I've been dabbling (at best) with blogging and The Corner Apartment on and off for maybe a year and a half now. It's been great. It really has. I love being able to write whatever I want, research things I'm curious about, connect with others who share my interests, and play around with and teach myself graphic design.

There are so many wonderful sites and bloggers out there. So. Many. It's overwhelming, really, how you could spend a whole day doing nothing but read them. Such an influx of information has lead me to an idea, something that I think fits perfectly with my personality while being unique to the big blogging community.

My main goal is to focus on the writing. I'm going to do longer pieces, researched and well thought-out articles while still maintaining my connection to and passion for history, art and style. I want to learn things, convey them to readers and talk about things that matter. As much as I love putting outfit posts together, it's just not where I want to go.

Additionally, I want to do away with all the consumerism and product-pushing. While I think affiliate programs and brand partnerships are great for some people, I want The Corner Apartment to be a place that stays focused primarily on written content. I am, after all, a journalist (or will be). 

I hope you all are as excited as I am for the changes to come.

Happy Christmas!

  1. Looking forward to the "new" Corner Apartment. Merry Christmas!

  2. Can't wait to read some of the new articles!

  3. You're right, so overwhelming with all the great people blogging out there! How do you make yourself stand out?
    I love your idea about a greater focus on writing and look forward to seeing what comes of it!

  4. It can be so hard to develop your blogging voice, even after a long time of posting! I think all bloggers, no matter who they are, struggle with it, and are always considering how to evolve. The best blogs with the strongest voices stay true to their interests and passions, so I think you're on the right track!! xoxo
