Today is the day, a very good day, a very special day ,the first official day in which Leather Jacket Foxes becomes a live running site on the inter webs! I am beyond excited, and a little bit nervous! I think that’s because for the last few months I have been plotting, dreaming, rethinking, reimagining, designing, and conceptualizing all that Leather Jacket Foxes could be!
And just knowing that I have the honor of sharing it with you, leaves me feeling humbled knowing that potentially a word or two, or a full post could potentially impact your life in some way, shape or form!
WHY THE CHANGE?
Some of you may remember that I used to blog under the name Miss Cass Lee. I started that blog with the intentions of inspiring other women in a similar season of life. And I did not know or begin to realize how much I would fall in love with writing, through to the meeting and the encouraging of women via the online platform. The Miss Cass Lee blog grew, I grew, and I felt almost as if I needed to start or create a new fresh space that had the potential to grow and sustain the vision I felt on my heart. Then at the end of last year, my Miss Cass Lee blog was hacked, everything on there was ruined. Funny enough, I dealt with it rather well, and decided to take a long break from blogging.
It was so amazing to press pause for a moment, and to reflect on things for a bit. Being quiet, as in being blogging quiet, encouraged me to regroup creatively, because I wasn’t worried about the planning of posts, through to the editing of them, through to the marketing strategizing through to the increasing of stats! All those technical aspects of blogging are so great, and are so needed, but it can be a bit all consuming and distracting, and it can cause stress and tension which can negatively impact on the way you create content. Being quiet online, encouraged me to read other blogs, and to observe what the readers were saying. I observed how other bloggers styled their brands through to the way they expressed themselves in their content. It inspired me so much so, that I started dreaming again with blogging. I felt this stir in my spirit to use what’s in my hand and in my heart and to pour it out online, as a means of empowering and inspiring other women!
For my old readers from the Miss Cass Lee community, you will be glad to know that we will still explore content from pregnancy to parenting, plus of course we will have gorgeous giveaways and spoils! However, Leather Jacket Foxes will feature new content that delves into lifestyle, creative , entrepreneurial , decor, food and a few extra fun surprises that I can’t touch on just yet! Basically in a nutshell, content that inspires creativity, as well as empowers you the reader! So take a moment to explore the site , and let us know what you think! We would love to know, because we value our readers input!
PS : How gorgeous are these images of our little family taken by our very talented friend Nicolette Kapp! She is seriously gifted, and has an amazing eye for detail, plus she has a killer sense of humor, which is so needed when shooting our little family!
