Today is the day! After a lot of thought, brainstorming, thought, brainstorming, and some more brainstorming…and some design, layouts, tweaking, photoshopping, a little more thought…here it is! The new Hello Creative Blog! I’m pretty excited about it. You might have seen the post at the old blog address (Sweet & Simple Life Blog)…if not, you can read it here: Changes Comin’.
In a nutshell, I wanted a blog name that was a little more unique. I really liked Sweet & Simple Life, and still do. There were just several other blog names that were similar. I wanted to be a little different.
Let me just say – coming up with a blog name is not an easy task.
I found this great guide online that helped. But honestly, I didn’t even use anything I came up with from the exercise. I was trying to think of different variations of the words I had come up with, and suddenly thought Hello Creative. Then I did some searching and saw that Hello Creative Blog didn’t exist…yay!
There was still some thinking, and brainstorming, but eventually I just went with it and decided it fit “me” pretty well. I went back and read my about page and thought, you know what, this makes sense. I wanted to start this blog to share my creative interests, even though they may be all over the place, and so something with the word “creative” works.
So, here we are!
I have tried to transfer as much as possible over to the new web address, but there may be some things missing (like my comments…I thought it worked, then I did another tweak and they disappeared…that’s what I get for trying to figure out HTML on my own). If you follow me on Bloglovin’, it should automatically bring you here. Same with Instagram, Pinterest, and I’ve created new RSS feeds if you subscribe via email. You’ll still see some references to Sweet & Simple Life Blog on previous posts, but that’s okay.
There are going to be a few minor adjustments now that the site is officially “live”, but hang tight. You may not even notice. 🙂
As for the design of the blog, well, not much changed. I just adjusted the layout a little and tried to freshen up the look. Hope you like it!!
Thank you so much for following along. I love writing this blog, and it has become such an outlet for my creative whims since recent changes in my job don’t allow me to design much. Hope you all enjoy it too!
