Running a blog is very much like having a second relationship. You need to invest time, love and passion into your blog in hope you get something in return. There's highs and lows, good days and bad days. Some days where you feel like giving up and others where you fall in love over and over again. It takes time to build this good relationships, but over time people change. Interests change, circumstances change and you sometimes grow apart.
I started this blog six years ago, six very long years ago when I was a different person to who I am now. For a start I wasn't married and secondly I was going through that period that every eighteen year old girl goes through trying to discover herself through beauty and clothes. I only cared what I looked like and saw the world with my eyes half shut. I do very much still care what I look like and I still love fashion and beauty, but as I've got older my hobbies and the things I love have got broader.
Writing has always been my passion and my blog is something that I will always love. Sometimes in a relationship though you need to make changes that will satisfy you both and allow your relationship to grow to the next level, so I've made the decision to rebrand my blog. It is not a decision I've made lightly - rebranding will be a challenge, but I feel in order to grow and write about the things I truly love, I need to change direction.
In the next few weeks Forever Miss Vanity will be changing to What Jessica Loves (whatjessicaloves.com). The content will be the same as it has been, but the name change will be more suited to what I would like to write about rather than being typecast into the fashion and beauty realm - something I still want to be part of, but I also what to explore other topics such as travel, lifestyle and generally the things I love.
I hope you will join me on my journey.
