If you haven't come across A Beautiful Mess, then I urge you to go look as soon as you have finished reading this.
This is one of my favourite examples of a blog transitioned into a business. I have read this blog for a few years and watching the transition they have been making is wonderful and partly my inspiration for giving this ago last year and trying advertising (which I may return too when I can handle the VAT aspect of it, as well as Sara's Texture Crafts).
The blog business now employs staff and so the concept of 'blogzine' has really taken over... but that's ok, because the transition hasn't left you feeling like you were a personal part of the original blog now left behind. Instead you feel like you are still enjoying the journey of it all.
The team still captures a true 'lifestyle' image, which I find is often lost in other blog businesses... their posts are aspirational, but achievable and include crafts, food, fashion and home.
Go check it out!
Have a wonderful day... Sara x
