#Blogtober18, why we are doing it, and a bit about me

October 1, 2018


Happy October everyone! October is always very welcome in the Button house. We can now (just about) start to relax after the busy summer months at work are starting to fade into the distance. The next school year has started, although, perhaps that’s another story as it’s not been quite as smooth sailing as I would have hoped. And, it’s cosy jumper and boots weather all round… need I say more. The whole house feels like it’s just done a huge sigh of relief. Now for a bit of fun I think.  




What is #Blogtober18

You may have noticed something called #Blogtober flashing up across your social media networks every October. #Blogtober is a lovely initiative by Mandi over at Big Family Organised Chaos where bloggers join in with a month of blogging every day or thereabouts. There is a set topic for each day of October and you will typically be able to find a whole host of posts appearing under the hashtag #Blogtober18. 



Look out for our #Blogtober posts!

Last year I enjoyed dipping in and out of lots of #blogtober posts and coming across plenty of bloggers, old and new, that I hadn’t seen before. It looked like fun so this year, I’ve decided to join in. The biggest appeal being that it’s going to be a writing challenge to blog about set topics each day, when I tend to mostly write from the gut, as and when the writing bug catches me. We’ll see how it goes.



A bit about me

Just in case you’ve found us through #blogtober18 for the first time, here’s a little bit about me.


This is us, the 3 Little Buttons.





We are rarely in a (decent) photo altogether as usually 1 of us is behind the camera. I really need to invest in a tripod thingy don’t it?


We live in the thick of it in London, and whilst you’ll often find me daydreaming about making the great escape to the countryside, in truth, I do love the big city really. I work full time, but not as a professional blogger. The Buttons blog is written for fun and purely out of a passion for writing and sharing our experiences with other parents. This year we are finalists in the BritMums Brilliance in Blogging Awards for the Family and Lifestyle Category – that’s definitely one of my blogging highlights of… well… forever!


If you are a blogger and fancy joining in with #Blogtober this year, it’s not too late. Simply pop over via the badge below to join in the fun.


Tomorrow is all about boobs! See you then.

    Welcome to Blogtober18! I live out in the countryside, and whilst it is better for the children that the only neighbours we have are horses, I must admit that sometimes it would be nice to live in the city, especially where days out and events are concerned! Looking forward to finding out more during the month

  7. Welcome to Blogtober, I look forward to getting to know more about you throughout the month 🙂
