Blog Reads Of October

I'm writing this a little earlier this month as I got a post for Halloween! But here's my favourite blog reads of October -

1) Oversharing on your blog | How much is TMI? | Sinead Kathryn
If you're worried about what you want to share and what you think is appropriate to share online, ask yourself this - can you tell a complete stranger in public what you would like to post online? If the answer is no, then you shouldn't share it online. I'm like Sinead, I like to share my innermost thoughts, but I don't want to come across as an over-sharer, or even worse still, an attention seeker. Like Sinead says, its good to open up, you can become a relatable blogger by doing that. But obviously don't tell your readers something *too* personal.

2) 5 Lazy Day Essentials | Shannon Michelle
Who doesn't love a lazy day? I know I do from time to time. This is why I loved Shannon's post. I immediately wanted to embark on a lazy day after reading her post. All the essentials she's listed that you will need to achieve that lazy day status, from candles, to Netflix, to wearing pyjamas whilst eating comfort food, these are definitely compulsory you will need in order to have the laziest day possible.

If you want to sort out your Instagram engagement or how to spot the fake followers and bots, then please read this post. Victoria made me understand the awful algorithm better and the those pesky people who follow/unfollow. I hate people who use bots or buy fake engagement, I want to gain more followers myself rather than rely on fake followers to do that for me. I want an organic following at the end of the day, by achieving that, it shows I've worked hard.

I've been a huge fan of Viktoria's writing for a long time now. As people know, I love to exercise, and not just because I have to. If you're somebody who is struggling to find to commit to going to the gym every week or just do a daily mile, then read this post. From finding the motivation to feeling to first lot of muscle pain you'll feel after a good session, this post covers it all.

When reading Hannah's post, one sentence really stood out to me - 80% of people have stretch marks and 90% of women and 10% of men have cellulite. Which means almost every woman has them. So why am I embarrassed and sometimes ashamed of my body for giving me stretch marks and cellulite when it's not just me?! Like Hannah says, there is nothing wrong with saying you don't like your body, we're all body conscious. This post Hannah's written makes me see that we're all human and we all have flaws. I really enjoyed reading this. Plus I want those bikini's Hannah is wearing because the pattern is gorgeous.

A huge shoutout to Ellie for someone to have the guts to talk about the subject and say exactly what other blogger's are thinking - some blogger's do start blogging for the money - and there's nothing wrong with that. Blogging is all about the writing also, I know that, that's the reason I got into blogging. But you can make money off your blog, but that is your choice at the end of the day. As Ellie says, blogging is a tough industry and if you are in it for the money, you probably won't stick around long.

7) How to get yourself out of a creativity rut | Emily Becca
All us blogger's have been there. We've sat in front of the laptop, just staring at a blank screen with no clue what to write about. But Emily has written some great point of how to get yourself out of that funk and just focus on you. Don't force content, try a change of scenery, surround yourself with people who inspire and just try something new are some of the things Emily has suggested to try. I'm definitely going to try some of Emily's ideas because I hate those days where I'm stuck in a creativity rut and can't think of anything to write or take photo's of.
