I just wanted to drop a fast note right here to introduce the revamped Even though I’m Young! I’ve been working with an awesome designer to get this web page hunting precisely the way I want it and I couldn’t be a lot more pleased with the final results. What do you believe?
This is anything I’ve wanted to do for completely ages and I’m so pleased I took the plunge and invested in a experienced redesign for my weblog. Even though I’m Young has been going for about seven years and I’ve normally utilised inexpensive, 1-size-fits-all themes but I identified them restrictive and it was holding me back from diving in to all the distinct items I wanted to do with the web page. For ages, I felt it just looked a bit blah and as well related to each and every other weblog on the net.
I’m so satisfied that Even though I’m Young now appears a bit a lot more grown-up and experienced. Following all, this weblog has matured with me. I’m surely a tad a lot more sophisticated than the girl who utilised to create about losing her footwear in Cambodia and puking off the back of a motorbike in Thailand. My trips have evolved given that then and I hardly ever do questionable items ‘just for the story’ these days, so I figured my weblog really should reflect my adult self. Even though I’m Young has gone by way of numerous alterations more than the years, but none have conveyed what this web page is all about rather as effectively as I’d have liked. Till now!
Performing this redesign has actually produced me believe about what path I want to take with Even though I’m Young so it has been a important exercising. I’ve attempted to summarise what my aims are and who this weblog is for more than on my attractive new About web page, if you fancy a study. In addition to the beautiful new pink appear and really feel, I’ve worked with my fabulous designer Cat from Gatto Net (who I extremely propose if you are considering about investing in a slick new design and style), to add some new attributes. I’d be thrilled if you wanted to stick about for a though and verify all the new stuff out!
Aside from my fairly new homepage which actually shows off the most important subjects I cover, I’ve got a swish new clickable map so you can see all of the content material for any location that I’ve visited and written about. Just click on the nation you are interested in (or pick out a continent from the prime of the web page) and you will be taken to a web page with all of the relevant weblog posts.
There’s a new landing web page for all of my travel ideas, and a handy web page exactly where you can shop my Instagram. I’ll be adding to this web page as Spring moves into complete swing, mainly because I’ll be updating my wardrobe with a handful of crucial seasonal pieces.
A single of the new additions I’m most excited about is the super helpful web page with all of my go-to web sites for trip preparing. I’m normally asked how I handle to locate very good travel bargains and what web sites I propose for preparing and booking journeys, accommodation and tours and so on so I figured it tends to make sense to have 1 web page with all of my most-utilised web sites. Bookmark my Travel Sources web page and use it locate good bargains on your subsequent trip!
I’ve also added a greater section on the homepage to show off my Youtube videos. Despite the fact that my weblog will normally be my most important gal, I actually appreciate creating travel vlogs and obtaining utilised to seeing my tiny peahead on the screen has really performed wonders for my self-acceptance. I went by way of a phase exactly where I wasn’t positive that Youtube was actually worth the work (it requires me forever to edit videos!) so I sort of abandoned my channel for a though. But then I checked it 1 day and realised my Marrakech vlog had somehow racked up more than eight,000 views! Not terrible for a tiny channel with significantly less than 300 subscribers. So yeah, I’ll be selecting up my GoPro on my subsequent trip…
You may well have noticed that items have been a bit slow on the weblog lately mainly because I’ve prioritised other projects (god getting an adult is dull), but I’m actually excited to lastly have Even though I’m Young hunting how I want it, and I’m bursting with concepts once more. I’ve also got a handful of trips planned so there will be a lot of new travel content material coming quickly. If you comply with me on Instagram you will know I’m not extended back from Warsaw, so retain an eye out (or sign up to my mailing list) for posts about that trip.
I’m also off to Italy for a spot of wedding venue purchasing at the finish of the month! How fancy does that sound? I imply, I’ve currently paid a hefty deposit so there’s not significantly I can do if I do not like the venue we’ve selected (except cry, throw tantrums, make Tom rue the day he proposed)…
Fingers crossed it is all as beautiful as we’re expecting it to be!
You may possibly have observed my 1st post about locating our venue in Italy, and I’ll be adding a lot more to my Location Wedding section as we move forward with the preparing approach. It almost certainly will not be fascinating for all of you, but hopefully it will assistance any one else who is preparing a wedding abroad.
I’d completely like to hear what you believe about Even though I’m Young’s new appear, so please let me know in a comment or on Instagram. Or Twitter. Or Facebook. I like to retain all bases covered.
