Looking for Simplify This Home? Don’t worry, you’re still in the right place! It just has a new name. Keep reading to see what else is new!
Welcome to Pretty Bird Kitchen!
If you come here often, then you’ve probably noticed a pretty big change…this site is no longer called Simplify This Home! Now it’s Pretty Bird Kitchen.
After two years of putting my heart and soul into Simplify This Home, I finally realized that I needed to make some changes in order to grow the site to its full potential. You see, Simplify This Home covered a variety of topics ranging from homemaking and natural cleaning to healthy eating and managing money.
It was quite diverse, and I quickly learned that it takes a lot of effort to regularly publish new posts on so many topics.
Plus, when I looked at how my life has changed in the two years since starting STH, I realized that my passion is the whole food, plant-based lifestyle, and I just didn’t enjoy writing about homemaking and money management as much as I did when I first started STH.
So after a few weeks of soul searching and trying to map out a more sustainable path for this website, I finally decided that focusing all of my energy on plant-based lifestyle topics was the best direction to take.
And since this new direction has nearly nothing to do with homemaking, I decided to pick out a new website name while I was at it.
What to Expect from Pretty Bird Kitchen
At this point, you might be wondering what you can expect to see on Pretty Bird Kitchen, or “PBK” for short.
I want this website to be a resource for all things plant-based, so with that in mind, I plan to offer recipes and practical tips to help you make the plant-based lifestyle work for you.
Some topics you might see include:
- Plant-based cooking tips
- Plant-based grocery shopping tips
- How to save money on plant foods
- How to get your family on board with plant-based eating
- Recipes that are delicious and easy to make
I have all sorts of ideas and plans for this website, so you’ll just have to stick around and see what happens!
How to Find Your Favorite Content from Simplify This Home
Of course, you might also be wondering what will happen to all of the other non-plant-based content I have on this website—namely the homemaking and money management articles.
When I finish getting the website updated, you won’t see those categories listed in the main menu anymore, but you will still be able to access them if you’re willing to get a little creative.
You can always use the search bar on this website to search for specific phrases, or you can browse through the articles by topic here:
- All homemaking articles
- Cleaning routines
- Decluttering and organizing tips
- Natural cleaning
- Natural beauty
- General healthy lifestyle
- All money management articles
- Budgeting tips
- Saving money
- Managing money
- Our student loan payoff updates
- All seasonal articles
Changes to the Free Resource Library
Yep, I’ll be making some changes to the resource library too!
All of the non-plant-based printable resources that were listed in the resource library will be available to download in the articles where they are mentioned.
For example, you will be able to find and download my budget sheet in my budgeting articles.
To save yourself some time, I recommend you log into the library soon and download and save all of the printables you think you’ll need so you don’t have to hunt for them each time you want to print a new copy. It will be far easier to save those files to your computer than to search for them every time.
Note: If you’ve never signed up to access the free resource library and want to do so while all of my printables are conveniently located in one place, you can sign up here.
When Will All of These Changes Be Finished?
Oh my goodness, I have a 2-page list of aaaalllll the things I have to do to get everything switched over from Simplify This Home to Pretty Bird Kitchen. Rebranding a website is no joke!
You’ll start seeing more and more changes over the next few weeks, and I hope to have everything completely switched over to the new name in about a month (so mid-August). I guess we’ll just have to see how good my estimation skills are! 🙂
Final Thoughts on this Rebrand
I’m so very grateful for all of my readers and email subscribers—especially those of you who came for my homemaking and money management articles. Thank you for sticking around during all of the many changes Simplify This Home has gone through over the last two years!
I do hope you’ll stick around for the new content on Pretty Bird Kitchen, but I also know that the whole food, plant-based lifestyle isn’t exactly everyone’s cup of tea. So if this new direction isn’t for you, then I completely understand!
But I sincerely hope my older content continues to help you succeed in the other important areas of your life. And if you need support with those topics, you can still reach out to me if you have questions! I’m always here to help however I can. 🙂
