refresh and renew
An unintentional hiatus was just what I needed and so I return here with renewed perspective and a rested body and mind.
And yes, it’s all new! I tried not to be too precious about the redesign – I didn’t want to get too caught up in every.little.detail but it turns out that I’m a stickler for specific fonts and dots and formats. My priorities were simple: make sure the search capabilities were great and categorise every post. With over 1200 posts created over the past eight years, there was a lot of content in the archives that needed to be rifled through. Over the past few months I’ve done just that – and subsequently taken a trip down memory lane – so now you can search the blog via specific categories, sub-categories or the search bar. There are still a few posts from 2008-2012 that need tweaking so if you stumble upon one that has a few formatting errors know that I’m working on it.
It feels good to refresh this space – a perfectly timed virtual spring clean. Have a browse – I hope you like it! And thanks for sticking around after all these years.
I was recently interviewed by Child Mags about my work and blogging so it seems apt to share these words with you here:
“While I may curate a space that’s calm and inviting, I try really hard to ensure it’s not all picture perfect. I love to share beautiful photos, but my words are honest and when I find things challenging or sad or difficult, I always write about them. I don’t have an ethos behind my blog. I don’t write editorial calendars or create lists of to dos. It is what it is, dependent very much on my mood and available time. If I have something to write about I share it and, if not, I’ll step away for a few days. My only intention is authenticity.”
