It’s 1 December, which means the start of Vlogmas 2016 and this year Taylor Hearts Travel is getting in on the fun! I’m SO excited! You can see my first Vlogmas video further down…
What is Vlogmas?!
So, if you’re not in the blogging/vlogging bubble, let me explain. It basically means that for every day of December, in the run up to Christmas and New Year’s Eve I’ll be publishing a new video. Well, that’s the plan anyway!
31 videos is definitely a challenge for me. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do more of and a recent session at Blogfest gave me the nudge to actually get on with it. I’m a go-getter when it comes to travel and everything else in my life, so it’s time to stop making excuses. I have loads to learn when it comes to YouTube and editing seems to take me ages, but hopefully Vlogmas will be a chance to hone my skills.
I’ve been in London today for #Blogfest16 ? It’s a blogging conference run by @mumsnettowers and it was really good! Despite my train being cancelled this morning, then delayed and my train home now being cancelled too ? I’ve had such a great day meeting new bloggers, being inspired by speakers and getting the nudge I needed to make more vlogs. I even met the gorgeous @davinalpmccall who is just as lovely and inspiring in real life. Not bad for a Saturday, eh? ? #bloggerslife #blogfest
December is also my favourite month. There’s obvs Christmas to celebrate, but also my birthday. And the end of the year usually brings about travel plans for the following year, which is super exciting. Where to go and what to see – oh the possibilities! I can’t wait to capture this month, especially as my mini-explorer is now one. He’s going to love the lead up to Christmas.
But, Christmas is all about giving, so enough about what’s in it for me.
What’s in it for you?
I’m a family travel blogger so of course I’ll be sharing some travel bits, but a large chunk of my Vlogmas will be a behind the scenes, if you like.
I’ll be sharing my Christmas plans, decorations and presents. I’ll be letting you know what I’ve been up to and generally sharing my excitement for the month! You’ll also get to come to my birthday celebrations, a Hygge session, as well as Disneyland Paris. Yep, we’re off to that magical place this year so I’ll be bringing you along.
I guess I’ll be letting you get to know me, which I *hope* is a good thing. These vlogs are less about being glossy and more about sharing. The plan is to keep them quite short so they’re easy watching.
If there is anything you want to know, want to see or have you an idea for one of the vlogs then please do leave a comment or get in touch. It doesn’t have to be about travel. Perhaps you want to know my fave Christmas film, why we chose Nova’s name, where I’m off to next – whatever it is lemme know. I’ve got 31 days to fill after all!
I won’t publish every video on here, but I’ll aim to share a round-up maybe once a week. You can subscribe to the Taylor Hearts Travel YouTube channel here – that way you’ll see them all. Here’s the first one…
Happy Vlogmas! X
