Today, I’m thrilled to finally be able to share something with you that I’ve been working on behind the scenes for a little while…
Very soon I will be relaunching my blog under a slightly different alias – Where is Nikki?
So why the (not so big) change?
For those of you that have been following my blog for a while, will know that I started this blog two years ago before I was about to embark on an around-the-world solo adventure for ten months.
I picked the blog name “Where is Noodles?” on a whim because I thought it was cute and quirky, and I figured the only people that would probably end up reading it would be my family and friends (who affectionately know me by the nickname Noodles)
Never did I imagine that what humbly began as an online travel journal would grow into a passion and part-time job, gaining thousands of loyal readers along the way.
While “Where is Noodles?” was fine at first, I have reached the point now where I feel I have outgrown it and the name is no longer personally or professionally appropriate. I was also very aware that it was causing some confusion among new readers (is it a food blog? Is it a travel blog? And what IS with the random nickname anyway??)
While I love that the name is memorable and also captures my quirkiness and personality – as my blog continues to grow it was time that I started to think about the longevity of my brand.
I realise “Where is Nikki” isn’t exactly life-changing (haha) but now it feels like a name that better reflects my message.
So what’s next for Where Is Nikki?
Over the next few weeks you may notice some subtle changes here and there as I start to migrate my blog over to its new home.
All of my current articles will still be available on the new blog and I will still be sharing lots of stories, tips and inspiration from my various adventures around the world. The content and layout will largely remain the same…HOWEVER there is going to be some big changes in my life during 2017, and with that a slightly new focus on the blog too (although I will be keeping that part secret for now – all will be revealed in good time my friends!!!)
So hopefully you’ll welcome this change as I embark on a new journey with both blogging and travel in 2017. And be sure to check in again during January for the official launch and let me know what you think!
