Allow me to reintroduce myself

Hello, welcome to the new and improved Francisca Rockey! If you’ve been here for a while, you probably already know a lot of what I’m going to say but, if you haven’t and you happen to be a newbie, here’s everything that you need to know:

I’m Francisca, a 20-year-old Londoner studying for a BSc Geography degree in York. I started my blog in 2014, as a place to document my teenage years, release my inner emotional thoughts and get my writing ‘out there’. What started as a hobby has now grown into something a lot bigger, a community of people who share my passions, a brand.

Here, you’ll find lifestyle, travel and student-related content. I dabble into fashion, beauty and fitness from time to time. Though I wouldn't say they're part of my niche, I can direct you to my favourite bloggers who do.

You’re probably wondering why I’ve relaunched. The truth is, I fell out of love with writing. I lost myself and started to incorporate things onto my blog that just wasn’t ‘me’. I lost sight of the reason why I started my blog, so with my 6th blogversary just around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to rebrand and relaunch my site. I’m not the 14-year-old who started this blog and that Francisca is not the Francisca I am now. It’s taken me a while to accept that my content just didn’t align with me anymore and that I needed to archive a lot of it, let go of my past and create new content that represents who I am now.

With new content, comes a new schedule. I will no longer be posting on Monday at 6pm, instead, a new post will go up every Wednesday at 12pm, this works better for me and from the results I got from a twitter poll, this works well for a lot of you too.

Everyone changes over time; I’ve changed and that's okay! I am now a happier person, who accepts herself and a person who is always working (typical Capricorn) to better themselves so that one day, I reach my full potential. 6 months from now, I will be 21 and I wonder what type of person I will be then. Don’t worry, I won’t be relaunching again at the end of the year, I want my new site to be one that will grow with me and that I can adapt, as I make my way through the journey that is adulthood.

That’s all from me for now, it feels good to be back!
