Welcome to the new site—it is about time! Better late than never! I have been running the blog for 2 years and wanted something to mark my 100+ published posts—I had hoped the site would be ready by the blogversary but this is even better. Coming up with content can be challenging, I don’t sit behind my computer on a whim typing away. Every post over the years has had great thought, research and time behind it. I take pride in taking the pictures myself, and choosing the ones that I actually publish. This also gives me time to practice taking better photos and also ensuring that regardless of your internet connection , wherever you are in the world—you are able to view the photos.
Donnasmélange has become my little e-zine where I share content on life, food, travel and podcasts. I am currently working on some material for the podcasts as well. They will roll out by September, some will be live while others will be pre-recorded.
2016 has been a year of great change with more downs than ups. With all the craziness happening in the world, you kinda wonder what has happened to humanity.
Being away from the blogosphere has also given me time to reflect the direction that I want to take Donnasmélange. I have gotten messages on how some of the articles I have written have helped and inspired people to live out their dreams, these stories warm my heart. Sometimes when I post, I am not sure how people will take what I say, will it inspire? Will it offend? Funny enough, the ones I feared posting the most are the ones that people related to most. I decided 2016 it is time to leave my comfort zone and life has been from a bats view but that’s okay.
A lot has happened and continues to happen: if there’s anything I have learnt this year, things do not turn how you want them to. Therefore I have learnt to take things as they come and relish in the moment. Once a moment is gone you can not reclaim it!
There will be changes on the side of the blog especially on how posts are published and connected. You will find out about all of that in due time. Enjoy the new look! A huge thank you to the team that helped me with the site but most of all thank you so much to my old subscribers who have stuck with me from the beginning, when it was just a thing, a mere idea. Another big thanks to the new subscribers for taking on this journey with me.
For those of you new to this be sure to subscribe for updates, have a look at my OLD POSTS and look out on the site for details and changes.
What has been your greatest change in 2016?
Have a fabulous rest of the day!
See you on the internet somewhere!
