If you’ve paid a visit to the blog over the last few hours you will have probably noticed it’s appearance has changed. This should have happened long before now, but through a culmination of incessant procrastination and time constraints it’s only just getting off the ground. Still, better late than never and I really feel this is a natural progression for the blog moving into 2016.
Thinking Chap was initially started as a means to express my often miss-guided opinions on menswear and associated sub-cultures, and nothing has changed in that respect. However, despite steady growth over the past 12 months I’ve felt for sometime that the blog had become little stagnated. I’m sure my fellow bloggers will appreciate where I’m coming from here when I say finding the time to not only produce regular engaging content, but also plan the longer term direction of your blog can be challenging.
Therefore, over the festive period I tried to provide myself something that I’ve failed to do all year round. Time. Time to think, plan, and put into place realistic monthly goals along with considering where I would like the blog to be 12 months from now. But probably most importantly, reviewing these goals regularly to ensure I know whether I’m on track, or not as the case may be.
I won’t bore you with all the whys and wherefores of how I intend to stear the good ship Thinking Chap to its chosen destination, but there are plans to bring on board one or two likeminded contributors who like myself have a propensity to talk utter nonsense. In addition, I’m adamant that semi-regularly interviews and giveaways will be something you’ll see on the blog with increasing regularity.
I’m also over the moon with my new FuJi X100S Camera (A Christmas gift from Mrs Thinking Chap), so expect to see more of my own photography on the blog this year (once I’ve worked out how to use it properly) as appose to me nicking other people’s fine imagery.
Finally, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who’s stopped by to read my witterings over the past 12 months. It’s really appreciated, and I hope you like the look of the new site.
