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 Election 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 – Election
If you missed the election this week then you must have been hiding in a cave (tempting) Or living in a far off country, but even then I bet it was on your news!
By the time this post is published the results will be known. I do believe this is the most important election we have ever had Or at least one of the most important.
All over Social Media there has been Election Propaganda, truths, lies, memes, (some really awful memes.) People have argued, pushed their opinions, argued some more and maybe even changed their minds on some occasions.
I’ve bitten my tongue so much it’s swollen!
I’ve also been involved in some discussions that have not turned out too badly. Yes, we may have had opposing views but it was interesting to discuss them without abuse or name calling, or completely dismantling each other’s beliefs.
So, the main thing this election has taught me is something I already knew. People are all different, in many ways. We look different, we feel differently and we all have different things affecting our lives. We surround ourselves mostly with people who are most like us, but even those are different.
So, whatever this election has brought, it will be good news for some and bad news for others. It can’t be any different. I just only hope that everyone took the opportunity to vote so that the results are the representation of the majority of the population.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week.
