Links I Love: September

Y’all. It is officially fall. It may not be “technically” fall until September 22 but for all intents & purposes, fall starts after Labor Day, lets be real. In Philly, it’s been getting a little cooler (which means I’ve been itching to buy new tall brown boots…) & I recently got pumpkin flavored everything at the grocery store (no shame). Because I’m clearly obsessed with this season, this month’s Links I Love are all about autumn. Check out all the awesome bloggers below!

My 5 Favorite Apps for Blogging

For the most part, blogging is really fun. I personally don’t blog full time (I have a regular old 9-to-5 job that I absolutely love) & I blog on the side as a hobby. Even though it’s a hobby, I do spend a significant amount of time writing, taking pictures, posting on social media, etc. etc. And like I said, most of the time being a blogger is really fun, but sometimes it’s really hard work. (I can’t even imagine what it’s like to be a full-time blogger–kudos to you guys).

My friend/fellow blogger Sam (check her out at F-perfection.com!) and I have this joke that bloggers never sleep. Every time we’re brainstorming new posts or thinking of yet another Instagram caption, we say “well, bloggers never sleep.” Being a blogger is about sharing your life with your readers, and to some extent, it’s always in the back of your mind. I can’t tell you how many notes I have on my phone about blog post ideas or how many lattes have gotten cold because I have to get the perfect picture (ugh I know, I hate that I get caught up in “do it for the Insta,” too). That said, I’ve tried to strike a balance between just living and putting more effort into blogging. It’s always a process.

Thankfully for all us bloggers out there, there are lots of apps/tools that make this whole “being a blogger” thing easier so our entire life isn’t consumed by blank WordPress templates & the never-ending blackhole of Pinterest (unless you want that, then you do you). Here are some of my favorite apps that making blogging a little easier.

Links I Love: July

Hi there! I’m trying a new thing called Links I Love. The more I get into the blogging world, the more cool bloggers I meet. I absolutely love to see what other people are talking about, plus it’s always fun to support other writers like me. I’ve seen other bloggers do weekly/monthly link roundups so I wanted to give it a shot! Here are some links I’m loving this month, broken down by category. Check them out!
