As I mentioned this past week, I’ve made a few changes around here and wanted to fill you in on them, although they are probably pretty obvious at this point ;)
1 // THE NAME. Previously “Daily Mint”, I’ve changed the name to “Stacy Michelle”, which is simply my first & middle name. A few reasons for this . . . I didn’t feel much of a connection with Daily Mint any longer. I liked it at first, but considering what I want the blog to be, how its evolving, and still has such a long way to go, it just didn’t make sense anymore. I want this blog to reflect myself and my interests & values in a simple, honest way — what’s more honest than my name?
2 // URL. No longer www.dailymintblog.com, I am now stacymichelleblog.blogspot.com. I will eventually, likely, by the domain name, but it doesn’t feel totally necessary right now, considering I still have the old one for another 7 months. This works and makes sense for now.
3 // DESIGN. You figured that out, right? I purchased & downloaded this template from Pink + Lola, and love it. I wanted something simple and clean, still beautiful, that could let the content speak for itself. There is also now a “Share” button at the end of each post. If there are any user issues, let me know!
4 // SOCIAL MEDIA. I have a Facebook page for the blog now, which you can click here to like. I will use it to post new blog posts, and other information. I previously had a separate Twitter account for my blog, but I just couldn’t keep up with two accounts, and therefore wasn’t using either of them! I consolidated into my personal account, which will be used for both now. Follow me on Twitter here. Instagram username has changed to @stacymichelleblog. Got all that? No? I have social media buttons in the sidebar now to simplify, so you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Bloglovin’.
There may be a few little changes here and there over the next couple weeks as I work out the kinks, but nothing drastic!
Now, back to your regularly scheduled content . . . thanks for reading my dears!
