Happy new year everyone! I feel like the last month has been such a blur and I haven’t had a chance to catch up. So why not have a chatty post and talk about a couple of things with you all. I recently started my new job in November and during December my hours went to double as it was Christmas peak. So that might explain one of the reasons why I’ve gone a little quiet! Another which you might have noticed whilst clicking onto this page is that my blog is looking a bit bare today. And not for the best reason. Over the Christmas period my blog hosting was due for renewal and I panicked. The new price was a bit steep and out of my budget range. I mean I just spent my entire last wage on Christmas bits and bobs. So I looked for a new host who would let me pay monthly rather than fork out at once. As recommended by Gee I went with the company Kualo who have honestly been the biggest help and answered a 100 questions for me.
What wasn’t helpful was that I never backed up my blog. I lost EVERYTHING. Again. However this time I didn’t lose my domain and I still have bits saved to the computer. But I thought I’d just with the flow this time and hope it lights a fire under my arse to keep posting and get excited about blogging again. So for all of you reading right now if you have a blog – BACK IT UP. I can’t tell you how upset I was when I realised what happened but it’s done. After brooding for a night.. okay a few nights I decided to plan.
What to do next?
Rebrand. I want to rebrand the look of my blog but not just that. The future of all my social media especially Instagram. So I’m not going to lie. I haven’t got it all ready to get going from the get go. It’s going to take a while for things to get running smoothly the way I want it all to go. Whilst working and having a toddler around and trying to keep my house clean and tidy. But I feel determined more than ever to make this work because it’s my passion and pride and joy.
I’m not only making a few changed with my blog but also my personal life and I’ll be sharing those with you all over the next few weeks. For now, I’m hopping to my rebrand and I’ll speak soon and wish you the happiest new year!
