I wanted to discuss what is my plans for my blog in 2018! Nothing is massively changing 🙂 so that’s good! But, I am however going to be a little selective in two particular area’s of my blog and this is to do with; 1. what books I choose to review on here and 2. fee’s.
As you will know I get people emailing me through my “work with me” page and they email me, which I know I am incredibly lucky to receive, with books that authors would like to send me to review. And, for someone who is still quite a small based blogger, makes me feel so incredibly lucky!! But, I sometimes accept books because I feel rude saying no and I have sometimes found I was forcing myself to start reading these books (even if i did eventually enjoy them in the end) which I shouldn’t have to do, because I honestly think this is what caused 99% of my readers block last year. Because I was forcing myself to read books that I didn’t particularly know that I would enjoy and as you’ll have seen there was 1 I didn’t particularly rate too high as I just didn’t enjoy it?
So, I’ve made a huge decision too. I’ve decided to rebrand my blog. “DBBloggerxoxo” was the name I first chose 3 and a bit years ago when I started blogging, but, as times gone on I really feel I’ve began to outgrow the name. It will always be special to me because it’s started something I now class as much more then a hobby, it is something that has and is leading to such amazing opportunities for me but, I have developed a “niche” should we say? And that’s for my love of my chosen life career, being a Historian. Since gradating I have realised just how much becoming a historian has meant to me and I just want to carry on filling everyone with my “short historical facts” and also doing book reviews & tv series’/film reviews. All three things I truly love in life. And life blogging! Nothing pleases me more then fulfilling blog posts that consist of these 4 things, so I’m pursuing it. 😊😊 So, starting with user names on here & Twitter! Twitter I am now “@withlovecharx” & here I am “withlovecharlottex” BUT I will keep the domain until further notice 😊. The whole “With love, Charlotte x” theme will just be taking over everything :D.
Also I have now decided that I will start charging for everything I write for other people on my blog as it takes a lot of time out of my time to be doing these types of things for people and, I would love to start making a little income from my writing I do on here, I feel it’s time haha. So, see in my “work with me” section linked here, WORK WITH ME, to see what I will be charging and which types of writing services I provide.
So, this will not be the only changes, there will NOW be 3 monthly short historical reviews, 1 monthly faves, 1 monthly book reviews and 3 other posts I wish to write about! So the main structure won’t be changing, I’m just going to be a little more selective on book choices and charging a slight fee for my writing services (my prices are not big AT ALL) :).
So! I hope this is cool with you guys, I would just like to thank all my new followers from this year, I appreciate you all so sooo much. And, thank you also for all the comments and views, this years been awesome for all of it, so again, thank you so so much! 🙂
With love, Charlotte x
