What's New On Ellis Tuesday In 2016


Beauty Blog 2016

I have to say, I'm really proud of what I managed to achieve on here in 2015. I went into more detail in my looking back on 2015 post but basically I fell even more in love with blogging, which I didn't think was possible, worked with some of my favourite brands, discovered new ones and managed to meet lots of fantastic people. I've been thinking of ways to take Ellis Tuesday into the New Year and here are a few of them. As the year progresses I may well come up with a few more but at the moment these are the ones that I want to make happen, starting this month. I'd love to hear what you think of them and if there's anything else you'd like to see, or see more of, on here in 2016 be sure to let me know below.

Monthly Giveaways
I've been really fortunate to work with some incredible brands when it comes to giveaways in the past but the only problem is that in most cases there is only one winner. As a thank you to all of you who continue to read and support Ellis Tuesday I thought that I would introduce little monthly giveaways where all of the products are ones that I've purchased myself. This way there will be twelve winners over the course of the year and I can share the love with more of you in 2016. I might have even picked up a few things in the sales for the first couple of giveaways. How does this sound?

YouTube
This is something that I've been meaning to do for well over a year now but I finally want to make it a reality in 2016. And my main motivation for getting it all up and running is my trip to Florida later in the year. I'm planning on vlogging my trip over there which is something I can't wait to do. Has anyone got any tips on where to start when it comes to all things YouTube?

More Entertainment
What I mean by this is more of a focus being placed on book and movie reviews. Whilst I used to have my monthly What I've Been Watching series, I'd love to re-introduce it this year but maybe with a bit of a twist. It would also be great to integrate book reviews and even posts on particular TV shows or my favourite movie genres/directors/actors throughout the year too. Who would like to see more posts like these?

Advertising
I've also decided to start offering up ad space on my blog. There's a full page dedicated to this above, right beside my Product Directory or you'll find it by clicking here. Is advertising something that anyone would be interested in?

What do you think of these new additions to Ellis Tuesday? Is there anything that you would like to see more, or consequently, less of on here in 2016? And what are your favourite kinds of posts to read on Ellis Tuesday?
