How I Attempted Vlogmas and Failed Epically

If you couldn’t have guessed by the lack of activity on my YouTube channel lately, I have epically failed at doing Vlogmas. And I’m not using the word “epically” as an exaggeration. I honestly mean epically. But how can I come to that conclusion even when there’s still just a few days left for me to recover? Well, y’all, at this point, Vlogmas is a lost cause. I’m not writing this post as a “oh pity me” or a “please forgive me” but as a reminder that real life and personal health always, always, always come before anything relating to social media. Always. No exceptions.

I really think the message of this post is applicable any time of year, but it’s especially important now that it’s the holidays. I get so caught up in Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, blogging, and everything else that I forget to take time for myself. Not only for myself, but for my family and enjoying the holidays and being in the Christmas spirit.

First off, let’s talk about what Blogmas and Vlogmas are. Essentially, Blogmas and Vlogmas are a 25 day challenge for online content creators. There’s no official requirements, but you’re supposed to publish something every single day from December 1st until Christmas Day (aka December 25th). It’s content full of holiday goodness and festive fun! I’m not quite sure where the idea originated, but people are integrating the challenge on so many different social platforms – blogs, YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, you name it.

Five Vloggers to Watch During VLOGMAS!

The month of December is probably one of my most favorite months out of the entire year. So many fun and festive things occur, and there’s nothing like the feeling of the holiday spirit. Aside from decorating, sending cards, watching Christmas movies, and listening to Christmas music 24/7, I LOVE watching people’s Vlogmas videos. Vlogmas is similar to Blogmas except it is for vlogging!
