#ContentWritingChat Recap: A Live Twitter Holiday GIF Party

Did you hear? In honor of the holiday season, we got pretty festive for this week’s #ContentWritingChat! If you missed out on the fun, you certainly missed a great time. But that’s okay because we have a recap for you to check out. Let’s dive in!

#ContentWritingChat Recap: Holiday GIF Party


It wasn’t just any old party over on #ContentWritingChat this week. It was a holiday GIF party! We asked participants to come prepared to bring their GIF A-game and we weren’t disappointed. Get ready for GIF overload!

Q1: GIF the weather where you are right now.

Considering our #ContentWritingChat participants are all around the world, we thought it would be fun to see what the weather was like in their neck of the woods. Is it feeling Christmassy where you are or is a white Christmas out of the question?

It sounds like Lexie and the team over at Netvantage Marketing are dealing with some cold temperatures lately. Make sure to bundle up, friends!

Hold onto your hats if you head out into some windy weather!

Colder than Mars? Yikes! Stay warm, Jeff and friends!

Sabina was dealing with some rain this past Tuesday, but she was just thankful it wasn’t snow.

It sounds like folks in Minnesota are ready for a good ol’ fashioned snowball fight!

Q2: Christmas is the only time of year when you can… (Explain in a GIF)

What can you only do at Christmas? Here’s what some of the participants in Tuesday’s chat had to say:

While it’s totally okay to show off your inner child all year long, it’s 100% acceptable to do so at Christmastime. So be sure to spread that Christmas cheer by singing loud for all to hear!

Christmas is the time of year when you can totally pig out on all the junk food and not feel guilty. Right?

Yeah, did we mention you can eat all the food you want? You totally can.

Christmas is certainly the only time of year you can bust out that ugly sweater!

Let’s just do all the things this Christmas!

And don’t forget to blast those Christmas tunes!

Q3: GIF your favorite Christmas movie scene (or two).

So, what’s your favorite scene from a Christmas movie? It sure seems like our chat participants have a clear favorite!

*waves hi to Buddy*

Who could forget that time when Buddy accuses the store Santa of smelling like beef and cheese?

Santa is coming soon, friends! We can’t wait!

Son of a nutcracker!

Sabina is right. This one definitely applies throughout the year.

Poor Buddy the Elf!

Well, who couldn’t love Elf?

Home Alone will forever be a Christmas classic.

Home Alone is one of Julia’s favorites as well. It doesn’t get much better than Kevin’s antics.

The Grinch is definitely a must-watch every year!

The struggle is real, my friends!

Sara’s choice was White Christmas. Is this one of your favorites, too?

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is always a great one for a laugh!

Christmas tip: Don’t eat the December snowflakes. Always wait until January.

Q4: What will dinner with the family at Christmas be like? GIF it.

Christmas dinner can be a very interesting time for many families. You might have a small gathering or a lot of people stopping by. And some of you may be dealing with one or two crazy relatives. Check out these responses from the chat:

This is pretty accurate. No one wants a dinner like the one the Griswold’s had.

With so much food, how will you know what to choose? And how can you fit it all onto one plate?!

It gets a little crazy when everyone starts to talk at the same time.

No one likes dealing with those awkward comments from family about your future.

Try stuffing your face with food to avoid any awkward conversations or questions!

Just keep eating, and eating, and eating…

Q5: GIF how you wrap up content marketing deadlines before Christmas.

With the holidays fast approaching and deadlines getting nearer, how do you get all of your work done before taking time off?

Typing like a mad woman to check things off that to-do list!

This time of the year is a mad rush for everyone!

Team work is very important when it comes to getting things done on time.

Sara’s got things under control when it comes to her to-do list!

Trying to squeeze one more thing in before leaving the office for the holiday…

Some of us just pretend to get work done!

When you realize all that work needs to be completed by a certain time…

Trying to get everything done before the holiday basically looks like this. Stressful!

The best way to procrastinate is to join our Twitter chat, right?

Q6: Be honest: do you write/blog/publish/tweet on or around Christmas? GIF the reality.

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, do you worry about creating content for your blog or social media? Tell the truth.

There’s no shame in scheduling your blog posts and tweets in advance. In fact, it’s the best way to ensure you have great content going out while you’re enjoying the holiday.

Julia checks out for the day and is totally offline for Christmas day. It’s the best way to spend the day, right? Just enjoy the time with friends and family!

Sara still publishes new content, but she makes sure it’s all holiday-related.

The team at Rival IQ sees a decrease in engagement this year, so they cut back on content creation.

It’s safe to say Jeff won’t be anywhere near his devices during Christmas!

I mean, you have to know your priorities, right?

Q7: Offline or online for Christmas Day? GIF it.

These days we are so connected to our devices that it’s rare we ever fully disconnect. But will you be offline for Christmas Day?

There’s no better way to say it than with Michelle Tanner’s catchphrase.

Kavita definitely won’t be online.

Not taking those messages on Christmas is probably a good idea. Silence the notifications and you’ll be good!

But sometimes it’s just so hard to stay away from your phone!

Who could resist getting that Instagram-worthy shot of the delicious Christmas dessert?

You might find Jeff playing a video game or two on Christmas day!

Q8: Share your favorite Christmas GIF.

To wrap up the chat, we asked everyone to share their favorite Christmas GIF. Just check out this awesomeness:

Well, it is pretty hard to pick just one!

Great choice from Tony!

It doesn’t get much better than the Griswold family!

Since Julia doesn’t see snow in south Texas, she loves the snow GIFs. And who could blame her?

CHRISTMAS!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our holiday GIF party. We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
