How To Win At Blogmas In 2017! | Updated Version

Are YouA Blogger_(10)

When you think Christmas, what do you think? Festive movies? Presents under the tree? Hot chocolate in front of the fire?

If you are a blogger, however, there is only one thing that will be on your mind throughout the entirety of the season…

BLOGMAS!

Oh what a wonderful time of year it is for bloggers. From the first mention of Christmas, we will be in complete panic mode, initially stressing over whether or not to actually join in.

Then, when we have FINALLY decided to do so (its hard to say no), you can be sure that at some point we will be sitting in our rooms frantically writing down ideas to fill the month. I’m pretty sure, if you listen carefully right now, you will hear a blogger SCREAM, either from stress, or due to a eurika moment.

It’s hard to tell the difference, and if I’m honest, it’s probably me, but please don’t despair, because I am here to help!

Here are 4 ways you can survive Blogmas this year!

Get Festive A Lot Earlier Than Usual

Let’s be honest, I know Blogmas is in December, but if you want to make the most of it, the best time to start preparing is in November, maybe even earlier than that.

This is mainly a tip for me, because I almost forgot this year.

Make It Picture Perfect

To stay on top of your Blogmas game, you need to take photos on the daily (which I haven’t done so much of), or at the very least, make some form of graphic (which I have done).

These images will make your post look so much better, add that extra little charm, as well as split up what you have written, making it more appealing.

Overload Your Notebook With Ideas

Before going into it, I would ensure that you have some ideas already fresh in your mind, and written down, so that when you come to write a post, you have something to go on, as opposed to staring blankly at a screen for an hour.

I am sure some of you bloggers reading know what I am talking about and have experienced this, because I definitely have.

It is not fun!

Have Fun With It!

When you are a blogger, you find yourself in what can only be described as a festive conundrum, to do Blogmas, or to not do it. If you decide yes (which a lot of you have done), it takes a lot of work. Probably 10x more than usual.

For some, it might end up being the most fun you have ever had blogging, but for others, it may make Christmas feel like the complete opposite. Don’t feel forced intoΒ  doing it.

If you know it’s not for you, don’t do it. There is no point forcing the fun. because people will be able to tell.

Personally, I love it, and I am sure you will too!


GOOD LUCK to all those doing Blogmas this year and Happy Blogging!

    A few days ago, I got really upset with myself because I wasn’t doing Blogmas. However, I then realised exactly what you’ve said: this year, it wasn’t for me. IT might be next year but sometimes, things just don’t work at a particular time and THAT IS OKAY. Good luck this year; you’ll smash it! xx
