Happy Holidays! And a Christmas Bonus

Happy Holidays! December has been a bit of a crazy month, and I'll admit, you haven't heard all that much from me on the blog here. But I thought I would take a little bit of time and thank you for following me on this crazy experiment this year, and wish you and your family a happy holiday season, whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or another holiday.

My Christmas Present to You

If you do like Christmas, then I have something fun for you. I've curated a playlist (I've done this before, but I think I did it better this time) of some of my favorite holiday songs, and will be posting them to Twitter every hour (at the :30 mark) all day on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It should give you some insight into my tastes and preferences, between novelty songs, classics, and crooners.

This year, I've tried (I think I was mostly successful) to link each song to a youtube video containing the whole song, as well as an Amazon link if you want to buy the song for digital download. Legal Transparency Disclaimer of Sorts: All of the Amazon links that I will be sharing are affiliate links, so I will get a few pennies if you buy one of my favorite songs. Maybe that's your present to me. But really, I just wanted to share and enjoy some holiday music with you that has been pretty special to me.

So, if you don't follow me on Twitter (no, really, you should), then either fix that problem or just look for my special hashtag for the playlist - #CameronsChristmasPlaylist - you should find maybe a couple of tweets from 2013 when I did this before, and then the new and improved ones tomorrow and Friday.

But Wait, There's More

OK, so I probably won't actually wait until tomorrow. Check this evening if you want to get your Christmas spirit on early. I'd say, maybe... 8:30 PM Central Time?

What Can You Get Me For Christmas?

Really? You want to get me something? Hey, that's great. I really appreciate it, and honestly, the ability to communicate with you here is more than enough gift. But if you do really want to get me something, then I have the perfect last-minute gift idea that you can give me and it won't cost you a thing. That's right - something I would love and it is free for you to give. Join my mailing list. That's it. There's no long-term commitment, and I will send you updates when I post stuff to the blog (you can reply straight to me from the emails instead of having to come all the way over here to the blog every week). I might send you a few other things, too, from time to time.

Want to get me something else? Wow, you really are generous. Well, I will make it easy for you. Click this link and tweet something nice about the site to your friends. Then head on over to Facebook and Like my page. If you have done all of that? Well, there's not much more I could ask for.

Have yourself a wonderful holiday season.
