I feel like I haven’t posted in forever! But, while I haven’t been posting, I have been working behind the scenes! I’ve got some exciting posts planned for this blog, but first — as you already know from the title of this post — I have some big news to share.
I will be renaming — or rebranding — this blog! 🙂
I’m sure you are full of questions, so I will try my best to answer them thoroughly in this post. But if I have missed a question, please leave it in the comments below and I’ll answer it. 🙂
Why Am I Renaming the Blog?
There are several reasons for this. The biggest one, though, is that the niche for my blog has changed drastically in the past year. When I decided on the name Legacy of a Writer, I was exclusively devoted to reviewing books. About a year ago, however, my schedule started to prohibit my ability to read often. So I started blogging about other stuff — other products, games, makeup, and skincare. As I went through Cosmetology school, I really grew a passion and enthusiasm for makeup.
With my love for beauty and a desire to bring you guys more reviews and tutorials on makeup, I feel my blog title isn’t really accurate anymore. I don’t want to confuse my readers or the companies I work with by saying I blog about beauty and my title suggests reading.
Another big reason for changing my blog — and more specifically my URL — is because I recently got married and no longer have my maiden name. I am not really sure what I was thinking when I picked my maiden name as my blog URL — *palms forehead* — ah well, who knows! But since I am going to be changing my blog name, I thought it was a good time to change the URL as well. 🙂
Does that make sense? If you’ve become a recent beauty follower, let me know if you had similar thoughts when you subscribed to my blog. Did it confuse you? Make you wonder?
Will the Changes Effect My Followers?
No. I’ve been doing a lot of research and reading up on this (one of the reasons I’ve been absent for so long), and I believe I can change it without it effecting you at all. 🙂
Of course, I will have a new website URL, so you would need to update any bookmarks you have set up…or just remember the new URL. 🙂 But if you’re a follower of my blog, you should still remain a follower of this blog and get the email subscriptions (if you are signed up for that).
What Will the New Blog Name Be?
That is where you come in — my awesome followers! 🙂
I have a couple ideas in my head for a blog name, but none that stand out from the rest. So I want to make you all a part of this transition! Give me some ideas for a blog name. Tell me what you think my blog name should be!
My blog objective will be to bring you reviews, tutorials, and hauls of skincare, makeup, and other products. These will be things that I would personally use in my own skincare or makeup routine — so, reviews to you that are from my ‘vanity’ or ‘beauty room’, so to speak. 🙂
So please leave your comments! If you have just one suggestion for my blog name, or if you have a hundred suggestions, leave them below! 🙂
There’s a Giveaway Going On?
Yep! I thought this would be a fun way to celebrate my announcement! As usual, all you have to do is enter in the Rafflecopter form below. But don’t wait — this giveaway ends in one week! Rules for this giveaway are at the bottom of the form — in short, though, USA only, must be a follower, and must be 18 years or older. 🙂 The giveaway form will close on Sunday, August 3rd, at midnight.
What’s the prize? Well, it’s an assortment of makeup! They are all full size products (except for the fragrance) that are brand new. I originally swatched the NYX eyeshadow palette, but it’s in perfect condition and has been disinfected, so all good!
I’ve listed all the products in the form below, but the total value of this makeup bundle comes to around $70! (I don’t know the exact price, because two products are not sold in the US.)
Thanks for all your love and support! I’m really excited to be rebranding my blog and renaming it. I can’t wait to share my passion with you all! 🙂 Thanks for being such an awesome group of followers! I love reading your comments!
