Guess what, guys? After many months, tears and countless revisions--I'm beyond excited to announce that my re-brand is finally officially live!
For over a year, I have been wanting to retire my 'srslyliz' moniker and re-brand my blog and business under a new name. I also wanted to house everything, including my portfolio together in one, cohesive site. I mean duh, I do this for my clients so why hadn't I done it for myself yet? It was time.
You may be asking yourself why the heck I chose the name "Magpie"--I explain that more in depth here but the short story is I really identified with its dual definition. Coming up with a new name is hard + scary--especially after being known as something else for so long; after narrowing down the list of possible names, Magpie Co. is what instinctively felt right.
Another big change is that I switched over from my beloved WordPress to Squarespace (gasp! I know). I'd heard so many great things about the SS platform plus after being faced with the issue of not having anyone readily available to develop my re-design thanks to The Break Up--I did my research and felt confident in building my new site all on my own using one of Squarespace's beautiful templates. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with not only the SS user interface but the customer service as well. I super, super, SUPER love it and my only regret is not making the switch sooner.
Please have a look around and check out all the new goodies! Let me know if you find anything wonky or nonsensical--I've been staring at this site for the past 2 weeks straight so its very possible I've overlooked a thing or two. Since the entire site is totally new, there are a few housekeeping items I thought you should be aware of if you're a subscriber to the blog-- you will need to update your subscription links (found in the sidebar). I know its a pain but I promise to make it up to you by posting good stuff frequently again. Likewise, I've switched most of my social media accounts to the new name as well. Srslyliz.com will forever re-direct to the new site, for those of you not quite willing to let it go yet ;)
As always, I appreciate every single one of you and I am so grateful to be able to share this new chapter with you all. Cheers! xx
