This is not a #MusicAdvent post. It’s also not a #Holidailies post. Oh, and it’s not a #DecemberReflections post either.
This is an admin post warning you about what’s going on with the Bathtub Mermaid this December.
Because I like to challenge myself (or because I’m insane, possibly both) I’m doing a triple cocktail of Holiday Blog/Twitter/Instagram projects, and may (or may not) be combining them.
(Actually, I may be doing a fourth project at the same time, but that will only be 12 days, and not 25 or 31)
So, here’s the lowdown on what to expect.
Today (1 December 2016) is the first day of MusicAdvent, in which people share a song every day from now til Christmas. This year, the challenge is to chain the songs together, so that each song somehow connects to the previous one. I came this|close to using “The Alphabet Song” or “Alligators All Around” because that way the instant connection would be that they’d be in alphabetical order, but that would be cheating. So, you’ll have to go follow me on twitter (see my link in the sidebar) to find out what song I start with.
Today (1 December 2016) is also the first day of Holidailies, which I’ve been participating in for over a decade now. If you visited this space, or listened to my podcast, in October, you know I also participated in the darker version of that project, #HorrorDailies. But this month is for the original.
And finally, today (1 December 2016) is the first day of December Reflections which I’ll be doing mostly on Instagram (link in sidebar).
Oh, and that fourth project? It will be a 12-day podcast thing, like a mini-version of Dog Days of Podcasting, and you’ll be able to follow that at BathtubMermaid.com when it begins.
Now, if this all sounds a bit ambitious, please remember that I reserve the right to skip days when necessary. (12/21, for example, I’ll be on a plane).
I hope you’ll take the ride with me this month. Some blog entries may incorporate the music or photo from that day; some may not. Let’s see what happens.
Oh, who am I kidding. This is totally a holidailies post.
