Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020

2019 was not the year I wanted it to be, but it ended by setting up 2020 for some big changes in my personal life. Again, I don't want to say much until it happens so more on that at a later date.

I've failed when it comes to this blog. I haven't put my all into it this year. You can see that I just stopped posting when it came to Calendar Countdown and didn't post any Christmas content this year. It all needed a shake up but I rushed it and feel I didn't do it justice.

When it came to Calendar Countdown I started emailing companies in July asking if they are releasing a calendar and if I could have access to stock photos, contents and pricing information. I hit this wall where the majority of companies emailed back asking what my following was, how many likes I get and that information would be considered first. Or, I got responses such as "We already have influencers on the payroll and won't be giving out any more freebies". I am always so clear that I don't want the product. What am I going to do with over 200 different advent calendars? Nevermind not having the space for them it's a waste. The other emails I got were companies saying "No Advent Calendar from us this year" then they release 2 or 3 of them and I felt deflated by that. I want to carry on with this segment next year but it's prompted more thought into the changes coming.

As always, I will be welcoming 2020 with a break from this space, however, I will be privatising it and some other social media platforms for a shake-up. Hoping to be back by the end of January but I cannot guarantee as I don't want to rush everything. 

I hope you have a lovely time celebrating the New Year and for 2020 to be the best year for you yet.

As always, thanks for reading...
