new blog name & design + my 100th post!

Hello hello! 😍💛 wow I feel like it’s been forever since I wrote a post. (Actually it’s been more like a week 😂👏🏼 but I missed ya) and this is my 100th post! How awesome is that? 🥳

Welcome back to…! Wait! I can’t use my old name anymore 😦 you’ll find out why in this post though! 😍 read on!

I’m writing this post while on a car ride with my family! That’s why there are fun emojis and my writing style’s a little different 😂💕

1. name change

I have changed my blog name! It went from Chickadee Lover Maggie to… maggie’s doodles! I’m so excited about it! 😍💜 I wanted to change my blog name a few weeks ago, but I waited to do so until I had one I was really happy with. 💛 When I came up with this new one, I knew it was perfect! I bought the domain a few days ago, and since then I’ve been brainstorming for November’s content. BRUH it’s gonna allow me to transform what I post and stay current with my hobbies and interests 😎👏🏼

2. design renovation

YEAH!!! The theme has stayed the same but I’m slowly changing the color scheme and design! 😍💜 the little hearts background is so cute, and I’m going back to using pretty pastels instead of warm shades. I’m working on updating the home page and changing my blog button/signoff. For now you can see my new header, color palette, site icon, and home page!

3. inktober’s over!

I can’t believe iiiiiit! 😭 it was such an AWESOME experience and I loved creating every doodle! 🧡 Also the back stories I wrote were an encouragement to me too 😍 I have a little family of happy doodle people now! They have inspired me to keep on creating and also transform my blog to welcome more of them. You can already meet some new friends in this post! Incorporating doodles into the rest of my posts is gonna be epic, creative, and adorable. 🤩

4. other hobbies

Right after I shared my Living the Blogging Life launch post, and after scheduling the last week of #Inktober2020 posts, I was SO ready to take a blog break. 😂 So I did! I checked out a bunch of books from the library 📚 and spent time with some friends 💃🏻 and played a fun game on my phone! 📲 I’m really happy that this break helped me so much! 🥰 I didn’t actually want to take a break because I kept having post ideas. 😂 BUT I did what I needed, and I’m making a cheerful return today!

I don’t know yet what my updated content will include. I’m working on that with the general idea of making my posts more doodley! 😍💕

Thanks for reading! I can’t wait to catch up on reading you guys’ posts and hear about what you’ve been up to lately. 😄💜

What have you been up to lately? Let’s chat in the comments!
