Calling Holiday Guest Bloggers

Last year in the week leading up to Christmas, I did a short series of posts titled Tis the Season.  I shared family traditions, stories, favorite songs, and discussed what the holidays mean to me.

I’d like to make this an annual tradition, but there’s a catch: I can’t do it alone.

The planning, organizing, and writing for Tis the Season took a lot more work than I was expecting.  The whole series was done on a whim, with me making things up on the spot.  I didn’t mind the work–besides hanging out with family, I didn’t have anything better to do with my holiday break.

But, this year, I just don’t have time.  In addition to all the holiday decorating, baking, and family time, I have a job, am going to a week-long conference in St. Louis the day after Christmas, and am leaving the country on January 8.  When Tis the Season time comes around, my hands are pretty much full.

That’s where you come in.  I’d love to see Tis the Season grow into something bigger than Keep Your Feet.  The holiday season is all about togetherness, so what better way to celebrate than bring in a bunch of guest bloggers?

Tis the Season this year will go from December 18-24.  I’d love to have a post for each day, which means I need at least 7 contributors.  If more people are interested, I’m all for making the series longer or putting up multiple posts a day.

It’s really easy to get involved!  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, letting me know you want to participate.  Then, it’s up to you to write a guest post!  Possibilities are limitless, but keep it holiday themed.  I’ve got a list of prompts/ideas at the end of this post to help get your brain churning.

Please email me your post with a link to your blog by December 15.  This leaves me plenty of time to organize and format everything.  If you want any photos included, send those along as well.  Send emails to keepyourfeetblog@gmail.com.  I’ll include a link to your blog in the final post, so if you’re looking to get your blog out there, this is a great opportunity!

Post Ideas:

  • What holiday do you celebrate?
  • What does the holiday season mean to you?
  • What are some of your favorite holiday memories?
  • What are your favorite holiday songs, movies, etc.?
  • What is the best gift you’ve ever given/received?

Again, comment if you want to be involved!  I’m so excited to see what you all come up with and share the holiday season with you!
