Welcome to December!

What a ride November was. We had decided to experiment and try to get a series going, so we created a theme for the month called Thank You For. We reached out to the blogging communities and got a huge, overwhelming response with such beautiful stories of gratitude! It was more powerful that we had imagined it would be, so….

We decided to keep the monthly themes going!

December is the month of the holidays, which means two very contrasting things: the happiness that comes from the magic of the time of year, with the lights, the music, and the crisp air; and the depression that accompanies the end of another year, and, for many, having to return home and visit with difficult families. Since our goal is to spread a positive and joyful message to the world, and in an effort to keep you all somewhat sane during a time that can be pretty hectic and chaotic, we chose to focus on the happiness aspect. We asked our contributors to talk about what happiness means to them.

We have an incredible lineup of writers, and we can’t wait for you to read what they wrote! Editing these pieces was such delight that we are still feeling warm and fuzzy from the experience. This is definitely a series worth visiting.

Words Between Coasts want to send a big THANK YOU to our contributing writers, both returning and brand new for writing us such wonderful pieces! We are so lucky to have stumbled upon this supportive, thoughtful, and fun community! We are just brimming with pride and joy at the support from you and the incredible pieces you wrote. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Our series’ have gotten such great responses that we have decided to extend the monthly themes into 2019! Keep an eye out for the next month’s themes – we would love to grow with you all, and if you have something you’d like to write for us, please don’t hesitate to contact us! It can be part of our monthly series ideas, or it could be general content all your own. The writing opportunities are endless! We have many different growing sections in our website, plus we love promoting artists and charities. Don’t be shy – join in our WBC family!

We hope you have a very merry, happy, and joyful holiday season!
