I just wanted to apologise for the last time for the lack of posts lately, as you will have seen in my previous post about our family day out I have my little sisters visiting me from France at the moment so I’ve been spending most of my time with them as well as that though I’ve been making a lot of important blog changes.
I know I talked about most of the changes I’ve made in a previous post which if you click here you can read but I just wanted to take some time and talk about the rest of the changes I’ve made or I’m about to make too.
So before I waffle on about the little changes and lose your attention lets start with the big change that’s on its way. It’s not a change I’ve taken lightly and I have been weighing up the pros and cons for a while but I’m going to start selling advertising on my blog.
Hear me out.
I’m going to focus my advertising on promoting other blogs and helping to boost smaller blogs up as well as helping the more popular blogs reach an even wider audience, but I wholeheartedly promise that it won’t stop me posting my poetry or any of my usual posts and In fact you’ll barely even notice a change.
The reason I want to sell advertising space is simple really, I want to take time out to focus on writing my novel and getting my poetry anthology completed and published, to do that I’ll still need some sort of income and well this seemed like the best way to get that income.
I’m well aware of the general feeling towards advertising on blogs but if this allows me to take time out to write and allows me to also help other blogs out I don’t see the harm in it. There’ll be no banner ads and for every promotional post I do I’ll upload an extra poem to balance it out.
I swear you’ll barely notice the changes. I really hope that this won’t upset too many of you because I mean it when I say you guys are like my family and I’d hate to fall out with you all over something like this especially after all that my long term readers and I have been through over the years.
Are you all still speaking to me? Shall I carry on telling you about the other changes?!
If you’re still reading this then please let me tell you about another big change I’m about to make! I’m going to start uploading short stories. Once a week for now I think but maybe more often depending on how well they go down. These will start going up within a week or so once I’ve cleared my backlog of posts a bit!
As well as these changes you’ll notice that the pages at the top of this page have changed. I changed the about me section and merged it with the about this blog page I also updated the information within. I’ve never been very good at writing about myself or my blog for that matter but I think this one is better than the last. When you’ve finished reading this go and check it out and let me know what you think!
As well as that I put in a page for the email you can all use to contact me if you need somebody to talk to because I’m still trying to get the word out that the support email has changed. I’ve also added a general enquiries form to the contact page for, well, general enquiries!
I hope you’re all well and aren’t too angry at me for deciding to sell advertising, if you are angry at least stick around and see what it’s going to be like when I launch it this weekend before you decide to leave me forever.
I love you guys I really do and I can’t thank you enough for the level of support you all show me! I’m being lame now I know but it’s true. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, without you I’d be talking to myself!
I’m really sorry for the lack of posts, normal blogging service will be resumed as of now!
I’m a little nervous about asking for feedback on this post but comment down below or tweet me @MissCharlotteEm and let me know what you think! xo
