It’s hard to believe it’s already the second week of October! I feel like this month always goes by super quickly, not to mention that it’s been nothing short of c-r-a-z-y for me (in the best way). Anyways, here’s a roundup of all the links I’ve been loving from my fellow bloggers. Show these ladies some love.
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!

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.
