Welcome to 2013 – A new year, A new look, A new approach.
Welcome back to Becoming Beautiful – delighted to see you here on the first day of 2013!
There’s a few things to cover today, so sit tight!
How do you like our new dress?
The past half a year has seen me flit in and out of the blog, much like the lazy butterfly who comes and goes as they please. I’ve been busy, that is true, but I have also been unhappy. Unhappy with how the blog is, unhappy with the feel, unhappy with what it had morphed into. Not one to sit around being unhappy for long, I set about looking for some new threads for the blog and after 6 months of searching, I finally settled upon this.
It’s cleaner, less clutter, more sophisticated, and just a touch more class. Perfect for signifying me moving onto the next step of my life, I believe!
Things that have changed:
- Reviews will no longer be on the main blog. Instead, they will all be on my new KISS site.
- The blog will no longer be just a beauty blog. I will be incorporating everything that I think is necessary towards us working towards a more beautiful lifestyle. That means, inspirational quotes and stories, reader spotlights, interviews, tutorials, fashion, beauty, craft, etc etc. Everything amazing, of course!
- I have removed most advertisements.
- There will be an even bigger call than ever before for you to be involved. Becoming Beautiful is not just about my journey towards being beautiful, it is about yours too.
I have not been a good blogger, nor a good friend, nor a good writer in 2012. I mean to change that for the better in 2013. I have now finally identified who my friends are (moving away from your comfort zone really gives you perspective), and have realised just why I was so unhappy for a lot of 2012.
While 2012 was not the most stellar of years, I feel that I have grown a lot as a person and certainly as I stand in a new city (Adelaide still feels new to me), I am thrilled by the potential that lies ahead of me.
Every day is a new day, and instead of mulling over what has past, I am going to face each day with new eyes and surge ahead.
I must say thank you. I would not be here if not for my wonderful readers who have continued to support me through my ups and downs. It’s always nice to write, but it is even nicer to be able to write for somebody. So Thank you, and here’s to a wonderful 2013 – together.
