I was browsing through my twitter feed and noticed that lots of people were mentioning Blogmas so I thought I would write my first post in December around Blogmas and the Christmas countdown.
For those of you who don’t know what blogmas is, and I never knew myself until a few days ago. Blogmas is when a blogger writes daily blog posts throughout December up until the 25th. Some bloggers, decide to write for 12 days of Christmas and others blog for the full 31 days. Vloggers, also take part in “Vlogmas” where they post their videos for the first 25 days until Christmas.
Today is the 1st of December, the start of Blogmas and the Christmas countdown and I’m about to open my advent calendar. I thought I’d start my Blogmas post first because this is my first ever Blogmas write up and this blog has been going since June this Year.
Reflecting on 2016!
I purchased the domain for this blog, back in December 2013 and decided to start the blog at the beginning of 2014. After writing a few posts, I became extremely busy with other freelance work. Unfortunately, I had so much work that I never had enough time off. I was working seven day weeks 8 am until 10 pm. My workload consisted of 60 -70 articles per month, looking after clients social media accounts and WordPress sites, two days PR for a client, half a day’s marketing and two days of PPC.
Finally, after suffering from exhaustion for most of 2015, I’m slowly getting myself back on my feet, and I started up Digital Classic again in June this year. I also changed hosts from 123 reg to e-host because their servers were running too slow.
I can’t believe that its December already.Besides being my first ever Blogmas and the Christmas countdown, this month also marks the six month anniversary of Digital Classic. I just hope that readers can continue to enjoy the blog and that posts are of value to everyone who reads them or future readers. I have lots of plans for this blog as it grows, which I will reveal in my New Year blog post.
Throughout this month, I will be posting Christmas based posts which I hope you will all enjoy. Please feel free to comment on the posts and let me know if there is something that you would like me to write about or review.
I’m off to open the first door on my Malteser calendar, which my Dad brought for me. My Dad brought the whole family advent calendars, which was very thoughtful of him. He even got my sister and I our favourite advent calendars.
