September Wrap-Up


Hello everybody!! Hope you are all doing well, and are keeping safe! I can’t believe another month is over and we are starting to get into the Fall months! Halloween is just around the corner πŸ™‚

It has been crazy this month (as always!) with starting my new job and getting into the swing of that, as well as starting my next year at Uni! As some of you may know, I am completing a degree in Arts and Humanities specialising in English and Novels, through the Open University. This degree will take me six years in total to complete, and I am officially half way through by starting Year Three.

Blog Site…

Last month, I felt super lucky to have gained a load of views on my blog (445). This month, I have reached 325! This is still a HUGE achievement for me, as I have been setting a goal of reaching 200 a month.

Even though the recent pandemic has been really hard, as I imagine it has been for you too, I was lucky to have the extra time and energy to focus on re-starting my blog after 7 months off.

Top 10 Country views…

I was really fascinated with the Country Blog Views last month, that I have decided to add them in this month again too! Let me know whether your country made the Top 10!

This month, my Top 10 Country Views were;

  1. United Kingdom
  2. United States
  3. Canada
  4. Finland
  5. India
  6. France
  7. Singapore
  8. Portugal
  9. Croatia
  10. South Africa


This month I read the following books;

  • The Custom of The Country by Edith Wharton
  • One Winters Night by Kiley Dunbar
