The Roundup: September

september-roundup

Holy Sh*t October is finally here, TWD is coming back in three weeks and I’m totally freaking out!! Who’s with me?

Hope you’re all enjoying your Autumn so far! We’ve had nothing but rain for the last couple of days, but I’m not complaining. There’s nothing better than getting lost in a good book on a rainy day.

The year is definitely slowly coming to an end and this is when I like to start thinking about some of the goals I can set for myself for the new year. This might be a little weird, but one of my goals for October is to start using Snapchat more. I see all my blogger friends use it, but in all honesty, I kind of struggle with it. Everyone keeps telling me that Snapchat is a tool that bloggers NEED to take advantage of, but I’m not convinced. I feel that keeping up with Instagram is time-consuming enough for me and I’d rather spend my free time working on new content for the blog. With that being said though, I do think that it’s a fun way to connect with my blog friends/audience, so I’m giving it a try, again (@Paula13t if you want to follow along).

We’ve also hit another milestone (two, actually!) 8,000 followers on Bloglovin’ and 10,000 followers on Pinterest! Welcome to anyone who’s new here, we’re happy to have you :).  As you guys know, Pinterest is my secret weapon to blogging success. Few months ago, I started to really focus on growing my following there along with expanding my traffic referrals. I started with 600 followers and in a few months I reached 10,000. You know what this means, right? Another Pinterest-related post is coming your way, very soon.

One other thing I’m excited about this month? The fact that The Girl On the Train is coming out next week! Who’s going to see it? I literally JUST read the book two weeks ago, in one sitting and I’m really excited to see the movie.

Moving on to our monthly roundup- if you’re new here, these roundups are where I sum up and link to all content that was published during the previous month. Happy October!
