I thought I would pop on and do a quick post to let everyone know that it’s all change at Cupcakes and Cadenzas. Those of you who have followed the blog for a while will notice over the coming weeks that the look, feel and content of the blog is changing slightly. This is because I want to start transforming Cupcakes and Cadenzas into the ‘lifestyle/magazine’ style of blog that I actually intended it to be when I started it four years ago.
After I had been blogging for a while I became convinced by articles that I read and by other (bigger) bloggers, that niche blogs were the only way forward and, because of this, I took a step back, convinced that I was going about blogging in all the ‘wrong’ ways. I allowed myself to be pushed and pulled in so many directions that I eventually became really quite disillusioned with blogging and, on several occasions, almost gave up completely. Luckily though, in my heart of hearts, I knew that there was a place for Cupcakes and Cadenzas in the blogosphere and I decided to stick with it albeit in a very scaled down way; but stick with it I did and I’m finally convinced that I now know the direction it needs to go in for me to achieve what I want to achieve from blogging and, as a result, I feel more focussed and motivated by it than I’ve felt in a very long time.
So, Cupcakes and Cadenzas is now taking on the mantle of a lifestyle/magazine blog and will be filled with inspiration, encouragement and a whole heap of other stuff for anyone who wants to live a better, more positive, productive life. I want it to be a blog where you can grab a cuppa, pull up a chair and browse the site knowing that you’ll find a little bit of motivation to help you through your day
Underneath the header you will see the main categories that will be covered. Lesser categories can still be found by checking out the ‘categories’ drop-down menu in the right-hand sidebar or by using the ‘search’ facility at the top of the sidebar. Some of the categories under the header have nothing posted in them…yet…but that will change over the coming weeks.
