So, if you’re on Twitter, Facebook, etc, you’d have probably noticed the term ‘Blogmas’ being mentioned; if not, don’t worry! All shall be explained in a moment.
‘Blogmas’ is a Blogger’s Christmas-so, an advent calendar of Christmas content, in essence. So, for the twenty five days leading to Christmas Day, there’ll be a new Christmas-themed post. Unlike Blogtober earlier this year, Christmas is a theme specific enough for me to write about. (Read my blogtober post here.) As I post daily, my posts will be Christmas themed until the end of the year.
As it’s the first of December, I look back to what November was like for me. (Call it seasonal nostalgia!)
I had three things published; The Breached asked me to write An Introduction To Aspergers, and I pitched A Diet Change to Brain Fud, and my column, Do Not Assume The Worst, was published.
Posting daily meant I also had to plan in advance for this month (because, lets face it, I don’t write everything all on the day. I don’t live at home, typing permanently.) So: there’ll be a guest post or two on the blog. I also have some brands on board for a big collaboration.
I’ve also been thinking about a Christmas Card Project. Earlier this year, I was gifted some cards from Say Nice Things (see the post here); I’ll be despatching cards to various Bloggers and relatives. I did have to top my stock up, so chose this design from Dodopad LTD.
As to Journalism?
I went out on my first assignment, which involved meeting someone for quotes; I also filed a successful Freedom Of Information request. I can also roughly get down a dictation in Shorthand at about forty words a minute. Law is a bit of a struggle at the minute-but I’m revising all the variously mentioned acts.
Lets see where December takes us!
