I share with you my plans for the future of this blog.
As I write this, I’m sitting in the garden, it’s boiling hot. Quite lovely actually. I’m half sitting under the washing line (t-shirts and knickers flapping overhead) to stay in the shade and using an upside down washing basket as a makeshift table. Channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw in the most unconventional way!
I’d like to say I’m on a hot tropical island – sipping expensive cocktails, I’m not. I have a half drunk cup of stale tea at my feet with a few insects surfacing to the top.
Tom’s here though. My feline friend loyally resides at my feet. Anticipating when his next meal will be served up in his very expensive and ridiculously patterned china bowl.
The Seychelles no? However I’m home with my cats and it’s pretty near perfect to me.
Anyway I thought it was time for a catch up. Over the past few months my blogging schedule has been a little all over the place. Only now do I feel back on top of things and as if I know where I am headed.
It all started at the beginning of February when I was administered to hospital for an operation on my hand. I had Carpal Tunnel in my right fingers. They used to go numb all the time. It felt like they were fizzing away and some days even menial day-to-day tasks seemed hard.
It’s all sorted now but has taken 9 weeks or so to heal. I don’t know why but all those weeks ago I really thought I’d brainstorm ideas for my blog, workout which direction we were going and deal with life admin. It really hasn’t happened, until now.
With all this hot weather we have been having, I feel the sun has literally ignited something inside me. I feel the beauty blogger is back and the spark has certainly come back and is shining brighter than ever.
I feel that there’s content I really want to put out there and in my head I kind of know which way around the globe I’d be circumnavigating if you get my drift.
Put it like this, if I had a ticket booked to California we’d be going the right way. If I had a ticket confirmed for the Bermuda Triangle then I would probably be missing my flight (accidentally on purpose). As if you can fly there anyway!!! Right?
Enough, with all the rubbish! Let’s chat blogging…
I will be posting more beauty content. I’ve said this before but feel it’s important to take my blog back to it’s roots. More beauty reviews will be coming and I’m currently working on some kind of format (whether I stick to this remains to be seen). So, if you’re looking for a review and head to my blog you will know exactly what to expect.
Hopefully you’ll love it! I’m quite sure there will also be general beauty musings and rambles featured somewhere as well.
Since I started my blog all those years ago, there seems to have been a natural progression where I’ve grown as a person and indeed as a blogger and want to discuss other subjects.
Just think if I had a whole category dedicated to ice-cream or wanted to talk floor tiling (chuckles to self – not quite sure why). Staying away from the floor tiles for now (unless I decide to rip out our kitchen and start again), there will definitely be more lifestyle posts as well. Just think primarily beauty with a little life thrown in.
The plan is twice a week. Now and then I may post something at the weekend as well. If you would like to read my Sunday Rituals post head here. I’m quite sure I may post at random times. If life becomes hectic I may have a rethink.
Wow! Has been a long time coming. I hope you’re as pleased with the finished product as I am. I fancied a little colour, something to reflect me and something with a little edge. I really do hope that I have achieved this?
I’ve done away with Facebook. It just wasn’t for me. Snapchat has gone. I’ve deleted all my old content on Pinterest and reset up new boards, I’m pinning daily (lots) and slowly adding most of my own new blog pins to various boards. This may take a while, but I’m in it for the long haul so I’m hoping it will be worth it.
I always kind of liked Pinterest but I never really knew what I was doing. I’m reading material on how to Pin and trying to be as efficient as possible as well as sharing with you the best pins and content I can find.
Instagram, as we all know is a struggle. I’m trying to build more of a follower base and working hard on Instastories. I’m also posting much more general life stuff on Instagram, so this is where you will see my cats, food and friends.
You may have noticed this new section on my blog. Basically as the name suggests, there are 5 sections, all bite sized pieces, small nuggets of information. It could be anything, travel, life, makeup, a facemask, place, tune or an ode to my cats. A new drink I’ve discovered or a new shop. Literally this will be the place to head for a quick update.
I’ve deleted a tonne of old content (nearly 200 posts). Both posts and embarrassing photos which I would rather forget (and at the time I thought were wonderful). I used to send everything to Stumble Upon after publishing and have realised this is something else which also hasn’t quite worked for me, so I have also deleted that account.
Both my brain and my bloggy brain feel less muddled.
That’s it for now everyone (it was meant to be short – so soz for that, I just wanted to mention EVERYTHING!!)
If you have happened to stumble across my blog then a big Beany welcome. If you have been around since the beginning, then thank you for sticking with me.
I look forward to the future of BBB and posting the best content I can produce for you.
I’d love to know what you think to my plans and new site. Do you have any plans for your own blog? Are you thinking of re-branding?
p.s. Sorry I couldn’t find the Polaroid T-Shirt to add below, however if you head to Matalan it’s still available. In the men’s section and around £8!
p.p.s. Because I have not published a beauty post in yonks, I have also put up my fave current tanning products. Really proud of this post, I hope you enjoy reading.
