Alright 'relaunch' might be a bit dramatic for a blog but it feels like the right word...sort of. As you may be able to see my blog has had a bit of a make over (I'm still sorting out admin pages, ironing things out and going through past posts but I'm getting there) thanks to Faye. I loved my previous design and logo, loved it but at the tail end of last year and start of this year I fell out of love with my blog as a whole. I'd sit in front of the screen struggling to put my thoughts down on the page, I was overworked with new contracts and truth be told I'd lost my confidence. I tried and tried to start again and get back in the swing of things but I couldn't and I'd sit there staring at the screen and my blog and anger would brew up inside.
Something drastic had to happen. A midweek 'weekend' with my blogging friend Louise spurred me on to get back into it, to feel passionate and to get going again but I got home and looked at my unloved blog and still couldn't bring myself to blog (that and Virgin Media giving us shoddy internet supply out here in the deepest darkest depths of erm...Manchester). So I decided to have the blog made over, to have new colours and a new look and I think it's worked - shallow or what? I'm feeling refreshed and excited, plus get this...I have dozens of blog post ideas. HURRAH.
A few things are going to change (new blog series etc.) and I'll be mentioning some of them as and when they happen but some of them you'll notice straight away. There are more posts on the front page but they're organised in a neater fashion. You'll noticed a tab called 'discounts' and soon I'll be sorting out some coupons, codes and discounts from retailers in order to save A Thrifty Mrs readers money. And categories and archives (which are in the process of an update) are more visible meaning it's easier to track down posts.
I hope you like the new look, I look forward to posting and chatting with you in the comments section - which is something I've missed most whilst having the blogger blues.
