Okay, so I’m not as tech savvy and awesome as I originally anticipated. Okay, the bar was set pretty low to begin with, but that said, I’m still fairly surprised that I’m having as much trouble as I am with the launch of the new blog. That’s right, I’m no longer going to be posting on Couture for Curves. Rest assured, though, that all of my content is going to stay put, and I’m also shelling out the money to keep the domain name, at least for now.

But why did I change the name?
My blogging journey started with fashion. I wanted to figure out how I fit into the sartorial world—it’s tougher than it sounds, especially for a larger girl—curvy, plus-size, ample, voluptuous, fat, whatever adjective works for you. However, as time passed, I realized that I wanted to talk about more than fashion, and I didn’t feel that the name “Couture for Curves” allowed me to really expand the scope.
And so, after over a year of building up my Google page rank and getting in touch with people on various social media platforms, I decided to take the plunge and change the name of the blog.
You’re thinking, “She’s nuts,” right? Well, maybe I am. It wasn’t an easy decision to make, and not one my better half entirely agreed with, but after more than six months of it nagging at me, I felt that I just had to make the change.
Anyway, what are you going to find on the new blog? If you’re one of regular readers, no need to worry: You’ll still get to see my own outfits, clothes that I merely wish were mine, and fashion/beauty product reviews. Additionally, though, I’m going to be expanding into the fields of home improvement and do-it-yourself projects, recipes, random photos of whatever happened to catch my eye, movie and TV show reviews, travelogues, and whatever else might strike my fancy.
I hope you’ll follow me to the new blog, and if you do, please have patience while I get things up and running over there. I know it’s not pretty at the moment, but soon—I hope!—it will be. In the meantime, thanks so much for your patience and your support.
