Hello and welcome

This is the first post on Raisie Bay.
Well, actually it isn't because I've edited it. When I started this blog I was thinking of a very different direction to the one I ended up taking. So The first post was completely irrelevant  so was the title, and the content for the first six months or so.

I suppose I could have started again from scratch, but what's the point. I had the blog I just needed to tweak it to what I really wanted.

So what is Raisie Bay about now? Well, basically it's about me and my family, our interests our life, the things we get up to. Also, it's about the reviews that I do, it was quite obvious from the start that I would be reviewing stuff because that's what I've been doing for many years. Although, this is the first time I've been reviewing on my own blog, I became a little fed up of being paid 2p a time whenever someone liked my review on previous sites.

I'm a mum of 5, 2 adults and 3 little ones, so plenty of parenting experience. The first two where born in my first marriage and the little ones where a late addition. I always say I had them in my forties but actually Star was born a couple of months before my 40th birthday. Boo was born when I was 41 and Little Man was a surprise late edition at almost 45.

I've been asked about the name Raisie Bay, well it's partly my old name before I was married. I wanted something that didn't quite sound like a name though so I made a few alterations. Raisie has a couple of changed letters otherwise it would be the second part of my first name. Bay is the first half of my previous second name. So there you are, clear as mud :-)

So have you clicked follow yet? I won't get very far talking to myself ;-)

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay



Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
