Introducing The Romance Backlist (and A Farewell)



Image description: plain red and blue text that read "Introducing the Romance Backlist".

Long time no see! It’s been *checks calendar* way over a year since I last wrote something, and I can’t express how sad that makes me. The evil combo of exhaustion and shitty life events became this epic burnout that ended up with me ghosting my own blog. This place was a labor of love and yearning for connection with a community that’s given me a lot throughout the years, and a deep wish to give something of myself to the genre that changed my life. And now eight years have gone by and not only have I made the connections I craved, but they have surpassed every expectation and wild hope I had. So it was really hard to come to the realization that I no longer could, or even wanted to, keep up with the blog, even if I still saw myself as a blogger/reviewer. But I also love the genre and love talking about all the books, and I’m proud of the way this blog made me a better reader, so when I had this sudden idea that I could start fresh and change the dynamic and talk about books again, I felt the same excitement and joy I had all those years ago when I first started to blog.

There’s been a lot of talk about the state of traditional blogging and reviewing. I don’t have the answers to the issues nor do I want to get into it now, but we all want to talk about books, we all want to discuss the genre, and we all want to maintain that sense of community, which is why I believe that blogs are (still) viable resources and places to gather and connect. And also, I want to do this for myself, because I really love it. So I’m going for it and instead of picking back up where I left, I’m moving on to a new blog that will have a similar essence, but with some pointed differences. I will only feature books that are at least one year old, so no new releases. I will write reviews, kind of, but they won’t be as structured as what I used to do, more like musings about the genre and the way each book fits within it. I want to experiment a bit, see if there’s an audience for a blog that won’t cover anticipated releases (please, let there be an audience for it!). I want to look back a bit, maybe revisit old favorites, or do whatever! I could’ve done that here, and it’s incredibly bittersweet to say goodbye to Romance Around the Corner, but I really like the idea of starting from scratch and see how the experience I’ve gathered these past few years shapes this new site. And mostly, I just want to know what it feels like to have a blog whose name isn’t a mouthful! The Romance Backlist won’t be a prolific blog, simply because I can’t keep up. I haven’t flexed this muscle in a while, and I had forgotten what it takes to write a blog post, but I want it to be consistent, so my initial goal is to write one post each month, which doesn’t sound like much, but at this point it’s the only realistic commitment I can make. We’ll see how it goes. If you go there now, I have a post up giving more details about the blog and the plans I have for it.

As for Romance Around the Corner, well, it will stay up for as long as Blogger allows it, but I’m saying goodbye for now. I’m thankful for every person who read, commented, subscribed, and emailed. I have met so many amazing readers and authors that I still can’t believe my luck. Even better, I get to talk about romance novels every day, and that’s all because of this blog and the community that welcomed me. It’s been an absolute blast, and I can’t wait to see what the new blog brings. I hope you join me! (*threatening voice* you better join me)

Housekeeping Note: if you're reading this on your email because you subscribe to the blog, and you want to keep up with the new blog via email, you will have to subscribe again (go to this link and click on the "subscribe" link at the top of the page). Same goes for those who want to follow the new blog that way.

  3. Media Buying

    Media buying is the process of purchasing advertising space in various media locations. Events such as Proctor & Gamble Chief Brand Officer, Mark Prichard's crusade against fraudulent agency practice and the brand safety crisis that engulfed YouTube , have justifiably led to a greater scrutiny of media buying. Oh, and BTW, this is called retail arbitrage.” And when you find something online for super cheap that you then resell, it's called online arbitrage.” Google it. Learn it. As an industry-leading DRTV media buying agency, we combine extensive research, market experience and knowledge along with fine-tuned analytics to provide the most effective DRTV media buying campaigns - with demonstrated results. Every year, various sites come which allow you to make money, either by posting good content or entering data. Learning how to make money online can be confusing and intimidating.

    Just get your custom affiliate link created by the vendor and start promoting it. Sell metaphysical related products. When starting out you can try promoting affiliate products without having your own website, and as you progress you can get a site and streamline the business. You can create beautiful websites using WordPress and its classic themes. Get access to the granular data you need to understand and optimize media buying. Lina Lugova is a digital marketing expert at white label programmatic advertising DSP Epom , where she has created, developed, and managed growth strategies for top brands and solution providers. They should also consider the needs and demands of specific ad campaigns and accordingly recommend the best media channels and sources. If you own your home, or your landlord permits it, you can earn money online by sharing your home with others.

    Every single one of them is a scam, and you will waste your time and money paying for any courses or training that you buy from those guys. I have dozens of blogs including MoneyConnexion that give me 7 figure yearly income. Online courses - Creating an online course is a great way to make money online, but don't expect to get rich doing it. Like with anything else out there, there is a lot of competition with many people vying for the attention of others when trying to sell their courses. Traditional digital media buying agencies that don't have any data mining, data analytics, and machine-learning capabilities cannot possibly justify this bloated 20 percent campaign management fee. A lot of hours, minutes and seconds dedicated to media buy campaigns. I learned this method of making online income when I was working with a client in the real estate domain. https://www.reviewengin.com/how-media-buying-will-help-you-to-make-money-online/

  4. Welcome to one of the largest affiliate marketing programs in the world. Affiliate Network and marketing platform: There are affiliate networks and marketplaces that would help you find new affiliate programs. Once sorted, you know how to make money online in India & are all ready to launch your online business. You can start your own online page wherein you can offer your services. Digital marketing services give local businesses the option to advertise to a vast number of people; a lot more people than they'd be able to reach without an online presence. Running a beauty shop that's built on strong ethos and values that resonate with nature and animal lovers is one of the hottest online business ideas right now. Currently, affiliate marketing is one of the biggest sources to earn money online. Target a new audience with the same products (e.g., LED shoes can be marketed to music festival goers or runners).

    In multi-level marketing programs , the sales force is rewarded not only for the sales they close but also for sales made by people they've recruited to the program. While you could technically promote an online course someone has created and just arrange a direct revenue share with them, letting a network such as ClickBank or Commission Junction handle the payment and product delivery puts a more serious note on your affiliate marketing. Their affiliate program provides up to $182 payouts, and you can only withdraw your funds after you receive $300 of commissions. TeeSpring allows you to create and sell apparel and takes care of production and distribution. For example, if we look at Shopify , who built a robust independent affiliate program around their online store platform, they can achieve much more from their affiliates by offering them more resources and more guidance. https://www.reviewengin.com/simple-tips-to-starting-an-affiliate-marketing-online-business/

Blogger likes to eat comments, so I suggest copying it before hitting "publish" just in case it doesn't go through the first time. This is a pain, I know, but it's the only solution/prevision I can think of, and it will save you the frustration of losing a comment. Also, thanks for visiting!
