Hello! Long time no post.
Well, there have been a few sporadic posts here and there, but if I’m being totally honest, and I always try to be on this little corner of the blogosphere, I haven’t been one hundred per cent happy with the content I’ve created over the last few months. Instead of growing with me, I feel like the blog is stuck circa 2014 – and I’m definitely not the person now that I was then. Something’s gotta give.
It’s been almost a year since I found myself reaching for my dreams and grabbing an opportunity that I created for myself with both hands. One year on and I’ve come full circle, back to where I was before but as a completely different person. I’m happy, confident and unlike the old Kate who would shy away from facing fears, I now leap at the chance to prove to myself that I am capable of whatever I put my mind to. Along the way however, I’ve somehow lost my blog mojo – lacking inspiration and motivation to create exciting content for this online sanctuary that has always been a positive platform for me.
After taking time out to gain some perspective, I’ve decided to make a big change around this neck of the woods:
Katie Charlotte Blogs will be undergoing a re-brand!
Next month, I will be re-launching the blog with a new layout, new content and a new schedule (one that I will try my darn hardest to stick to). I’m undecided on whether to even change the name…
I recently attended a workshop at the Cheltenham Literature Festival all about building your online brand, which was run by the lovely Emma Gannon – seriously one of the sweetest, most inspirational ladies I’ve ever met, total #girlboss (if you haven’t read her book Ctrl, Alt Delete: How I Grew Up Online, where have you been?!) After having a good old chat with her after the event about the idea of re-branding my blog, she gave me that extra boost of confidence by advising me to just make the change. Emma’s done it herself with hers (Girl Lost in the City), other bloggers have done it and perhaps now it’s my time to make the jump.
After all, if nothing changes, nothing grows.
I want this blog to ooze with inspiring content. A place for you to read about exciting travel and foodie spots to visit, all my fashion favourites to shop and life chats you can relate to – all whilst being aesthetically pleasing on the eye, of course.
I’m giving myself a time out for the next couple of weeks to get my blog (and personal life) back to a happier place, but I’ll still be posting regular content over on Instagram in the meantime so come and join me on there.
A heartfelt thank you to every single one of you who has stuck by me and the blog – whether you’ve been with me since day 1 or day 1000 – I can’t wait to return with a new and very much improved version of Katie Charlotte Blogs. Keep your eyes peeled…..
