The #SeptemberScopers Challenge

SeptemberScopers Challenge

This week is the start of a new challenge for me. I’ve decided to join other bloggers for the #SeptemberScopers Scope A Day Challenge to help build our audience on Periscope.

Today is the first day, so keep an eye out on my Instagram page to know when I’ll be going live. Also, feel free to follow the hashtag ( #SeptemberScopers) on social media to explore other sessions.

I’m so excited to be sharing my everyday with you all. And yes, I will warn you I’m a bit camera-shy so bear with me.

Talk to you soon!
