Blog Name | Blogmas Day #1



Hello! So you may have noticed that I haven't been blogging all that much lately and I'm hoping to get into things with Blogmas (see below for more details!). However, a lot of things on my blog have changed and that's what this post is going to be about. I guess one of the biggest changes is my blog name, for maybe the last six months it's been "Just Poached" but the more I thought about it, the more I realised it really didn't have any connotations to do with what this blog is actually about. For that reason my blog name has changed to "ZigZagsAndHabiliments", "ZigZags" represents the lifestyle part of my blog and "Habiliments" is pretty much just a fancy word for "Garments" and represents the fashion and sewing side of the blog! Since the name of my blog changed I thought it would only be fitting to change the URL (zigzagsandhabiliments.blogspot.com) and, since all of my social media usernames were "justpoached" them as well. To be honest this has been a real pain and is part of the reason that I'm writing this post. On Bloglovin' you lose all of your followers if you change the URL of your blog and the only way to fix this is to contact them, something which I probably won't do (if you're interested in following me on Bloglovin' I'll leave a link to it and the rest of my social media accounts at the bottom of this post). The other site that hasn't been the easiest to make the switch on is Polyvore as you may or may not know they only allow you to change your username once. I'd already done this so I had to make a new account. All the items and sets that I previously made/liked are still on my old account but the only reason I used the sets was for fashion posts, all of which have remained in-tact. So the only difference the change in account has made, is that if you follow me on Polyvore you might want to follow my new account as my old one will be inactive.


Other than all that boring stuff I've changed the colours, font, header etc. on my blog and would really appreciate some feedback so feel free to leave a comment!

The final thing I have to say is that I've decided to do "Blogmas" if you aren't familiar with it, it's basically a post everyday of December until Christmas. I'm really excited about doing this as I feel like it'll be a good experience as well as an excuse to blog more, so if that interests you stay tuned and check back tomorrow for a new post!
