Happy October Storytellers!
This is coming at you later than usual, because today has been completely BANANAS! I took the day off from work yesterday and I came back to what almost resembled the scene from community when Daniel Glover’s character walks in and the room is burning:
Pretty much that was me this morning. BUT I’m at lunch and writing this intro like the wind because I always save these for last! September was a chaotic and stressful thirty days, but it was filled with some exciting moments like going self hosted and getting this shiny new layout and graphics! I am honestly still swooning at it all.
One of the cool things about September was the chance to get to prep for Bookending Autumn (WHICH STARTS TODAY!) with our amazing hosts! Formerly known as blogoween, Bookending Autumn is a month long event where each day is a new prompt that participants can replicate! Our goal is to bring the bookish community closer together and meet new friends through our favorite medium–blogging! If you are interested and want to know more check out my announcement post here: Bookending Autumn: Announcement. There you will find all the glorious details as well as the link to sign up!
