The Truth About Blogmas, Is It As Hard As It Seems? - Blogmas Day 17

Monday, December 17, 2018

Since we're well past the halfway point of blogmas now, I thought I'd use this blog post to do a bit of an overview and share my thoughts on blogmas, as well as giving you an insight into what it's truly like daily blogging in the run up to Christmas. It's definitely been difficult at times but also one of my favourite experiences, so keep reading to hear all of my thoughts!

Is it difficult?
If I'm completely honest, blogmas has been incredibly difficult so far! To go from a huge blogging break to then posting 3 times a week was a huge jump, so to then take that up to posting every day has really been a challenge. It's incredibly difficult to make sure that posts are written, photographs are taken (in the incredibly limited daylight) and I've promoted posts on social media, whilst also balancing university, work, social life and everything else going on. It's also been difficult thinking of enough things to write about that you guys would enjoy, but obviously all of this has been manageable considering how much I've enjoyed it.

How do you have time for it?
It's not been too bad making time for blogmas, since it's been the final few weeks of uni and so the workload has been slightly less intense, although it's still been difficult making time for everything. The way that I've managed to make time for blogmas is to plan ahead, making sure that I've had a few posts done ahead of time, as well as allocating a couple of mornings a week to get a few photos done. This has definitely helped make time for blogmas, and when I've had an unexpectedly busy day there's already something prepared for me to upload.

Will you keep up daily blogging after Christmas?
Honestly, I'd love to daily blog again in the future, but I don't think I could sustain it forever. It's definitely been hard work and draining blogging on a daily basis, and so I need a well-earned break once blogmas is over, plus I'd be afraid of running out of post ideas! I'll definitely be going back to 3 posts a week after Christmas, and perhaps adding the occasional extra one here and there, plus I'd love to do more daily blogging perhaps at Easter or in the summer, I guess you'll just have to stay tuned!

Has blogmas interfered with my actual festivities?
In all honesty, blogmas hasn't interfered with my festivities in the slightest, in fact it's probably enhanced it! There are quite a few festive things that I did for blogmas, such as the baking, which I perhaps wouldn't have done otherwise, so I'd say that blogmas has definitely made me embrace the festive spirit even more than normal!

Am I enjoying it?
All in all, I've really loved doing blogmas so far! I never thought I'd be able to achieve something like this and so I'm incredibly proud of myself, plus it's been a very enjoyable experience! It's really helped to rekindle my love of blogging, alongside getting in the Christmas spirit, and it's something that I'd definitely want to do again next year!

I hope that this answers some of your burning questions about blogmas, and if there's anything else you'd like to know then make sure you let me know in the comments! Thank you very much for reading this blog post, and I'll see you tomorrow for another blogmas post, so goodbye for now!

  1. You are doing amazing with Blogams and I'm glad to hear you're enjoying it! I did it for the last two years and it's one of the most difficult blogging things I've done haha! Totally needed a break from it this year. No idea how daily bloggers do it!xx

  2. It's amazing that you've kept it up so far! I bet it was a huge difference to go from posting from 3 times a week to daily. Currently, I've been blogging daily since I started (don't as me how I've managed to keep it going because I have no idea ��). It's quite a lot of fun, but like you said it is challenging! X
