I have been thinking about rebranding and changing the blog’s name for a while now. I finally took the plunge and have made the first steps in rebranding A Girl and Her Husky. A Girl and Her Husky was started when I was just 18 years old and enjoying life with my one Siberian Husky, Gracie. I wanted to write about our adventures together. My main goal was to share stories about my life with Gracie. As time has passed, I have gotten older and my goals with my dogs and my blog have changed. I have added three more Siberian Huskies to my family, graduated college, got married, bought a house, and started my career. In this time, I have also learned a lot more about dogs and Siberian Huskies. I have changed and grown as a dog owner. With this change, I felt myself distancing from A Girl and Her Husky. I still wanted to write and share my thoughts and stories, but I did not want to write on my blog. The brand and name no longer connected with me. After giving it some time and seeing if I would regain the passion for A Girl and Her Husky that I once had, I decided to change what I was doing all together and recreate a blog that I would feel passionate about again.
The main focus of Simply Southern Siberians will be very similar to A Girl and Her Husky in that I will still write about breed education and living with this wonderful breed. I hope to focus more on dog sports, activities owners can do with their dogs, and our journey together in the world of dogs. I will continue to learn and grow as a dog owner, handler, and as a person, and I hope I can share that journey with my readers. Dogs are my passion and always will be. As I get older and learn more, what that means and looks like has changed, and I am sure will continue to change. I do plan to write less product reviews and advice. I will still occasionally do those types of posts, but I do not want that to be my focus.
So why the name Simply Southern Siberians? I was born and raised and still live in Georgia. Being southern is part of who I am. I also want to be able to shed light on owning Siberian Huskies in the South. Many people are misguided in believing you can only own a Siberian Husky if you live somewhere super cold. However, Siberian Huskies can and do thrive in the South and can even still enjoy their favorite sport- mushing! Even if I one day move out of the south, I will still always be a southern girl, and I hope Simply Southern Siberians will be a name that can stick with my blog for years to come.
In the coming weeks you will see these changes reflecting across my blog and social media pages. I have already began to make some of the changes. Once everything is together and transitioned over, I will be sure to share all my new links and pages with my readers!
I hope that those who have been reading and enjoying A Girl and Her Husky will stick around for Simply Southern Siberians!
Thanks for reading!
