Blog Post Round Up | October 2021

And it’s November. I know I always say something similar, but I can’t believe that it’s already a new month AND that we’re just two months away from the new year. From 2022! It still feels like I’m in 2020 sometimes.

October is the month that I came back to blogging including reading all of your wonderful posts after a two month hiatus. In addition to some great reading recommendation lists for spooky season there were some interesting discussion posts. There were also some really interesting (and exciting) news article that are linked at the end.

I’m sorry if I missed anyone’s post that they would love shared. It’s hard to follow so many sites and the posts that get published. If you want to share a post or a news article, please link it in a comment!
