2016 was a tough year for me and for my blog, but also a year for change. I even came to a very complicated moment where I had to decide between keeping my blog, deleting it, and rebranding it. Few highlights of which I believe were the best decision so far from last year was moving my blog to its new home.
New Home. When my blog turned two last 2014, I thought of going self-hosted. I researched a lot about the pros and cons, including where to move. I also asked some bloggers who have done the same. I even bookmarked some of the websites who posted about moving blogs the DIY way.
I could not believe actually that it took me two more years to finally move my blog to its new home. And yes, the idea came 2014 and only decided 2016, 3 months after my blog turned four. And yes again, my blog is now self-hosted. And I love it, even more, today!
New Name. Before I finally moved my blog, I only thought of just moving it as is. But because I also wanted to make it more real, changing its name was one of the options. Goddess in Disguise is actually a love at first choice. The reason why I chose not to use my real name before is because I’d like my blog to be a tease of who I am. Complicated, I know. The Cheryl F, on the other hand, is me. Pretty obvious, I’d like to laugh. That’s my name, what else should I say? HAHA!
New Look. Don’t you love my new blog’s look? I DO. Yes! And I can’t keep my eyes on the menu’s drop down preview. I have been wanting to have one and couldn’t find it with my blog’s past home. The theme is quite expensive, yes but worth every penny. I just have to do a little tweaking and it’s all good. Also, I need someone who can design a logo or at least someone who has an idea on what should my blog’s header be, or someone who is a little artsy than me. Please do ask them to email me! 🙂
How about you? What is your blog’s highlights last year?
