Blog announcements... And other random things...

Tuesday, 23 December 2014

 

 

There are a lot of random blog notices floating around in my mind at the moment, And so I'm calling the blog equivalent of a family meeting. Grab a cup of tea, and il have you updated in no time :)

It's a date! - You might have noticed I'm not currently running any kind of blog schedule - whatsoever. In fact, so far I've basically been writing whenever the mood takes me and posting in much the same way. It's pretty erratic, and I realised that one thing I love about some of my favourite blogs is knowing which days to stop by and expect a new post. So, I thought its about time I followed suit. From January, you can expect new posts every Monday, every Wednesday, and sometimes on Fridays. So that's always twice per week, and most weeks it will be updated three times. It's a date ;)

I dropped the blogspot! - As much as I loved - heavy sarcasm - the clunky 'dot.blogspot' attached to my blogs name, I thought it was time to set it free and buy a custom domain name. From now on you can find me at the much simpler, much cleaner - www.mimiflys.co.uk! I'm looking forward to silly little things, like having a few extra characters to play with when I tweet, and to not making ridiculous iPhone typos like 'mimiflys.dotbloodspot'. Eww.

Honesty is the best policy - As my blog approaches it's three month anniversary (yay!) I've had a couple of PR people and brands get in touch - which is obviously interesting, but also makes me aware that I need to broach the subject of disclosure. As I'm sure everybody knows, brands often want to send out products in case it might result in a review. I wanted to make it clear that I will only ever blog about things that I genuinely love as that's what this blog is all about for me. Absolutely everything I blog about I paid for with my own money - and if I do ever blog about something that happened to be sent to me, i will mention that in the post. I'm going to add this info into my sidebar but I thought I'd include it in this random post too. Reading blog posts about the most irrelevant products when the writer is clearly being paid to do so is a bug bear of mine. I can't be bribed, so I'm just throwing that out there!

Winner of my Hong Kong Haul and giveaway - My first ever giveaway was so much fun and a huge success in my eyes, I didn't expect to have gotten so many entries so thank you to everybody who entered! I used Randomizer to pick a winner, and that winner was Linda Libra Loca, so an email is on its way to you, you lucky thing. Il be having monthly giveaways in 2015, so keep your eye balls peeled for that!

New Years Resos - I'm currently trying to think up some blog-related New Years resolutions. I'd be really interested to hear what you enjoy most currently on my blog, any improvements you think I could make? Or perhaps you would like to see more of my travel related posts, or maybe more beauty? There might be something in particular that you would love to read, if so I'd love to know. If you happen to have any suggestions I'd really appreciate them. You could email me or tell me in the comments...


If I don't speak to you before, I hope you have a lovely Christmas :)

    1. Totally agree, I think I need a schedule as much for myself as for readers. Between blogging, flying and normal life I'm usually luckily to know what day is! :) x
