October Roundup and November Bucket List

Wow didn’t October fly by! I have now been back to work 4 weeks and it’s gone by so quickly. We are now into a little routine so we all get to our places on time in the mornings! Here you can read all about our back to work routine.

Also if you want to catch up on last months roundup post you can do so.


October Roundup

It’s strange as I have had a lesser amount of blogging time this month but my stats have rocketed! I have had some amazing competitions running and reviewed lots of fabulous things. Why not have a scroll back through and see what we have been up to?

I also have my gift guides out for Christmas. I have my women’s and babies & kids guides to help you with present ideas.

Not to long until Christmas now! Eek! I finished up baby girls Christmas presents before I started back at work. This Christmas is very special as it’s her first.

My favourite post

My favourite post of the month was 10 Months Have Passed – My Return to Work Returning to work was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. A few weeks before my actual return I was having panics about leaving baby girl. Now we are back into the swing of things it’s a lot easier.

Now to cross out what I have achieved for October:

~ Aim to keep on building my page views – Running competitions has helped bring new readers to my blog

~ Aim to increase my Subscriber email list I have had over 100 sign up’s to my newsletter for October. I’m so pleased! My weekly blog competition email is very popular with all my fabulous subscribers. If any bloggers would like to have their competitions included in my newsletter that goes out on Wednesdays. Please email me the link at rachel@rachelbustin.com
