A small announcement

Hello lovelies! First of all I'm really sorry I haven't blogged for ages, work is insanely busy at the moment as my manager's on leave and we're in the last push of our major campaign. Plus I had one of those weeks where I had writer's group, a WI meeting and a hairdresser's appointment, on top of the gym and then going to watch the Masters Tennis at the Royal Albert Hall yesterday with my mum and sisters. New Year's Resolution number one: schedule to within an inch of my life.

The other reason for my lack of blogging lately is because I'm currently working on giving it a makeover. As some of you are aware, I've been dithering with whether to rebrand my blog for a little while now. I've really loved being What Laura Did for the past few months but now feel that it maybe isn't quite the right fit for the blog, so I've been in the market for a new name. I currently have it narrowed down to three - The Stuff You May Have Missed, Rose & Magpie or Cherry Soda - but will let you know which one I choose soon. Although any opinions on the name would be greatly appreciated! I'm going to do a poll as well so feel free to take part in that, and leave any other name suggestions in the comments.

As part of the overhaul I also wanted to change my site's look - it just feels a bit too cluttered and the colour scheme's kind of boring - so have asked the lovely Kaelah Bee to do a redesign for me. After seeing her work on Becky Bedbug's blog I knew she'd do a great job and I'm very excited to see what she comes up with! I have been my usual terribly vague and relaxed self about the design - the only thing I'm very specific about is that I want the site to have a clean, neat, organised look - but based on her previous work I'm confident it'll be brilliant.

Once I've finally decided what to rename my blog and bought the domain name I'll set up my new social media accounts, which means I'll be moving all my blogging contacts on Twitter across to the new account. @Laura_C_Tweets will become my personal/work account so please don't be alarmed if I stop following you - it just means I'll be picking up again with my new account, which I'll use for all my blogging activity. But until then you can still reach me there so please feel free to tweet me.

Also just a small reminder that you can follow my blog with Bloglovin. I would love some more followers and am hoping to run a giveaway when I get to 100 (currently at 65). I have a brilliant prize lined up for when I get there, so if you'd like to be in with a chance to win it please do give me a follow!

Have you rebranded your blog? How did you find the process? And what tips would you have for anyone rebranding? Let me know in the comments and have a great day!

  1. Rebranding is such an exciting process. We've voted. Love them all but we're being drawn to Rose & Magpie.

  2. I rebranded 3 months ago and it was pretty smooth, except my Google pagerank vanished when I changed my URL. Good luck! :)
