Welcome to Love from Berlin, a Berlin-based blogazine. You will find a new LFB Issue full of engaging articles the first Monday of every month. Stick around for bangin daily content as well!
Hey there, it’s Rae. As you all know, I stepped away from LFB a few weeks ago after letting you guys know that I would be throwing my energy into a complete re-design and re-imagining of how and what I wanted LFB to look and be like. And here we are, together, finally exploring the product of this evolution.
LFB has been a labor of love for many years now, but one that has grown increasingly difficult to manage on my own – especially when it comes to maintaining the level of quality and depth that I demand. Daily posting became unmanageable, especially due to a strict editorial calendar which left little wiggle room for spontaneity or sick days.
The result? LFB has now been transformed into a Blogazine. Basically this just means LFB will now feature more content but this content will be posted bi-weekly in a magazine format. For those of you needing daily content/following LFB via RSS feeds, do not fear- not only will an article from the current issue be highlighted each day, but mini daily content will also be offered.
I know it seems a bit counter-intuitive for there to be more content both daily and bi-weekly after announcing the stress daily posting has caused, but I have also opened up LFB even more and have brought on regular contributors who are going to help me along the way.
That being said, this is a huge change, and one I am not even sure will work for both you and me – so things may be in flux for a bit until I figure out just how to run a blogazine
LFB has now been transformed into a Blogazine
I am so happy to have you guys on board for this journey with me – and so excited for this change. The bottom line – at the end of the day, as we grow so should our blogs and I really think this is the step in the right direction for both me and LFB. I hope you guys will think so too!
All the best, Rae
My goal is to create a young and engaging place for interested and creative minds to come together.
For you long-time readers of LFB, you will already know who I am. For those of you just popping by for the first time, you won’t. Hi there, my name is Rae. I am an ex-pat from the US living in Berlin and I created LFB (Love from Berlin) back in 2012. Back then, LFB was much more of a hobby managed between graduate course work and – once I graduated – work life.
After working in the Start Up Scene in Berlin as a UX/UI designer, I decided to place more emphasis on blogging and photography, my other passion. At the end of 2015 in December decided to focus on LFB full time while growing my photography business along side it. Along the way I grew the LFB team, had guest writers, and began working with my friend Vici to really build the brand. Still, for the most part, LFB was a one-woman show. It has been such an incredible ride turning a passion into a career, and now I am in the stages of expanding LFB further, starting with turning LFB into a blogazine.
In addition to expanding LFB, I’m busy dreaming up creative projects, working on my photography business, skateboarding, and spending time with friends and my boyfriend – for me the most important aspect when it comes to choosing how I spend my time both on and off the clock is to spend
it either tangibly creating the ideas I dream up in my head, or spending quality time with the people I care about doing things I love.
I am happiest when I am able to combine both, as ultimately, in every facet of my life – whether it is on LFB or otherwise – my goal is to create a fresh and engaging space for interested and creative minds to come together.
I have a lot of big goals for where I want to go personally and artistically in 2017 and beyond, and I am excited to share these hopes and dreams with the LFB community.
