For those of you that don’t know, I’ve been running two blogs since January. After a year of blogging at The Blogging Brew, I’d decided I wanted to share about more than just blogging tips, so I created this blog as a more casual environment to share college and lifestyle posts. Well, pretty soon after that I realized I loved these new topics, and The Blogging Brew wasn’t even on my mind anymore. I had almost 100 posts just sitting there, and I was always finding myself referring to them when my readers here would email me for blogging tips, so I finally decided to merge the two blogs!
For me, that means I don’t have to promote/email/blog under two names, which was getting super confusing! For y’all, this merge means a ton of blogging tips have been added to the JessicaSlaughter.co blogging archives! I also updated the navigation bar to make it easier for y’all to find posts.
With a blog merge comes a ton of time spent updating posts, creating new graphics, making sure links redirect correctly (I think I spent 5 hours setting up all the 301 redirects!), and overall unifying my online presence. So if you find something that doesn’t look right, or takes you to a weird page, feel free to let me know in the comments or by email!! I’m hoping to have everything updated by the end of the week!
If you’re interested in seeing what’s new, here’s a list of all the posts that have been added!
