Hello everyone, thank you for visiting if you’re new and welcome back if you’ve visited before! I am so happy to introduce my new blog. After giving it much thought I decided to start fresh, and bring my blog back from blog purgatory (bringing something back counts as starting fresh right?). I started CielNiteshade.com almost 2 years ago, it was my 3rd attempt at launching a blog, but I felt that I made a some mistakes and did not properly prepare, so I let it go… well kind of…
I wanted to start over again; and even though I kept the name I have removed all my old posts. So what else is different? Well a few things have changed, the most noticeable of course is the overall look and feel of the page.
I have also moved hosts from WordPress.com to BlueHost . You probably can’t tell but that is the biggest structural change I made here. The main reason I moved is because BlueHost allows more features of wordpress to be utilized; but even though WordPress.com is a bit more restrictive it is much much simpler to use!
The BlueHost wordpress installation requires a bit more technical knowledge, but it can make a huge difference in getting the results you want out of your site. The process of migrating was super simple too, they even provide a way for you to import all your posts from your old blogging platform! If you want to know how I was able to migrate everything over let me know in the comments below and I’ll write up all the steps I took to successfully move over. If you do want to get started with BlueHost i’d really love it if you use this link or the one above since it is my affiliate link and i’ll get some credit for helping you get started.
The other main thing I did was prepared a bit more this time around. I did a lot more planning, scheduling and really defined what I want this blog to be about. It’s a lifestyle and fashion blog! I was a bit all over the place with my other one but for this one I’ve decided what I really enjoy and will focus on! So these are my LifeStyle Diaries and I hope you will come back and join me!
