Last year I set myself the challenge of taking part in Blogmas. I'll be honest, it was a lot of work posting every day throughout December in the lead up to Christmas Eve. I mean, a lot a lot but I loved it. It really did help me get into the festive mood, even more than I already was.
This year, I won't be taking part. Sorry to all of you that enjoyed my Blogmas posts last year.
Instead I thought I'd take part in Vlogmas. If you didn't know, S and I have our own YouTube channel. It's nothing serious, just a place for us to share little videos of our days out and adventures with family and friends we don't see very often.
The support we've had already is so overweleming, so thank you to every one of you who has already subscribed. It really does mean a lot!
The thing is, we haven't uploaded a video since our little trip to Skegness in August and I've been itching to get something recent uploaded. I thought seeing as this will be our first Christmas in our new house, I really wanted to document it.
As this is our first ever time taking part I wasn't quite sure the best way to approach it so I created a little poll on Twitter recently and asked you wonderful lot, whether you'd prefer daily vlogs or weekly vlogs and, I was actually surprised weekly vlogs won. So rather than uploading a video everyday throughout December, we will be posting weekly vlogs every Saturday evening at 6pm.
My mental health isn't something I've ever discussed here on the blog. Not because I'm ashamed but because I often try to keep my blog positive and 'care free'.
It is, however, something I've contemplated talking about for a while, it's just not something I wanted to rush into. I wanted to be sure that I was 150% happy with the blog post rather than rush into things.
Talking about mental health can be a senstive subject. Either for those talking about it or those reading or listening. The important thing to remember is, you're not alone even if you may feel like you are and everyone deals with their mental health differently, so just because one person chooses to deal with it a certain way doesn't mean thats the wrong way to deal with it.
I thought as we're approaching the end of 2016, which has unexpectably turned into rather a big challenge in itself for me personally, that this was probably the perfect time to write this post.
