I DID IT!
I am so happy Blogtober is over — don't get me wrong, I've had a lot of fun. But it's also been a challenge to come up with interesting content daily for 31 days in a row. So many days!
So here's a quick run-down of what I did, what was posted, and what you can still do:
I hosted FOUR giveaways, all of which end at midnight EST today (Oct 31), so if you haven't entered them, you should head there now and get in your last entries you can!
(Prizes include a poster, two hardcover books, and a handmade journal I made from my Etsy shop)
I reviewed 11 books this month (whew), hit my Goodreads goal (yay!), and a few really stood out as favorites, so check out the reviews below of why I loved these the most this month.
I actually did a top ten post for once, but I changed it up a little bit. My version is stuff I'm going to be doing rather than going out and socializing on Halloween!
Some other things I did include
A post on stuff in Louisville/So. Indiana in fall time, like a pumpkin show and visit to the winery
A discussion after the Kathleen Hale incident on how I found out my info wasn't hidden, and what I did to make sure I was safer as a blogger.
Mostly this has been a super fun project, and I feel like it really pushed my creativity as a blogger to think differently and come up with other ideas than just reviewing books. But I am glad it's over, as my work schedule is picking up and I'm planning the move (oh yeah, I'm pretty for sure I'm moving to NYC after Christmas to pursue editing as a career), so it will be nice to cool down on blogging. And by cool down, I mean resume my regular pace rather than a post a day.
Thanks for playing, and I hope you stick around to see what comes next!
