It’s HERE! At long last! I’m running around my apartment throwing confetti into the air! I’m having a solo celebration and I don’t care if my neighbours can hear me! Pop the champagne! FREE CANDIE HAS ARRIVED.
Um, yeah, things look a little different.
If you’re wondering why this is happening, and if you’re currently hyperventilating into a paper bag because you can’t deal with change, please refer to this blog post I wrote awhile back about my transition.
This has been a lot of work. I mean a LOT.
There were photo shoots, and long writing sessions, and many Skype chats. I knew that hiring Hannah and Lee from Further Bound for my redesign/rebrand would be the right decision, and it WAS. When we first started chatting, I wrote out everything I was feeling in a massively long email and sent it their way. I figured Hannah would call it quits immediately because I was all over the place — an excited kid at Christmas not knowing where to get started. Instead, Further Bound was up for the challenge. And my, what a challenge it was.
Other than the obvious redesign and rebrand, I’ve now divided my blog content into three main categories: Travel, Writing, and Lifestyle. Obviously the Travel section is still going to get a great deal of attention, as it IS such a huge part of my life. But there are so many other things I want to talk about lately. Like volunteering with the refugees in Berlin, how I’m using Bumble to meet new people, applying for erotic jobs (just kidding Mom lol), my new book…and now I can do all these things, without throwing things off balance.
If you’re wondering what will go under Writing, I’ll be talking a lot about the writing process (especially after having written that manuscript) and how I live my digital nomad life.
There’s also a Places page for when you want to research a destination. And might I say, isn’t it divine?
The new Guides page is still a work in progress, but I like to consider myself an expert on a few things (Newfoundland, for one) and I’d like to share those things with you. I get an INSANE amount of queries from people planning their travels — whether it’s Newfoundland or Greece or somewhere else — and so hopefully this will help you plan your journey a little easier.
It won’t be just travel, either. But we’ll talk more about that soon.
The Resources page is a detailed list of everything I use to make my travel and work life easier, as well as a little info on each item. Whether it’s travel gear, booking sites, feminine hygiene products, or simply notebooks (addicted), I’ll include links and feedback.
ALL THINGS CANDIE! Handfuls and handfuls of Candie!
Actually, this is where I’ll be sharing my eBooks. This entire page is currently in the works as well, but click through to learn a little about what I have in store. I’ve also set up a SmugMug account so you can buy photography from me. If something catches your fancy, have at ‘er.
ISN’T EVERYTHING JUST WONDERFUL?! No more nasty sidebar ads. Improved navigation. Larger text. Better photography. Better reading. MOAR AWESOME.
Sorry I’m really excited.
Hold onto your pants, it’s gonna get wild in here.
