Here are some ideas for Blogmas posts:
If you are looking for more festive content, you can schedule posts in advance. This way they will be published automatically on the correct day! Blogmas is about being organised and creative, so why not take advantage of this time to get ahead?
When you are thinking about the festive content you want to post, don't always think of writing something new. You can recycle some older posts that fit into the theme of Blogmas or try repurposing old blog posts by adding a few festive touches to them.
If you want to get even more organised, create a content calendar so that you don't forget what you have planned for Blogmas. A calendar will also help remind other people about the daily content they should be posting!
Don't forget to promote your blog post on social media so that your followers know about the new content you have made created.
You can use one social media platform or you can change it up, just remember to include #blogmas so that everyone knows what the hashtag is. Remember to put your new blog posts in the correct order because people will be visiting your blog on different days and they expect to see something new!
Make sure you are including some festive hashtags so that people feel the festive season vibes!
