Blog Reads of September

This post really caught my eye, for good reasons, well, in a way. Honestly Meg, its a great post! But it's so sad that you had to write about blogging toxicity as unfortunately it does exist in the blogging world and it's been at it's worst for the last few weeks. From copying blog posts (don't ever do that) to the follow/unfollow game, it's such a shame that other blogger's have taken it upon themselves to behave this way, it really isn't on! Well done Meg for saying what everyone else has been thinking!

Thanks to Amie this post has me incredibly excited for Autumn! I love this season. The thoughts that Amie has written are bang on. I love fireworks night, cwtching up in a blanket with a cuppa in one hand and the TV remote in the other. Also the sight of leaves falling from the trees is just amazing. How can you not like Autumn?! If you're still unsure, then read Amie's post. I guarantee you'll be convinced that Autumn is just bloody great as I am!

3) Is there such a thing as 'the one'? | Sinead Kathryn
I'm a firm believer in fate. "Everything happens for a reason" and "What's meant to be will always find a way". Like Sinead, in school I dreamt of meeting that perfect man, well, he had to drive a Lamborghini and be obscenely rich like Christian Grey. But daydreaming aside, maybe there is a perfect person out there for everyone. But I think Sinead is right, it's up to ME to choose the right one. Maybe I should look closer to home for the perfect man rather than daydreaming about someone I have no chance with. Hmm...
But seriously though, this post Sinead has written really gets you thinking and I loved reading it.

4) Why do we put so much pressure on ourselves? | Colours & Carousels
Why is there a pressure in society for us to reach certain milestones and points in our lives? Charlotte says it's just best to muddle through and let things happen naturally. I couldn't agree more with her. I don't want to feel pressured by society or by reading stuff online about where I should be in my life. I am happy to take things at my own pace and not be told where I should be. Like Charlotte, if I don't push myself and go for it, I'm a failure. I'm not going to let myself or anyone else for that matter think like that. A great post from Charlotte.

I am the biggest procrastinator I know. I need a rocket up my arse on some days to get me to tick off stuff on my ever-growing to-do list. I am one to put it off until the last millisecond before I do the task in hand. But Em gives some great ways to get your backside in gear and get those jobs done. I especially loved the one where you prioritise your tasks in terms what needs doing the soonest then leave the least urgent task until last. It is all about being productive. On a good day, I am productive as the next blogger, but some days I need lots of motivation to get me moving!


6) Is relatability important in social media? | Bryony Baker
In answer to this question - abso-bloody-lutely! I'm exactly like Bryony in what I think about £500 Primark hauls - it doesn't interest me. I could go and do that tomorrow if I wanted to (well, my bank account would tell me otherwise) but I don't think many people I know outside of the blogging world would be remotely interested in a video like that. I prefer influencers in YouTube videos to talk about the life issues of today and opening things up for discussion. "There is nothing better than sitting down on a Sunday evening and sinking my eyes into a good old Hannah Gale post" I couldn't agree with you more Bryony! Speaking of which...

Just as I thought I had wrapped up this post and was finally starting to think that I had a few organisational skills in blogging, along came Lauren with this amazing post about the benefits of reading. *Clicks Edit Post button on Blogger". I'm very much like Lauren, I love getting stuck into a good book. I'd read all day, every day if I could. As Lauren says, reading increases your creativity skills and also it is a really good form of escapism. Any form of escapism from my life is a huge bonus. Reading is definitely one of them.
