What's Next for

What's Next for
Over the past month, I've had a lot of time to reflect. It's been a busy one but I've caught up with old friends, hung out with new ones, explored ways to further my career and delved into topics from my past, that I can finally put to bed. Somewhere between having a great summer and thinking about all of these different things, it occurred to me that it had been a while since I thought about what I wanted for my blog.

I started this blog in 2016, the spring after we bought our house. It was a place where I could share photos and talk about things that, quite frankly, my other half was tired of hearing. In the beginning, I never thought much about it - Like most people, I didn't expect anyone to see it, let alone have people who actually read it and engage. For me, it's still absolutely incredible.

Since the joining online world my blog has turned from a side hobby that, truthfully, I forgot about more than I remembered into something I'm really proud of. In a sense, it's grown with me and so, naturally, the things I want to talk about differ somewhat from those early posts and the diary style content I used to enjoy writing. 

So what's next?

Well first things first, I've cleared up my categories. It's not a major change but it's going to help me label posts better and you to navigate them easier. Of course, the three main categories will still be Beauty, Travel and Lifestyle but within those, you'll find posts more defined but not so much that they're buried away. 

The Beauty category is broken down into Hair, Skincare and Makeup. Travel is now split into Beach Escape, City Break and Travel Tips and Lifestyle is divided into Advice, Career, Reflection and Relationships. 

I finalised these just yesterday but I'm already excited and inspired to create content for that finally fits somewhere I'm happy with - Not between 26 categories, 13 of which I don't use.

I want to take ItsHollieAnn in the direction of being helpful and informative as well as being somewhere I can share my personal thoughts, feelings and experiences. I want to be able to talk about everything from great skincare finds to enhancing your career right the way through to dating and relationships - Something I've not delved into before.

As far as changing name and theme, I'm going to keep things as they are. is appropriately named because that's exactly what it is. It's me. With regards to the theme, for now I'm happy but in the near future, I want to opt for something easy to navigate and even more user friendly. 

If you made it this far, thank you for reading. I hope you're as excited as I am x
