After 3 years of exciting adventures under the blog name ‘Lovepuffin Travel Blog’, the time has come to make a change, and so from today I’ll be blogging under the name ‘A Life of More’.
Why the change?
Back in 2013 I opened my laptop and decided to start a little travel blog to keep family and friends up to date with my travels (and lets face it, whatever else I happened to be thinking about at the time). I chose the name ‘Lovepuffin’ as an obvious choice since that’s my nickname amongst friends and I thought it was cute and different.
I wasn’t exactly sure what it was going to be, and I certainly had no expectations that I would find an audience of keen travellers who would share in my joy for exploring. I chose the strapline ‘Adventure for the Unadventurous’ to characterise what travelling with me was like… Adventure, but within everyone’s reach (and the odd injury along the way of course).
Fast forward 3 years and the blog has grown into something I’m really proud of, but as I’ve got older, I’ve started to change the way I travel. No longer am I keen to throw myself out of a plane or off a bridge for the hell of it.
Since travelling non stop for a year, I’ve found myself enjoying lots of broader experiences which I don’t feel that Lovepuffin is the right setting for. I’ve discovered new loves for health and wellness (remember when I practiced yoga in India or spent nearly 6 weeks at a fitness camp?), for tech and travel gear and for reading a good book. I’ve also learned a lot along the way about blogging, and feel it would be a shame not to share that with everybody.
What does it mean for me, the reader?
I’m still me, so nothing is changing beyond recognition, but I wanted to create a space where I can talk more broadly about the things I love. As well as travel, you’ll also now find content on living (otherwise known as lifestyle) and blogging. I’ve also freshened up the site with a pretty new logo and layout, simplifying everything a little and making everything easier to find and follow.
A Life of More is all about living a full and happy life, whether you’re currently travelling or not. The main focus of the site will still be travel, but as I grow I wanted something which will grow with me. Find out more about the ethos of A Life of More here.
I hope you enjoy the new site as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it. As always you can follow me on Facebook, Instagram or subscribe to my monthly newsletter where I’ll be bringing you the best in travel, lifestyle and blogging each month.
