As you know, I graduated from high school this year and I will be starting my freshman year of college next month. I have definitely changed during these past two years, and my life is about to change drastically when I move away from home. I decided that I needed a fresh start - a new blog with a new focus and brand. I needed to take everything I had learned from the past two years and put it into a new blog where I could share this new chapter in my life. And thus, Simply Shelby was born.
Depending on how hectic my life becomes in college, I plan to post 1-2 times per week about topics such as my daily life, college tips, style, and beauty. I've spent the entire month of July putting this blog together, and I'm really quite proud of what I've created. I would love nothing more than if you stopped by to take a look at it and leave a comment! If you like what you see, you can follow me through GFC or Bloglovin. My facebook and twitter pages will be the same, so you don't have to like/follow new accounts. Also, if you have me in your contacts, my new email is email@example.com.
I will no longer be posting here at Chasing Birdies, so this feels like such a bittersweet goodbye. I love my new blog and the new focus I have, but this has also been a special place for me during the past two years. I know that I will most likely lose hundreds of followers by switching over like this, but numbers don't really matter to me anymore. But I do care about you guys. I care that so many of you take the time to read my posts and leave comments, and I truly hope you do the same now that I'm moving to a new location. I really do read every comment, and (assuming you're not a no-comment blogger) I reply to every one.
This is a time of new beginnings for me, both in real life and in the blogging community. I hope you decide to join me on this journey!
