Hello there! Guess who’s back with a whole new blog name?!?!
Just like her predecessor, “Quaintrelle” has gone to spend the rest of her years at an all-inclusive beach side retirement resort. What’s left of the blog is simply me, myself and I – no fancy name to hide behind, just me. Setarra. Hence the decision to change my blog’s name to setarra.com :)
In addition to changing the name, I’m sure you can see that the blog has also gone through a complete makeover! Shout out to Phil over at Pipdig for helping move my content over from Blogger to WordPress (yep, I made the move!) and to Serena of Pretty Wild Things for working with me to create a new blog header (that I love)! There are still a few formatting issues I need to correct with my old blog posts but overall, I feel like everything is headed in the right direction.
As far as content goes, you can still expect to see posts about life, travel, and food with regular appearances of the hubster, Charles. Everything about the blog is pretty much staying the same except for the fact that it’s now operating under a new name.
Same goes with all my social media handles. The majority of them are staying the same except for my Facebook page which I had to re-create so make sure to “like” the page if you prefer to get blog updates via Facebook. As for Bloglovin, I’ve sent them a couple emails asking for assistance in moving over those of you who are following via the “Quaintrelle” bloglovin page over to the new Setarra bloglovin page. So that should (hopefully) be resolved soon. In the meantime, feel free to follow the new bloglovin page here.
Now that I’ve got all the pertinent information out of the way… I thought it might cool to try something different and record a podcast (my first ever!) letting you know how to correctly pronounce my name seeing as it is now the name of my blog too.
Please note that this is my first foray into public speaking (I did it all in one recording and wasn’t as prepared as I should’ve been with what I wanted to say beforehand) so please excuse all of my “ummms” and variances of voice pitch as you listen along below. I should probably consider joining the Toastmasters group that meets bi-weekly at my job but I’ll leave that for another day to consider haha. Hope you enjoy the recording!
And there you have it. How to pronounce my name… Hope I didn’t scare you away with my rambling.
I always find it so interesting to hear a blogger’s voice for the first time after I’ve been following their blog for a while. For those of you who are hearing my voice for the first time, what do you think? Does it fit with the voice you had in your head while reading the blog? Let me know in the comments below :)
On that note, I’ve got a bunch of new posts coming your way and here’s a little sneak peek of what’s to come next week!
^^ Charles and I celebrated our one year anniversary earlier this month on July 7th and I think the timing is perfect for us to finally share the photos from our wedding day on the blog (along with other few other ‘love’ related posts in support). Travel and food related posts to come the following week for those of you who would like to avoid the nauseating mushiness associated with next week’s ‘wedding theme’. ;)
Wishing you a Happy Thursday, Almost Friday! Peace.
