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. But first you might want to catch up on my throwback for 2019!
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.
So let us get into today’s post of…
The changes I am making in 2020!
Getting a domain
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!
I am ready to make that next step to be more professional and take my blog one step further. It is something I want as part of my future so I might as well take these steps in making it how I want it to be.
Changing my name
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) 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).
But I was self-conscious of people that knew me or people in my area would find the blog and judge me for whatever reason.
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 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.
Why the change?
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, so I apologise for anyone that still sticks around. But please do 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!
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 Jayne x
