Changes in 2020

Hi lovelies, so before the year is up I want to talk about some pretty big changes around here. I really hope you will still follow me on my new journey, and also please do let me know what you think.

I think I have mentioned a few times previously that I wanted to read/research more about website design and domains etc. Basically I wanted to make sure I knew all the information before I made any decisions with my blog.

Therefore, the first big change will be I am getting a domain! I am pretty excited about this, and it might take me a while to adjust and figure things out! I mean like I have said I am not the best when it comes to technical stuff. However, I am a good learner and can pick things up quickly!

The second big change which I know is probably going to take some getting used to is… I want to change my name. I know this is a big deal but when I first created this blog (when I didn’t even write any posts haha) I chose this name to disguise myself. It was a way for me to hide I guess, but still talk about things that I wanted to talk about. In a way I didn’t want people to find me (that sounds weird I know).

However, the last year I have grown a lot, I have become so much more confident, I have learnt a lot and I have loved blogging. It has become a part of me, a hobby that I want to progress further! It will still just be a hobby but I love doing it so want to get better at it you know?

The new name will be “Gemma Jayne” hopefully (you should see how it may look in my picture in the header). I am going to try and change this site and all my social media sites at the same time, but please be patient with me if things do go a bit weird for a while! Something may go wrong so I am gonna try my best with this! I want to get it all running smoothly.

The main reason why I decided with this new change to put simply I just wanted to go with my own name, especially when I want to get a domain. I just think it makes sense and is more adult, and more me. Plus I love it. I just want to use my name and to be honest I don’t really like my current name anymore. It is time for a reboot and refresh!

Lastly, I will be deciding for definite on an upload schedule and changing my blog around a bit. This will be why it might be a bit weird for a while haha. So please stick around and continue to support like you lovely people do at the moment! I need to figure this all out and play around with it until it is perfect.

Let me know your thoughts or any advice you have because I will probably need it haha! 

Thanks for reading, I wanted to provide this update before the year was out because you are all so lovely and supportive and you deserve to know what’s going on! I am hoping these changes will begin to roll out at some point during January! I mean what better way to kick start the year?

Here’s to the new year my loves! Have a good one. Also I have a post coming tomorrow giving an overview of December so look out for that.
Thanks for reading,

Gemma xx

  1. Yay this is so exciting! I’ve been thinking of getting a domain for my blog for the new year too, but I still have quite a bit of research to do before I do. Do you know who you’re getting the domain from? I’ve been thinking of just going with WordPress, but I don’t know if there’s any better options. I had my own self-hosted blog before, but things have definitely changed a lot since then. But your name is so pretty; I feel like my name is so common that I wouldn’t be able to use it for a name blog haha.

    1. You definitely should do it! Yeah I was thinking whilst I am still learning and beginning to just go with one like WordPress but thatโ€™s the last thing I am sorting out before I do it- which one to go with haha! Oh wow that is cool! I feel like there needs to be a class I can go to to help with all this stuff ๐Ÿ˜‚
      Thank you so much, that means a lot! I am sure you definitely could! Thanks for the comment ๐Ÿ˜Š xxx
