Blogmas Day 12 | Content Update – A Few Steps In a New Direction

ContentI’ve been really inspired lately by some amazing bloggers and how they create their content on their Blogs, Youtube’s, and Instagram’s.

So now that the year is coming to an end (and it went extremely fast! Don’t know how!!). I’m planning out my New Year’s resolutions for 2019. And I thought I would implement some changes in the content I create as well.

One of the first changes is going to be the kind of posts I upload on the blog. I think all the content I’ve created here so far has been very evergreen content, “how to’s” and stuff like that. And I haven’t gotten myself really into my posts. I barely upload posts with pictures of me, and whatever you can tell about my life you must have seen it on Instagram. And it isn’t as much either.

And I’m not talking about ego-blogging whatsoever. But I created this blog as a creative outlet and I want to look back at my posts in the future and see how I grew and evolved as a creative and as a person. And the only way I can do this is to really open up and be more comfortable with sharing my life in the world wide web.

So I wanted to shift my content into a more personal type of posts. Where it doesn’t matter if I’m talking about a pair of socks, I want to be in it and open up myself more in my writing too. So you can get to know me a bit better.

Content

ContentThe second change I’m planning actually comes from Blogmas! I post on my blog on Wednesday’s and Friday’s. But Blogmas really taught me that I can create daily content no matter how rushed I am. So I’m planning to add another upload day to my week.

I haven’t decided if it’s going to be Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s. Or if it’s going to be Wednesday’s, Friday’s and Sunday’s. Maybe you can help me out with this one? Let me know in the comments what you’d prefer.

And last but not least. The other thing I wanted to change in terms of my content. Is starting a Youtube Channel.

Now, I’m not promising anything. I’m extremely shy and I can’t see myself walking around and talking to a camera. Besides, I have to speak in English which is not my first language. And it doesn’t come as naturally to me.

And I also don’t think my life is as interesting to bring you along with me on my boring days (vlogs). But I do think this type of content can help with you getting to know me better. And see my personality better since you can see how I move, how I talk, my sense of humor, etc.

So I’m practicing with this one. I’ve been recording myself more and editing the videos to see more or less how it would look and if it would work. But I don’t know yet.

Let me know in the comments if you would be interested in watching my videos if I end up doing this!

And of course, my content won’t be only vlogs. I would make video versions of my blog posts and maybe some exclusive content for Youtube, that will go up on my blog too, but as a video format only.

Content Content ContentAnother thing I’m debating is that I want to give my fashion and lifestyle content more priority than my photography one. Not because I love it more, but because I think it’s more interesting to watch. And it’s more fun for me to make.

The technical parts of photography I’ve made so far have been really helpful for some of you. As I can tell from your messages and the way these posts perform on Pinterest. But I think I don’t want to get more technical than that. So I will add this type of content on demand. If you guys want to see it, I’ll do it. But for instance, my fashion and lifestyle content will go first from now on.

I’m really inspired by many bloggers, as I said at the beginning of this post. And I want to create more outfit posts, share with you my house and how I redecorate it, take you along with me through my week, etc. And this is starting with this post! Where apart from sharing with you the changes that the future of this blog hold. I wanted to share my favorite jacket at the moment. And my favorite combat boots. (Which fun fact: they are men boots.) So yeah; getting closer and personal basically.

And that’s it for Blogmas Day 12 (we are already halfway!). A little random rambles for you guys! But I would really appreciate the feedback!! So tell me what you think about all of this in the comments bellow! ♥

I love this idea of planning things out for the year ahead and making changes. It’s always great to be able to bring more of yourself in to your posts!
