Survey and Thorntons Chocolate Give Away

I need your help! 

But I’m not asking you to give it to me for free. I have a lovely little gift to give away to one lucky participant in my little blog reader survey. It’s so short it literally takes just a couple of minutes to complete. Then if you put your e-mail at the end I’ll enter you into my prize draw.

I am trying to learn more about people who read blogs, why do they read them, what are they looking for in a blog post and what makes them come back again. I want to create a blog reader persona and you can help me, even if you don’t really have much interest in blogs there must be something that brought you here today. It doesn’t matter if you read hundreds of blogs a day, or just one a month, I really want to hear from you. The questions are simple and multiple choice, so you just have to tick a box or boxes. And like I said, it really won’t take up much of your precious time.

Now what am I giving away as a prize?

How about some chocolates from Thorntons?

Thorntons are currently promoting their Autumn Collection of chocolate, toffee and fudge, perfect for when the nights start to draw in.

How about a lovely box of chocolate covered toffees. First gooey then chewy!

Or Maybe you are nuts about nuts and would prefer this lovely box of nuts and praline collection?

Can’t make up your mind? How about a classic collection where you can choose from Creamy fudge to Honeycomb, Coffee Truffle to Turkish Delight. Something for all tastes in this delicious selection.
Can’t decide? How about a perfect Autumn Bundle containing no less than Ten lovely selections to suit everyone’s taste.
Have I tempted your taste buds? Feel free to click through and take a look at what’s on offer but don’t forget to go through Top Cashback first. All links are my affiliate links but you can just visit the main Thorntons site if you want to browse through yourself.
So my dear chocolate (or toffee) lovers, this survey is very important to me but I know you are all really busy. That’s why I’m offering a box of Thorntons chocolates in return for your time in answering my questions. 
Strike that!! I’m going to be giving one lucky participant TWO boxes of Thorntons Chocolates! All you have to do is fill in my survey form below and enter your e-mail at the end for your entry. E-mail addresses will not be collected, they are purely for identification for the give away, so please don’t forget to fill it in if you want to enter.
 Please see details at end of post for how to enter. Prize draw ends 27th October.


A few Terms and Conditions:

  • UK Only (sorry)
  • Competition closes when survey ends on 27th October 2017
  • Prize is 2 boxes of Thorntons Chocolates
  • Prize may differ from items shown but will be of the same value
  • One winner will be chosen at random
  • Winner will be chosen by e-mail address left on survey form
  • E-mail addresses will be collected for competition purposes only, if you don’t leave your e-mail I cannot accept your entry but you can still fill in the survey form.
Remember, I can’t choose a winner unless you have left your e-mail address for identification. E-mails will not be collected for any other purpose.

Sorry, I’ve had to close the survey early, all entries so far are received and ready for the draw on the 27th. If you have only just arrived here and not yet entered then please feel free to leave a comment saying you wish to be entered. I can then rip your e-mail from the comment and no-one else will see it. You will need to comment and say you wish to enter so I can take your e-mail though as although I can see your e-mail it would be unfair for me to take it without your wish. All e-mails will be used for competition entry only.

If you did wish to subscribe to my blog you can do so using the bar at the top of the page or the section in the sidebar.

    I said the exact same as Northumberland Mum re how I found your blog! My number one reasons for reading blogs didn't appear in the first question – it's the personal stories I like best and why I come back here x

    Hi Anne, I've just brushed myself down from my mini tantrum. I'm rather partial to a nice chocolate, toffee and caramel centres being my favs. You can imagine the tears if they were in the giveaway! I did the survey with a pouty lip. It will be interesting to see what the survey tells you.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

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.
