Blog rebrand!

As you can probably tell my blog has had a bit of a makeover! I purchased a 'pipdig' template and asked for the labels to have sub-labels. I specifically requested the sub-labels so that anyone new coming to my blog could easily navigate their way around all my content. Having spent an entire morning saving my blog posts into word documents I was astounded at the amount that I have written for this blog! Now I see why people tweet about their archive posts!

I requested the 'ledger' template from pipdig and am so pleased with the result! I have also renamed my blog from 'Brown Paper Roses' to 'the small desk'. I decided to change the name, as I wanted it to fit in with my career aims. I would love to do some more freelance copywriting and freelance proofreading and I felt that this name was a better brand for my ambitions. My dream would be to have some of my articles on other more successful blogs or specific magazines. I felt that the previous name was a good name for a blog focused on fashion and beauty but I have drifted away from these topics and want to focus more on travel, writing and lifestyle. I should also explain my 'about' picture: this is me holding up just a few of my diaries that I have written since I was 10 years old, so clearly this blogging culture was the next logical step! The photo that you see on the left is a photo of ALL my old diaries!

The rebrand of my blog also ties in with the post I wrote before I went to Australia on my blog ambitions. When it comes to my hobbies I often don't keep up with them or don't follow up the goals I set myself, so I'm quite proud of myself for sorting out this rebrand and redesign! I'm really excited about this new chapter in the life of this blog and would love to read what you think of this change. Please do leave a comment or tweet me!

  2. Oooh! I have that 3rd diary! I've written for the last 5 years so I know what it's like to transition from page to screen. Congrats on getting a new look and a new direction! Your blog looks amazing! xx
