Welcome Back!

September 3, 2017

Hi! You may have noticed that tapeparade has been down for the last couple weeks. The more eagle-eyed of you might have also seen that I’ve been off of social media for that time as well. There are a few reasons behind this, which I expect I’ll chat about in the future, but right now all you need to know is that I’M BACK. And I’ve only gone and got a brand new bloody theme, haven’t I?!

As well as looking all snazzy round here, I’ve had a right old declutter of the overall blog. The categories are a lot more streamlined, and if you search for something it should pop up with the most relevant posts first. The shit old photos are gone, posts have been retitled and properly tagged, and going forward tapeparade will be a place which you can rely on serving quality content nonstop baby. As I’ve got less time these days for blogging I want to make sure that the content I do have time to write is the best. So: travel, race, and veganism are the main priorities from here on in! Those are the main categories of interest in my actual life so it makes sense to reflect that here.

I’ve also started using Pinterest as an extension of the blog and way to share related thoughts and ideas. There are boards filled with vegan recipes and ethical hacks and boards featuring travel guides and dream destinations. Plus, three brand new boards celebrating mixed race and desi icons, as well as collecting some of the articles I’ve found most illuminating. I tend to share things I find relevant on Twitter, but I’m aware that recommendations can easily get lost that way so I’m hoping Pinterest will be an easier and more effective way of keeping everything together.

So yeah, that’s where we’re at! I hope you’ll have a browse of all the new stuff and I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas. Thanks for reading all of you. 🙂 X
