New Design & New Beginnings

pigdig blog design

Hello there. Long time no see. It’s been over two months since my last post and I can’t actually believe how fast the time has flown by. In all honestly though, I needed this time. And all months before that where I was barely active on here. I know that you get that a lot from bloggers, it’s such a cliché but it’s true. In my case at least. Over the past year I feel like the blogging scene has changed a lot. All the negativity, the demand for better posts, better photography, greater personality, larger following… It was all too much at some point and couldn’t help but feel like I was not good enough. And it all made me fall out of love of blogging.

On top of that I was dealing with some stuff on personal level, which really only made things worse. My blog used to be the place where I could get away from everything and hide from reality but after that shift in the community it became a place that brought me nothing more than anxiety. And I needed a break.

At some point I didn’t even know if I ever wanted to press that ‘Publish ’button again. Oh do I miss how much more simple having a blog used to be! But things have changed and I better accept it. I had to remind myself why I started blogging in the first place. It wasn’t because of the freebies, the occasional sponsored posts, the number on likes on Instagram or the number of followers on Twitter. No. It was because I loved talking about the things I love and finding likeminded people with similar interests. And realizing that was the very moment that reminded me how much I actually used to love blogging. And it was the very reason for me to come back.

I have never been happier in my life as I am right now. I have never been more excited about the future and yes, I am still dealing with major anxiety but I am working on it. And I feel like I’m slowly but surely getting there. And in the meantime, I will be right here – chatting about my latest favorite lipstick or showing you my latest purchases. Boy, I missed this!

Since I decided it’s time for a big change, I felt like having a fresh start and having a new blog design were in order. I loved my old one but I feel like it was a bit dated and I personally felt like I needed something completely different to keep me inspired. The blogging designs have changed so much over the past year and I figured it was time I upgraded and made my blog more relevant. And this design by PipDig (here) is everything I wished for. I love how simple, yet up-to-date it is.

I adore the new ‘Categories’ feature, the Post Slider, which shows you my most recent posts and the Instagram bar right at the end of the blog is something I’ve always wanted to have. I am a huge perfectionist but I feel like this design has everything I ever wanted, and more. Big thanks to my lovely boyfriend who helped me set everything up and kept me sane in the moments when I felt like I made the biggest mistake by making such a drastic change lol.

Please let me know your thoughts on the new design and if I need to tweak anything to make RosyChicc look better! Your feedback is really important and I cannot wait to hear what you think!
Lost of love,
Andrea
