I started a new job this week, I won’t go into too much detail about it because I like to keep that part of my life separate, but I’m excited by the prospect of a new challenge. One big thing that I now have is greater flexibility in terms of my work hours. Basically I’m going to be working full time hours over 4 days. This will give me something I have always wanted…..a day off that’s just me and Effy. My plan is to vlog these days and share via my youtube channel every week. I will share more when I post the first video, will likely be a few weeks after the Easter holidays. I watch a lot of vlogs, some brilliant ones some absolutely terrible ones. One thing I can guarantee is that I will avoid the really boring, everyday stuff like a trip round Tesco or a car journey….I hate watching that in vlogs and usually skip through it. I want my vlogs to be about the little adventures me and Effy go on, when it’s just us two. It will also be a way for my OH to see what we get up to, because she thinks I’ll just sit and play Fifa all day. Carlisle and the Lake District are amazing places to live and I want to get out and explore as much as possible. If there is anyone with any suggestions about places to visit, let me know. Obviously it needs to be in reason and achievable within 1 day. Any vlogging tips also welcome??
Over the next 12 months I’m also hoping to dedicate more time to the blog generally and other ideas I’ve got. I look at some bloggers and they churn out posts quicker than the Daily Mail churns out hate. It baffles me, but fair play to them. I will never be one of them bloggers, I’ll carry on chucking out posts whenever I feel like it or someone pays me. However I’m amazed what I have achieved in my half arsed year of blogging. With a greater focus and the addition of the vlog, I’m excited about the next 12 months.
