September was another busy. Both of my kids went back to school after the long 3 month summer break. It's always a bit of a struggle to get back into routine after so long. I am not liking my 7am wake up call every morning that's for sure! Been testing how many times I can hit snooze before it means we're in panic mode to get us out the door on time 🤦

September was also my birthday month. I am now 41 years young. Unfortunately my health problems continue to cause trouble... including on my birthday. I just can't catch a break. 

I do have good news to share though. I hit a new PB for views to this site. In September I had 47,138 views 🥳🥳🥳 My previous PB was set in July this year when I hit 44,880. I am so happy with the growth of this site over this year and feel motivated to keep improving it. Thank you to all of you that read my posts here 💖 Please leave a comment with any suggestions of topics you'd like me to cover.

The Blog Audit Challenge 2021

The September Challenges were focused on readability.

I already do all the things listed in the tasks for September but I am going through older posts to make sure they are optimised for readability too.

The Social Media Audit Challenge

For this challenge I'm concentrating on social media. The September focus was on YouTube.

My YouTube channel is already set up with my branding and this year I have been getting into the habit of scheduling my videos in advance to make sure they publish every Tuesday. 

I also already embed my videos in my blog posts. What I have been working on most is sharing my videos on my social media platforms. I've not been great about doing this in the past but I've been improving over this last month and have seen a small increase in subscribers to my channel. 

The Clock Reading Challenge

I created the Clock Reading Challenge as I thought it would be fun and not too difficult to complete.

  1. All of your reading challenges are so much fun! Do you track them on StoryGraph at all? I'd love to add them to my profile for next year. They're really creative. I'm sorry your health hasn't been your friend, but I hope you still had a nice birthday!
