No more TooClothesForComfort?...

I know, I know...It's been almost a month and this time it wasn't me being lazy. It was just me actually taking a break and deciding on whether I wanted to continue to blog, which I do, so don't let the title fool you.
For a while now I have been toying with the idea of a name change, originally I had planned on doing mostly fashion posts, hence why I went with a name that had some indication of that, however not too long after I started blogging I realised that, that wasn't really what I wanted to do, I felt like I was limited to only blogging about fashion and not anything else because of my blog name and I didn't like that, I've never been the kind of person who likes to be stuck in certain boxes/roles/things...basically anything that limits me, I don't like,(so I'm not sure why I thought it would be good idea to focus on mostly one subject)but I stuck with the name because I thought it would get better or that I would get over it, I didn't. The name finally got the better of me last month and if you read my last post you would have seen that I was having a lot of issues fashion wise and just in general and some of that came from me stressing out about nothing being good enough for my blog and again I was trying to limit myself to one clothing style, which is just not me at all, I wear what I feel like on a day to day basis and limiting myself to one style was pretty much suffocating me and I realised that unless I changed my blog name, I would have continued to suffer from it. I know it seems strange that something so trivial could have such an effect on someone, but it is what it is and I can't help that. So, I did it, I changed my blogs name and I can tell you that I already feel ten times better, I'm more excited to get back into blogging now that I don't feel so stressed about the content I feel I need to be putting out, I can finally put out whatever I feel like and not feel as though I am deceiving anyone.There is no rhyme or reason to the new name, I've just always liked "Midnight's Calling" and seeing as I am a total night owl, I thought it was fitting....If you are wondering, no, this blog isn't about anything in specific and quite frankly I prefer it that way, I am in no way a specific kind of person, so for me to have a blog that is specifically for one thing and one thing only would be extremely untrue to the person a really am, unfortunately I had to learn that the hard way.
There isn't much else for me to say, I've covered all I needed to, if you read this all, then thanks! I will now reward you with pretty pictures..shout out to my Sam's cat, peeno, She's the one under the blankets...you'll see...Until next time, take care x

  1. I'm relieved that you're planning to continue blogging - I really enjoy reading your posts. I do happen to love your posts about fashion, but plenty of Fbloggers are also Lbloggers and blog on a very wide range of subjects. I'm glad the link to ToClothesForComfort redirects to your new Midnight's Calling URL. I see you've already made the change on the profile on your Twitter @VanessaThornton, so people can find you that way too. Being that you're a total night owl and living across the pond I'll have to keep an eye out for your posts if I'm up early in the morning here on the U.S. East Coast. I love the pretty pics :)

    1. Thank you :)
      I'll still have fashion posts, I just felt that the name didn't represent my blog accurately :)
      Once I purchased my domain name I set all the redirecting up and made sure I changed any social media that had my blog linked. They were on the top of my "need to do" list.

  2. Oops! I'm confused with my time zones. I think you're either nine hours later or 15 hours earlier than me? It's 2:54 PM here at the moment (U.S. EST) on 10 May.

  3. Love the new name! It's good to take a step back and re-evaluate things every now and again. I think blogs should definitely represent who you are and should be something you want to write about and share. Good luck with the new journey and I am looking forward to seeing your future posts!
