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.
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!
So in the next 30 minutes, every 30 minutes, LFB will be dropping each article (a total of 16) from it’s very first issue!
