HELP! What do you do with your blog over Christmas?

So first of all I’d like to take this opportunity to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and yours! I hope you enjoy the holidays, stay safe, and get to spend lots of time with your family and friends!

I’m still super-new to all this, so this is my first Christmas as a blogger! But I find myself in a bit of a quandary: What are you meant to do with your blog over the holidays?

I’ve broken up from work now until 4th January and, while I’ll no doubt be tweeting my way through the holidays, I imagine my tweets will be about rather more inane things than usual (if that’s at all possible!) and a lot more sporadic. So what’s standard protocol amongst bloggers and what do YOU do?

As far as I can see I have three options:

  1. Leave it alone for a fortnight and begin again as normal in the new year
  2. Post as normal and to my usual schedule
  3. Post some sporadic festive stuff as and when I’m inspired

I don’t even know whether anyone will read my posts over the holidays – after all, it’s a time for family, friends and celebrating.

So what do you think? All ideas are welcome!

    Hi Wendy- First, Merry Christmas. Second, my approach to my blog is to post some holiday related things, post some new information, and bring back some old posts that I know I wrote before many people were reading my blog. It seems to be working for me.

    Hope you have a happy New Year!

      Hi Trish – Merry Christmas to you too! 🙂 Thanks for your comments – that’s a great idea about bringing back some old posts. Sadly, I don’t think I have enough posts to do that yet, but this time next year it’ll hopefully be an ideal plan! I think I’m going to go for one lighthearted post and then get back to business just after the new year!

      Happy new year to you too!

    Personally I would be happy reading about bacon…nomnomnom – after all what is better than bacon and the holidays. Seriously what is better????
