As you may have noticed, Work It Girl has had a little make-over. I say little, it’s been totally transformed into Pale + Interesting.
I’m not entirely sure why, but Work It Girl just didn’t feel right anymore. When I first started my blog 8 months ago, I had no idea what direction it would go in. I still don’t really know where it’s going, but what I do know is that it’s about me. I’ve learnt that building a blog is almost like creating a brand around yourself. I love all aspects of creating a brand, from thinking of a name to designing a logo but when it comes to branding myself, it’s very different. I know who I am and what I like but goodness knows what that looks like on paper! It’s daunting enough putting yourself out there via blogging without having to decide how the look and feel of a website will communicate who you are.
I originally chose Work It Girl as a name thinking that it was a way of following my journey into the real world after graduating, living in London and climbing the career ladder. However, as I’ve recently realised that I probably won’t be doing it the ‘normal’ way, I decided to change my blog name as a reflection of the changes I’m making in my personal life. That’s how Pale + Interesting was born. This blog is about me and I’m most definitely pale – as for the interesting part, you can decide that for yourself! I’ll be the first to admit that I’ll do anything to avoid change, the unknown can be really scary but sometimes change is inevitable and for the best. This change is intrinsic to the evolution of, not only me as a blogger, but as a person.
Sorry for the slightly deeper, more philosophical post that usual, I just didn’t feel I could make such a big change to the blog without explaining why (other than the fact that it looks prettier!) I hope you embrace the changes and enjoy the new blog. Welcome to Pale + Interesting.
