Happy New Year! A renewed focus on hotels with pool and poolside villas

Happy New Year, may 2018 bring you as much love, happiness, peace and serenity as you wish.

I hope you had a restful break and are ready to tackle the New Year.  I’m not one for resolutions but I do like the sense of new beginnings that the month of January brings.

Last year, I had shared my personal and blog goals.  The year didn’t turn out exactly as planned (of course life gets in) but most of those goals were achieved.

As for the blog, the same strategy that I had listed will apply.  However, there will be a slight change of focus for the blog which I wanted to let you know about.

From the Poolside is now only about poolside villas and hotels with pool

From this year, the blog will be true to its name and feature ONLY hotels, villas and B&Bs with pool.  Indoor pool, outdoor pool, heated pool, private pool in a room… in short they will need to have a pool to warrant a post on the blog

So this is how it’ll work

  • villas, b&Bs and hotels with pool will be published on the blog
  • all other finds will be reserved to my newsletters subscribers.  Do sign up here if you want to get them
  • articles of interest on the topic of chic and family friendly hotels and villas will be shared via my Facebook page
  • our stays in hotels and villas will be, as this year, first presented on Instagram, either via the stories or the main feed, before getting a full review on the blog.

So here you go, you have four different ways of getting your regular dose of inspiration.

Why am I doing this?

The main reason I’m doing this is to simplify my content generation process.  I come across so many beautiful places that I can’t keep up and post about them on the blog.  By selecting to publish only about villas and hotels with pool, I am reducing the amount probably by half.

In addition, I do want to give my subscribers something else than on the blog. I currently share new hotel openings first there for instance. Going forward, I’ll have special newsletters on a place or a destination as and when I come across them.

I’d be interested in your thoughts about this new approach. Let me know in the comments.

Oh, and if you have 5 minutes to spare, it would make me very happy if you filled this very quick readers’ survey.
