I absolutely love reading others posts for Blogmas. So why am I not taking part?
I’m not taking part for a number of reasons.
Number 1 being that I’m just not exciting enough. Who would want to read what I have to say everyday in December? I’m sure they would rather be out Christmas shopping or drinking Costa coffee!
Blogmas would take a lot of planning, organising and plugging. I cannot commit to such things. I struggle to find the time to toilet these days! Once the children are in bed is when I sit down to blog. I am normally up until midnight and I don’t even plug that much. That is with uploading 2 to 3 posts a week. I can’t even imagine uploading everyday and the time it would take!
I once tried BEDA (Blog Every Day in August) and by day 18 I had given up. The content of my blog really slipped and I forgot the reason I started blogging in the first place. My blog is like a diary of my family life where we can look back in years to come.
My posts are written as and when I get a brain wave (which is usually as I lay in bed)! I don’t want to be uploading just for the sake of uploading. I’m not saying that is what others do but this is exactly what I would be doing!
Life can get a bit samey as it is. I would rather spend nap times planning activities to do or catching up on housework so I can fully be with my children when they’re awake. I’m struggling to stay afloat as it is!
This is not to say I won’t be reading other peoples posts. I really enjoy reading about/watching peoples lives. Everyone needs that moment away from their own – don’t they?!
Are you taking part in blogmas this year? I’d love to hear why you are/aren’t.
