I can’t help but have a big smile on my face today. That is because no matter how old I get—or how many years it’s been since I actually asked Santa for a gift—this time of year is truly magical. From the whimsical window displays lining Fifth Avenue to the holiday-adorned cups at Starbucks to the flooding of Christmas carols on the radio, the weeks immediately following Thanksgiving right until New Year’s Day unquestionably bring out the inner five-year-old in all of us.
Everybody loves the holidays. Between the surplus of savory sweets and the extra days off to spend with family, this magical time of year gives everyone that indescribable glow and something to smile about. But it can also leave your workers feeling unmotivated, distracted, and altogether lazy.
And while some facets of work can take a back seat the next few weeks, your blog cannot. Already 65 percent of businesses that have a blog haven’t updated their blog in one year or more. All it takes is a few bad weeks of ignoring your blog and you can quickly be heading down a similar road.
