Okay, Girls! I told you yesterday that there was going to be an announcement today.
So here it is.
Pinterest Told Me To is now called Sheaffer Told Me To.
This is kind of a big deal!
Now, I realize it’s not that big of a deal for y’all, but it definitely is for me!
So there are about a billion reasons for the change (I might be exaggerating a tad, I’ve been known to do that) ;), but I don’t want to bore you with all of them. All you really need to know is that this new format should make the user experience easier for you. I hadn’t done any organization or clean up on my main page or in my tabs since 2013, so a little house keeping was way overdue. On Friday I’ll walk you through some of the new additions and changes that I think you will all find helpful! If you want to look around today, just notice the tabs at the top of the page, the fun thumbnail pics divided into categories on the right sidebar (scroll through them with the arrows!), and my instagram shots (that are clickable!) across the bottom of the page. And if you want to leave a comment (please do!), scroll to the top of the post and you will click on where it says “Leave a Comment” to the right of the post title.
The other important thing to know is that even though the name has changed, the blog is going to remain true to what you are used to around here. You will definitely still get Pinterest recreations from time to time, but you’ll also get to continue to check out what I wear every day, see trends highlighted that work for my life and yours, and go on shopping trips with me. I will of course continue to share the items that I love (naming the best of the best MUST HAVES), and rest assured I will ALWAYS highlight a great sale. And when it’s Bachelor season, you’ll also get my recaps.
So….more of the same, just a new name!
It is my intention that Sheaffer Told Me To will not just be about clothes and accessories, but that it will be an encouragement to women. This blog is of course a place for ladies who love to shop and have a great time putting outfits together, but it’s also my desire that it will serve as a resource to women who hate to shop and totally dread getting dressed each morning. I promise I will make the “chores” of shopping and dressing much easier for you!
And as for as the new name, “Sheaffer Told Me To”, I have ya’ll to thank for that!
Over the last 3 years I’ve received so many sweet and wonderful e-mails from you ladies, and a common theme of many of them is that the blog has made getting dressed fun again and that you feel better about yourself as a wife, a mom, and a woman! Just the idea that the blog has “helped” people is such an encouragement to me.
Many of your e-mails even included the hashtag #sheaffertoldmeto, which made me smile.
I liked that the “Told Me To” remained in the title (I like familiarity), but I think it’s fun that I’m now a part of the name as well. I fully own that I have a personality quirk where I MUST share things I love with others….which is why I’m constantly telling y’all to! 😉
Now, you ladies should know that I’m seriously technologically challenged. There might be some glitches here and there (you might have even seen the site go live a little early yesterday! oops!), but we’ll be working hard trying to make this transition as smooth as possible.
So, now that the big reveal is out of the way (whew!), it’s back to business as usual around here! Tomorrow there will be a Bachelor recap, and Friday there is going to be a HUGE GIVEAWAY. I want to make sure any possible kinks are worked out with the migration and with all my new social media sites before I host the giveaway, but make sure you come back for that. I promise you won’t want to miss it. The giveaway is my way of saying “THANK YOU” to all of you spending part of your days over here with me. I know that everybody leads incredibly busy lives, and I just feel so grateful that you are willing to give some of your time to this blog.
I think y’all are awesome, and I’m just so happy to a part of this little community.
