I thought for today I’ll share a few thoughts about Blogmas and Christmas period in general.
I really love that so many people are doing Blogmas! So creators that are putting the time into writing Christmas related content, you totally rock. However, I don’t think writing Blogmas sparks as much joy for me as I thought it will.
One of the reasons could be that I’m preparing new content that I want to post after Christmas and have everything set for a small blog redesign. Yay! It’s not the new year new me kind of thing, but I thought new year is good timing for this.
Moreover, I was expecting that I will be running around the apartment and throwing glitter everywhere, baking cookies and pies every day while always being in an ecstatic mood because it’s Christmas and I freaking love Christmas. Instead, I’m experiencing a nosedive in productivity, positivity and mental health. Not very Christmasy vibes right there.
I’m working on staying positive and grateful and that’s what I want my blog to be as well. I just feel like lately I need to put the extra work to feel like myself.
In a nutshell:
Eventually I wanted to post 25 days of Christmas content, but I might cut Blogmas a little bit shorter as well as take a small break from WordPress and social media. That way, I’ll be able to:
a) redesign my blog faster
b) release new content sooner
c) submit my econometrics assignments
d) not force myself to feel Christmasy and just enjoy my time watching Friends and baking
e) rest, reflect on last year and get my mental health in check
I still have content to post. Like this amazing cake I made today, Christmas lights in my city and a package from home that is supposed to soon arrive. I’m really hoping to do that soon!
I just wanted to share how I’ve been feeling lately in case someone is struggling to keep up with the Christmas mood expectations they set for themselves.
How has Blogmas been for you? And how are you feeling this Christmas season?
I really hope you’re eating a lot of Christmas sweets (sure I am) and enjoying your time.
Don’t forget to be kind to each other and love yourself! ♥️
