Change is a-Comin’ to Random Little Faves!

Change is good, right?  I like to think that it is…it’s a chance to take a different path and explore a new route.  This is why I’m so excited to announce that change is coming to Random Little Faves!

For the past couple of months, I’ve been a busy little bee behind the scenes.  You might’ve noticed that I haven’t been blogging quite as frequently as I used to, but that’s only temporary, I promise!  

I had to lighten the amount of posts I was working on to allow time for my big project.  And, today, I’m going to spill the beans and let you guys in what’s about to happen around here!

The Big News…

Random Little Faves is going to be reborn and relaunched….buttttt….not as Random Little Faves.

Say whattttt?

That’s right folks, it’s time to retire the name ‘Random Little Faves’ in favor of a new name and a new brand!

Now, don’t worry…all the great content on this blog isn’t going anywhere!  When my new site launches, all of this will be imported into that site so it’ll all still be there!  

Why the change?

When I first started Random Little Faves back in September 2013 my sole objective was to blog about products I loved.  I basically planned to do product review after product review with the goal of sharing random little things I loved in the hopes others might find some sort of joy in that.

Well…if you’ve been with me in the past 9 months or so, you know this is not what my blog is about now!  Sure, I do an occasional product review, but my focus and my voice have shifted dramatically.

And that, dear friends, is why I felt it was time for a change.  ‘Random Little Faves’ just doesn’t fit my blog anymore, nor does it align with where I want to take things.  

I’m not planning on changing my content, just continuing down this path I’ve been on but with more intent and purpose.  So, don’t worry, I’m not suddenly going to be writing about completely different topics…nope!

What’s Next?

I am getting close to being ready to launch my new site! Yay!  

I have the bulk of everything set up and ready to go.  The last piece is to import all my content from here and then start cleaning up my posts to get the aesthetics to align with my new brand.  That’s going to take a bit of work! 

To give myself the time to get all of that done and to tie up all of the loose ends, I’m not going to share any new posts the rest of this week or next week.  

But, I’m not going to go radio silent on you!  I’m going to reshare some old favorites….both yours and mine.  You might think of it as the highlight reel.  

It’ll also allow me to update you on the status of the launch of the new site.  So, you’ll be right there with me!

When does the new site go live?

 Saturday, August 1 

And on the day it goes live, we’re going to have a bit of a party!  

I’m going to host a giveaway with several prizes and I’ll be giving you a tour around the new site so you know what is what!

Are you excited!?! (probably not as much as I am, but that’s okay!)

And for all of my email subscribers…be on the lookout later this week for a special email from me with more details that pertain to you.  I have some exciting news to share with you guys that I hope you’ll be super excited about!

How about a sneak peek?

Since you asked nicely…I suppose I can give you a little peek at what’s to come…

Stay tuned, friends!  More news to come in the upcoming days!

    That’s exciting! You’re the kind of blogger that seems to know what she’s doing, I’m sure it will look good! I also went through that process and I know the hard work that goes into it. Every little detail take up so much time, it’s crazy! My new blog went live today and I’m so excited to see if I get a good response. Good luck :)

    Yay! That is awesome! I think rebrands are awesome because it’s like taking the plunge and doing what you know is right. Starting fresh is so powerful. Good luck!

      Aww..Erin, thanks so much! I’m hoping to get done sooner than August 1st, but I have a feeling all the ‘little’ things I have left will take me longer than I’m anticipating, but I do feel Aug 1 is totally achievable!!

    Super cool. I started the same way with my blog…and headed into a completely different direction, therefore changing my brand & name to fit the journey I was on. I can totally relate to this and am excited to see your new reveal!

      Thanks Shayne! Your words mean so much…it was a tough decision to decide to change the name of my website, but I know it’s the right move :). Glad to hear you went through something similar and it worked out well! :)
