Hello, festive friends and dear regular readers. As the tinsel gets tangled and the fairy lights flicker, a big question jingles in the minds of bloggers: “To blog or not to blog during the holiday season?” Well, strap on your Santa hats and grab a mince pie, because we're about to dive into a Christmas blogging debate!
The Great Holiday Blogging Or Not Blogging Bonanza
Scheduling Content: Think of this as your blogging advent calendar. Behind each door, a pre-written post, ready to surprise your readers! Platforms like WordPress are your little helpers, letting you queue up posts faster than Santa sliding down the chimney. Picture this: You're sipping mulled wine, and poof! your “10 Best Eggnog Recipes” post goes live. Magic!
Automating Your Cheer: MissingLettr is like having your own team of digital elves. Set it up, and watch as it spreads your holiday cheer across social media. It's like sending out a fleet of reindeer, but for your blog posts!
Inclusivity: The Gift That Keeps on Giving
Recognising Diversity: Not everyone's decking the halls! Some might just be chilling with Netflix. So, why not write a post about “5 Great Movies for When You're Not Feeling Festive”? It's like giving a digital hug to all your readers, no matter what they're celebrating.
Global Audience, Global Cheer: It's a big world out there, full of different celebrations. Cater to everyone! A post like “Holidays Around the World: From Diwali to Hanukkah” can be a hit. It's like taking your readers on a sleigh ride around the globe!
The Business Side of the North Pole
End-of-Year Purchases: Some folks are looking to splash some cash before the year ends (hello, tax benefits!). If you're in the tech industry, how about a “Top Tech Buys to Wrap Up Your Year”? It's like being Santa for the tech-savvy!
Holiday Offers and Promotions: Running a fitness blog? Launch a “New Year, New You” fitness challenge with a cheeky holiday discount. It's like gifting fitness wrapped in a bow!
Engaging with Your Elves… I Mean, Audience
Holiday Downtime = Prime Blog Time: People have time off, and what better way to spend it than reading your blog? Host a “Festive Photo Contest” or a “Best Holiday Recipe Exchange” on your blog. Have a virtual holiday party!
