Why I Haven’t Been Posting For Blogmas

Hey guys. So more of an honest post for you today. The last post I had for Blogmas was day 11…which has been very disappointing for me. As I’ve said before, last year I posted every single day and although it was hard, I made it happen. I knew this year would be even more of a challenge since I’ve been working full time and life has just become much more complicated. I scheduled out posts as much as a could but eventually it caught up with me. Long story short, it probably wasn’t smart of me to try and commit to something this extensive knowing my work has become my life.

I think something that naturally comes with Blogmas is the rushed posts. Except for the people that somehow plan out posts weeks in advance, mine tend to be a bit shorter so I can keep up with posting everyday. I’ve mentioned this before and touch upon it in one of my videos but this year I really wanted to focus on making quality content that I would truly want to read compared to making mediocre content more often. With Blogmas, I felt my content wasn’t at the place I wanted it to be and it wasn’t up to my own standards. I want to make things I’m proud of and when it came to Blogmas, that just wasn’t the case. I’ve also been very inactive on Instagram compared to my usual time spent on there. This has really bummed me out because I’ve come to love the creativity and community that is Instagram.

However, I still of course have more Christmasy things to share with you guys. I still have plenty of ideas of posts I want to make and will be proud of. Although it won’t come every single day, I’m looking forward to bringing the Christmas vibes back to this blog. Another side note, I feel a sickness coming on and I’m trying to avoid that as much as possible. So please, be patient and know I’m doing as much as I possibly can. I know this post was brief but I just wanted to touch base with you guys and let you know I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth. Hope you are all doing well and are gearing up for Christmas! Talk to you soon xx

  1. I felt the same in regards to Blogmas!! I just knew with work and all the things that happen and catch up to you during the end of the year it would be impossible for me to keep churning out a blog a day, regardless of how many I scheduled in advance! x

    1. You definitely know where I’m coming from. Especially with my job, it just wasn’t possible this year to post everyday. At least I know now for next year what I can and can’t accomplish given the circumstances

    1. Aw thank you so so much love! I think I put so much pressure on myself more than anyone else to accomplish all that I want to. Everyone has been so sweet about it though and I appreciate all the support! And omg I’ve been taking vitamin C tablets almost everyday! LOL

  2. It sounds like a lot of bloggers popping up on my feed have had similar thoughts in trying to choose between quality or quantity for blogmas. You’re definitely not alone! I’m the same way I can never make myself write for the sake of writing although I’ve tried many times. With that said I really appreciate reading all your blog posts because it’s clear you put your heart into it and that blogging means a lot to you! ❤️ also hope you feel better soon!

    1. It’s really comforting to read comments like this, thank you so much! I definitely want all my posts to have quality and meaning to them. So posting everyday and keeping that quality is difficult. I definitely bit off more than I could chew this year, but lesson learned!

  3. No pressure! It’s fun to see people post daily in December for blogmas, but I get that some of the content can become lackluster due to rushing or running out of ideas. Whatever you post, whenever, we’ll be excited to see (:

  4. I am so proud of you for realizing how much Blogmas was taking out of you and for stepping back. I think it takes a strong person to do that. You should be proud of how far you did get into Blogmas and the posts you have written. I am excited for all the posts to come. Merry Christmas Eve Eve! xx

    1. Aw thank you so much for your kindness. I definitely want next year to go differently but it’s been nice to relax and not stress out or feel guilty about not getting a blog post up. For example I’ve really been wanting to make another video and I finally got to do that!
