You may have noticed some changes around here. After 3 years of blogging, I made the decision to do a rebrand. I am No Shrinking Violet was started as a reaction to fight the power in a sense to those who used to mock my shape. My first post was very different to what you see now. I ain’t about that life anymore. After a year or so, I began writing up on travel and lifestyle topics. My blog wasn’t based on just fashion anymore. Finally, having Jasper last year meant I wanted to include him in my posts. I realised my blog was becoming more about my life, rather than just my style. I wanted my title to reflect this. I have rebranded to Violet Glenton.
I rebranded from I am No Shrinking Violet to my name, Violet Glenton in an effort to continue to improvements I’ve been trying to make. I finally took my blog self hosted, and with the help of Phil at PipDig the transition has been pretty smooth. I’d highly recommend getting some help if you’re thinking of a rebrand.
I’m aware I now have to start from scratch, build everything up again but it’s a challenge I accept. It will allow me to pitch myself better to brands, build more on the name and grow more.
In other logical ways, Violet Glenton just seems to fit better. Pitching a brand and stating my blog title always seemed a little long. I couldn’t be just No Shrinking Violet thanks to a antiques store that holds the domain. All of my social channels are under Violet Glenton so now at least there is some consistence.
I really do hope you love the rebrand and I hope you’ll follow me on this journey :-).
Do you like the rebrand?
