I’m having an identity crisis. With my blog I mean. Don’t worry, if we’re pals in real life then I’m keeping this one short so stay with me. For months now I’ve been struggling with what to do about my blog. Do I do a full redesign and new name, or just redesign and stick with Raspberry Kitsch? It’s becoming the bane of everyone I know’s lives. Seriously. I mean, I hardly blame them, I’ve been going on about it for the past twelve months. Each time I go from being sure I’m going to change it, to being sure I should stick with it. And so on, and so on. You get the idea and you can imagine how bored everyone is.
It’s so hard though, right? I mean I don’t want to lose any rank that my blog has built up. But then it kinda feels like it’s not relevant anymore. And I’m starting to feel like maybe it needs to come more in line with my professional life. Lately though I’m back at a point of thinking I should stick with my name and find a way of making it work. But let’s face it, that could change in like a week. The redesign is a definite though, just as soon as I’ve figured out my new typefaces and colours. Things definitely need freshening up around here. Honestly though, I don’t get why decision making is scrambling my head so much lately! It’s not just my blogging (or lack thereof) that’s causing me issues though, this weather is too.
This weather is playing havoc with my wardrobe. We’re only in September but it feels like someone’s fast forwarded to winter. And of course all of my wardrobe feels wrong because my mind is still stuck in summer. But at the rate the temperature is falling, I’m going to need to pack away my suede skirts in favour of my sheepskin. I’ve always had a thing for autumnal fashion but this year it seems to be coming too early. I’m not quite ready to get all bundled up in chunky knits and big coats. Not just yet anyway. So I’m trying to make do with summery skirts and tops teamed with little jumpers and braving bare legs for now. But maybe I’m definitely going to need to trade in the strappy sandals for my ankle boots soon. While I’m craving a bit of sunshine, I’m going to be (finally) editing my travel photos from the summer. I guess if I can’t be in a bikini right now, then I can at least reminisce.

    Please don't change anything. Your blog is perfect as it is–your layout was actually my inspiration! 🙂

    I know all about a blog identity crisis – I've been struggling with it myself a bit. Though not about its name, more about the content and just a general lack of inspiration. But anyway, I think if you feel the name doesn't fit any more then you should throw caution to the wind and go for a full on rebrand. You'll build back up your ranking in no time.

    What ever decide, good luck and happy blogging! 🙂 x

    I also had an identity crisis with my blog. After much deliberation and a lot of discussions with my friends (against their will haha) I finally made the change and I definitely don't regret it. So I think that you should just go for it 🙂

    What a beautiful post – these photos are stunning and the lighting is incredible. As far as your blog goes – I am sure that you will figure out the direction you want to take it in eventually. Just stay true to yourself, your design style, and the kind of posts YOU want to write and read and you will find your way. I sort of went through one of those periods a few years back but am so happy with how I have transformed my space and it's all because I have just done what I wanted not what other people want 🙂
