Word of the Week Has a New Home

Hello and welcome to the new home of Word of the Week, a nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. You reflect back on the past week and sum it up in one word. Then share your word with us in a blog post, with as little or as much explanation as you like. 

This linky has been hosted for a long time over on Jocelyn’s blog The Reading Residence, but now she has handed over the reigns to me. I hope all the regular linkers will come and join me now.

There are not too many rules with this linky, just remember to read at least another couple of posts in the link up after adding your link. Do try to stick to the theme of summing your week up. I will read and comment on all posts and tweet them out for you. Please add the badge below to  your post so that others may find us and join in. 

If you are unfamiliar with the Word of the Week linky then please feel free to ask any questions. New linkers are always welcome, we love to hear what you have been up to in the past week. 

My word of the week this week is;

The word manic in purple

It’s been pretty manic around here this week. I’ve had my day in hospital, we’ve been decorating (which didn’t go well and had to be redone) and we have a visitor from Germany staying over, a friend of my eldest daughter.

Then I’ve had to deal with repair men and utility suppliers as well as a ton of blog work to do. I’m also swamped in videos and information that I have to get ready for the Stiff Person Syndrome Awareness Day next week. At times I’ve felt quite overwhelmed.

I’m hoping for a nice peaceful weekend for some relaxing and reflecting.

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

    Thank you for taking on hosting #WotW, it’s been one of my favourite linkies since I started my blog. That does sound like a manic week, hope the decorating is better this time and that you manage to find time over the weekend to rest and recover from it all x

      Thanks Louise, my first mistake was dating the start of the linky because it was supposed to coincide with the scheduling of my post, doh! Thankfully it’s set for the future now 🙂

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.
