Spread The Love | September

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls: Welcome to 'Spread The Love', the new monthly post where I share with you a couple of the posts by fellow bloggers I've been loving over the past month. I though this would be an oh so lovely way to wrap up the month, as well as giving a selection of bloggers the recognition they truly deserve and introducing my readers to their blogs."

I know, I know, I’m rather pants at this series malarkey. I started ‘Spread The Love’ in July and completely forgot to do an August edition. This, ladies and gentlemen of the internet, is why you should always remember to note things down in your blogging planner.

But, this month I am back with a vengeance. This month I have really put a lot of effort into making sure that I’ve been reading tonnes and tonnes of blog posts (from new blog discoveries and old friends alike) and I have even more fabulous blog posts to share with you lovely lot. I’ve definitely gone more down the lifestyle/thought blogging route this month as it’s been those sorts of posts that have caught my eye, so hopefully that’ll float your boat.

Enough chat; let's get cracking.

Ring-a-Round a Rosey
"Snail Mail"

"I have always been a fan of sending letters to stay in contact with people, and I wanted to write a little bit about it :) When you're in college, there is almost nothing better than finding a letter waiting in your mailbox. Whether it's something you were expecting, or a letter from an old friend, it can always brighten the day."

This lovely blog is written by Madeline and I've been reading it for quite a while. Although I adore all of her posts, this one found a special place in my heart. I can definitely relate to her love of writing and receiving letters. There's something about letters that's just so much more special than contacting someone via email or social media. In fact, I know it would take so much longer, but I'd just love to do all my blogging-related emails via post instead. Things that are handwritten are so much more personal and lovely than a word-processed document could ever be, and that's why I adore writing letters so much. Everything Madeline said in this blog post was so true, so I'd definitely recommend popping over to her blog and having a read.

P.S: If any fellow snail-mail lovers fancy being my pen-pal, give me a shout! I'm always up for any excuse to write a letter.

"DIY Pinterest Wall"

"My tumblr DIY post went down really well, so I thought I would share my ideas for how to get a pinterest inspired wall too. I have also seen this on Tumblr too, but I think it is such a cool way to customise your bedroom without spending more than £5. I love how personal you can make it too, as you could always use pictures of friends and family rather than quotes like I used"

Alice's blog is a current favourite of mine and I rather loved this post of hers. I'm a huge fan of all things DIY, and a bit of a pinterest addict so it was right up my street. This idea looked so pretty and I just adore the photos Alice chose. It's such a buget-friendly simple little DIY project that would really make an eye-catching piece in your room, and I wouldn't be surprised if I end up giving it a go in the not so distant future, so thank you Alice for sharing this with us. Make sure you all head on over to Alice's lovely blog it deserves.

"Lessons I've Learnt From Writing A Blog"

"To be perfectly honest, I didn't really know what I wanted to achieve when I first started blogging. I knew that I wanted a creative outlet of sorts, but I definitely didn't think that people were actually going to read it! I didn't have a niche in mind and if you'd told me that, in just over a year's time, my blog would be up for two awards at a national level, I would have laughed in your face. Or more likely, looked away and denied the fact that even I knew what blogging was. I'm not knowledgeable on the subject, but blogging has taught me a few valuable things in fifteen months - and for that, I'm grateful."

Jessica's blog is another one I've been reading for a fair while and I'm rather a bit fan. She has such a beautiful way with words and I find all her posts to be lovely and relatable. This post of hers really struck a chord with me as Jessica discussed how blogging isn't all about the numbers but about having your own little slice of the internet that's yours to cherish; a place where you can ramble to your hearts content about whatever takes your fancy. I really think more bloggers should remember that statistics aren't everything because in my experience of reading blogs, as soon as you begin to focus on the numbers, the quality of your content really begins to drop. Please make sure you pop on over to Jessica's blog and have a nosey. I know you'll love it.
