Hey guys! Welcome back. So I don’t know if you have noticed, but there have been some changes made to the blog. So I felt the need to come on here and not only explain the changes, but also talk about why they have happened and what changes are coming moving forward. I know that change is never easy, and trust me it’s an adjustment for me as well, but these are changes I have been wanting to make for a long time and really felt compelled to make.
As most of you probably know I started my blog nearly three and half years ago. Back in June of 2017 I was just getting started in the world of social media and creating content. I never dreamed it would grow into what it has become. But it hasn’t been without it’s challenges. I started creating content because I truly love it and I wanted to be able to write and work for myself. I didn’t want to have to answer to anyone else. I also strive to give my guest writers that same freedom.
There have been many people who have written wonderful pieces for me and done wonderful work for this blog and all that it stands for. These past few years have been the most wonderful and also the most challenging and I love that I have been able to share that with all of you. With that being said I’m not the same person I was three years ago. I’m not even the same person I was a year ago. So after a lot of reflection, brainstorming, and fleshing out ideas I decided to go with my gut.
My gut was telling me that I needed to rebrand. Now that I am in a new chapter in my life and I have the ability to share more and spend more time growing as a person, it only made sense that I started a new chapter with my blog, YouTube Channel, social media, and everything else that comes along the way. I felt a strong need to create a fresh start, but don’t worry, the old content isn’t going anywhere. I didn’t delete anything. I essentially just hit the refresh button.
You also may have seen that I recently made some changes over on Instagram. That will for now be my personal Instagram. I will be creating a completely separate Instagram account for the content I am creating. It won’t just be for the blog, but for all of the content that I am creating. It’s not ready now because I am still working on design and logos and everything, but I wanted to let you know that both the Instagram and the Twitter will be changing very soon.
Change is very scary sometimes and I know it will take some getting used to, but I think in this phase of my life it is very important. I changed the name and the site to “Girl On The Go” because if you know me at all you know that I’m always on the go. I’m always working on something. I’m always trying to move forward. I also changed the theme to something that looks a little more cohesive and that you guys enjoy.
I don’t know exactly what is coming in the future, but I do know that there are some big things that I am working on. Some things I have briefly mentioned in the past and other things that I haven’t yet mentioned but will as time goes on. The content here will stay the same, but will grow and develop as I do. The things I talk about reflect the things I am experiencing, learning, and doing in life and I think that’s how it should be.
These changes are not new to me. It’s not something I woke up today and just decided to do. I have been considering this for quite some time, but I never had the guts to do it. Today is the day I decided it was time. It’s time to start over and create a fresh start. I think it is needed for everyone. So I really hope you continue to join me on this journey as I share my life with you and hopefully inspire you to continue living your absolute best life.
Thank you all for your support, your kindness, and continuing to be here for me everyday. I cannot believe that we are so close to 1,700 followers here on the blog alone. If you are not following already I encourage you to do so because this is only the beginning. And if you have any requests of things you would like to see content wise, leave those in the comments. Also, I am going live on the Happy Hour YouTube Channel at 7:00 p.m. CST!!!
