Where To Travel and Beyond Is Going Next…

to travel and beyond

I want to start off with THANK YOU!! Last year, I changed my posting schedule on To Travel and Beyond and went from 3 days a week to 5 days a week and it has been incredible. I have found support in places I never expected, from daily comments to emails asking for more advice, posts, etc. I am so grateful for all of my readers  friends, and for this space. I know I say it all of the time, but it’s so incredibly true.

Now as my wedding season is kicking off, I think that I need to step back a little bit from blogging 5 days a week in this space. Since starting a blog for Enchanting Events, I want to be able to provide great, quality content for each blog, which means limiting myself for now. I am actually saddened to post less here, but with summer, weddings, more travels and so much more, I don’t want to post things that were only half thought out.

I have hundreds of ideas on my Trello boards about posts to write in the future but not enough time to put them together. I hope that once wedding season slows down that I am able to get back to posting more often, and I also wish that you will stick around! I promise to continue to come to this space often and keep it a full functioning blog, likely with posts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. With that promise, I also want to introduce a new addition to To Travel and Beyond…

A DESTINATIONS page!

This has been a work in progress for several months now, and I am really excited to finally turn the page to public and inform everyone of what it is. As I continue to blog, I realize that while I do love posting about blog tips, my life, and other happenings, my favorite thing to talk about is traveling. I absolutely love sharing ways to get somewhere on a budget, or something new to see at a specific destination. Because of this, I have been blogging more and more about travel related posts…and I have been loving it!

I wanted to take these posts and categorize them in a way that is not only helpful but effective in planning your trips. I have broken down each location I have previously blogged about into 2 different types of categories, either a general overview of a location, or a specific place.

to travel and beyond

For example, you will see “United States” as a broad title, this includes all posts about anywhere in the United States. Underneath you will see individual states, each of these states will take you to every post about that specific location. I have also included Europe and the Caribbean.

I will continue to have more of a “lifestyle” blog but with a higher focus of travel, because that’s where my heart is! You will still see daily life posts, blog tips, etc. just not as much as travel.

The destinations page and posting schedule change will both happen on May 9th!

    YAY! i’m so excited for you and the new direction you’re headed! I love reading about the places you’ve been and things you’ve seen. It makes me want to get out there more!

      Thank you!! It means so much to hear that what I am putting out there is actually useful and inspiring. Having people like you in my life really makes it worth the time and effort!

    This is awesome. I’m sure having two blogs to maintain is going to be a lot of work, but you have the skills to keep it going. Your passion shines through and I think it’s going to be such an awesome change and I’m so excited to follow along!!! I can’t wait to see the destinations page. So so great, high five and congratulations Macy!

      Aww thank you so much, Emelia!! It means a lot to hear that. Two blogs is already proving to be a bit to handle, especially when I am lacking in good content for the Enchanting blog. I really hope taking a small step back here will lead to more creativity on both blogs. Thank you for being one of the sweetest people ever and the reason I keep doing this!

    Yay May 9th- just in time for my trip! Five days a week is HARD and honestly, I think most people are only reading blogs threeish days a week anyway. Congratulations I’m excited for you!

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      Yay!! It really is, it takes work, dedication and so much time. I’m really excited for these changes though.

    Posting 5 days is a lot of work! Not only is coming up with great content that consistently difficult, but also responding to comments and everything else that comes with running a blog! I love that you’re doing a destinations page! I can’t wait to see how everything turns out!

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      It really is tough at times! I want to make sure I am always putting out quality content that is actually helpful or inspirational, and I don’t know if I can continue that through the busy season. Hopefully taking a step back to three days a week is more helpful and I am still able to write about the things I love.

    I think what you’re doing is super wise. I think it’s a really brave, mature decision to know when to take a step back. Good for you! I also LOVE your destination page. LOVE IT! You’re a boss.

      Thank you, Annie! It means a lot to hear that. I’m really excited for the destinations page and hope it is a inspiration for others to get out there and travel.

    5 days a week is so hard to do! I’m glad you have done it but totally understand why you need to step back and breathe a little bit. I know for me that 2 days a week (Monday and Thursday) for recipes is hard enough, so kudos to you.

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      It really is! I have loved it so much but right now it is starting to be a little much, and I don’t want to slack in quality. It actually makes me even more excited to see a post from you since they are 2 days a week, it’s a nice surprise to see your name on my feed.

      • http://dashofherbs.com Kristyn | Dash of Herbs

        It really is quality over quantity. I don’t care who you are, it’s hard to pump out that many posts each week and stay on top of everything else. You will feel immensely better and more relieved. I started adding Resources posts on Saturdays, since the recipes are on Mondays and Thursday’s. I might throw in more personal posts on Saturdays too. We will see.

    I think it’s great that you’re stepping back rather than trying to keep it up and just getting burnt out. You’re awesome!

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      Thank you so much, Christine! I want to continue to share quality content, and I know that I couldn’t keep up with it fully through the busy season. I hope I am able to still write everything I want to but with fewer days.
