A whole new look

Thursday, August 29, 2013


Well hello there! At last the new design is live after hours of toil, so what do you think?
Much as I loved the old format I had been feeling increasingly like I wanted to make some changes. The blog name was mulled over for weeks and one of my first ideas was ‘Sophie in the Sticks’. I had a whole list of possibilities, which ranged from the far too long to the ridiculously hard to spell, yet this one seemed just right. After all, this blog is about ME in the middle of nowhere. The Norfolk countryside is a pivotal part of my life so it made sense to keep it a fundamental part of the title. You wouldn’t believe how many million pictures I have taken and the lengths I have gone to, or maybe you have been through it all yourself.
You may also notice that there are some nifty new tabs at the top too as well as a brand new blog button. I’d love it if you currently have my old button that you would be sweet enough to exchange it for my new button. Of course, I’d love you to pop my blog button in your sidebar if it takes your fancy anyway!

So what do you think? Hope you’re going to stick with me (you can laugh at this) and enjoy reading. Remember to search for sophieinthesticks.co.uk now. My twitter handle is changing to @sophieintsticks and the Facebook page, Bloglovin and Wiwt accounts will be changed as appropriate. New email address is sophieinthesticks@gmail.com if you would like to get in touch.
