I can’t believe 2016 is behind us and 2017 is here. I love the start of the year. I love seeing people find their passion again and make plans to act on. I love the excitement a new year brings which brings me to today’s post a New Year, New Site.
Let’s start off with Welcoming 2017 in with a bang. Scream, shout, jump up and down whatever makes you happy. Start 2017 off right by being yourself and merely happy.
Now to the fun part! Did you notice anything different when you came to the site? Over the holidays I completely rebranded The Lavender Hytta. Some might wonder why I did it seeing as my site wasn’t even a year old. However, I was never in love with my branding I just wanted to get my dream off the ground. Now my passion has continued to grow for my readers and for the love of what I do it was time to have a brand and look I loved.
Redoing the branding for The Lavender Hytta was no easy feat. Matter of fact sees this notebook it has been my constant companion for probably the past three months. It has all of my likes, dislikes, and thoughts about what this site should be and shouldn’t be.
The new Lavender Hytta
I hope you stay around to check things out… However, let me point a few things out to you.
Blog Categories: All of our articles now fall into one of six categories: They are:
- BODY (Outdoors, Nature, Fitness, Yoga, Herbalism, Holistic Health, Essential Oils)
- FOOD (Recipes, Nutrition)
- HEART (Family, Parenting, Motherhood, Marriage, Relationships)
- LIFE (Home, Money, DIY, Gardening, Natural Beauty)
- MIND (Product Reviews, Books)
- SOUL (Meditation, Mindfulness, Self Love, Journaling)
These blog categories are listed at the very top of our new site. They are right next to our new social media icons. If you don’t already follow us make sure you check out those as well.
Secondly, I have introduced a freebie library. To get access, you just need to subscribe to the site. I will continue to add new items throughout the year.
One thing that I want to point out that isn’t on the site yet but that will be coming soon is Our Shop! Yes, that is right we will have our very own store! It will be a mixture of items. Some items will be from other sites that are my favorites, but I will be introducing my products (bath salts, tinctures, and more) and printables. I am very excited about all of the possibilities to come!
Tagline, Mission & Values
Rebranding a site makes you think a lot… I find my favorite way to “think” is to write hence the entire notebook for my site. While I was writing our new tagline, mission and values smoothly flowed from my thoughts to the paper.
I want to share these with you, so you know what The Lavender Hytta is all about.
