Next Blogmas.....


Hey Whisperers,

Blogmas is coming to an end, i can't believe there's only 1 week left, and honestly all though I’ve loved it I’ve also hated it. Blogmas is so stressful to do, the constant writing, photo shoots, editing, posting, promoting it becomes a lot. Don’t get me wrong it’s worth it, but it’s stressful. So today i thought I'd share a few things that I'm going to do differently when it comes to blogmas next year, if i do Blogmas that is. So i hope you enjoy!!

Next Blogmas...


Plan way ahead of time

This year I thought I’d planned ahead, I definitely hadn’t. Next year, I want to start writing as soon as possible. I’m hoping to start writing posts in the summer, not only because i will be stocked up on posts but because I will actually have decent lighting to take photos (well I say that but you never know what the British weather will be like).

Putting more time into posts

Firstly I’m not saying I haven’t put time into my posts, believe me I have but next year I want everything to be my own. This year I’ve had to use a lot of royalty free images for my headers but next year I want to be able to take those photos myself. I want to be able to sit back and look at my blog as mine, instead of my words with other peoples pictures you know?

Do different posts

I feel like my blogmas posts this year have been pretty generic and boring. They’ve been the same old Christmas posts and although I’ve loved writing them, it’s got to suck seeing 100+ of the same posts on your twitter timeline. I want to write posts that are different, things that stand out. I want my blog to be individual instead of just “another blogmas blogger” and i know it's going to be hard coming up with ideas but nothing about blogging is easy and it will definitely be worth it in the end.

Giveaways

I’m doing a Christmas giveaway this year (here)and I’ve loved getting stuff to put in it, but honestly I didn’t want to post it at all. I feel like I see these amazing giveaways all over twitter this time of year and mine is honestly just a bit shitty. I wish I could afford the big prizes to give away like other bloggers but I can’t. So next year I want to collect things and do a few giveaways over the Christmas period instead of just one. I’m going to start collecting Boxing Day so next years give away will be a lot bigger and better than this years one.

Collaborations

I know that sponsorship's are a big taboo to some bloggers, but I do want to do some more sponsored posts next blogmas. I want to be able to actually have some products in my hands and review them for you and I know some people will be thinking just go and buy them, but not everyone can. I want to be able to talk about them without just shoving them in a post and saying what I think “could” be good about them. I know this is a big goal as my blog is still a smaller blog but it's one of those things that i really want to work on over the next year and who knows, it could happen!


I've loved doing blogmas this year and i hope you've enjoyed reading my posts. Looking back i do wish that i had done a few things differently and hopefully next year I'll look back at this post and be able to say that i did each thing on the list. I hope you've enjoyed today's post!

Happy Blogmas Day 17

Thanks for Reading,
Love
Soph
