Hey! You might’ve had some idea about a big change coming when I changed my social media handles to @lusttilldawn. But now you know, it’s true– I’m saying goodbye to Tales From a Fork and starting a new chapter in blogging with a new name and brand new blog design.
I know it might take some time for the name and change to settle in, but I’d love for you to hear me out and get to know more about this change.
Will the content change?
Yes and no. You will still find the same great travel and food content that I’ve been putting out for the past two and a half years. Travel and food are the two things that are most near and dear to me so I will never give up sharing my personal insight about them.
If I go to a delicious must-eat at Michelin restaurant in Amsterdam, you will hear about it. If I stumble upon the coziest local bar in Prague that only serves craft beer and tea, you will still hear about it. If I discover a new, more efficient way to pack my bags for multiple weekend trips, YES, you will hear about it.
But in addition to the practical and fun travel tips, I will also be adding healthy and efficient advice from my home life whether cooking Korean food at home, managing pains and aches of fibromyalgia, finding motivation in life, learning how to blog better, and even sharing my own personal stories from my childhood and now.
So basically, it’s going to be everything you already know and love plus more! I really want to get more personal.
So why change the name still?
Yah, I know I can do everything I want to do under Tales From a Fork, but I really feel like Tales From a Fork is pigeon-holing me. The name itself represents travel and food, but I want to talk about so much more.
I want to get deeper into exploring both the outside world through traveling and tasting its wonders and the world within– the physical, mental, and even spiritual. “Lust ‘Till Dawn – Exploring, creating, and wanderlusting from dusk ’till dawn” better represents and fits in everything I want to talk about.
How did this name change all begin?
It all started with my Instagram where I was posting beautiful photos of travel and wonder. There were NO photos of food so my handle @talesfromafork seemed to oddly clash with my photos. So I thought I’d just change my Instagram name and run that separately from my blog.
I came up with “Lust ‘Till Dawn– Wanderlusting From Dusk ‘Till Dawn”. Of course, over time, I began to really love the name and tagline. It was whimsical and dreamy and much better suited for my personality now; something that’s changed significantly since moving from New York City to Amsterdam.
Then I thought about how Tales From a Fork was not only clashing with my Instagram but also pigeon-holing my blog, as I mentioned above, so I decided to expand the Lust ‘Till Dawn tagline for blogging from:
Wanderlusting From Dusk ‘Till Dawn
Exploring, Creating, and Wanderlusting From Dusk ‘Till Dawn
Now I feel more comfortable sharing travel guides, blogging advice, fibromyalgia insight, and lifestyle tips under a name that’s more inclusive of who I am as a whole.
What can we expect from Lust ‘Till Dawn?
For everyone that’s been part of this wonderful Tales From a Fork community for the two and a half years, thank you so much! I’ve been able to accomplish my dream of leaving my job as a CPA, moving abroad and doing something I love day in and out.
I definitely couldn’t have done it without you and will stay true to the good ol’ travel and food posts you all love so much. I have many trips planned for 2018 that includes beautiful landscapes and palate-appeasing foods so stay tuned for more food and city guides to come.
If you follow me on social media, everything will remain mostly about travel and food still! So content-wise, things won’t be so noticeably different on social media.
However, on top of these food and travel posts, I’ll be sharing way more of my insight on blogging, fashion, fibromyalgia, and general lifestyle tips– all things positive, motivating, and encouraging you to live the best life you can live.
