Hello and welcome to the home of Word of the Week, a nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. The idea of the linky is to reflect back on your past week and share it with us. It’s great if you can sum it up in a word or phrase, hence giving us your Word of the Week. My word this week is blogtober and you can read more about that below.
I’m not totally strict on using just a word or phrase but please try to stick to the theme of summing up your week.
Since adding this link up party to a directory I’ve noticed a lot of posts, in particular, recipe posts, that do not fit in with the theme of this linky. I have made the decision to remove these posts from further link ups. So please don’t link up anything unless it includes a summary of your week or events in your life. Thank you for your understanding
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. I will read and comment on all posts and tweet them out for you. I also have a Pinterest board devoted to Word of the Week and I will add posts to Mix Please add the badge below to your post so that others may find us and join in. If you comment or tweet then please use the hashtag #WotW
Word of the Week is open from 6am on Friday Morning to 12 noon on Monday. Plenty of time to 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
I was struggling for a word to sum up this week so I’ve decided to go wtih Blogtober. For those of you unfamiliar with Blogtober it’s a challenge set every October to blog every day. You can follow prompts or just blog whatever you want. I’ve been doing it now for three years and although it can be challenging to blog every day, it can also be rewarding. It helps to get the creative juices flowing. It also helps to connect to other bloggers who are taking part. This year 3 Little Buttons is hosting the linky.
We also have a special Facebook group to share our posts and ideas, and egg each other on. It’s a great community.
This Blogtober So Far
We are currently 11 days in and I’ve managed to post 10 days so far. I started with my monthly Chronic Illness writing prompts post and I’ve also included last weeks Word of the Week as well as my Sunday Photos which I publish weekly anyway. I’ve also posted about Breast Cancer Awareness, Fashion, a poem, a give away and a couple of personal posts about The School Run and what I like to watch on television. I think I’ve done pretty well so far and I hope to continue for the rest of the month.
Yesterday was mental health awareness day, but I didn’t post about it. I’m struggling at the moment and although they say talking is good, and it really is, I couldn’t quite put my thoughts and feelings into words. I did absorb other bloggers post’s on the subject though. Sharing is good, it makes you feel less alone.
The Best Medicine
They say laughter is the best medicine and tonight I’m off to see the American comedy group, The Tenderloins, perform Cranjies Mc Basketball Comedy Tour. The Tenderloins are better known as The Impracticle Jokers from the Comedy Channel. We have all our favourite shows recorded on our TIVO box, from all 8 series of the show. It doesn’t matter how many times we watch them, they always make us laugh.
The Impractical Jokers are four friends that play the most ridiculously childish games and pranks and each week the loser has to do a mortifying challenge at the end. Totally stupid and simply hilarious. We all need to find our inner child sometimes don’t we?
So now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week.
