Update & Upcoming Changes

Dearest darlingest Momsie & Popsicle (if you get this reference, then we are immediately friends!),

There’s been some confusion over…. where I have been (see what I did there.. Wicked, eh?!) comes a time when saying ‘the last time I blogged was last year’ is really not as funny as it sounded in my head. In fact, it’s even less hilarious when I see it written down. This is just a quick update to let you all know that, yes, I made it to 2015 along with the rest of you. I took a break from the internet for a while. And by break I mean I drastically reduced the amount of time I spent aimlessly wandering around the web to spend time on things that make my soul happy, like reading, planning and making lists!


Speaking of lists – here’s my update in clear, concise, point format:

Update #1. CharSpillane.com will be undergoing some changes over the next couple of weeks in both minor and major sense of the word. I’m getting bored, and it’s time to shake things up a bit by also adding some sort of structure to this little blog of mine.

Update #2. With the aforementioned organisation and structure comes new posts on new topics that are of interest to me. My blog is a bit higgledy piggledy. I post what I feel like, when I feel like it. I’ve never wanted to be put into a box when it comes to writing – i.e travel blogger, beauty blogger, food blogger, happiness blogger(?!?) – and some topics I tend to stay away from because I’m terrified of the response I may or may not get. They say do something every day that scares you, and this is a motto I’m willing to live by in 2015. Get ready for some new content!

Update #3. I am gradually moving towards self-hosting, but I am nowhere near it just yet. I really don’t feel like paying someone to do it all for me when I can just as easily do it myself. Right now I’m afraid that I don’t have the knowledge to do so – so I have been educating myself! And this education has spiralled into me taking some fantastic free courses from Stanford and MIT in computer science & programming, but I digress. If you have written any posts about moving from wordpress.com to self-hosting please leave them in the comments down below. I’m going to need all the help I can get!!

And that’s pretty much it. While I am working on making this blog more aesthetically pleasing, content rich and reader friendly, please let me know if there anything that you would like to see me post about? What kind of posts do you live reading the most? Which posts do you get that disappointed feeling in your gut when you see them pop up on your reader? Lemme know!

Big thumbs up for CHANGE and trying something new!

  1. I’ve been going through all of those though processes as well. PS: There may be an email coming towards you in the near future in reference to something you said in the last email to me. I’ve put some serious thought into it, and now’s come the time to act. Peace, Love, Travel, and Cheers.

  2. I’ve been attempting to do the self-hosting thing as well, it’s been so much work trying to figure it all out and learn enough to make it work that my blog is almost not fun anymore… yikes! Best of luck with transitioning to your ideal place, I look forward to seeing the changes as they occur!! ❤
