For those of you that know me, you’d know that I had a blog called “Our Flavourful Life”…the poor thing didn’t even last a year!
I started that blog on a cold day in late July in Johannesburg while I was at home, sick with the flu and bored out of my mind.
Fast forward a year and I’m sitting in London, and it is HOT! A year ago I wouldn’t have pictured myself here, but here I am, you’ve gotta grab opportunities as they arise you know!
So why a new blog? Well, the old one just didn’t fit me anymore, I didn’t like the name that much anymore, it felt so… impersonal. It’s hard to write a blog about “Our” life when I’m really only writing about me, what I like, and things I do, Riaan was only mentioned now and again, which he seemed to prefer. I think all of this added to the feeling that I needed a fresh start, a clean slate and something that was “more like me”.
So for the last couple of weeks the old blog has been very quiet, while I’ve been very busy – I switched jobs, wrote exams and I brainstormed for a new blog name.
It’s been about 2 weeks now since I started working on the design for Simply Simoné and I’m really excited because I did it all myself (there was A LOT of googling involved!), and when I couldn’t find what I needed on google and I figured things out myself, little squeals of delight would escape me (insert fistpump here) – Riaan found this very amusing because I was getting excited about programming! (That’s so not me!)
Oh and for those of you that don’t know me, Hi! Stop by my about me page, or check back in a few days to see what I’ve been up to!
I look forward to filling these pages with my life, and the things that I love. Hopefully you will find it as enjoyable as I do.
