Sooner or later

Friday, July 10, 2015


I've been thinking lately about having a little facelift around here; it's been almost two years since I had the big shake up with the new blog name and redesign and I'm now getting sorely tempted to have another makeover. A concept has been worming it's way into my head for months now but I've yet to take the plunge into orchestration as it's going to be time consuming and if I'm honest, a little beyond my techie capabilities. I really want to know where my blog is going wrong so I can make sure it gets back on track in future. In terms of posts the balance is one I'm really happy with; a pleasant mix of outfits and fashion finds, countryside photography, fitness and lifestyle updates. The somewhat erratic feel to posts is what suits me best....often I don't plan more than a couple of days ahead an am almost always constructing a post from scratch the night before. It's 11:15pm and I've edited the pictures and this is as far as I've written. It may shock you to know that I spell check and scan through each post but often I don't read back what I've written thoroughly*. I'd love to get to a stage where I properly construct and finish each post a good few days before publishing but frankly that's not going to happen in a hurry so I'll make do with my current system for the moment. Mornings where I have a post ready to share (or just need a light tinkering) make me get up with a spring in my step; there is a little fizz of excitement which usually provide me with the motivation to get out of bed as soon as I'm awake (around 5:50 to 6am) and set to work making breakfast and readying myself for the day ahead with significantly more enthusiasm than if I have nothing new ready to post.

So, there is a chance that things may get a little spruce up sooner or later, but I'm hoping it's sooner!

  1. I know what you mean with a facelift, I need a fresh look too but don't know exactly what I want!

  2. I'm sure you'll make it pretty whatever and whenever you do it. I like your content, routine and set up and I'm not sure you're doing anything wrong, it always seems well written, well edited and professionally put together. Perhaps only blog interaction might be the area that stops other people from commenting or returning if they're not your blog friends already as what can seem like a one-way relationship is not really what many bloggers want, but if you're busy I guess it is hard to want to bother. Anyway, I look forward to blog developments with eager anticipation. X

  3. Read that back and didn't quite say what I meant, sounds a bit awkward. What I meant is that if you've got 600 followers, as well as your own, it's quite hard to summon up the energy, effort and time to try and interact. X

  4. I'm actually quite excited to see what you're developing. If it feels right for you then try it; I love your blog, but if you're being lead elsewhere then I understand too.

  5. A fresh burst of colour, design or imagary always gives me a new found enthusiasm for blogging. I struggle with time, and often find myself wondering if I ever will get to grips with planning or preparing. I seem to photograph constantly, but share very less, which makes a very uneven ratio.
    Watch this space, indeed.

    I'm always intrigued by your wonderings, my friend.

  6. Oh exciting! I always do mine as a spare of the moment thing, getting it to a point that I like it and then I spend a few days tweaking it. I've never been brave enough to change the name though.


I love to hear your comments xx
