Goodbye The Shelley Diaries, Hello!

Hello and welcome to my new website –! The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed me changing my social media handles over (@shelleybethblog) ready for the big change! After four years of blogging over at The Shelley Diaries and a year or so of not feeling proud of my blog and being frustrated at blogger I decided to be brave and go self hosted.

Welcome to

I decided to do the easy route of making the switch and letting Pipdig take care of it. With working full-time and life things, I felt like it was too much to do alone and I can say it was 100% worth spending the money! Pipdig have an amazing service where they switch you from one platform to another and install a new template for £85. All you need to do is purchase hosting and set that up which is really quick and simple – I managed to do mine on my lunch break. You then wait up to five days for your new site to go live, (mine took three I think) and then it’s time for you to play around with it! That’s the hard part for me because I have four-years worth of posts to sit and go through. Four years ago blogging wasn’t really the thing it was now. I didn’t bother looking at SEO, links etc but that’s expected now – so this is where the hard work begins!

What to expect from

You’ll get a more polished version of the usual, fashion, beauty, lifestyle and food content. Hopefully you’ll get a whole lot more Norwich too as I’ve been a bit slack on the Love Norfolk Series and perhaps a bit more social commentary if I’m feeling brave! I’m determined to make something that I’m really proud of and I’m going to pour as much energy into it as possible. I really want to improve my photography too so I’m going to be looking at getting a proper camera too.

But for now Welcome to – enjoy the ride!
