Shopping is as synonymous with Thanksgiving as turkey and dressing. At my house, when the feast ends, the race for the sales papers begins.
Stores that rarely advertise during the year seem to save their best for the biggest shopping season of the year. I exited the “day after” scene years ago, but some of my friends continue the tradition, waking up early and hitting the usual hotspots like Walmart and Target, proving that Black Friday continues to draw the heaviest crowds. But there’s growing number of us that have opted to sleep in and fill our wish lists online. Cyber Monday is for us.
This holiday season, I am overly “emo” about everything. Every sad movie scene (The Best Man Holiday and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire really did a number on me), or depressing verse in any sappy song (please don’t play All I Want For Christmas in my presence) you can best believe that I am in tears accompanied by a snotty nose and uncontrollable lip quivers.
If there’s one person in your life that truly understands the struggle of all things blogging it’s none other than your blogger boo.
See this boo-thang isn’t like your regular besties. Other than being a shoulder to lean on in your non blogging life, they can totally relate to the triumphs of blogging–getting in contact with that brand you’ve been stalking for weeks, late night writing sessions where full paragraphs are never really formulated and they can often curate those much-needed words of encouragement during the tribulations of finding ways to take your brand to the next level.
