I thought it would be fun create a Christmas-themed post called “Christmas Cheer” with pictures from all of you and to find out what each of YOU love about Christmas. This is the first time I’ve ever tried a post with everyone submitting something, and I hope you will join me in spreading Christmas cheer this year! So how does this work? It’s simple
- Create a post on your blog and answer the question “What do you love about Christmas?” Title the post “Christmas Cheer”.
- Include a photo that represents Christmas to you. It can be a literal photo of a Christmas present as the one I took below or something more abstract, whatever you like! It must be your own photo though.
- Schedule your post for December 20th at 8 am PST which is when my post will go live.
- Include my link in your blog so people can come see everyone else’s posts. Here’s my link: http://wp.me/p1MGTF-24K
- Email me at email@example.com your image renamed with your last name and resized to 1000 px longest side.
- In the email, please include the link to your blog post. If I don’t get your link, I won’t be able to figure out what blog you are and won’t be able to include your photo in my post.
DEADLINE FOR YOU TO SUBMIT YOUR INFO TO ME IS DECEMBER 18th at 8 am PST.
Please double check to make sure all items above have been completed and then you are done! If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks everyone! And ho ho ho!

Such a cool idea Laura. OK, now I have to work on my pic!
December 11, 2016 at 2:37 pm
Yay! I’m glad you’d like to participate. 🙂 I didn’t give too much notice because I didn’t think of it until this morning.
December 11, 2016 at 12:47 pm
Beautiful bokeh present, Laura. Fun idea about Christmas…. 🎄
December 11, 2016 at 2:38 pm
Thanks Jane. 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you do LOL. (Big assumption.)
December 11, 2016 at 10:46 pm
I’m not so great with homework. 🙂 lol
December 11, 2016 at 11:01 pm
I’m not usually either LOL. No worries! Best you don’t because I don’t want to have to put you in the corner!! 😉
December 11, 2016 at 12:54 pm
Very cool, Laura! Thank you for giving us enough time to work on it. 🙂
December 11, 2016 at 5:24 pm
I’m glad you’d like to participate Amy! I would’ve given more notice than I did but I just thought of this today. 🙂
December 11, 2016 at 5:32 pm
One week for this post should work. 🙂
December 11, 2016 at 5:33 pm
December 11, 2016 at 3:45 pm
Two things I like abut Christmas are your GORGEOUS holiday banner and the lovely bokeh effect on the photo of the present.
December 11, 2016 at 5:25 pm
Thank you so much John! The header was from last year and the bokeh present was just a few days ago.
December 11, 2016 at 5:36 pm
sounds like fun…….I’ll see what I can rustle up by then
December 11, 2016 at 5:40 pm
Yay! Glad you’ll be participating!

Christmas? Kids home! Messing up my nice, little routine!
December 13, 2016 at 3:56 pm
December 12, 2016 at 5:55 am
presenting a prompt we can all unpack – will inform my camera
December 12, 2016 at 7:34 am
Thanks Laura 🙂
December 12, 2016 at 6:53 am
Great idea – I will have to put a note on my calendar to remember to do this!!!
December 12, 2016 at 7:23 am
Awesome! Please do. I can’t wait to see what everyone does!
December 13, 2016 at 3:44 pm
Christmas? Bah! Humbug! (Of course I’ll participate. But I won’t enjoy it!)
December 13, 2016 at 3:55 pm
I appreciate the extreme sacrifice! 😀
December 13, 2016 at 4:14 pm
I already wrote it. Now I just have to find a photo that truly represents how I feel about it!
December 13, 2016 at 4:16 pm
That’s great! I need to do mine too. Probably this weekend! I find it funny that no one commented on the christmas package I took that I used for the blog post. I think it’s one of the better shots I’ve ever taken. Really strange!
December 13, 2016 at 8:25 pm
Laura, you’ve got so many great shots that we are spoiled and just take it for granted. Personally I like your landscapes best, though I did like this gift shot with the bokeh. But maybe, everyone who saw it on here had already seen it elsewhere and just figured they had already commented. Or liked.
December 13, 2016 at 8:48 pm
Thanks for those comforting words. I think I’m having a lousy day. All this trump stuff has got me stressed and depressed. I’m glad you enjoy my landscapes. I love going to these beautiful places! Hope you have a good night. And thanks again. 😊😊
December 13, 2016 at 9:22 pm
I was so depressed yesterday from the news (all Trumpishness) that I went to bed at 8:30 at night and slept on and off till 6 am!
December 13, 2016 at 10:22 pm
I made a post yesterday on FB ranting about it. I deleted it later. When will learn not to post about it. Sometimes I just can’t help myself! I hope we can take the next four years. I guess I need to not follow the news so often. 😦
December 14, 2016 at 7:34 am
My problem is that Lynn reads the news constantly. So I can’t escape it.
December 14, 2016 at 7:59 am
Yeah I do too. I’m listening now! Dave is so tired of it but I’m addicted.
December 18, 2016 at 6:11 pm
Yes, the way of it. The best shot i posted in the last two months got the least likes.
Laura, no Christmas at my house but want to say that visiting your blog has always beem a pleasure. Merry Christmas to you and all.
December 18, 2016 at 6:43 pm
Thanks robert. How about happy holidays.
December 13, 2016 at 5:20 pm
What do I love about Christmas? Knowing you are my friend as beautiful as that box. Would love to participate but … TIME. 😙😙😙
December 13, 2016 at 6:15 pm
No worries Amy :-). Thank you for what you said. ❤️
December 15, 2016 at 4:55 pm
Sounds like fun. But. How does one get a link for one’s own post that hasn’t yet been published?
December 15, 2016 at 7:42 pm
Ahh well when you are in that compose area, there is a button called “create a short link”. Just click that and then copy the link that shows. Or….click preview and then copy the URL.
December 17, 2016 at 11:16 am
December 17, 2016 at 8:19 am
Hi Laura, I just emailed you a photo for this theme. Hope it works.
December 17, 2016 at 1:16 pm
Thanks Amy 🙂 I emailed you back, however, I didn’t get the short link for the post. See your email and respond there if you can please? Thanks much!
December 17, 2016 at 2:29 pm
Done. Thank you for letting me know, Laura!
December 17, 2016 at 5:15 pm
Thank YOU too! 😀
