Blogtober 2020

That’s another Blogtober completed for 2020! Read on for links to all my Blogtober posts, find out what posts were readers’ favourites and which bloggers joined me in the blogging challenge to produce a post daily throughout October.

Like last year, I decided not to write a new post every day, but to rework some of my older posts as it’s good for SEO and, as I have new readers joining me every year, I hope there will be enough to interest everyone.

So without further ado, these are links to all my posts that were written and/or shared during October.

I’m a third of the way into my 20 Books for Christmas Reading Challenge and am well on target for that.

  2. Updating old posts is a good idea. I started doing that… then haven’t done any for ages. Going back after a certain point is just so, so cringeworthy and I just want to delete it all!

    I’m wondering about changing the date to make them pop up as new posts, but I don’t know whether doing that on an old post would actually show up in the WP reader for people or not. No idea.

    I can’t quite believe it’s October either. Hope it’s a good month for you, Jo – enjoy the reading! xx
