If anyone was awake last night trolling any of our social media accounts, you may have already noticed that we’ve changed in kind of a big way?! Welcome to the new (but still very much the same) blog – Local Loves Vancouver Island!
Some of you already know that in October, Sarah made the move down to Victoria. What you may not know, however, is that I followed suit shortly after. It’s been a month (to the day!) that I moved down to Victoria. Since Sarah and I have both moved out of Nanaimo we thought it was time for a fresh new name to go along with our fresh new starts.
Don’t get us wrong, we still LOVE Nanaimo and we hope to continue to bring you great content on our favourite Harbour City. We just thought it was weird to be a Nanaimo blog but, like, not even live in Nanaimo?! Like I said though, we still plan on bringing you Nanaimo content (and Parksville!) as our families still reside there and we’ll be visiting. A lot. You can’t get rid of us that easy!
This also brings me to why we chose the name Local Loves Vancouver Island and not Local Loves Victoria. Sarah and I thought about our name change for a long while – in fact the idea first sprung up during last summer. The reason we decided against Local Loves Victoria is that it was too restricting. We wanted the freedom to be able to post about all over Vancouver Island and not feel like we had to keep a heavy focus on only Victoria. Plus, we LOVE our Nanaimo readers and we didn’t want to close the door on all the great people we’ve met and the connections we’ve made.
With Local Loves Vancouver Island you can expect the same great style just with a wider pool to explore ;) We are really excited about this change and we hope you are too. If you’re new to the blog, welcome and we hope you like it here! If you’ve been a reader since our early LLN days, we hope you stick around and join us in this new chapter.
Lots of (local) love,
Sean & Sarah <3
