Looking ahead to 2020
Updated: Jan 7
We are almost back in the Twenties. 2019 was an interesting year for me and Millennial Gent. In the early summer I took redundancy from the magazine I was working for and went freelance.
That should have made this blog one of my primary purposes on a day-to-day basis. But, as anyone who has struck out alone will tell you, the early going was pretty hectic.
However, I have pretty much got the ship righted now and am heading full steam into 2020. This means there are some exciting new things to come here in the next 12 months.
You may notice the homepage has had a slight revamp - apologies to anyone who visited over the Christmas period when I accidentally put the 'work in progress' version live!
So what is coming in the year ahead?
I will be doubling down to bring you more content on menswear, Short Man Style, skincare, travel, culture, food & drink and coffee.
There will be more stuff than ever before, with film and TV tips and reviews, restaurant and bar recommendations, recipes (expect to see plenty of Suffering Carniore stuff), coffee shops, coffee brands and a real dive down into the world of menswear and the challenges of dressing well as a short man. All of this, plus a load more, will also be available on my Instagram and Facebook pages.
On top of that, there are a few new things on the horizon.
Newsletters - very soon my Edit newsletters will be heading out to subscribers, carrying the latest posts and exclusive content on Travel, Culture, Style and Fodd & Drink. Sign up at the bottom of the page.
Life Skills - from how to open a Champagne bottle or whether to hold a door open (yes, always, for anyone), this will help navigate the increasingly tricky world of modern etiquette.
Interviews - I have been lucky enough to meet some pretty amazing people both through work and through this blog, so I'll bring you one-on-one chats with them, so they can share their insights and brilliance with you. Meet Beefeater Master Distller Desmond Payne, for example.
52 New - Try something new every week? Why not. I'm open to suggestions for this one. So far they have ranged from CBD oil and yoga to reading a daily paper and skydiving. So we shall see.
