In case you missed the news on the old blog, here’s the deal. For the past few years, I’ve maintained a professional portfolio site at a whole other domain. This made sense when I first started beauty school and had to keep a low profile. But it stopped making sense awhile back and so I’ve finally rectified the matter, bringing blog and portfolio together at last.
Or rather, Liz and Jeff, the geniuses at Super Runaway have rectified the matter and I can’t say enough good things about them. (They also designed my best friend Amy’s website, and we joke that we maybe have a collective crush on them. If you need web folk, hire them. Stat.)
So. Click around and check out the new, improved virginiasolesmith.com right now.
And here’s one big change you might notice: Beauty Schooled — as in, the complete chronicles of my time in beauty school — is archived as a special project. So is Never Say Diet. You can still read every word of every one of those posts if your little heart desires, but those adventures are officially complete. (See where it says SPECIAL PROJECTS up in the top right corner? Click and this will all make sense.)
Here’s the other big change: As of Monday, January 30, my old blog at beautyschooledproject.com — where I wrote about beauty, body image and other women’s issues — will become this new blog that you’re reading right now on this here new site, where I’ll be writing about beauty, body image and other women’s issues. In other words, nothing will change beyond the URL. But as I said in this post, 2012 is the year for new adventures. So I do hope you’ll subscribe via email or RSS feed (or update your old subscriptions*) and come along for the ride.
