I’ve been working really hard on my blog makeover and am proud to say that all of the custom designing and graphics were done 100% by me! So I was sitting here this morning admiring it, (yes, really…lol) and had a few thoughts…
I realised that redesigning the blog was much more than an exercise in making it look good. Why did I even feel I needed to change it? After all, it looked pretty good already. (Lots of people had told me so.) ? Well, it turns out, that it’s all part of a bigger picture.

The old design didn’t really speak to my heart. I had designed it to try to appeal to as many people as possible. When I was choosing the colours, I kept asking myself questions like ‘but will men not like it?’, ‘what about single women…maybe they’ll like these colours…’ On and on… Until what I had was ‘nice’… but not ‘ME’.
In my last post about taking back my blog I promised that this year- ‘I will share my real self… and choose honesty over wanting to be liked.’
This blog design is part of that promise.
When I look at it, I don’t just see a pretty site. I can FEEL it, and it feels like my soul. And my soul is what I want to share with YOU.
So here’s what I want you to think about~
- Does your life look like ‘you’?
- When you think about it, are you sharing your real self with the world?
- Is there one small thing you could change today that would show people a little more of you?
Choose that ‘one thing’ and then follow these steps:
- Write down your ‘one thing’.
- Share your ‘one thing’ with at least one other person.
- Make a plan of 3-5 steps that you need to do to achieve your ‘one thing’.
- Do one step every day starting today.
- Leave a comment here and let us know how it’s going.
