Thoughts on a Blog Rebrand

By Erynecarter06

I’ve been thinking about re-branding the blog. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE A Glimpse Into Eryn’s World. It will always be my first love. But as I grow up, I am closing in on 30 after all, I feel the blog should grow up with me.

It’s been a difficult process for me. I don’t think I’ve ever been truly happy with my blog design. I do like the one I’m currently using. It’s cleaner. Simpler. But I’m still not in love with it. I look at some of my fellow bloggers and love their clean, elegant looks. And then I look at mine and it looks like an amateur blogger. Which I am, but I don’t want to portray that. I want my blog to appear more professional and pretty. So pardon as I ramble to gather my thoughts, but this is the only way I know how to get to a decision.

My thoughts on doing a full redesign…

Name: The name will change. But, it’s not going to be to much of a stretch. If you follow my social media, then you know you can find me at itseryne on Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter. It seems like it would only make sense for the blog and Facebook to follow. Plus, it will be much easier to remember.

Design: I’m picky when it comes to design, but I know I want something with a white background, pretty fonts, and clean looking. With sidebar space. I’d like to begin monetizing the blog a bit more, so I would need the space to have ads. Preferably including some of my favorite colors; aquas and pinks, and some fun feminine fonts. Some blogs that I love, not only for reading, but their design are:

Content: This my friends will not be changing. This is a lifestyle blog, and I intend to keep writing about what I feel like writing. I don’t have a particular niche and I’m okay with that. This blog is 100% me and that’s exactly what I want the content to reflect.

What’s holding me back?

Well for starters, I’m finally seeing my traffic grow every day. And my fear of changing domains is that my traffic will take a major hit.

Also, the idea of essentially redoing my Bloglovin and BlogHer accounts. Also a challenge. They have both finally gotten established, and are beginning to grow as well. I’m not talking huge numbers, but I would have to re-establish a new domain and blog at both of those places.

What could I do?

Instead of jumping into an entire re-brand, I could start slow.

Keep the aglimpseintoerynsworld.com domain name, but begin using the header “its eryn e” on the blog, as well as change the Facebook page over. Eryn E was a nickname of mine growing up, so it at least all pairs well together.

I could work on finding a design I love. And giving the blog a brand new look. A look that’s clean and fresh, and really represents me.

Decisions decisions.

I’m thinking that keeping the same domain, changing the look, and updating the header name seems like the best idea.

What would you do? Have you ever gone through a blog rebrand and name change? How did you go about it? I’d love to know your thoughts!
