Day 30|A farewell coffee date. How did the Blog-tember Challenge go for you?
I can't believe that it's already the last day of September, I feel like it was just yesterday that I embarked on this journey with Brave Love and so many fellow bloggers! I have loved every moment of this challenge. Every prompt has forced me a little further out of my box and made me think even more about what I pour out into this space.
There have been some days that I didn't plan well enough for the prompts and so I missed the opportunity share my favorite fashion trend or make a vlog, but I'm hoping that I'll add those to my my blog to-do list.
And then there were days when I was just being lazy, like the past week. It wasn't that I didn't want to blog, but as all bloggers know, the weight of what's going on in life can sometimes overtake even the most thought out of blog posts. But I'm back and ready to hit the ground running into October!
Some of my favorite posts/prompts from this month were:
Day 5| I'm passionate about____
Day 7|What's on your current reading list?
Day 9|Let's talk personality types.
Day 14|When did you start blogging and why?
Day 21|Fall favorites.
All in all, it's been a wonderful month! I've loved connecting with so many new bloggers and reading about their lives. I hope to continue to maintain this community! Thanks again to Bailey Jean for starting the challenge.
That's a wrap on September! See y'all in October!
What's been your favorite part of September?
Day 29|What are your go-to blogging resources? What would you recommend to a beginner?
Okay, so this one is going to be short and sweet! I really only have two places I go for my blogger questions.
>>Pinterest<< if ever I need an answer to something creative, then Pinterest it is! This is where I look for new ideas for posts as well as find new blogs I may want to follow. I also find myself pinning things about blogging for income and ways to take better pictures. All in all, Pinterest is my number one.
>>Other Blogs<< I've come across several other blogs that have tips for beginning bloggers and I will often pop over there when I have some questions about the blog life. Plus, it's always nice to see how someone else does something. Some of my favorite are...
And that's all. Between these blogs, the ones I come across on Pinterest and life, I've got my blogging bases covered... I think. Of course there's always room for improvement but I'm thankful for where this blog is in the here and now.
Do you have any blogging resources you want to share?
Day 27| What's on your wish list?
I'm always terrible at answering this question, because I can never think of anything I want in the moment; meanwhile, a week later everything hits me! Just so know, there's probably more on my wishlist than currently comes to mind.
>>shoes<< duh! It's fall and almost time to break out my favorite shoes. I currently own two pair of boots, but they're both brown so I'm searching for a black pair I like. This has been a two year process (I can be somewhat picky) so I'm hoping that the third year is a charm.
I'm considering ending my TOMS free life and getting a pair of gray ones!
Lastly, I've been without rain boots for a while now and I have had my eye on these. I'm not sure what I'm waiting for either.
>>sunglasses<< I love sunglasses! At one point in my life, I had enough sunglasses for everyone in my car to borrow a pair. But as time goes on, almost all of them have broken or been lost. So in the spirit of restocking, I'm getting these...probably today. They're too cute and so cheep.
>>pens<< these have been on my wish list, literally, for years! It's just one of those things I forget about when it's time to pick out new pens. I'm a snob when it comes to the pens I like to write with and a friend of mine from camp had these and they were like writing with ink made by angles... haha, if that explains anything. And just look at all those colors!
>>camera<< I have a great camera on my phone and want to put it to good use. So I'm looking into getting this tripod and external lens for it.
I think that's all for now. Again, I'm sure that as I'm laying in bed tonight a long list of things I want will come flooding into my mind. Perhaps I'll write them down for Christmas.
What's on your wishlist?
