Month in review: September 2020

Written by and published on .

These are the 30 days and 33 articles that made EMULSIVE in September 2020 – it feels so long ago now. As usual, you’ll find a recap of all the articles published, starting with the most popular 10 articles of the month in order of publication (as decided by you).

Before you scroll down, I have to apologise for the lateness of these recap posts in recent months. Things have gotten on top of me but I’ll be publishing a couple every month from now until we’re caught up.


Enjoy!
