Name Change and Re-launch!

Hi Guys. TGI almost F! It was right around this time three years ago that I officially launched Healthy Girl Transformation. I must say that it has been an incredible three years. What I initially envisioned as a space to share healthy lifestyle changes, grew into a creative outlet for me to share everything from recipes to major life milestones. I'm so grateful that I decided to take the leap and press "publish." 

Since the beginning of this year, I've been thinking more about blogging, and what I intend for this blog to become. Aside from sharing bits of my life, it's my hope that this blog can be a space for young women to come to be encouraged and inspired. Being more of an introvert, blogging helps me create this space in a way that feels right for me. It's on my terms, in my voice, and I love that.  

As I continue to blog, however, I've come across new topics that I'd like to talk about here, but I struggle with how they fit into the blog's overall focus. At times, this has had a censoring effect, which I don't like. After giving it a lot of thought, I feel like I've outgrown Healthy Girl Transformation. While I stand behind everything this blog represents, the  name is limiting. It doesn't give me the freedom to express all of the different parts of who I am and who I'm becoming.

I wanted to find a name that gave me this freedom and that could also grow with me. With that being said, this blog will become "A Bit of Chi." I've been working on a new name since March. Who knew the process would take this long?! Changing a blog name is a big deal though so I wanted to make sure that I chose one that I could really stand behind. A bunch of names came and went, but "A Bit of Chi" stuck. It just felt right. On the new blog, you'll see the same types of posts you've grown to love on Healthy Girl Transformation in addition to more travel posts, decor & entertaining tips, a new school advice segment, and much more!

Another big change you'll notice is that I'll be moving to WordPress. Since I'm going to have to change the website name anyway, I decided that now will be as good a time as any to make the switch. 

So yeah, that's it for now! I can't wait for you to see everything once it's all said and done. Stay tuned!
