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 […]

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 […]
