5 blog posts I’ve loved this Blogtober

I’ve really enjoyed joining in with Blogtober this year.

The challenge of posting every day for a month has been great for pushing me to write more.  And I’ve really loved discovering new blogs to read and bloggers to learn a bit more about.

There’s been a real mix of bloggers from all sorts of niches that I’ve found in the last month, and it’s been great to read a mix of different types of blog posts.

Here are 5 blog posts that I’ve really enjoyed reading this Blogtober:


1. How I saved over £5000 in just one year

This post from Tea and cake for the soul is a really informative read.

Jo talks about all the different things she did and changes she made to save a huge amount of money.  I love how she breaks it down and reports how much she saved on each particular change that she made.

If you’re looking to save some money then there are bound to be a few things on Jo’s list that you can try.


2. Rainy day activities

I really enjoyed this post from Ashley at stumbling through wonderland.

She’s given some great ideas for activities and things to do with children on rainy days.  I especially like the idea of reading books together and then doing some crafts that relate to the books.

What I particularly like about Ashley’s post though is that she’s also listed some ideas for things you can do on rainy days when you’re child-free.


3. My favourite slow cooker recipes

I absolutely love my slow cooker.

We’ve been using ours once a week for the last few weeks to cook a whole chicken, and then to make stock afterwards.

This post from Kim at life as Kim has got me inspired to try some new recipes in the slow cooker.  The lazy chicken curry in particular looks really good, and so easy to throw together!


4. Cheat’s Paella

The colder weather has obviously made me hungry because I’ve really loved reading recipe posts during Blogtober!

This cheat’s paella from the spoonie mummy is right up my street.

It sounds so easy to put together, but still full of flavour.  Perfect for warming up on chilly evenings.


5. Decorating firework biscuits with Emmy

I loved everything about this post from Laura at Em and me.

The idea of decorating biscuits is so simple, but so much fun for little ones.  And I love the fact that Laura mentions the skills that children can learn and practice through the activity.
