A Little Refresh

When i started this little blog of mine, almost a year ago now, I wasn't really sure what I was doing or, more importantly, who I was doing it for. 

You see, I had previously dabbled in the world of beauty blogging before, trying to fit into that blogger shaped mould, but it never really stuck. As much as I love makeup, I can't review a bloody lipstick to save my life (a few paragraphs of this is a lovely shade of red...it goes on nicely....and....err....I like it. K, thanks, bye" does not a beauty blogger make).

And so this time I thought, I can be a travel blogger - I love travelling and sharing my adventures, plus it will be a sort of digital diary for me to look back through. And so I set up My Wanderlust Life - and two posts later realised I was out of content. I just don't have the time (or the finances!) to travel as often as I'd like. 

By trying to put myself into that very restrictive box, I really limited myself and struggled to create new content that I felt was relevant - which is why it ended up taking me a year to write up my Rome Travel Diary!

Cut to ten months later and I have a handful of sporadic posts that don't really fit my travel theme and absolutely no motivation to write anything new. A change was needed if I was to maintain my little space on the internet.

So welcome to JaydeMatthews.com - a name that reflects my new Pot Noodle theme: me me me.

By giving myself the freedom to write about anything and everything that interests me, I'll *hopefully* be inspired to create more content and post more regularly. Here's to an A+ plan anyhow!

So what can you expect to find here going forward? Well tbh pretty much anything goes now. I'll continue to post my travel diaries and my vegan eats discoveries, but I'll also post about books, fashion, days out and, of course, lots of ramblings and musings on life. 

Please do link your own site in the comments, I love finding new blogs to follow.

  1. I've had a rebrand recently myself, I find it easier just being a 'lifestyle blogger' which basically means blogging anything that comes to mind lol. Nice post, going to get stuck into a few more.

    1. Thanks so much Shay! I agree, it's easier to find more content and feel more motivated. Plus, it's our space, we can do what we want with it! :)
