Changes for 2013 – excuse me while I’m getting ready!
UPDATE: Hopefully by now you’re seeing this content on the new domain. Please bear with me as I fix any final issues and start tweaking content to suit the new domain. But hopefully, you’ll be as happy as I am with this new home!
The start of a new year is a good time to make changes, so I’ve decided to do something that I probably should have done quite a while ago. As of some time this month or early next (depending on how quickly I can get all the boring technical stuff done) Big Girls Browse will be no more.
But don’t get too excited. I won’t be going far, and neither will my content. I’ll simply be moving everything over to GemmaCartwright.com and ditching this URL.
I’ve decided it’s time to lose the silly pun-based name that has, to be honest, caused me nothing but problems since I launched this blog. It’s time to stop trying to be a character and do what I should have done a very long time ago – be myself.
I will still be writing about all the stuff I do here, and all of Big Girls Browse’s three year archive will be following me over to my new blog. Even the layout won’t change very much, so if you are a fan of this site I hope you will continue to follow me at the new URL. Things like Frugal February and the Ways To Wear Challenge will continue in their new home too – apologies to those who entered the challenge in December, the round-up will be slightly postponed while I sort this out, but I haven’t forgotten you beautiful people!
By moving, I’m hoping I can broaden the appeal of the site and give myself a little more freedom to talk about stuff other than clothes for curves. There are so many things I want to share online, and it seems stupid to do it across multiple blogs, tumblrs and tweets when I could just do it all in one place. Under my own name I can and will still write about curvy clothing, DD+ lingerie, shapewear, retro dresses, killer swimwear and everything else this blog is known for. But I want to remove the restrictions of this site and its name so I can talk about other stuff I love – travel, sewing, recipes, films, beauty, hair, money saving and my favourite finds outside of the world of fashion.
I hope you’ll come with me when I move and enjoy all the new stuff to come, but if you don’t, I’d like to say thank you for all your support so far. I really love this blog, but it’s time for a change of pace – after all, I do turn 30 this year!
