As I recently announced, I was working on a new website. I finally published On Tour with NettyRoyal online on 14 February 2023. It will not replace this website, but will contain a lot of my royal travelling reports, news about royal palaces, books about royal palaces and castles, activities and exhibitions, visits of royals […]
Time for a new logo!
Recently I’ve slowly created new logos and gravatars for NettyRoyal, as the old ones didn’t look too professional. What do you think?
Hell of a week
Few posts this year on the blog thus far, which has several reasons. After a few lovely quiet days, the royal year 2023 really started off, when on Thursday 5 January the new book by Prince Harry, “Spare”, was sold already five days earlier than planned. Hell broke loose. Thousands and thousands of articles were […]
The year 2022 of NettyRoyal
Much less visitors for NettyRoyal in 2022 than in 2021. I suppose it is either because I posted less regularly, or people spent much less time online. Here is the (somewhat surprising) top 10 of posts in 2022: Instagram statistics for 2022: There are so many recent Christmas cards among the best liked posts, that […]
Happy Holidays 2022
The year 2022 is nearly over. Time to tell you I very much appreciate that you all visiting my blog. Some do already since the start in 1998 when it was a simple website, others have discovered it more recently. In October 2023 NettyRoyal (or Netty’s Royalty Blog as it was called in the first […]
Already for a while I have been thinking how I could monetize my blog. In October 2023 my website will celebrate its 25th anniversary, which seems to be almost unbelievable. In all these years I have never asked for money and made it my goal to inform people better about known and unknown royal and […]
Polls: Denmark reports
The next few weeks will see a huge amount of articles about royal castles and exhibitions that I visited in the past week. I have to say I am planning to do the exhibitions that will already end in August first. But which reports are you looking forward to most?
A new blog design
Today I have been busy changing the design of the NettyRoyal blog. The idea I had a few years to have a kind of newspaper like website was nice, but it was overall a bit too busy. Recently I found this new design, by the same theme builder, Mystery Themes. Even if pink isn’t exacly […]
The year 2021 of NettyRoyal
Another Covid-19 year has passed. While 2021 wasn’t as desastrous as 2020, it still wasn’t normal. For months everything seemed to be quite OK, and one could travel, there were weddings, and even a few glamorous state visits. But unfortunately in November it all started to get worse again and several events everybody was looking […]
It has been another Covid-19 year. Although somewhat more was possible in 2021 than in 2020, we still lacked big royal events. And just when everybody thought it was getting better, it all went worse again. But I keep on trying to look forward positively to the new year and hopefully to many lovely royal […]
