’ve pretty much got it sorted!
Migrating to WordPress was actually really easy. I say that because I didn’t actually do it myself. Having a full time job only leaves me with enough time to tweak menu font colours until 2am, not fiddle around with actual technial bits and destroy everything I love in the process. I’m using TSOhost for my hosting, and they offer a free migration service which I used and would definitely recommend. They got it done super quick!
Despite loving the uniqueness of my old Blogger layout, I felt like I wanted something cleaner, where the content could really take centre stage. But don’t worry, there’ll be a few more changes coming soon to put some individuality and style back into the blog. The fabulous Jemma is going to be sorting me out with a snazzy new blog header next month and I’m super excited!
While I’ve been having blog downtime, I’ve also been working on some content that I’m really excited about putting out and hoping you enjoy – starting with a travel post tomorrow!
Do let me know what you think of my new look – and feel free to give me a follow on Bloglovin if you don’t already to keep up to date with all the new content that’s coming!
