It’s that time of year again! No…not Christmas! The time when those who love everything magic and paranormal rejoice! (or cackle as we hop onto our broom…) Trick or Treat!
It also means we’re twice as busy brewing up potions in our cauldrons, and preparing treats—
witch which is why I tricked you by posting my weekly wrap up a day late. My apologizes.
Stick around—I’ll give you a treat! I’ve got a lot of events coming up in the next few weeks that you don’t want to miss!
Witch which is why my weekly wrap will be on hiatus for a few weeks since I have other fun blog stuff that will give you the chance to win gift cards, books, and have fun.
Not Everyone in My House Loves Halloween
But before I get to that, I wanted to talk about my love of Halloween! There’s just something so fun about dressing up and acting like a kid again. Plus I believe Halloween, and trick or treating, is a great way to bring your neighborhood together.
But there is someone who hates Halloween. Well, I guess he might enjoy this event a little since he gets to greet all kinds of ghosts and goblins but there is one thing he hates—dressing up in costumes or sweaters.
You guessed it, my writing partner. Scruff. The proof is in the pudding—or the picture below.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think Scruff is only thinking of one. Revenge.
But, oh my goodness, isn’t he adorable?
The pig costume on the right is the one the girls choose for him this year. From Scruff’s expression, this just may be the last straw for him.
Would You Like a Treat?
Here’s some awesome resources for you to check out from this week, and I’ll let you know what’s coming up in the next few weeks.

Put Some Magic in Your Marketing and Design
Next we’ve got an article from HubSpot. It’s a bit along the same lines of website and design, but some wonderful examples of those, and marketing your product.

Casi McLean’s ABA Haunted Halloween Hop will start off first on October 24th.
And then the Snarkology Halloween Hop begins on October 25th.
Both run through Halloween, so you’ll have plenty of time to visit all the blogs and enter to win all kinds of prizes!
