Arghh do you remember when I posted my first post for the year? On the 1st of March. In which I said I was going to be around more often? But then I kind of disappeared a little. I say a little because I had scheduled a whole bunch of posts to carry me through until the beginning of May. But I haven’t actually been around the blogosphere in that time.
Why? You ask. My cousin got engaged and was getting married two months after the engagement. She asked me to be her maid of honour, which I said “Are you sure? I’m all the way in London…” and she said “Of course I’m sure.” Then I said “Yes, definitely. How could I ever say no?”. And then I proceeded to help her plan her wedding as much as I could from half a world away.
I flew to New Zealand for a week (Literally only six days) so I could be there for the ceremony and help her make the last of the decorations the few days before the wedding. It was amazing, the wedding went off without a hitch, the bride & groom were a beautiful couple, speeches were funny and enjoyable (Personally I think I nailed mine), and dancing hilariously ensued.
Therefore, I have not been around because I have been insanely busy helping with this wedding and organising a few extra surprises for my cousin. Once I flew back to London though, I’ve just been exhausted and had no motivation to blog. Again.
All I can say is, I’m sorry I haven’t been around! And I’m glad I had already pre-scheduled those posts.
I have a new look! I’m really digging it. I wanted to change things up a bit but I wasn’t sure how. The actual layout is the same still because that still works for me, plus I may lack the ability to design my layout any better. And completely re-hauling my layout was taking too much time, I may change the actual layout in the future but for now this will do me fine. What do you think?
What’s a better way to try and get the inspiration flowing than redesigning? A new look makes me feel fresh, and different. I’m definitely feeling inspired to create, and discuss, and explore.
New Blog Series
You read that right! I will be starting a new blog series called Simply Blog. This blog series will mainly focus on simple blogging tips and tricks for bloggers. I wanted a place where I could collate all of this information together, so I thought starting a new blogging series would be perfect.
What should you expect? Blogging how-to’s, tips & tricks, anything blogging.
I’m really excited to start an actual blogging series since I’ve been trying to start one since I started Simply Adrift in March 2016… It only took me 14 months.
