Time for a Blog Makeover?

I know, I know, it sounds like I’m just doing what everyone else is, but after 5 1/2 years, I feel that Shorty Stories is getting a little tired, even after moving it from Blogger to WordPress.  When I first started, it was, of course, a “ranting” site to get people talking about petite issues.  There was also a time when I posted almost every other day, but that was before I had DelectablyChic! or even its predecessor, Prospere Magazine.  As the years went by, Shorty Stories became more and more a style/outfit blog.  And I haven’t had a “Shorty Story” – other people’s experiences about being short – in a very, very long time.  These are two main reasons why I’m considering a change.

What I’m proposing is a name and domain change, including the possibility of using a subdomain under DelectablyChic! (i.e. newsite.delectablychic.com) and using it as an outfit post site.  Dream items, designer intros (unless it’s something that a designer sends me to try on) and all other style-related posts will go to the main site, since there’s so much crossover (e.g. the Ann Taylor PR director interview).  However, that leaves body image articles.  Since my body image articles tend to be petite-related, where would they go?  And if I go ahead with this, am I “abandoning the cause”? Can I have a petite-related outfit blog only and be seen as a “petite activist”?   I suppose I could still have a site that is predominantly an outfit blog and still have information about petite issues since I *AM* petite.  Of course, another idea is to keep everything as is, and only go forth with a name change.  However, with all that cross-over, I’m not sure if this really makes much sense.

What are your thoughts on this?  Suggestions would be great.
