A note from me to you.
It’s been eight years since I started ‘The Pretty Blog’.
To date, seven million people have collectively spent twenty seven years on this website.
It’s been a pretty adventurous journey to say the least, which included learning many lessons. One of those lessons? The importance of moving with the times.
It's become clear that in the media world, where technology rules, your survival is dependent on your acceptance of constant change.
Accepting change is scary and taking new risks, even more so, but I've decided to be brave and go for it. From now on, 'The Pretty Blog' will be inspiring you exclusively through Instagram and Facebook.
The reason for this is really quite simple. How much time do you spend on your phone per day, scrolling through your Instagram and Facebook feeds, versus reading blogs? You do the maths.
As they say, when one journey ends, another begins. I'm therefore happy to announce the launch of Meintjes & Co, my new visual communications and strategy agency. I've been consulting on digital marketing and visual communication with a few brands over the past few months and I believe it's a service that adds tremendous value to my clients’ businesses. Along with consulting services, Meintjes & Co will offer a unique content creation service. If you're interested in learning more, you can have a look over here.
But for now, this marks the end of ‘The Pretty Blog’ as we know it and the birth of a new era.
Thank you for your love and support. Here’s to even prettier things in the future.
