Let’s be honest, this year hasn’t been great! Viruses, diseases, lockdowns, shock horror…… ZOOM QUIZZES – it certainly has been intense.
But if there is one thing we can always rely on, it is the desire to dress up at Halloween (and consume our body weight in chocolate and sweet treats!) And 2020 is most definitely no exception!
According to data from Google, looking at the current search trends in America, it looks like a real mixed bag out there…..maybe in more ways than one, but this isn’t a political post!

Google has also created an interactive Frightgeist map, showing the trends in all the different cities in America. Quite fun to look at and interesting to see how the trends differ from state to state, city to city.
Dipping in and out of all the different aspects of digital marketing is what I do best – learning new techniques whilst effectively using older strategies, platforms and methods. Although I am getting older and find social media less and less appealing in my personal life, I do believe it has a huge part to play for businesses, so you will find me active on most platforms! 😉
Away from work, I will be found doing one of the following – especially in the post lockdown days – reading, cooking or watching sports on TV in lieu of being at my spiritual home in person, Old Trafford (although my picture is there somewhere). I can be found most evenings rewatching The Walking Dead with my husband and cats, and can also be found embarrassing my teenage son too.
