New Year, New Blog

Hi, Hey, Hello!

Welcome to 2016! And if you haven’t noticed, or the title didn’t kind of give it away in some ways, I have been busy over my little break here on the blog.

I’ve had a bit of a revamp.

And got a new blog name…kinda. I mean my old blog name is still very much there but it has just been downgraded slightly, because letting go is hard and I still stand by those words that now make up my tagline.

So, The Giraffe Files. For some reason it is an idea that has been existing in my brain for a while. But I needed time to figure it out, because of course the idea came to me just when I started working full time. And so when I was armed with some extended time off and a new laptop I took to figuring it out between Christmas and New Year (ya know those weird days that just sort of pass in a strange haze because you’re kind of over Christmas and ready for New Year but it’s not quite there yet) and here it is.

I mean the explanation behind the new title is simple, I love giraffes, like a lot. And also 9/10 times the first thing people feel the need to comment on about me is the fact that I’m tall. I know, yes thank you make the joke, I have definitely not heard it before in the all the years I have been taller than average (which is ya know, like my entire life). So I eventually just adapted to the comments and embraced the whole tall thing. So giraffes.

There’s a logo that I don’t totally 100% hate and everything (I am never happy with anything, I have to be content with only being 90% happy with most things these days…I swear I wasn’t always such a perfectionist, but then again maybe I was). I have also, after what seems like only just putting them all up, taken down all my header photos because I did hate those, they looked messy. I don’t quite know where I am gonna go with those, I might just not use them for the time being. I might give it some more time and truly think about how to make them something that I don’t hate, we’ll find out together.

Other than the obvious changes, I kind of intend to keep this blog the same as it was last year, so seriously there is no new blog really. I am just really bad with titles and this seemed like a good one? (It’s not I know. That might become my ONLY resolution this year, get better at the titling thing). Fridays are still all about the blogger love, Saturdays are effectively rest days, last Sundays of the month are eternally sacred and the other days are up for grabs with whatever catches my fancy, although nothing is ever gonna come truly out of the blue from me, don’t worry I’m not gonna start talking, incorrectly, about astrology or something (that topic could have truly been anything, I don’t know why I went astrology).

I guess I am gonna end this post by saying that I hope you all have a great week and, because we are still totally in the catchment for saying it without it sounding too late, that 2016 is predominantly all the nice things for you.

Parentheses count: 6. And I will see you tomorrow!
