Month in review: December 2020

Written by and published on .

These are the 31 days and 30 articles that made EMULSIVE in December 2020. There’s no fancy countdown here, just my usual recap for those of you who missed the goings-on. You’ll find a recap of all the articles published, starting with the most popular 10 articles of the month in order of publication (as decided by you).

If you read the November 2020 update, I’m still very much in catch-up mode but definitely getting there. As ever, if you’ve got something to share, please drop me a line.


Enjoy!
