A New Direction

Hello Readers! The savvy among you will have noticed that I have had a bit of a blog look change and that my URL is also different. Instead of Laura's little book blog, welcome to Laura Patricia Rose...

This coming May, I will have been blogging for four years and it has gone so quickly. I have met a huge amount of book lovers through my blog and also made some great friends too. I got into blogging from my love of books and wanting to shout about them as loudly as I could and the fact that I am still here after that long shows you how much I enjoy it. However there have been times where I have wanted to blog about others things and this has been on my mind a while.

About a couple of years ago I went to a non-book related event that covered a load of my other interests like stationary, beauty, hair and fashion. I remember thinking that I really wanted to talk about some of those things on my blog, but because I had niched myself as a book blogger, I knew it would not make any sense to start talking about these things. It sounds silly, but part of the reason I put off changing my blog for so long was because I was worried about what people would think and I know now that that is so silly! This is my blog at the end of the day and I can choose to do and write about what I like :) 

This doesn't mean that I will stop blogging about books- no way! Book blog posts will still be my main posts and I will still shout about them from the rooftops, but I will also be blogging about other things.

Now you're probably thinking not another Lifestyle blog and how it's already so over-saturated, but my blog is my hobby, I never set out with the intention of making money or getting free things, although if they do come my way I would never complain. This is just my little teeny tiny space on the internet to talk about the things I love.

I hope you like the changes and I can't wait to share some new content with you.

Happy reading!
