Hello! Welcome to The Inky Saga, a bookish lifestyle blog for creative and entrepreneurial spirits. I think most of my followers will remember me as Lori @ Betwined Reads, but in February I finally decided to take the leap of upgrading my blog; rebranding it in the process. I had known all year that I needed a big change, but it was scary deciding to invest in myself.
I started The Inky Saga with big dreams. I’m a bookish person. I’m introverted. I’m on a perpetual search for life fulfillment in everything I do, be it reading, writing, or bullet journalling. My goal is create my own success and become self-sufficient through blogging. I also want to help others celebrate the beauty in their lives and become empowered through their creativity.
As much as I love the book blog community, I’ve always felt like I was on its fringe. I now officially feel that I’ve outgrown that period of my life and am ready to see what can come next. I’ll still be interacting with the book blog community whenever I can by participating in bookish memes or tags and reading posts to keep up with new noteworthy releases. The change is mainly in priorities for original content on my end.
On The Inky Saga, you will be able to find posts on everything from:
- Books (popular literature, non-fiction, research, recommendations, etc.)
- Bullet journalling (how to’s, spread ideas, inspiration, etc.)
- Blogging tips (post ideas, branding, SEO, collaborations, useful resources, monetization, etc.)
- Starting a creative business (creating products people want, promotion, money management, time management, etc.)
- Social media strategies (building a following, creating content, etc.)
- Living well (organization, volunteer work, thoughtful gifts, home DIY, saving money, self-care, etc.)
If any of those things sound good to you, you’re in the right place! I’m certain I will strike the right balance between everything I produce, and I promise to continue to keep you updated on everything I’m learning and doing behind-the-scenes. This blog will remain as personal and close to my heart as it’s ever been while I work to expand my reach and create stuff of value for my fellow bloggers and creatives.
I feel like my blog has kept me busier than ever before, but I’ve been so excited about everything I’m doing that it hasn’t felt too much like work yet. It’s work I love doing. Like I mentioned in my last post, I’m going out of town for a few days. I’ve been trying to plan blog posts so that it’s not quiet here while I’m away. I know it’s Women’s History Month and I want to plan some stuff around that, specifically books and the women that I find inspiring.
