40 Blogmas Ideas for This Holiday Season

10

It’s that time of year again! Most would say it’s the most wonderful time of the year… Personally, I love the holiday season (minus the snow.) making people smile, festive recipes to test on the family and learning how to deal with new holiday stress.

I’ve never participated in Blogmas before, and I thought I would give it a try this year and do my own 12 days of Blogmas. I can’t really commit to 25 or 31 days of December at the moment, but I know I can at least do 12 of them and spread them out throughout the month of December!

If you don’t know what Blogmas is, it is a blogging challenge which consists in publishing a blog post either 12, 25 or all of the month of December. As its name suggests, Blogmas is the conjunction of the words ‘blog’ and ‘Christmas’ and anyone who has a blog can take part in the activity. This can give you consistent content, and help with daily views and publishing; not to mention to help you become a better writer than you already are. It’s good to have challanges in life, and a simple one like this can make the whole world of difference in your online presence.

Remember to have fun with this! It’s not meant to be stressful and if you find yourself not being able to keep up, you can always change the way you go about it like I am, and only committing to 12 days vs more than I know I can handle. Afterall, it’s YOUR blog and you can do what you want!

So on that note, I’ve decided to make a list of 40 Blogmas ideas that you may want to write about this holiday season. I’ve done a bit of research, and have curated this list based on what I personally would write about. 12 of these listed will be featured on my blog this season, you’ll just have to wait and see which ones! (These are in no particular order, I just wrote down whatever came to mind at the time.)

‘There is an area of the mind that could be called unsane, beyond sanity, and yet not insane. Think of a circle with a fine split in it. At one end there’s insanity. You go around the circle to sanity, and on the other end of the circle, close to insanity, but not insanity, is unsanity.’

Well there it is guys. That’s where I got my name from. Have any of you ever heard of the acid trip band called Hallucinogen? Well, now you have and you’re welcome.

They are rad and I remember listening to this when I was in high school just sitting there thinking, “Wow, who ever wrote this must have been on some pretty rad drugs that I’ll never take so I have to live vicariously through them for the time being.” And so I did. This is where my name came from and I don’t think there is an actual video for the song but just listen to what I have below. Just pretend you are on acid – or if you are, even better for you because this beat is very different and amazing. They only have a few songs from what I can tell but man did the lyrics make sense to me.

It’s a Friday night and I’m sitting here just browsing the internet because people think they need to tell me how to live my life recently and I’m just getting plain sick of it. I’m sorry, I need to take my lynch when? Oh okay, so I’m not even allowed to pick it any more? I have to go when other people go because you said so? Okay, yeah that’s cool. Stop the micro-managing and we’ll all be a bit happier I think. I know it doesn’t come from you but if you’re not the one with the actual problem with me then leave it alone. I will not be told to do something I’m uncomfortable with and I most certainly will not do it with you yelling at me telling me I have to. That’s not how I work. Sorry.

That there are doors that they are afraid to go in
And they don’t want us to go in there either
Because if we go in there we might learn something
That they don’t know
And that makes us a little out of their control

I’ve been reading a lot lately. A lot of books that I haven’t read before and a lot of books that I have actually read before. Divining the Future is an amazing book that I came across in the New Age section of Barnes and Nobles a few years ago and it’s amazing and talks all about spirituality. Not that I really am into that stuff, but I think a lot of the quotes and things in there might be useful for helping me de-stress from this job and other things in my life like my money situation I’m currently in. I need something to help me with that because right now, nothing else is helping and I don’t know what to do. So I’m reading this book to see how to not be so stressed with every single thing I do in life these days. So far so good, I still have a lot to go though since it’s a long book.

I’m going to lead you, kicking and screaming, giggling and laughing, into the future. I’m going to relax you, I’m going to get you! A spiritually cleansing derangment of the senses. The happy choas out of witch enlightment might come. Oh no that was real, lets get out of here.

Anyway, I think I’ve rambled on enough for the night. I hope you guys enjoy my new layout I just re-did again. I really love how WordPress is coming out with more and more free options for us basic users and more customizations. Finally. I remember when I had stated this there weren’t that many and now there are over 4 dozen free options with more that just keep on coming. So thank you, WordPress.
Cheers,
