You may have already seen that our name has changed on Facebook. Soon many of the other social media outlets will be changing as well. If you are a regular reader, subscriber or a member of the SMART Weight Loss support group on Facebook you already know whats going on but may not know the full details of the change.
After going back and forth in my head I finally decided that it was time to take the plunge and rebrand Fitness Fashionista into Fit Life Creative.
Before we get into the details of why things are changing and everything that is to come. I wanted to let you all know that you will notice a lot of new content being published at once. The reason for this is am building the site out to be an ultimate resource site for those that are just getting started on their fitness/healthy lifestyle journey.
Although you will see a large amount of content you won’t get any emails from me for a couple of weeks as I get everything organized and prepared for the
June 1st June 6th launch.
So you may be asking why?
There are a number of reasons for the change but the biggest reason is that I felt that I could serve you all better by focusing in on the more creative side of things.
It’s clear if you spend anytime here that I pretty much never talk about fashion. There was a time briefly that I thought that merging fitness and fashion would be a great idea but after I gave it a go I realized I didn’t really have a strong enough interest in fashion. If you are going to talk about fashion you should LOVE fashion.
To be perfectly honest I recently gave away most of my clothes and now stick to a pretty casual uniform.
On any given day you can find me in a Target tshirt (I have one in every single color) and a pair of jeans, but only if I have to leave the house. Due to all of this Fitness Fashionista just didn’t really fit, I guess it never really did but as the site grew I grew more and more fearful of changing the name.
This site is my full time job and the thought of changing the name and potentially losing everything was scary. It took a long time to figure out what the name should be, I bought a lot of urls in the process. However nothing really stuck. Then Fit Life Creative popped into my head and it just felt right.
Fit Life Creative embodies everything I want for the site. I want to help each and everyone of you that comes here become more active and healthy but at the same time I want to create fun and colorful ways to help you live the life you want. I’m able to do that through my printables.
I use to look at other fitness sites and think oh I have to do this or that but I am not a personal trainer, I am no master cook and to be honest I hate even thinking about a gym. I love color, design, long walks and hiking trails. I want my life to be active and outside.
There are tons of fitness blogs out there but I think Fit Life Creative is truly going to be unique.
Lets talk about some of the changes that are coming.
One major change is that posting of articles will slow down tremendously. I realized that I was spending more and more time in front of the computer and less and less time being actively present in my own life. I need to cut down on the number of articles on the site so that I can focus on staying active, interacting with all of you and design.
Interacting with so many of you via the Facebook group really opened my eyes to what I wanted to do. If you all are on Facebook I want to be there with you talking, supporting and motivating one another. If you are on twitter or instagram I want to be there with you too.
I also don’t want to write just to be writing. I want my words to inspire and motivate you all. So I have been looking more closely into doing something called slow blogging. Where there is less in terms of quantity but much higher in quality.
I do plan to create a really big resource for you all with all the content that I do have (published and unpublished) that I think will be helpful for you all on your journey. One of the big things I am doing is organizing it all out so that it will be easier to find exactly what you need. My hopes are to create an ULTIMATE RESOURCE site for you to come and find exactly what you need when you need it.
MORE Printables and Challenges…
Since I will be slowing down on all the different articles this will give me a lot more time to design and create tons of printables and planner goodies that you all can put to use in your daily lives. This also means that I will have more time to create different sizes which many of you all have been requesting.
Challenges will start back up in September and based on how well they have been received I will be working to make them a monthly staple. We will be alternating between the SMART Step Challenge and the SMART Weight Loss Challenge.
This change is going to be really good for all of us. I think it will also allow me to get from behind the computer a lot more often while also allowing me to engage with you all a lot more.
Be on the look out for the full switch over to Fit Life Creative on June 6th. If there is a printable you would like to see offered here please leave a comment I can add it to my list for the free printable library.
