Blogmas Update

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

The blogmas challenge is nearly completed! My goal was to post everyday from December 1st up to December 25th and while I still have a couple more days before this challenge is finished, I wanted to take some time to reflect on my posts up to this point.

So this post should be post #23 (because today is the 23rd of December), but actually it is post #13. I fell off my blogmas wagon a couple of days here and there due to a severe illness my son was suffering from. I tried to post sporadically during his sickness, but it became too much at the time when I needed to focus all my attention on him.

While I didn’t accomplish posting consecutively for 25 days straight, I did learn a tremendous amount about myself as a writer and about other people in ny life. I completed my first collaboration piece where I featured three friends and their small businesses. I also wrote about the heart breaking experience of losing my grandmother right after Thanksgiving. I found things out about myself through this journey and feel that my blogmas series showed me what I’m capable of as a writer.

Next year, hopefully I am able to plan ahead better and can dedicate more time to each post. I plan to attempt blogmas again and I look forward to comparing the positive changes I see from 2018 to 2019.

I hope you have enjoyed my blogmas series! Still have two more to post.

What topics should I consider covering next time? Did you have a favorite post that I published during blogmas? I look forward to hearing from you in the comments!

Always,
