Turning a New Leaf

As I’m sure you’ve noticed my blog looks pretty different. The colors, the theme, THE NAME. I’ve been up to a lot the past couple of days pulling the blog rebrand together but I’m super pleased with how it turned out!

All of the old posts from Loitering Lion are still up on this version of my blog (even the superhero movie reviews that I posted back in 2011) although the posts I’ve done with playlists in them don’t work anymore since I can’t use that plug-in anymore.

I decided to change my blog up because a few weeks ago Loitering Lion was moved to a new server and a few days ago I finally sat down and took a look at the damage. All of my content was there but the theme, header, and styling was all gone. It would’ve been an easy fix but oddly enough I wasn’t torn apart by being faced with the bare bones of my blog. It was an opportunity for me to start fresh.

I started Loitering Lion when I was 16 and that’s when I came up with the logo and the vibe. Needless to say it was a bit outdated. I’m pretty much a completely different person now at 21 than I was at 16 and I feel like turning a new leaf with my blog reflects that. I’m still proud of the work I’ve done over the years with Loitering Lion which is why I’ve chosen to keep all of my old content up.

Along with my blog, my Tumblr.  page has been cleaned up (and I have to admit I’m a little obsessed with it at the moment), and my Twitter and Instagram pages have been caught up with the program too. My YouTube page needs to be tidied up but I’m working on that. The important part is that Strawberries and Peonies is all cleaned up and ready to go! Now all I need to do is get on with getting fresh content up.
