Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about renaming this blog.
When I first started blogging, back in 2010, I was saving for my first home, and this was going to be a blog to talk about all the lovely things I was planning on doing to that home. Mainly in terms of the decor and furnishings. Which is why I called it Shabby Chic Home as I was a bit obsessed at the time with the whole shabby chic look.
But then I got a bit bored of blogging and didn’t really start blogging properly again until the summer of 2013. By then I had bought my house and my now husband and I (he was just the boyfriend back then), decorated as we both wanted. Which is actually more Next-catalogue than shabby chic!
But I had this blog all built, so I thought I’d just update the look and feel of it and carry on using it as my main domain for my blogging as it was just easier and already had got a bit of traffic coming to it naturally.
Since I don’t focus solely on beauty or fashion, I’d say this blog is more of a lifestyle blog than anything else. I don’t really talk too much about home decor or design.
I’ve been wondering if the name – Shabby Chic Home, is a bit off-putting to people. Like they expect it to be a blog all about home decoration and shabby chic stuff.
I own the domain victoriachapman.co.uk and I think this might be a more suitable domain for my blog. I couldn’t think of a new blog name, so my name is as good as any right?
Also I’m thinking about possibly also starting to make and sell some simple silver jewellery online too, so it could be that I use my blog as a platform for that too. So I don’t want anything that’s going to potentially limit that.
So those are my thoughts right now. I’ve actually been working on a new blog design over on the other domain. I’ll post some screenshots of those tomorrow, so come back then and let me know what you think of the new design!
What do you think? Is moving to victoriachapman.co.uk a good idea?
