Okay, before we get started, grab a cup of coffee (or tea if you want) and let’s just chat for a few minutes.
Wow, so we are officially half way through blogmas! Can y’all believe it? I seriously cannot believe how quickly it is happening, and how quickly it is going to end! How bad is it that I’m already thinking about the end? I’m honestly so happy with how this month is going, and how much networking / connecting with other bloggers! I’m currently watching the Polar express, I have a cup of Hot chocolate and my Christmas tree is on. I truly feel the Christmas spirit right now. Did y’all ever wonder why the Polar Express was so good? Because of me too. Honestly, I barely understand the Polar Express (and that maybe because I’ve never really sat and watched it).
So what’s to come? So I’ve been thinking about two major things. Well, I think they are pretty major, so I really would like y’all’s input or opinions.
- I want to start an email / newsletter list. Recently another blogger, Alexa from Life, Shuffled, started one and her first one went out this past Saturday. While that defiantly is encouraging, the idea to do that, I’ve been thinking about this for a while, seeing as it is a great way to connect with readers, and also a great way to get your content out there. I’m not sure exactly what I would do with that, there is a wide mix of different types of emails you can get. There are the recent post emails, the motivational email, the recap email, etc. Honestly, this list could go on and on. So that’s defiantly something I’m going to be looking into, thinking about, and also really looking for some guidance on! (So if you have any advice/tips, please let me know!)
- Youtube. So if y’all say my Morning Routine then you’ll know I did that completely in a video, that I embedded into my post. I’ve been told before that I should think about doing youtube, and truth be told at one time I actually uploaded videos to youtube. That’s now been over two years, and I honestly didn’t put much into it when I did. I go back and forth between whether I want to partake in that. And this past week I did go on a min-rant about that, mostly because it is something I would want to take super serious, and I just don’t know if I would have the time for that. Mostly because I don’t want to even neglect my blog. As many of you know, other than this month, back in August, I start putting up new post 3 times a week and also I started really promoting myself on social media. So youtube, making videos, I just don’t know how I would manage that AND working my full-time job.
So those are a few things that I’ve been thinking about lately. I will say that both of these things wouldn’t start until the new year, mostly because with blogmas, and still having 13 days worth of content still left to put out, I need to really focus on that. I would love to hear about y’all advice / tips / heck even opinions are okay!
Now before we go, I want to talk about what happened this weekend. So on Saturday I posted my Night Time Routine, and then on Sunday I post my Morning Routine. So that was by accident. So Saturday I wrote my night time routine and then published it, but I had so forgotten that I had written my morning routine. Then on Saturday night, I ended up hanging out with a friend and I didn’t realize till super incredibly late that I didn’t have anything written. BUT when I got on to check it out, I had that written. Normally I would have never published that so close to having published my night time routine. But everything was already done that I figured I might as well. So I really hope y’all didn’t find that too weird.
I really hope y’all are all enjoying Blogmas this far, and if you have something you want to read about, leave a comment down below!
Hope y’all are ready for the next 13 days worth of fun/Christmas related post!
Love, Megan Anne
