Have you noticed something different around here lately? It’s been in the works for a long, long, long time. When you have a project or business like blogging that you’ve poured your heart and soul into for such a long time, it can be so daunting to make a big change to what you’ve been doing (especially something on the back end, like getting a new domain name and trying to make sure your site doesn’t crash and burn and disappear forever. No pressure or anything!)
After two years of going back and forth though, I finally pulled the trigger and I am absolutely in love with all of the changes. I hope you are, too! All in all, things probably look relatively the same besides a new logo and other aesthetic alterations, and the fact that now you can simply type in “The Prep Essentials” to visit me here!
Looking back on some of my oldest posts like this one and this one…it’s safe to say I’ve come a LONG way! These still crack me up, and I can remember incredibly vividly where I was when I wrote them and who was with me. I didn’t have the faintest idea that my blog would become such a massive part of my life!
Same blog, same me, same great content – just a little bit…better. All in all, my main fear was that I wanted the changes to be seamless, and I think that they were! That said, I know I’ve mentioned a few times that things have been a little bit hectic in my professional and personal life these last few months, and my poor little blog has taken the brunt of that. I’m hoping to re-dedicate myself now and really kick off the year on a solid note – which means one thing: I Need Your Help!
I get occasional suggestions and requests on here for post content or topics you guys want me to cover, but I would really really love more feedback! Is there a particular post you just loved and want more of? (Or even one you hated…but be gentle!) Is there a topic you’d love to hear more about but can’t seem to find anywhere? Whatever it is, I would seriously love any and all suggestions, encouragement, or ideas! I want this blog to be as helpful and exciting and fun to you as it feels to me.
In the meantime, I have some seriously awesome content lined up for you guys, so don’t go far! Comment your feedback or suggestions below, or shoot me an email on my contact page! I’d love to hear from each and every one of you!
