I’ve additionally been working a TON on some secret initiatives – I will reveal them later this yr – however you actually will not consider what I am as much as behind the scenes and luckily, all of you’ll be (hopefully) glad after I make my huge reveals. Let’s simply say that I’ve some huge stuff brewing and I am very excited to discover some new, uncharted territory for myself.
I’ve additionally determined to vary DECOR8. I’ve some aesthetic modifications to use later this yr, however for now, I wanted to get again to my roots and simply writer the weblog (largely) alone. I will have Anke Illner and her tabletop tales nonetheless, as a result of they’re rare sufficient to not really feel like additional work for me but additionally they actually encourage all of you (and me too) and I am unable to think about not having these tales on my weblog proper now. I like all of my writers, however I actually need to simply write decor8 on my own once more as I as soon as did many, a few years in the past. I really feel like blogs have advanced a lot that the majority you barely acknowledge as a weblog (they’re extra like magazines or web sites), mine included, and I actually MISS the occasions when blogs seemed (and browse) like blogs and had been extra imperfect and heat and the place the writer was actually current.
I’ve this expression, “When everybody else goes proper, I am going left”, and I actually do reside this manner. Proper now, everyone seems to be on Instagram and, if they’ve a weblog, are making them tremendous attractive and stuffed with excellent pictures and superb content material. And I like that. However I additionally know I can’t ship it and likewise that some variety is good and so why not take this as my alternative to do one thing else and take a look at a brand new strategy – the strategy that at all times feels probably the most genuine to me – to only write stuff right here as I as soon as did, frequently, and share what I like, what evokes me and to make is as non-commercial as humanly potential. I need to take a really natural and impressed strategy to decor8 now. I haven’t got adverts right here and I do not use affiliate hyperlinks and when a publish is sponsored (which isn’t so frequent) it’s clearly labeled as such. However that is in regards to the extent of how business I get on decor8. “I need to go left”, I need to nonetheless have a weblog and share a bulk of my content material and creativity on right here, not solely on Instagram.
So yeah, that is what I am occupied with recently – getting again to my weblog roots, saying goodbye to my stunning group on the weblog, and transferring decor8 right into a extra private area as soon as once more.
