5 Blog Posts to Read This Week | Blogmas Day 19
Usually I spend 50% of my blogging time publishing content, and another half promoting content and reading other blogs. Unfortunately one of the downsides of Blogmas is all my time is being eaten up by shooting, editing, writing, proofreading, and finally publishing.
But even if I haven't been reading and commenting as much as I would have liked, there have been some posts that caught my eye in Bloglovin' that I couldn't resist reading.
Also I apologize for falling so behind on replying to comments 😔 I hope to be all caught up by the end of the week.
