Hey there, welcome to my new and improved blog sophialeigh.net. I’m so excited to get this going again!
Sophia Leigh has been my blog since September of 2016; I started off with a free blog website you may have been following me as “imsophialeigh.wordpress.com”. I started my blog as a hobby, something to do in my gap year to pass the time and to just share with people my journey through veganism but it soon became more than just a pastime. I fell in love with blogging. Joining the blogging community on Twitter a few months after starting up my blog and growing my little space on the internet I started to learn a lot more about myself and gain some amazing friends, now I am trying to grow my blog even further with a fresh new start. I’m buzzing for the adventure, working on my content, upping my photography game and working with my favourite brands and bloggers.
Buying my own URL was scary don’t get me wrong, my anxiety started rising again. Despite the anxiousness I was feeling the past few days, the URL sophialeigh.net is now mines, HECK YEAH! This is just so amazing to me. I am so so happy to start building my very own brand up.
I couldn’t have got everything up and running the way I wanted it without the help of Selfhosted.co; I may have an A Level in IT but I am terrible with all the technical work so I passed over the difficult job to the experts. I had absolute control over the layout of my blog and what changes I wanted made. The technical team at SelfHosted.co did all the hard work, from installing software and transferring all my posts over to the new URL. The beauties themselves! I loved how quickly they got everything up and running, definitely big kudos to the team at selfhosted.co for everything. I would suggest you seek their help if you setting up your own website but are like me and clueless with technology; they really help a lot.
So what’s new?
Mostly everything will be the same; content on the same lines as before just more of it. I’m hoping to get more blogging done possibly about twice a week if I can with my caring job, university plans, and writing gigs it could get a lot but I plan to make my blogging more of a priority since I have kind of let it down the past few months. No pressure Leigh! I will be making my content shorter with more photos but there will also be longer more informative topics related to veganism & environmental issues which I had been lacking over on my old URL. Photography is something I have been working on a lot recently, my Instagram feed can show that. I am truly trying to step up my game.
I have included links to my most popular posts on the sidebar for easier access to the content you all really enjoy; it also helps me see what you enjoy to read on my site and I will aim to write more of the same type of content. My Instagram feed is located on my site TWICE, yes twice because why not follow me plus I am really loving my feed right now.
Categories and archives are also located on the sidebar for easy access to posts I have created. I’ve also left some room for advertising- if you are a brand or blog looking to be advertised I am happy to assist with that and add you to my site just get in contact with me. There are also a few new pages including a work with me page and a updated contact form.
This was just a short introduction to my new site, to let you all know I have made the move and I would really appreciate it if you would follow this new blog and support me in my new adventure. Much love to all of you, and I hope you enjoy my new site as much as I adore it.
