Hi,

Just wondering how many of you will be working through the Christmas period? Whether it is building sites, writing articles OR just replying to the odd emails.

I don't get to take much time out so I'm finishing on Monday and coming back to IM on 4th January. I will though be replying to emails as and when I can (just for 15 - 30 mins per day).

Are you taking a couple of weeks off from your internet business or will you be working?

Andy

p.s. - Have a great Christmas either way!! :-) Ho ho ho!

    I have family coming in from December 20th to Jan 3rd. So I am going to hang out with all of them. We just finished building a new house so this is our first Christmas where the whole family can come over and fit in our new home without having someone eating in the kitchen on a card table, so cool.

    I will probably peek in from time to time, I have the advantage of being a full time marketer and work from my home as well.

    Happy Holidays

    I will have to squeeze in some time working. But will be on the road so I may be limited on the amount of time spent.

    I'm finishing up after this weekend and won't be back working until the new year. I'm going to my parents and they don't have internet access (which is probably a good thing as I mightn't be able to resist).

    I have a 2 day a week part-time offline job that gets busier around holidays so I'll be working that some extra hours through Christmas and New Years.

    But also working IM and writing and....when you office is in the room down the hall, it's hard to stay out of it!

    No rest for this weary dude. I'll probably take Christmas Day off, but I bet not. I'll sneak in something productive. My family are all about 1000 miles away from where I live now, and I couldn't work out travel plans this year, so yeah, it's gonna be a working holiday. No biggy. I'll get a jump on 2010.

    It's just another day - if I feel like doing some work I will.

    I'll be having the big Xmas dinner with relatives etc, but may do something when I get home.

    Some days I do nothing, so I gotta do work some time when I actually feel like it

    I'll be working a lot except for Christmas day. I'm taking a week off in January to relax in California. Even then, I'll still be checking in while I'm gone just to make sure all is well. There is always something to do.

      I will be working most of christmas day once I eat with the family. I am ready to start 2010 off with a bang so I am trying to pump out as much content as I can to make it the best year so far!

      Happy holidays to all!

    A little bit. My wife works at a school so I generally try and take the same time off that she has. That being said, I need to get my new wine website up and running with the shopping cart so things could get quite hectic in the next day or two.

    I will probably be working. Still have a lot of university stuff to do so it's not really a period of holidays.

    Might take a couple of days off, even though it's difficult to not do IM related stuff if you're near a computer.

        Yea, I'll be around. I don't do it so it's just another couple of days for me. If it happened to be Saturday and Sunday then no I wouldn't cause it would be the weekend anyway. I'll also be around New Year.

    I'll be spending time with the family over the holidays, but will be working as well. I couldn't bail altogether as we'll running a sale on the entire Incansoft catalog starting on Christmas eve; not that I could stay away from work that long anyway.

    According to my wife and other family members I'm addicted to working on my computer. I swear I'm not. I'm going to show them and not work during the Christmas season. Well I'll only work until sevenish, nineish or until I fall asleep on Christmas Eve.

    Since I'm getting a wireless keyboard and mouse on Christmas evening (shh it's a surprise) I will have to train my wrist and fingers all over again to fit the new keyboards and mouse on Christmas morning.

    As you know this is a delicate period of time in breaking in a new keyboard and mouse and must be done with a good deal of fortitude and perseverance (about 16 hours a day). I'm thinking right on up through Dec 31 2011, should get it broken in and then it will be time to get another new one.

    So as I said there will be no working for me.

    I'm taking a two week break from my day job but will definitely be checking e-mails and internet stats (apart from the fact that I'm addicted, the e-mails would be completely out of control if I didn't check them every day).

    Happy Holidays, everyone!

    Wow. I can't believe the amount of people actually working on Christmas day. That is one day of the year I could not work. Maybe I'm just a big kid at heart and love the 'magic' of it.

    I think 2010 will be a busy year for me so I'm deifinately going to be taking a two week break and then coming back in the new year with a bang... and a clear focus on what needs doing.

    As mentioned, I will probs check my emails when I can but 99% of what I do will resume after the holidays.

    Heres to a successful 2010 for all of us marketers!!
