Ever heard of blogmas?
Blog every day from December 1st until Christmas. It doesn’t have to be something too long – it doesn’t even have to be text, it can be an infographic, for example.
But you have to publish every day. Blogmas is a fun challenge that helps you get used to blogging more frequently.
Make your first blogmas post explaining what blogmas is and committing to it. You can even set a little – or a big – gift to reward yourself when you make it. Talk about extra motivation!
An interesting alternative to Blogmas is Vlogmas. If you prefer making videos every day instead of blogging every day, here you go.

You can have some fun while giving your Christmas gifts. Share your favourite pranks and, if you’ve done them, tell the story.
