I did Vlogmas last year and loved it, but at the same time, daily vlogging during the busiest month of the year is no easy task.
This December, I still wanted to have the fun of Vlogmas, without the MASSIVE COMMITMENT of making a video every single day, sometimes just for the sake of having something to upload, even when I knew it wasn’t my most compelling work.
So, instead, I decided to dedicate December to day in the life vlogs. There might not be one every single day, but all of my videos in December will be family daily life / fly on the wall vlogs. So no chatty sit down videos or travel vlogs this month, but those will be back in January alongside a little bit more day in the life vlogging.
It’s perfect for me, because it means I get to flex my daily vlogging skills again (which I found so incredibly valuable last year), but I’m not at the risk of burn out. Without the pressure to upload every single day, it means that everything I upload this December will be things that I am excited to put out there and things that I think (or hope!) will be interesting to watch. I’m really excited with my Vlogmas compromise, as I really think it gives me the best of both worlds.
I thought I would use Snapshots and Scenes this month to showcase my December daily life videos so far. It’s a bit of a cop out perhaps ; ) But anyone who has done Vlogmas or any other intense vlogging challenge will know how much time it takes up. Plus, I often feel that I should mention my Youtube channel on my blog a bit more. There are some things that I will always have the urge to put into words, and of course there are always photos that I will want to share on my blog. But Youtube is where the majority of my day-to-day life ‘content’ is now, and I often forget to link the two platforms.
As it’s the beginning of December, there are just two videos so far – but if you are interested in following along with our daily life throughout the festive season, you can subscribe over on Youtube.
