Hey, y’all! I know I’ve been a little quiet this month, but it’s because I’ve been working hard (maybe a little too hard) behind the scenes on new content and other improvements for the site.
What improvements you ask?
Well, I’ve partnered with a network for bloggers who will manage the ads and everything you’re used to seeing on the site.
What does that mean and why did I dedicate an entire post to it?
It means that the way you view ads here will change.
Usually, for story posts, I try to limit the number of ads that are shown, and place them in the sidebar and toward the very bottom of the page. With the new changes, they’ll appear throughout the post (just like they do in my mod recommendation and tutorial posts) instead of their usual placements. Maybe we can treat them like commercial breaks?
I’ve held off on partnering with any networks (rules are a little different regarding ads than they are with Adsense and WordAds–my current providers) for the longest time because I want your time here to be as enjoyable as possible, especially when it comes to the content I’m passionate about–my story; and while that’s still my number one priority, I want to accept this opportunity that’s been presented to me, so I can earn a little cash for the work I do here (and have the site finally pay for itself).
I’ve gone back on forth on this so many times, because I do not want to disappoint y’all, so I’m hoping— No. I know y’all will be cool with this because y’all are amazing and supportive and I love y’all ♥
Yes! I’ll be going through all my older articles (I’ve already started!) and cleaning them up. I’ve changed themes a few times over the years, so the formatting is a little off on some of them; and with all the new mods we’re constantly being blessed with, older ones could use a few updates.
There are some slight grammar/punctuation issues with the earlier episodes of Camilla’s story too
that are starting to get on my nerves, so I’ll be cleaning those up as well.
I’m almost done with my newest mod recommendation post, Must-Have Mods for City Living (a request from one of my readers with perfect timing because I have plans to do one for every pack), so keep an eye out for that sometime early next month.
For readers of Camilla’s story, I’m done writing the next episode, so I just need to get the build, poses, and wardrobe together so I can start shooting. I hope to have it out sometime this week. Now, would be the perfect time to catch up if you need to!
Speaking of Camilla’s story, WordPress has this new feature that allows you to add podcast-style audio to posts. So, I was thinking of maybe, possibly making an audio book style version of the story. It would be narrated by me (y’all have no idea what I sound like so that may or may not be appealing, lol) and accompany each episode for those who like to read on-the-go. I would really love to know what y’all think about this, so can y’all help me out by answering this poll?
In my downtime, I’ve been posting unedited photos of one of my many random gameplays with Camilla, this one taking place in Tartosa, on Tumblr so check it out if you’d like to see Camilla get into gameplay shenanigans.
And I think that’s it. At home, we’re nearing the end of the school year, so once the summer months roll in, I should, hopefully, have a little more free-time to post, and I’m looking forward to it.
