Blogmas: What is it and why are we doing it?

Blogmas: What is it and why are we doing it?

“We’re doing Blogmas!” I turned to Josh and said one evening after dinner.

“What the hell does that mean?”

“It means we post a blog post every day of December, like Blogtober”

“What’s Blogtober?”

“Just….. it doesn’t matter. We’re doing Blogmas”


What actually is Blogmas?

You may have the same questions Josh did. Well, like I told Josh, you just post every day up December.

Now, since first drafting this post I found out that don’t even understand what Blogmas is. Some are saying it’s posting every day in December up until Christmas Eve. Which is fine by me!

I also found out every post should be Christmas related. Now, I love Christmas. I get the decorations up in November and have done all my Christmas shopping before the first weekend in December. But ain’t nobody got time fo’ writing 24 Christmas related posts. So I’m doing my own thaaang of just writing whatever I feel like.

What’s the point? 

I like a challenge, which this certainly will be. Writing a blog is actually a lot harder than it looks, and creating content is one of the hardest aspects.

I’m hoping to learn a lot along the way, how it will affect the way we plan posts and push us into creating more content each month.

So… here’s to a month of posting! Wish us luck.

    Ooh good luck with Blogmas – I totally didn’t realise everything was supposed to be Christmas related, so thanks for letting me know. That said, I’m with you on doing it your own way…otherwise you’d have to have been doing Christmas related stuff for aaaaages and much as I love Christmas, that seems like overkill.

    I’m half tempted to do blogmas myself, mainly to clear a pretty epic backlog before I go on holiday. That counts, right?
