Itâ€™s HERE! At long last! Iâ€™m running around my apartment throwing confetti into the air! Iâ€™m having a solo celebration and I donâ€™t care if my neighbours can hear me! Pop the champagne! FREE CANDIE HAS ARRIVED.
Um, yeah, things look a little different.
If youâ€™re wondering why this is happening, and if youâ€™re currently hyperventilating into a paper bag because you canâ€™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, Iâ€™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 Iâ€™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 youâ€™re wondering what will go under Writing, Iâ€™ll be talking a lot about the writing process (especially after having written that manuscript) and how I live my digital nomad life.
Thereâ€™s also a Places page for when you want to research a destination. And might I say, isnâ€™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 Iâ€™d like to share those things with you. I get an INSANE amount of queries from people planning their travels — whether itâ€™s Newfoundland or Greece or somewhere else — and so hopefully this will help you plan your journey a little easier.
It wonâ€™t be just travel, either. But weâ€™ll talk more about that soon.
The ResourcesÂ 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 itâ€™s travel gear, booking sites, feminine hygiene products, or simply notebooks (addicted), Iâ€™ll include links and feedback.
ALL THINGS CANDIE! Handfuls and handfuls of Candie!
Actually, this is where Iâ€™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.Â Iâ€™ve also set up a SmugMug account so you can buy photography from me. If something catches your fancy, have at â€˜er.
ISNâ€™T EVERYTHING JUST WONDERFUL?! No more nasty sidebar ads. Improved navigation. Larger text. Better photography. Better reading. MOAR AWESOME.
Sorry Iâ€™m really excited.
Hold onto your pants, itâ€™s gonna get wild in here.
