Today marks the beginning of the twelfth month of 2016; it’s December. That means this year is coming to a close and it’s just brilliant to be honest. Not the ending part, but this year has been a good year blogging wise. I’m quite proud of myself and what’s a better way to end the year, than end it with a bang: I’m doing blogmas!!
What is Blogmas Marc? The whole idea of Blogmas is doing 25 days of consecutive blogposts, starting with the first of December. It’s a bloody fantastic idea which I haven given a lot of thought. I didn’t think about wanting to do it, but if I could do it. I attempted to do blogtober and well, we all know how that worked out for me. I failed.
But in the words of one of favourite poets: “All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. Try again. Fail again. Fail better” – Samuel Beckett.
I’m going to smash this December, I just know I will. I’m going to do this and I will all take you on this beautiful journey. (I truly hope this will be beautiful, I haven’t got a clue to be honest)
It’s the first time I’m doing this Blogmas-life – not too surprising when I started blogging in April – and one thing worries me: I live in the Netherlands. Yeah, I can hear you all thinking; what has that got to do with anything. Well lads and lassies, around here Christmas is small. It’s growing, but it’s still really small compared to the UK and the USA. I guess in Germany it’s quite big too, but for some reason the Netherlands, na-ah.
I also see this as a opportunity. I can give a whole new perspective to the Blogmas scene, it’s unique and maybe refreshing. Oh dear, that sounded arrogant. Oh well…
I’m just going to do it and I will have a lot of fun in the proces and if nobody reads it, well I will have had a lot of un and that’s worth something too.
I hope you will enjoy this month and it’s horrible I’m sorry (obviously not, you can bugger off). ‘Ave a good one folks!
