HOW MY BLOG IS GOING TO BE CHANGING




I joined the blogging scene back in 2011. I started out on Youtube predominately as a beauty & fashion blogger, later incorporating mental health and advice content. I then launched this blog in 2012/2013 as a place to do more impromptu stuff, in depth reviews and a general bubble to talk about anything and everything. 

Fast forward 4 years and I'm now a 26yr old full-time blogger, girl bossing her way in making her dreams come true. Its been one hell of a journey. I've laughed, I've cried, I've wanted to give up, I've travelled to lots of different countries, I've even made documentaries and I'm a soon to be published author.

But in all honesty, I've only really found my place within the blogging community in the last 12-18 months. Its taken me a long while to have the courage to talk about the stuff that matters to me, but also to gain the knowledge and talent in how to execute my thoughts and ideas, in a way that people would want to click 'watch' or 'read more'.

Gone are boring beauty reviews that I felt I had to do, because everyone else was. Gone are low quality imagery and bashing out daily posts for the sake of views and consistency. The list goes on.

Since summer 16', I've really worked on bringing my blog to life and elevating it in a way that makes me feel v. proud. I've worked on my direction and branding and thought long and hard about what I wanted people to get from visiting graciefrancesca.com. You've probably noticed a change in my content too and by the engagement and growth I've had, you all appear to like it.

I think I've moved away from certain blogger cliche's and I've created a unique space that stands out in an oversaturated market. My main focus point is advice and making my readers feel something when they flick through the archives of this space. My passion is social taboos and women's issues and I finally feel like my blog reflects that. 


I've tried to care less about what others think of me and more about how my experiences can help people. As I've grown as Grace, graciefrancesca.com has too - and thats something I'm forever grateful for. I don't want to be stagnant and lost, or bored and uninspired and for the most part, I'm not. 

I guess I'm just focused on me and slaying in my own lane. Don't get me wrong, I do have days where everything is just a pile of fucking shit but thats life. Im finally in a place where I genuinely love where my blogging business is heading and that makes me happy.

But what that being said, I want to take things up a notch and develop my site into something thats even more 'me'. I change a lot as it is, but my personal growth in the last 6 months has been ridiculous and I feel it needs to reflect through my posts.

So here's where we're at with how things are *slightly* changing for the foreseeable future.



Streamlined content. 
I actually did this back in 2016 but I'm going to be doing it even more over the period of my blog relaunch. I'm doing this to enable easier navigation through my content for you guys, as well as more identifiable branding for companies who want to work with me. If I have a smaller amount of categories, I think I'll be able to create more content that I love and have a passion for.

I'm going to be ditching beauty & makeup but creating an entire new category for self care. I won't give everything away but things will be EVEN more advice based and I'm bloody excited. 

More outfit posts.
For a long while I couldn't decide how I wanted to dress. My style was evolving but I was also confused with where it was going. My weight also fluctuates quite a bit too so trying to put outfits together when you're bigger one month and smaller the next is difficult. However, I'm in a better place with my personal style now and I'm excited to shoot with my photographer Jade and share some looks with you. 

An open diary forum.
When trying to decide where I'm taking this blog, the best way to describe it is 'a public diary'. I want to share my secrets and my experiences, as well as touch upon self love and my eating disorder. I've been inspired by music and friends to be even more honest and share my opinion on things I've previously shy'd away from. Religion/spirituality being one of them.

An 'old school' blogging vibe
Although the blogging world has changed and its important we go with it, I personally want to go back to basics. I don't mean taking selfies on a 2006 webcam, but I do mean shorter blog posts and not being afraid to self shoot in my bedroom. I want to share things I've done or want to do & chat to you about things I've been loving or hating. Although my new blog design and relaunch will be glossy, the root of my content will be raw and not overly edited.

How does that all sound?

I'm basically just get excited to become the person I'm meant to be and take you all on the journey with me.

  8. Its great to see someone be different, the blogging world is becoming bland and over processed, out of the reach of mere mortals. It's becoming more like the fashion magazines that pushed so many to read blogs as an alternative 'real' view.

  18. I love this so much. I'm going through a period of 'confusion' and simplification.
    What I thought I wanted to blog about, I've learnt isn't really niche and probably already has a million and one blogs on it.
    I'm starting undergoing my own little project overhaul and starting a fresh. I hope to see results similar to yours in a few years time! You're such an inspiration to not just the blogging community but a lot of people! x
