Vlogmas 2016 and the #adventchallenge

It is the 30th November meaning that tomorrow is the start of Vlogmas. I was going to do this last year but between my Master’s and a five-day power cut and flooding I would have failed. So this year I am feeling a lot more optimistic.

So for me Vlogmas will be a little different mainly because it will centre around the Bible Society’s Advent Challenge. Where each day they email a few challenges to pick and to do something good for someone else.

I love the different way that people do Vlogmas as we have all been given this project that we all do a little differently depending on your own style and channel. So focus more about their personal life or about their channel’s content be it books or beauty.

So this year I am going to focus on charity and doing good rather than the commercial and capitalistic side. Saying that I am currently being a Christmas Temp in a shop and yes, I understand what irony is.

You too can sign up for the Advent Challenge on the Bible Society website to receive the emails about the daily challenges. I think that even if you are not a Christan that you should consider doing this as it will be a great way for you to send some Christmas spirit this year.

So that is what Vlogmas is going to be full of, parts of my daily life with charity and doing good in the world each day.

This will also help me get out of my own head a bit because I won’t be focusing on myself so much as I have something to distract me.

Also warning for those who are going to follow this because I am going to film, edit and upload on the same day. Not film one day and then edit and upload the next because I wanted each day to have the challenge so I start December 1st.

But I a prepared – I even made the thumbnail and title card:

All prepared for #vlogmas 2016 – end card and thumbnail outline are done!
