Wow. It seems like I have been away forever. Well, I kind of have been away from the blog for a while, but not really, and definitely not on purpose. I needed to distance myself from my blog for a while so that I can get a clear view of where I want to take my blog. So, what have I been up to over the last few weeks?
- I’m renaming my blog.
After thinking about it long and hard, I am renaming my blog. I felt like the old name didn’t fit the new style and niche of my blog, and to be completely honest with you all, it was actually embarrassing to tell people the name of my blog and then try to explain to them what I do. Their puzzling faces drove me nuts and I decided to just do it (nope, not endorsing that famous brand). So, with every spare minute and second I had, I have been working on the new blog. #StayTuned
- I’m designing the new blog.
Along with a new name, comes a new look and feel. The new design will fit in perfectly with the new name and it is coming together nicely.
- I’ve relooked my goals and objectives
Glamorous Glitter has become quite a successful blog over the last 6 years and with the new change of niche, name and design comes new goals and objectives. I’ve written down my new goals and objectives, mulled them over, relooked at them and rewrote them. Finally, I have a set of goals and objectives to take my blog to the next level (eugh, cringe, I just hate saying that, but I couldn’t find a better way to express myself). P.S. Awesome post (and awesome freebie coming soon).
- I’ve done my research
For those of you that have been following me on this journey, you might know what I am SEO-obsessed. This means that I did a lot of keyword research to ensure that the new blog and the new content rocks Google’s socks off. I narrowed down my keyword strategy and I now know exactly what, where and how when it comes to content creation for the new site. P.S. Awesome post (and awesome freebie coming soon). I’ve also designed a content and social media calendar that works for me.
- I’m rewriting The Blog Marketing Guide
In between all of the research, design and writing, I have also been working on creating an even better blog marketing guide, packed with more information, worksheets and insanely helpful tips and tricks! The brand new The Blog Marketing Guide with launch so, so soon!
- I’m developing and writing kick-ass and insanely informative content
Yes, I haven’t deserted the blogging world completely. Behind the scenes, I have been working on content that will change the way you blog. I’ve partnered with experts, chatted to bloggers and small biz owners and I am developing content just for you.
- I’m designing more free resources
And along with more awesome content, comes more awesome freebies, because who doesn’t love a freebie right?
- I’m speaking at a conference
Yup, you read that right. This weekend I will be chatting all things SEO at a social media boot camp. #excited
- I’m juggling a household, a move and a 9-5
And in between all of the above, I am trying to spend as much time with my husband and loved ones as possible, plan a move and still work extremely hard on my new 9-5.
Anyway, so, that is what I have been up to over the last 6 weeks. I promise that this is not the end of me and this blog, and whilst I am working on the new site, I will still update this one regularly.
