My Word of the Week

a zebra in a golden field and the word 'Awareness' in bold

This week my word of the week is Awareness. We had our yearly awareness day for Stiff Person Syndrome on Wednesday 24th October. I had worked really hard making two videos and 20 images complete with facts about Stiff Person Syndrome. 

On the day I tweeted from the Stiff Person Syndrome account all day and shared my videos. We had quite a few new people find our Facebook group which is good. Support is vital when you have a condition that hardly no-one has ever heard of.

Here is one of the awareness videos I edited.

Now, it’s over to you, come and tell us how your week has been.

    Raising awareness is such an important thing to do. Glad you had a few new people find your Facebook group. Being able to find other people that understand what you’re experiencing and find that online support makes a huge difference. The beauty of the Internet is that ability to bring together people from different places and different walks of life and to help them know they are not alone. #WotW

    Love the video, very informative. Raising awareness about rare conditions is very important, and I think you are doing a great job. Facebook support groups can be very helpful as I’ve recently found out 🙂

    It sounds like the awareness campaign has been successful if people are finding your facebook group. Worth all the time your group has put into it. Fingers crossed it reaches more people that could do with your support.

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.
