So this year I’ve made the decision to do Vlogmas over on my YouTube channel! If you don’t know what vlogmas is, it’s basically a video every single day up until Christmas Eve. So that’s 24 videos, eek! Quite a challenge, ey?
So why am I doing this? Believe me, I’ve asked myself the same question! Partly because I like a challenge. I feel like I’ve become very comfortable with blogging and YouTube is still something that I find challenging. So what better way to get more confident with vlogging than throwing myself right in at the deep end?!
I’m really enjoying editing our little videos and although I still have a lot to learn, I think I’m improving. I’m learning new tricks all the time and am definitely becoming more confident in my editing abilities.
But I guess the main reason I’m doing this is for the memories. Christmas is our absolute favourite time of year and being able to capture the magic to look back on is a pretty amazing thing. I’ve always loved taking photos, and I don’t think that passion will ever go away, but I am starting to realise the beauty of video more and more. I’ll often sit with the kids and watch back our holiday videos and you’re transported right back to that moment. Which is something that isn’t quite the same with photos.
We are now six days into vlogmas and my videos so far have included a Poundland haul, a trip to pick our Christmas tree, Christmas jumper collections and more.
But I think my favourite video so far is this one, which is just a normal day at home for us but special moments none the less…
Here’s my most recent video which I really enjoyed putting together…
Over the next few weeks I plan to vlog us visiting Santa, decorating our Christmas tree, making a Christmas cake and of course mince pies! You can also expect to see some christmassy hauls (definitely a Primark haul coming your way soon!) as well as what we’ve bought the kids for Christmas.
If you’d like to keep up with our vlogmas videos then I would absolutely love it if you would subscribe to my YouTube channel here.
Thank you for reading.
