post ideas for blogmas

It has come to that time of year where the entire blogging community is thinking, "Blogmas, or no Blogmas?" Everything is filled with tasty creative foods, beautifully wrapped presents, and miles and miles of Christmas Markets. Blogmas isn't for everyone, but I absolutely love it! I did it a few years ago and even though I told myself I wouldn't do it again, I have decided to kind of do it again this year. I'm not committing to the full 25 days, but I'll be there for most of it. Incase you haven't fully decided whether you are taking part, or you need a few more ideas, I have put together over 60 post ideas for a little helping hand.

We all know how crazy blogmas can be, so here are my top tips to surviving the festive blogging month!

PLAN AHEAD

We might be in mid-Novemerber but it's still not too late to take part in Blogmas. Write a rough idea of the posts you want to do, with an outline and key ideas. Work out what kind of photos you want to take; anything that has a similar theme, take those photos together.

DON'T STICK TO THE RULES

I've already mentioned that I'm not doing the full 25 days, and don't feel like you need to. If you want to take part, but you have other commitment, or you want to have the best posts possible and realistically blogging everyday won't give you the best quality, don't blog everyday. There is no official Blogmas rules. Do Blogmas anyway you can.

THEME OR NO THEME?

Even though Christmas is a theme in itself, you might want to have a Blogmas with just food, or diy posts, or tips, tricks and hacks.

COLLABORATION

Whether it's with another blogger, or a friend who loves Christmas, work together to create the best Blogmas. One can be in charge of photos while the other writes, or you can do the tasks together. This will help lighten the workload, as well as having festive fun with a friend.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE GOOD WEATHER

I guess this is for anyone who is blogging during winter, but if you don't have any fancy lights for photography, when the sun is out, take photos. I also like to plan my photos before hand, (while the weather isn't good), so I know exactly how to lay my props out ready to take the photos once there is suitable weather.

ENJOY CHRISTMAS

I took part in Blogmas a few years ago and it was hard work! Don't loose sight that it's still Christmas. It only comes once a year so enjoy the festive fun and don't spend all your time in front of a computer screen.

I hope this has helped anybody who is thinking of taking part in Blogmas, and inspired those to do so who wasn't. Let me know in the comments below if you're taking part, and your favourite types of festive posts you like to write and/or read. If you use any of these ideas, leave a link below, I'd love to see!
