What is Blogmas?

Blogmas is a Christmas gift from me to you.

I just wanted to check in and say – Hola! It’s Monday and I’m posting, what is this all about?! Well, let me explain to you that this year, I’m participating in blogmas. I posted Saturday and Sunday as usual so I had to save the announcement for today!

What Is Blogmas?

Blogmas is a Christmas gift from me to you, haha! I know you all love a good read so I thought whilst the dark nights are here, it would give you something to do as opposed to scrolling through Facebook – we’re all guilty of it.

I thought it would be nice to brighten your timeline with a little bit of Benidorm blueness. It’s going to be a blue Christmas.

Blogmas is something I’d never heard of until recently. Similarly to Blogtober, you post a new post every day from the beginning of December right up until Christmas Day. As this is my first year of blogging, I thought it would be great to get involved.

I decided that as I’d taken part in Blogtober and really enjoyed it, I thought it would be a good idea to get involved with Blogmas. I can give myself a kick to post some extra Christmas pieces alongside ones that were already planned anyway!

Will this affect the other posts?

Just the same as Blogtober, the post schedule will stay exactly the same. I’ll still post my Saturday post at 19:00. I have one more Learn Spanish post to go up and the Day in the Life in… will also be posted on the designated Sundays at 19:00GMT.

The only difference is, every day I’ll post a publication at 18:00GMT so you’ll know which ones are regular schedule and which ones are part of Blogmas. I decided to push it to an hour later than blogtober as 17:00 was a little early and some of you missed them!

Let’s get the fire on, turn on some Christmas music and get into the festive spirit as you countdown to Christmas with me. Think of me as your little Benidorm advent Calendar.

I’m a Blogger – What can I write about in Blogmas?

Well, I’ll be writing about different travel locations during Blogmas, what it’s like in my local city, Benidorm, during December, Christmas Shopping, Christmas Gift ideas, the weather here in December and much, much more.

If you’re stuck for ideas for Blogmas, follow along with my blog and you might get some ideas of what you can do for your own blog.

I think a lot of us forget to explore our own cities, so I love that I’m able to inspire some of you to open your eyes to what’s around you and that you can blog without being in a huge, “blogging” city. You don’t need to go far to write a blog post. Sometimes, the information people are searching for, you have the answers on your doorstep. Get it out there. Get it published.

Blogmas is a perfect time to get some blog posts up and step out of your comfort zone.

I’m excited to bring Blogmas to you!

Hasta luego,

What is Blogtober?

I’m excited to bring Blogtober to you!

SURPRISE, I’ve decided to do blogtober this year. I’m still in my first year of blogging so I thought it would be nice to get involved. I have so many ideas of things to do and questions to answer about Halloween, Autumn and Fiestas in Benidorm during October/November time so I thought it would be great to add them into blogtober.

Blogtober? What’s that!?

For anybody that doesn’t know, blogtober is a month of blogging. Yep, that means every day a brand new post.

It’s a good excuse for me to clear out some of these blog post drafts sitting collecting dust, but it also means I can drag Alex along to some Halloween themed events that go on around Benidorm and get my baking head on and make some Halloween treats.

I’ll also cover the weather in Benidorm during October, what to pack, Autumn essentials and an Autumn/Winter clothing haul along with some other lifestyle posts like where we’ve got our pumpkins from and how we carved them, my Halloween costume and some education posts like what exactly is día de muertos. It’s going to be exciting, I hope.

Will this affect the other posts?

No, not at all!

The post schedule will stay exactly the same. I’ll still post my Learn Spanish posts on a Tuesday at 19:00GMT, my regular Saturday post at 19:00GMT and the Day in the Life in… will also be posted (with a bonus one) on the designated Sundays at 19:00GMT.

The only difference is, every day I’ll post a publication at 17:00GMT so you’ll know which ones are regular schedule and which ones are part of Blogtober.

As the nights start drawing in and the fluffy socks make an appearance, you’ll have a little piece of Benidorm to have a read of each day.

I’m excited to bring Blogtober to you!

Hasta luego,
