I don’t normally do ’round ups’ of each month like some bloggers do when they set themselves goals for the month. I do love reading them but I can never commit myself to setting goals for a month! Instead I thought i’d summarise September for you, and more so myself because it’s been a bloody good month for me.
The first highlight, in terms of blogging, was that I got my highest paid sponsored blog post ever. For me, the finance side of blogging is an added bonus of something I do purely out of love. It’s quite mad that i’m able to earn money, something I never thought i’d do. September has also been the month of the most sponsored posts i’ve done in one month as well as quite a few upcoming opportunities landing in my inbox. I’m forever thankful of this platform I have and I never want to stop showcasing my writing ability and my photography!
This month I also got a job! I touched on this a little bit in What’s In My Work Makeup Bag? but this has probably been the biggest achievement in a while. After deciding I wasn’t going to go back to college to continue my studies in creative media at level 5 I needed to get a job because i’d have no money. I’d been applying for jobs for what felt like forever (maybe 4 months) and I think I had 2 interviews in that time. Being rejected from so many jobs and not hearing back from the 100+ I applied for really sh*t on my mood. It got me down mentally and I honestly didn’t think i’d get a job. Luckily right at the end of August/start of September I had an interview for 2 different companies, got both jobs and that seriously lifted my mood but also my anxiety. I accepted the job which I felt like i’d enjoy more and I made the right decision. I seem to be fitting in well, picking up on how to do everything and am genuinely enjoying it.
This month, and most of the summer, i’ve been playing around with a new website for creating graphics and presentations. Some lovely people at Visme asked if i’d like to try out their website for 3 months on a premium upgraded account in return for a review of it on my blog if I enjoyed using the site. Since i’m blogging about it, i’ve been enjoying it and finding it useful for creating graphic pictures for quotes like this and this. You can get a free account but upgrading gets you things like more storage and downloading files in different formats. If you’re someone big in the blogging graphic game then it’s worth checking out!
