17 Ideas for Your End of the Year Posts

Write those end of the year posts now

December is so close! And it will be a hectic month for everyone with getting ready for Christmas and New Years. I also know that work will also be exhausting for me since I work in retail and December is our busiest month.

With all that will be going on, I don’t want to get behind on my blogging. So I want to start planning my December posts now. And not just planning my posts, I’ll be writing them, making my graphics, and scheduling my posts. I did this last year, and it made my blog one less worry during the busy Holidays.

And I’m sure that you would like for your blog to be one less worry in December too! So, I’m going to give you 17 ideas for your end of the year posts!

  1. These are really good ideas, thanks! I’m so disorganised when it comes to end of the year blogging so I’m going to try and start next week ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Paula, you are totally a few steps ahead of me. I hadn’t even thought of “end of year” posts. I think many of these suggestions would be great to write out whether they are posted or not. I am especially thinking about the milestone one. It’s so easy to not take the time to think about these thing and act like nothing has changed. Fantastic ideas. Thanks for sharing!
