Beauty by Birdy Gets A Makeover!

March 1, 2018


A few of months ago I decided my New Years Resolution was going to be a little different…

Rather than focusing on eating better, going to the gym more, drinking more water, or spending less money, I decided I wanted to invest in Beauty by Birdy! This resolution consists of a number of different goals – the first being a brand new look!

I’ve been blogging for more than three years now and I’ve used the same layout I designed with Blogger when I first launched the site. I recently made the switch to self-hosted WordPress and I’m absolutely in love with how the new Beauty by Birdy turned out. It’s more user-friendly and hopefully more reader-friendly too!

I have trust issues, so I decided to transfer the content by myself. Which definitely took longer than it should have!! But it also gave me the opportunity to reflect on where this little blog started and how far I have come. I seriously considered deleting a number of blog posts – the photos make me cringe!! But I think it’s important to show progress. That’s the point of resolutions after all, right?

I can’t help but feel proud about how much better my photography has gotten. Even my writing has improved. Sure, it’s not all perfect. But perfect is boring. And perfect leaves little room to learn and grow.

This fresh look has ignited a ton of inspiration and motivation. I can’t wait to publish more posts, play with more beauty products, test more healthy recipes and interact with you all! The new year has been great so far and I’m excited to see what the rest of 2018 has in store.

I hope you like the little makeover Beauty by Birdy has received! I’ve worked really hard on it and I would love to hear what you think.

    I thought that your original blog format was great, but this is even better! Keep up the wonderful work, blogs can be time consuming and challenging. I admire you for taking the time and effort required to provide your readers with entertaining and useful info!
