#socialbloggers 41 // Christmas and Blogging

I love Christmas and reading Christmas themed posts really gets me in the spirit.

My favourite type of Christmas blog posts to read have to be home decor ones. Seeing all the cute Christmas decorations and trees really reminds me of putting my own tree up as a child.Β As I live in a shared house with friends, we don’t put up any Christmas decorations as we all go home for Christmas day, so there doesn’t seem much point!

I also love reading posts about what people have got for Christmas. I’m nosey and any Christmas/birthday hauls are a win for me. For the past two years, I’ve posted my own haul on my blog and I plan to do the same this year. Does anyone else get annoyed if someone says ‘I’m not bragging’ as a disclaimer? I think it’s more of a youtube thing when people do room tours etc – but it really annoys me! It’s you’re blog and you can brag if you want to. Fuck that shit. I’M BRAGGING MY ASS OFF THIS YEAR. and there is nothing you can do to stop me.

I know Christmas can feel a little anti-climatical, but it’s the build up that I enjoy. It’s the music and the happiness that seems to follow people. I like work the most at Christmas because everyone seems to be in a good mood. Things that may otherwise frustrate a person seem to not bother them as much – as though they have some extra Christmas patience!

I have some Christmas posts planned and I can’t wait to start working on them. Some are just ideas so we’ll have to see how they turn out!

    BRING ON THE BRAG! Like you said, it’s our blog so why the hell not?? It’s not rubbing it in peoples faces or anything, but we talk about things we’ve bought all year round, in haul posts and what not so WHY are Christmas gift hauls really any different?? The blogging world confuses me sometimes!

    I think it’s a little different on YouTube, there are just some really nasty commentors so YouTubers tend to say, “I’m not bragging” but you’re right, it’s your blog/channel so brag if you want to! LOL!

    I posted my first Christmas post today! Frankly, we are extremely excited about Christmas this year because it’s a huge celebration with hubby’s family so the atmosphere is completely different.

    I have been feeling Christmasy for the last few weeks. I think I love the build up more the anything else. I put up my first christmas inspired post yesterday which was a gift guide. Going to have my work out producing posts as evenings are when I do them and festivities and parties takes over. It was really nice reading what everyone likes about christmas Lucy x

    I have to work Christmas but the good news is that I get to spend New Years in Sydney πŸ™‚

  • Reply Amber December 6, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    I LOVE reading haul posts, brag away! It annoys me when bloggers say “not bragging but…” like we do we have to disclaim that? We show off what we buy and everything else! I do find sometimes peoples blogs get a bit more boring around Christmas just because everyone posts pretty much the same things :/ i don’t really enjoy reading gift guides anymore cos most just post really generic stuff that I can easily find myself, gift guides of independant or eco-friendly brands are more up my street πŸ™‚
