Those of you who have been following Renard’s World from day one would know that I am not fond of Christmas. If you are a recent follower or someone who managed to come across my blog for the first time, my blog post, 5 Reasons Why I Am Not Fond Of Christmas, will provide you with some insight as to what I truly think about this so-called joyous holiday.
Now, even though I am not fond of Christmas, I have love and respect for those people who adore the Christmas Season.
So, I am taking this opportunity to say to all of the Christmas-lovers, “A Merry Christmas to you!”
After all, Christmastime comes once a year and I sincerely want you to have an enjoyable time.
I Will Be Spending Christmas With My Family
Most people that I know are accustomed to spending Christmas with their family (So, it is not all that surprising that I will be doing the same with mine).
Giving gifts and exchanging compliments with each other is to be expected.
Also, I have plans of sleeping for quite a long period in my bed (I genuinely believe that I deserve it because of all of the painting, the varnishing, the cleaning and all of the other various things that come along with getting one’s home fully prepared for the Christmas Season).
Will you be spending Christmas with your family?
I Will Be Checking Out Some Blogs On Christmas Day
All bloggers know, that the blogosphere is always active (Christmas does not get in the way of those hardcore bloggers; they are the ones who will let us know how they plan on spending this time of the year).
The good news is that the WordPress Reader will still be filled with the types of blog posts that we love to read (In spite of it being the Christmas Season).
Besides, I am curious to find out what it is that my fellow bloggers are up to.
Are you the type of person who reads blog posts on Christmas Day?
Thank You For Following “Renard’s World”
Without you, my blog would have been unable to see its second Christmas in the blogosphere; which is why I am taking this opportunity to say, “Thank you for following my blog!”
Surprisingly, I even received followers on Christmas Day.
Anyway, I am grateful for all of my followers (Practicing what is known as the attitude of gratitude will no doubt attract more followers to my blog).
By the way, if you happen to be one of those people that are interested in cultivating an attitude of gratitude, Jessica Cassity’s article, How to Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude, will shed some light on this interesting topic.
Are you truly grateful for all of the people who chose to follow your blog?
Seasons Greetings To All Of The Guest Authors
Merry Christmas to all of my beloved guest authors; they are:
Those lovely people were kind enough to participate in my guest blogging project (And, I am also looking out for more amazing guest posts from them in the near future).
I also have intentions of adding more guest authors to my list.
If you would like to be a guest author on Renard’s World, please send me an email (My contact information is located on my Contact page).
You Might Be One Of Those People Who Suffer From The Christmas Blues
If you are like me (someone who dreads the arrival of Christmas), you may want to find some innovative methods of overcoming your Christmas Blues; which can be accomplished by doing the following things:
- By going on a long walk into Nature.
- By spending some quality time with someone who lives alone.
- By watching children play and by listening to their infectious laughter.
- By chatting with a positive-minded friend via a phone call or a video chat.
- By watching a comedy on television.
- By playing the genre of music that you like on your sound system.
Dear friend, those are merely a handful of things that you can do to overcome the Christmas Blues.
I am sure that you can come up with other things that will brighten your mood for this Christmas Season.
I Am So Happy That Blogmas Has Ended
For the record, publishing a blog post daily for the month of December is a very easy thing for me to do.
However, I am more of a “Publish one blog post weekly,” kind of a guy.
Blogathons have a way of forcing a blogger to become creative (And, believe me, you will need to be extra creative in order to produce content for your blog on a daily basis).
No more blogathons for me; I will be resuming my weekly schedule.
This Blogmas project almost did not work out because of the following reasons:
- I ended up getting the Flu earlier in the month of December.
- I was extremely tired.
- I did not always feel like publishing a blog post (But I went ahead with it anyway).
- I had a minuscule amount of recreational time for myself.
I have said in the past (and I will say it again), “The blogging experience is supposed to one that is filled with fun and not one that feels like some type of arduous task.”
I can now say with a smirk on my face, “Goodbye Blogmas!”
Next time, I will exercise a bit of commonsense and not be impulsive where blogathons are concerned.
I am deeply appreciative of all of my readers and followers (And, you should feel the same way about your readers and followers too).
From a realistic perspective, there are lots of blogs that did not see their first Christmas (People started them and ended them in a short space of time).
Therefore, if your blog managed to see its first Christmas (or whichever number), you should count your blessings.
Do keep in mind that Christmas is a time for everyone to be sincerely happy.
I am grateful for the gift of life.
You are grateful for gift of life.
As a matter of fact, everyone should be grateful for the gift of life (Due to the fact, that it is one of the greatest gifts that was ever given).
Now, what you choose to do with that gift is entirely up to you!
Also, thank you for supporting Renard’s World throughout the year.
I hereby promise to continue publishing the types of blog posts that you love.
May your Christmas be a most memorable one for you.
And, love and light to each and every one of you!
