So on a whim a few weeks ago (partly down to September putting me in a spooky mood and partly me knowing I was finishing work for maternity leave a couple of weeks into October and wanting to make sure I had a lot of blogging to do to occupy my time) I decided this year we were going to take part in Blogtober in our own way. The aim wasn’t necessarily to post every single day of the month, however with the amount of blog post ideas we’ve got lined up, we might end up doing just that! We aren’t hosting our own Blogtober theme but I thought it’d be good to share what we’ll be posting about anyway, just in case anyone was looking for inspiration. Not all of these are our original ideas but we are crediting other bloggers and other Blogtober prompt lists throughout! If you’d like to use any of our ideas, please share your posts with us and link back to us in the post 🙂

7th October: Book Line Poetry
A while back, I saw Jemma’s blog post where she created songs from taking specific lines from a book. I loved the idea and made a few myself, but never shared them. Since they were all unintentionally eerie in some way, I decided it was time to post them! If you’d like to take part, the instructions are in Jemma’s post above.
