Blog Upgrade | Exciting New Beginnings

Aaand, I’m back with a brand new look, updates and so on. Welcome to my blog upgrade post! I usually don’t like to talk/write about this kind of stuff, but this blog upgrade is quite huge and I’ve been dreaming about it for a very long time.

I’ve made my first blog in 2009, as far as I can remember and I deleted it after a few months. One year and a half later, I started *janded, which was a completely random corner of the internet. I was not able to find a niche, because I love writing and spreading the word about a lot of things. I’ve abandoned this blog so, so many times. Until this year when I got my shit together and I took my little corner of the internet more seriously. I’ve started reading lots of articles, and being a marketing enthusiastic and specialist at the same time, it made my work easier.

So without no further ado, let’s see what’s new around here!

Blog Upgrade #1: New theme!

If you’ve visited my little corner of randomness, you have probably noticed that it has a new theme. The theme is called Rose and is a premium theme. Yes! After so many years spend around the blogosphere  I got the balls to invest in a premium wordpress theme. And I absolutely adore it. It is nice and clean and I hope it you’ll make your experience around here more pleasant.

Blog Upgrade #2: We have a newsletter!

Yay! You can subscribe now to get updates of the latest blog posts around here.

Blog Upgrade #3: E-mail address

We can also get in touch via e-mail now, because I finally managed to create an e-mail account for the contact section. We can chat through hello@janded.eu now as well, not just the contact form.

I’ve also been updating some small things like the instagram in the footer and so on. Small changes that you probably don’t notice, but since I’m a perfectionist, I had to make them.

There are still some things to work around, but for now I am in love with my blog upgrade and I am proud and happy I decided to make it!

There are lots of articles, collabs (yay!) pictures,  newsletters on their way, so make sure you stick around for some randomly creativeness & inspiration.

Also lots of thanks to the two amazing people who helped me personalize the theme and created a new logo suited to the new, simple yet elegant blog theme.

Let me know what you think about this blog upgrade and maybe share with me your blog upgrade story a well.
