Until now, I had not really though of the future of What Corinne Did. I was blogging for the pleasure of it (and will still of course) but I was not looking any further. I guess new year means new something, no? Or at least new ideas, new thoughts. Are whatever new you want. Although I am pleased with What Corinne Did has achieved, I want more.
And it is normal to want more. To not want to settle.
So I was thinking. Where do I want to take What Corinne Did in 2019? 2018 has been a year of change for my blog and social media. I switched to fashion blogging, then decided to balance fashion off with baking and now I am wondering if I should go back into lifestyle.
Because lifestyle is a larger niche and allows to touch more topics.
My Instagram also went through some changes. I used to love flatlays. I still do. But I was JUST doing flatlays. And then stopped entirely. And then, my Instagram switched to just fashion. Which I love. And which will continue to love. However, this year, I am trying to diversify my fashion content. There will still be floral arches and spectacular displays. But in 2019, I will try to have a mix of urban and floral. Which is why I am hiring a photographer, and shooting for the first time with him this Sunday!
Get ready for some typical London landmarks, buildings and architecture as well as some more urban shots with bolder outfits. Because switching to fashion had me try bolder combination and styles, which I have been loving! I am also considering making videos of my baking and posting to IGTV. What do you think?
So this is for Instagram.
What of everything else?
As far as the blog is concerned, as previously said, fashion and baking content will still be there. Starting with something quite cool for popcorn day! But I was wondering, maybe I should go back to doing some beauty content. I’ve got some ideas! And also, why not, some more tech posts and tutorials? My Photoshop tutorial was very well received so I am thinking of doing more!
But the biggest change that my content will go through is… Youtube.
Yes, you read right!
I have been thinking about it for quite some time now but never took the plunge. Truth is, although I am not intimidated by a camera, I never dared do videos as… I hate my accent when I speak English. I am a French native speaker and although I am now bilingual, I can’t stand my accent. So I always dismissed doing Youtube videos. Because most of my readership is English anyway.
BUT… considering I will go through some VERY BIG changes this spring and I will have A LOT of time on my hands (not saying more, I don’t want to jinx it!), I thought this would be the perfect occasion!
Still not recording in English though. Yes, I will record in French but add English subtitles to all my videos. Hope you won’t mind. Will you still watch? Will the English subtitles be enough or will you only watch videos in English?
Because I have so many ideas! Not just fashion or baking, but also books, beauty, tips and all. Maybe I should do Photoshop tutorials on Youtube too, what do you think?
I am thinking of starting filming in the coming weekends to have some videos in advance for when I actually start. And in the meantime, if you fancy, go give me a follow on Youtube so that you get updates for when my videos start coming out.
