Why I Am Not Participating In Blogmas This Year

Hi Y’all! It is finally December, one of my favorite months of the year. December brings Christmas, family, friends, and a New Year around the corner.

December is such a busy month for my family. We literally prepare for the Christmas festivities all month long. I am sure many people do the same.
Which is why I find myself just taking a back seat on Blogmas. So many bloggers are taking part in Blogmas, which is awesome, I have enjoyed the first couple of days of Blogmas 2017 so far as a reader.

As for me and my blog though, with everything going on this month, I just can’t commit to a blog post every day until Christmas.  Blogtober was really difficult to keep up with for me, so I decided not to put so much pressure on myself for this one.

What will I be doing instead of writing Blogmas posts?

  • Writing Christmas cards
  • Baking yummy treats
  • Freelance writing
  • Attending my kids’ Christmas performances
  • Christmas gift shopping
  • Taking Christmas photos for my Instagram
  • Trying new recipes from Pinterest
  • Decorating for Christmas
  • Getting ready for Christmas dinner
  • Spending time with my family and friends

And much, much more, I am sure..

Now don’t be sad, I will still be posting to my blog about twice a week as always. And more than likely my blog posts will be Christmas themed because I love the holidays so much.

So..I want to know.

Are you participating in Blogmas this year?

Here are some bloggers that are participating in Blogmas that I have enjoyed so far. Go take a look for yourself, I know you will enjoy.

Carly – Pretty Style of Living

Chloe Lauren – Diary of a Lonely Girl

Until next time friends, take care.

  1. I’m just getting my momentum for the consistent blogging (my husband’s broken knee was a huge priority for the recent months), so the activities like Blogmas are still a far cry for me. Yet, I enjoy reading the marathons like this one. Thanks for sharing.

    And yeah, Christmas definitely deserves your full commitment, not like blogger, but like a wife, a mom, and a happy person!

    1. I am enjoying just reading them too. There are so many awesome bloggers doing Blogmas this year. And I agree, if Blogmas makes you happy go for it, but if not, just sit back and enjoy the holidays! I hope your husband recovers soon or is doing better. 💜

  2. I am participating this year, or at least attempting too, it’s only been 3 days. Will see how it goes. I’m banking on doing a handful of quick short blogmas posts, so hopefully that will help me be successful!

  3. Thank you so much for linking my blog, it’s really kind of you. I’m glad you’re enjoying my posts.
    Blogmas can be stressful and can hold a lot of pressure, but for me, it’s a good way to keep my motivated. Hope you’re having a lovely day!

  4. I’m not participating in Blogmas either as I just do not have the time to plan and post each day. We’re in our busy season at work, so I’ve been working longer hours. Plus, trying to keep up with my shows as well as reading others blog posts… I just don’t have the time for everything. However, I’ve still got some Christmas posts planned for the month.

  5. I’m not hosting a Blogmas either because of a few things that have a slightly higher priority at the moment and definitely spending some time with family is on top of the list. Plus, I enjoy blogmas more as a reader ❤
