Something Has Changed....

You may remember from my April Goals post, that one of my goals this month is to get an amazing blog makeover.  Part of my makeover plan has been to change my blog name and switch to a .com address.  Although it will still be a bit longer before the re-design takes place, I wanted to go ahead and let you in on at least one aspect of the changes to come.

So why Lady Serpentine?  I loved Hike & Seek, and when I first started this blog my content was 100% Nature Photography.  It made sense.  While doing some content planning exercises, I decided that I wanted to incorporate more lifestyle posts...and that I wanted to start sharing a lot more about my reptile keeping hobby.  Something that you always hear from successful bloggers is that you should blog about what you love.  One of my greatest loves is Herpetology.  I love reptiles.  Whether it's searching for native species outdoors or caring for the ones I call pets, I love them.  The thing that's always held me back about sharing reptiles in any of my posts on any blog I've ever had, is that a lot of people dislike them.  I've been taking the wrong approach and ignoring that successful blogger advice of blogging about what you love.  Now I'm ready to put my big girl pants on and make this blog a place that truly reflects me.  Lady Serpentine popped into my head one day, and I identified with it instantly.  Remember in Avatar when Jake Sully syncs with his Direhorse and later his Mountain Banshee?  Yeah, it was like that :)  It encompasses the part of my life I've always wanted to blog about, but never have because I was afraid it would scare readers away.  I also think it sounds quite pretty :)  So there you have it!

If you currently have one of my Hike & Seek buttons on your blog, and you'd like to have an updated one, just send me an email at ohrockymail@gmail.com and I'll get it to you right away!

I hope you're all having a beautiful weekend and I'll see you tomorrow!
