Do you see what I did there? Oh yes, hilarious. See, it’s newly November. NEWvember. Oh my, the hilarity. I know, I know, you are struggling not to roll on the floor in floods of tears. Probably the best joke you’ll hear today, right? Hey, probably the best joke you’ll hear all month! Sometimes I wonder why I never began my professional comedy career. A wasted talent, I tell you.
So, moving on, and forgetting that ever happened, the new month means:
a) the end of Blogtoberfest, and the challenge to blog every single day. It’s often been tricky to find the time, but if anything this challenge gave me more ideas for posts and projects than a normal month, and definitely introduced me to some other brilliant bloggers. I have particularly loved seeing what littlewhitedove and whattaylormade managed to blog about in their 31 days, but am finding that I’m reading increasingly more through WordPress Reader than my RSS feed, which means non-WordPress bloggers have been somewhat neglected recently!
b) another awesome Calendar of the Month from Scout Creative. I am gutted to have been away from my printer this week because this is my favourite since I signed up – a nuclear charging station and calendar all in one! What more could a girl need?
c) the giveaway ended! This was my first time ever hosting a giveaway and it turned out to be far simpler than expected… while the giveaway announcement got a few likes and a handful of new followers (according to my stats, anyway) it only generated two actual entrants! And so, without further ado, the winners of the giveaway are officially the super creative Pillows a-la-mode and the mysterious buntyw – drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your postal addresses if you’d like to claim your prizes!
d) The beginning of Movember, which seems to become more and more popular each year – in Edinburgh, at least.
Sadly Thankfully my female face isn’t inclined to sport the facial hair, but I look forward to seeing some cool tache’s about town and will gladly sponsor anyone taking on the hairy challenge for such a good cause!
