A round-up of September is not going to feature much this month as I had a little blip and didn’t do as much as I had wanted to on this blog. I actually forgot about doing a round-up post at all until today! lol But I wanted to wrap up the month by showing you which posts were the most popular as well as give anyone who hasn’t seen some of my previous posts the chance to catch up.
There were three top posts this month but by far the most popular is one I put out recently which was for a classic book with a feline twist.
Romeow & Juliet is a fun picture book for any ages based on the classic play ‘Romeo & Juliet’, however the entire book features cats rather than humans and the illustrations are simply stunning! The review has had a lot of shares on the web so well worth looking at if you have time.
The second most popular blog post was my little post about my return after taking a break from the blog called Hello…Anyone Miss Me? Oddly my personal post about how I’d been feeling down about my blog and things in general had a lot of views and even shares. I felt better after having a chat with several people from posting that post and it goes to prove that sharing really is important and helps if you’re ever depressed.
The third most popular posts were both a book haul post and another review. The review is for Yuki Means Happiness a book I found interesting and much darker than it’s blurb or cover would have you believe! Well worth checking out if you like modern cultural books.
My book haul posts have been doing better than expected recently with around the same number of views for both Walker Books September’s book haul post and a new Bookbridgr one featuring those animal inspired classics. Look out for another book haul post from Walker Books about to come up – this month with new Christmas books and Christmas inspired gifts! 😀
I’d also like to share this month’s poetry which got quite a few views. I’m afraid I only wrote two poems this month and haven’t had much time or inspiration to write more but hopefully that will change especially with Christmas and Halloween inspiring some fun poetry. There were two serious poems however, one light and one dark. The lighthearted poem I do hope you will enjoy, even if it’s just for the picture of a zonkey (check it out!), is Different Is Fine.
As usual the dark poetry got more views with Why Did You? featuring a particularly difficult subject that is still a serious problem in our world but that’s considered a little taboo to even talk about.
October’s going to be a far busier month and I have a lot of exciting things to share with you. I have a new book haul post to share with you this week as well as of course plenty of books I have yet to share from last month’s set. I’ve decided to try and do something for Halloween at the end of the month, even if it’s as little as a spooky poem.
As well as poetry and book reviews I hope to share an article or two this month. I have an article that’s been bugging me, sitting in my drafts for ages and I just need to read back through it and give it a bit of editing before it’s done.
Apart from all that I hope to just enjoy getting to know you guys more and visiting as many of you as I can. I’m not able to constantly be online and visiting blogs is something I can only do every few days rather than everyday, as I’m just too swamped with everything in my offline life at the moment. The run up to Christmastime is a busy one for me and the next few months look like they’ll be busy for me although I hope you’ll enjoy what I do manage to post out 🙂
I hope you’ll all want to keep reading this blog and the content I put out. You are the reason I keep enjoying blogging. I might still blog if I had no audience but it’s so much more rewarding to know others are reading.
So a big thank you to you all for following this blog and I hope you have a great October!
