This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

When your husband surprised you with a big bouquet of flowers and your first thoughts is - quick let me put on a pretty dress and take a photo of me holding it!⠀
(The only problem with that - you look tired on photos hence me hiding behind this bouquet.)⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀
⠀
This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

Blog Traffic | November 2017

November was a slow month, but that ok. We are nearly at the end of 2017. Here is my November 2017 blog traffic report and how I achieved my 24,000 page views.

I almost wasn’t going to do a November 2017 blog traffic report, as it was a Deja vu of October blog traffic report. But I know when I compare my stats in a year time, I would kick myself for not recording it. Anyway, I know you guys always enjoy reading this kind of report anyway. So let get on with it.

My top 5 most popular posts in November:

I based it this month on comments count and how many comments each post has received over the past month. This confirmed to me that you guys all are enjoying my posts, and is willing to leave comments. Thank you, this makes me really happy as you guys seem to really enjoy reading what I have written – so I will keep doing what I’ve been doing.

How did people find my Blog?

My top 3 results came largely from Stumbleupon, Pinterest and Twitter:

Stumbleupon (SU):

SU is just a steady source of traffic for me and it doesn’t look like it slowing down anytime soon. It most defiantly helps in keeping my traffic up.

If you haven’t read my SU post, then read it today.

Pinterest:

Pinterest throughout the last part of the year went off like a firework. I always got an amazing result from It, but this time it really took off. This confirmed to me that it worthwhile investing time and energy to Pinterest. So why did it shoot off like a firework rocket?

Well as always I added all my blog pictures to appropriate boards and to Pinterest groups. I re-pinned various other images. Joined in with Pinterest Facebook groups and start to use it as a personal account, rather than a business one. What I mean by that I always hear from an expert how to use Pinterest like a business and only pinned images from your site, my advice is screw that and use it a personal fun account and pin anything you like. And as always I added more ‘pinnable’ images at the end of my posts.

I also toward the end of September made the investment to join Tailwind. Keep hearing how important it is to schedule your pins and how it can explode your traffic. So I signed up to see for myself. I will be doing a more in-depth blog post on Tailwind soon, but yeah so far so good. A worthwhile investment.

Here is a tutorial I wrote on how to increase traffic to Pinterest: My 5 Best Pinterest Advice

Twitter:

I will admit unexpected surprise. I wasn’t expecting such a raise from Twitter. I think it did help that new people found my blog from Twitter. I also found that these new people were retweeting my blog links tweets, my mentions were filled with people tweeting both my old and new blog posts. This was amazing and I didn’t expect such lovely attention.  One more thing I did do was post more on twitter and have a chat with people. It well worth turning your attention to Twitter and just chatting with people.

What didn’t work in November:

Only my Referral as I got hit by spam bots! It seriously does fudge up my page views. However, I also started to use Statcounter throughout November. That been a big benefit to see where and how people are finding my site. It a little more details than Google Analytics. It helps me block those damn spam bots.

And that was my November 2017 blog traffic report. It was a bloody brilliant month and a big thank you so much for supporting me. It means the universe to me that my blog is doing so well and I couldn’t have done it with you – Thank you so much, everyone.

    I really enjoyed reading this. I haven’t analized my blog like this yet. I need to look into it. I haven’t used Stumbleupon very much yet. It is still so new to me. I need to learn more about it. Thanks for sharing!
