Hey there,

Hope your day is going well so far!

I started my wee blog just over four years ago, not long after I’d written the first book I submitted to the NWS, but long before I’d started working on Tapestry. I wanted my own little corner of the internet, somewhere I could learn to put myself “out there” a bit more and somewhere I could meet with YOU, my online buddies.

I was really nervous before I published my first post, but without doing that (or publishing the next post or the next), I probably wouldn’t have published Tapestry. And without the confidence I gained from publishing Tapestry, I might not have started Emerald and Lime. What I’m really saying is that YOU, my online buddy, have been there along the path to me experiencing some of the positive things that have happened over the past few years.

So I wanted to speak to you about some of the changes I’m planning to make.

My writing hopes and plans haven’t changed, but now that I have Emerald and Lime too I’m trying to work out the best way to do justice to both. It’s my plan, therefore, to bring the blog into the Emerald and Lime fold. I feel both aspects of my life are connected anyway, so it makes sense to me to combine them under one virtual roof.

That’s why I haven’t been around much on the blog recently. I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to bring it all together. I’m getting there and am hopeful that my wee “revamp” will come to fruition over the next few weeks, but meantime I wanted to explain my absence.

Have you missed me?

Charming. 😉

So what can you expect from the blog now? Is it worth you sticking around?

Well, lovely you, I’m so glad you asked. It is indeed worth you sticking around. Sticking around like a LIMPET.

My mission with Emerald and Lime is to make us all happier and more productive through inspiring words and a beautiful, colourful way to keep organised. The plan, therefore, is for the blog to do the same. I’m hoping the blog will brighten your day with lifestyle, planning & organisation posts accompanied by a decent dose of bookishness. If that sounds like your bag (oooh…BAGS!!!!), I’m sure we’ll continue to have a blast.

Like I said, I’m hoping to get it together over the next few weeks. I’m still trying to think of a decent name and tagline for the blog, though. I have a few thoughts, but if you have a suggestion, I’d love to hear it. Why not pop it in the comments below? But more importantly, I’d love to know how you’re doing, so if you could leave a wee comment to let me know, that would be great.

Thank you so much for your support of this blog, my writing and Emerald and Lime so far. Looking forward to seeing you really soon…

Much love,

Elle 🙂 xx
