Every now and then I feel like changing things on the blog, just to keep it up-to-date with my evolving tastes and preferences.
This time around though, I’ve decided to undertake a massive change – to move from Wordpress to Blogger. Yes, I know it sounds crazy but I’m pretty confident that my frequent readers will just simply replace the bookmark.
I’ve enjoyed having my blog in the WordPress platform but I was tired of the ads that my non-wordpress readers have to put up with. My blog isn’t a business, and there’s no income in it, so I felt reluctant to pay to have those removed.
As I was thinking about what to do about those ads, I also started to have some re-design ideas. Most of those involved the type of customisation that I’d also have to pay to access in WordPress.
It has been over 7 years since I’ve left Blogger for WordPress, so the thought of moving back was a bit overwhelming at first. After some initial aversive reactions to change, I was off enjoying the freedom that comes with coding your own template.
It has taken me a while but I’m happy enough with the result that I can finally share with you the new BlogFashionPas!
Still focusing on personal style and mindful consumerism, I have taken the opportunity to highlight the blog’s role as a way to share and document my thoughts from this journey.
With that in mind, I have transferred some key posts over and organised them under the umbrella of what I’m calling “The Mindful Notebook” – a place where I (and anyone else) can easily access those resources.
I’ve already started sharing some new things too. Head over to the new location to check out my new series – The Ethical Edit (September edition) – a handful of beautiful new things that popped up at the end of August and throughout September from ethical brands.
I will leave this place accessible for now as there are some resources I’m not transferring but are still interesting to me.
Nevertheless, I hope to see you there: come say hi and let me know what you think of the new space – I’m always looking to improve!
