Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Blog Traffic | September 2017

Posted on

Now we fully in the autumn season and nearing the end of the year.  Here is my September 2017 blog traffic report and how I achieved my 26,000 page views.

September 2017 blog traffic report

Ok so I saw a little growth throughout September, but my traffic is still going up and still growing. Just not as fast as it did earlier this year. But it all good and at least it not on a downward spiral.

My top 5 most popular posts from September:

I would normally base this list on how much each engagement it has received through various technique: social media, organic searches, comments etc. But this time I based it on how each post exploded on Pinterest. The 4 Autumn books blog post went mental as in one day I got 2,000 hits! How crazy is that? Just from Pinterest. As you will see down below Pinterest without a doubt helped my traffic throughout September.

How did people find my Blog?

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

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 on keeping my traffic up.

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

Pinterest:

Pinterest throughout September 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.

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

 Organic Traffic:

My organic searches are now a steady source of traffic.  I had a few people who said they found me through various Google searches, this makes me happy as I’m having new readers.

Now if this is something you would like to achieve for your blog, then I have written the ultimate SEO & blogging guide. It a huge resource of everything that will help you.

 

What didn’t work in September:

You know what, I can’t think of anything as throughout September everything seems to be working very well. Everything seems to be on an upward trend so I have no complaint about anything as It was all good!

And that was my September 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 find it so interesting that so many of your views came from Pinterest! I find I can’t seem to get any from Pinterest, so maybe I need to look at your post on improving this. Fingers crossed you continue to grow throughout October!

    Congrats on the views! I aspire to be there one day with my blog. It’s still fairly new but getting off to a good start. I hear alot of bloggers talk about Pinterest but not much about StumbleUpon. I will have to look into this further as well. Thanks for sharing!
