Lets Make Some Changes | Monday Confessions

EVOLUTION OF MY BLOG

I started blogging six years ago. That is long enough to see all sorts of changes in the industry. Keep in mind I started as a university student, who wanted to simply meet new people who are interested in beauty and fashion. I wanted to take photos, create content and just talk to you guys,  my readers. That is still the main goal of this blog.

Six years later, we changed designed at least 3 times, we are adding new content, have a very specific LOOKS, BEAUTY and TRAVEL pages which are made to cater all of your needs in those fields. I almost daily clic on Looks section and get lost in seeing how much my style evolved over years. I am not a student any more, I now like more refined pieces, I figured out what I love and what I don’t love and I am able to now afford stuff that I couldn’t as a student. One of rare perks of working life haha.

Travel section on my blog seems to be your favourite. I decided to have it as a virtual map and list of all the cities/countries I visited to give you inspiration in case you are traveling. In less than a week I will again be drinking green smoothies at the beach, so make sure to check out locations such as Thailand, Maldives, Greece, Croatia, Palm Springs, Ibiza etc if you are also after some inspiration. Its just so easy to teleport your self to another country because its only one click away. Just like those looks are from my travels, this one is from NY trip. The city that never sleeps, and its filled with its pure, wild street shots. Hope you like it!

You might be thinking why am I writing all of this? Wait for it, I think there are some changes coming.

Otvorila sam blog pre šest godina. To je dovoljno dugo da vidim razne promene u ovoj industriji. Imajte na umu da sam tada bila student na fakultetu koji je jednostavno želeo da upozna ljude i stekne prijatelje koji su zainteresovani za modu i lepotu. Želela sam da fotografišem stvari, da se javljam uvek sa novim sadržajem, da razgovaram sa vama, mojim čitateljima. To je i dalje glavni cilj ovog bloga.

Šest godina kasnije i iza sebe imamo tri dizajna, gomilu postova, na blogu sam po vašem zahtevu otvorila i neke posebne stranice koje mozete videti u gornjem meniju. Mislim naravno na LOOKS, BEAUTY i TRAVEL stranice, koje su napravljene kako bi zadovoljile vaše apetite u tim oblastima. I sama skoro svakodnevnom klikćem na ove stranice, pogotovo Looks, na kojoj se izgubim dok gledam kako mi se stil promenio u poslednjih 6 godina. Jeste, nisam više student, sada volim malo posebnije komade, mogu da priuštim skuplju odecu nego kada sam studirala. Jedna od retkih prednosti radnog života haha.

Travel stranica na mom blogu je izgleda vaš favorit. Odlucila sam se za virtuelnu mapu i listu svih drzava/gradova kako biste i vi dobili inspiraciju ukoliko idete na neke od tih mesta, ali kako biste i proputovali sa mnom preko svog računara. Za manje od nedelju dana opet ću biti na plaži i piti moj omiljeni zeleni sok, pogledajte oblasti kao sto su Tajand, Maldivi, Grčka, Hrvatska, Palm Springs, Ibica ukoliko i vama treba inspiracija pred putovanje. Lako je teleportovati se u drugu zemlju, sve je samo jedan klik udaljeno. Baš kao i ti postovi sa putovanja, ovaj je iz Njujorka. Grad koji nikada ne spava, te sam se slikala na ulici istog gde možete osetiti njegovu čar. Nadam se da vam se dopada.

Možda se sada već pitate zasto pisem sve ovo? Strpite se, promene dolaze.

WHY FIX WHATS NOT BROKEN

So if things are going better than ever, why change what doesn’t need a change. The thing is in digital time you have to move faster than you can think, and that is pretty fast, right? Its important to always have new content,more content, to have interesting angles and to be relevant. Just like six years ago, I still love what I am doing. This became my job and now I get to travel the world and have some wonderful people in my life that I feel so lucky to call my friends. Yes you! I get to travel with my best girlfriends such as Noor, Leonie, Sandra, Suzie, Victoria, Amelia, Ems, Carly, Fleur and we get to live through this together – I never want it to stop.

Because I love creating content so much I decided to take on another platform in 2016 and now I am also regular on my YouTube channel where you can see 2 videos per week from me. This is the place where you get to know me better, I try and answer to every single YT comment, I interact and get to know you. There are so many of my readers and regular followers that I now know by name, and who I speak to regularly as they watch and read my content. What is the big change then? It all seems like a bit same-same.

Actually the change is not that big but I think will make much more sense to all of us. Instead of getting into lazy summer routine, I am planning to bring you more content than ever. From today you will be able to see 5 blog posts per week, and two videos per week. That means that I will be posting a new video on my YouTube channel on Wednesday and Sunday and a new blog post on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. A lot of Travel, Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle content. More than ever I will be listening to your feedback and try to bring you content you crave.

Talking about feedback I recently noticed that some of you have really liked the new format of posts, I try to make it different so that you don’t feel that all of us bloggers make it look the same. Some of you even noticed the  photo that slides in the background. Very few of you didn’t realise what it is and thought its a glitch. Its actually a full sized image that is places “underneath” the rest of the content and if you scroll slowly you can see it in a lot of detail and the purpose of it is just more beautiful design.

So that being said I will let you explore the pages of my blog that maybe you never saw. Did you check out the SHOP page? I recently redesigned that too. There is also the “NEW IN” panel on the home page (bellow the second post) which always has my secret latest purchases in it. Thats the place where you can see it and shop it first. I am going to leave you now, with a mission to go and create more content, as now that I will be posting something 7 days a week, this journey will become more fun but also more intense. I am so excited, what do you think?

Ali zašto bi bilo ko menjao nešto što mu ide dobro? Zašto promeniti nešto čemu promena nije potrebna? Stvar je u tome da se u digitalnim profesijama morate kretati brže nego razmišljati, a to je jako brzo. Bitno je uvek imati novi sadržaj, vise postova, interesantan ugao gledanja bitno je ostati bitan u tom zanimanju. Baš kao i pre šest godina i danas uživam u ovom blogu, možda čak i više. Moj posao je sada upravo ovo. Putujem svetom i upoznajem neke neverovatne ljude. Kroz blogovanje sam ostvarila velika prijateljstva te sada putujem sa drugaricama koje ste i sami videli Noor, Leonie, Sandra, Suzie, Victoria, Amelia, Ems, Carly, Fleur u poslednjih nekoliko meseci. Sve ovo proživljavamo zajedno i ja ne želim da se to ikada promeni.

Pošto obožavam da stvaram novi sadržaj odlucila sam da u 2016 budem redovna i na novoj platformi a to je YouTube. Od sada tamo možete naći 2 videa nedeljno. To je mesto na kom me možete bolje upoznati, gde se trudim da odgovorim na sve i jedan komentar. gde vam se redovno obracam i već imam nekoliko vas koje sam zapamtila i sa kojima sam se sprijateljila jer se redovno tamo dopisujemo. Dakle sta je ta nova promena? Sve izgleda manje više isto za sada.

Zapravo promena i nije toliko velika, ali mislim da će imati više smisla za sve. Umesto lenje letnje rutine, odlučila sam da vam donesem više sadržaja nego ikada. Od danas na blogu imaćete 5 postova nedeljno i 2 videa. To znači da ćete uvek imati nešto novo od mene – svaki dan u nedelji. Sredom i nedeljom to ce biti novi video, a ponedeljkom, utorkom, četvrtkom, petkom i subotom imaćete novi blog post. Nesto na temu mode, lepote, putovanja, zživotnog stila. Više nego ikada slušaću sve vaše zahteve, komentare i želje, kako bi sadržaj na blogu bio baš ono sto želite i vi i ja.

Kada smo već kod komentara, primetila sam da vam se dopada novi format postovanja. Želim da uvek bude nesto inovativno, kako mi blogeri ne bismo svi imali iste postove. Primetili ste i da neke slike izgledaju drugacije, vece, dok su neke samo u pozadini. Neki čak ovo nisu shvatili, verovatno zbog prebrzog listanja, te su mislili da je greška u kodiranju posta. Zapravo ova slika što se pokrece je tako postavljena da izgleda kao da je ispod drugih slika.. Na njoj mozete videti detalje u neko 3D verziji i svrha joj je da ulepša dizajn posta.

Eto sada kada sam vam sve ispričala i najavila novi raspored, ostaviću vas da tražite postove koje do sada možda niste videli. Da li ste ikada kliknuli na SHOP stranicu? Skoro smo je “renovirali”. Takodje ste dosta komentarisali “New In” panel koji se nalazi na prvoj stranici bloga, ispod drugog posta, tu možete videti sve stvari koje sam tek kupila, dakle ukoliko ovo redovno pratite videćete pre svih drugih šta se to novo nalazi u mom garderoberu. Sada idem da slikam, snimam i stvaram, s obzirom da ce biti sadržaja 7 dana nedeljno ovo putovanje postaje mnogo zabavnije i intezivnije. Ja sam uzbudjena, a šta vi mislite?

I am going to leave you now, with a mission to go and create more content, as now that I will be posting something 7 days a week, this journey will become more fun but also more intense. I am so excited, what do you think?

    First I have to say that I am obsessed with these photos & your look is on point ♥
    Second thing.. I truly admire you & your work! You are such an inspiration to me when it comes to blogging. It’s not that easy to post good content every single day even when you love what you. I want to grow my blog and become a full time blogger but one thing I want the most is to stay true to myself even then. Lot’s of bloggers don’t post as often as they used to and you are sure not one of them and that is why I adore you so much!
    Can’t wait to include theglamandglitter.com into my daily routine:)

Slusas nas, vidim da si ubacila kvacice u pisanju na srpskom, sto meni ne smeta da je bez, ali nekima je smetalo, videla sam komentare, i evo, sad ih ima… Imam jedan predlog, ne znam hoces usvojiti.. Da ubacis sekciju Lifestyle gde cemo imati sve Monday Confessions i slicne postove na jednom mestu? Odgovori mi ako mozes, sjajna si i volim te Tam <3

    You already know how much of a fan & supporter of you I am Tamara, since the very early days, so to know that you are going to grow more& publish more is music to my ears & I couldn’t be happier for you! YouTube seems to be where it’s at right now, so posting consistently on this platform is a smart move. Wearing the dress as a sleeveless vest is genius. I LOVE this whole look & the vibe of the NY shots.

    Dear Tamara, Your’s is one of the most beautiful blogs out here. Not only the structure of it, I love the outfits you put together and the styling wonders you create. It is always nice to come here and see the latest.

    Love, Sachini

  29. Aug 4, 2016 / 4:58 am

    Tamara – I love your style and I love that you’re trying to do things differently than other bloggers! I try to do the same and for me that means wearing things other girls aren’t and sometimes at price points that don’t work for everyone. But, it’s true to my style and I just hope the ones that do read do love it! Keep all the content goodness coming!

Not only do I love your youtube videos, but your website is absolutely magnificent! Not just the stunning visual layout, but the in depth posts and the thought that clearly goes into making such informative content – in two languages nonetheless!…it is so impressive and inspirational and a cut above the rest. xo

    Tamara, prvo izvini zbog loseg srpskog, ja sam iz Makedonije.
    Blog najvise posecujem zbog posta iz Monday confession, te teme me bas inspirisu da i ja uradim nesto i dovedem moj zivot u red, da preuzmem stvari u mojim rukama.
    Bas bi volela kada bi imala vise posta u tom smislu takodze kada bi pisala za organizovanje obaveza, pogotovo kada si bila student, jer znam da si i ti kontrol frik.
    Sto se tice look-ova, to mi je najedonstavnije pogledati na instagramu.
    Puno pozdrava

  32. Aug 20, 2016 / 9:54 pm

    Hi Tamara!

    Congratulations on your accomplishment as an awesome blogger! I really do enjoy your blog posts and youtube videos. Looking forward to see more of your posts :)

    Cheers
