For years I wondered what to do with this blog. Life’s of course changing, and where I had lots of time when starting my website nettyroyal.nl in 1998, some years later I spent all my evenings behind my computer. As I was working almost fulltime during the day I had to update my website in the evenings and at weekends. Although it was fun doing the result was problems with my shoulders and arms. And after about ten years I really needed to do other things once in a while. Which is one of the reasons my website hasn’t been updated so often anymore as in the past and I stopped posting news. I among others love reading, travelling … which of course also takes time. I am currently reading Simon Sebag Montefiore’s thick Romanov book.
When I started this blog in the Summer of 2012 I really had no idea what to do with it. Still I am a relatively new blogger. I think general information, exhibitions and genealogical news should be found on my website. This blog however is an additional medium to write about royals: books, genealogy (in a somewhat more extensive way), history, travelling, exhibitions, royal events. I have a rather big archive of my own digital pictures from events and travels of the past, let’s say 13 years or so. So there is still a lot to write about. Most of the time it won’t be huge posts, but I’ll do my best to post something informative and vary a bit.
But a blog can’t do without visitors, feedback, suggestions … so please let me know what you think of this blog, what could be change, what you like or find totally boring. I would be very grateful. Comments can be posted at the bottom of a post.
