Honesty,its such a dirty word

I have had a poorly baby with a sore throat so I have spent a lot of time on my laptop reading and feeding.

What have I been reading? Blog posts on the evils of Give Aways!

This has made me a bit sad as I will be soon offering my very first giveaway and I am so excited!

I frequently link to pretty things I have found-I don't get paid-I do it to ''show and tell''!

When I was offered a item to giveaway on my blog I was so taken aback and thrilled I was actually moved to tears! I felt so proud! And I was delighted to accept!

I am daily honoured that anyone bothers to read my little stories and if my tutorials are any help to anyone it is an absolute pleasure.

However,I would not ever ever recommend something I didn't like.
I am old school,if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all!

So please dear listeners,don't judge me for my ''giveaway'' I have not ''sold out'' I just want you to have a chance to have something lovely too.

  1. I, for one, can't wait to see what it is! I hope your little one starts feeling better. We've had 2 down (today they seem to be on the mend) and now I've come down with it. Such is the life of a mum!

  2. Thank you Cindy!
    It is hot and sticky which makes it feel worse to have colds.

    Thanks,as always,for your support.

  3. You know, I can see both sides of the giveaway debate, but in general I think they are tons of fun. There is only one blog that I can think of that I quit reading because it became one "advertisement" after another instead of content. Most bloggers seem to balance it nicely. I am delighted for you, however! Your blog is entertaining, inspiring, and informative! If the chance to take it further with sponsors/giveaways or whatever comes along, I am sure you will handle it with class!

  4. I guess I read very few blogs,I would love to read more but time doesn't allow it,so I am not really up with sponsorship and such.
    I very much doubt I am about to be flooded with offers to giveaway products but I remain very proud to able to do my first with a product I adore!

    Thank you for your lovely comments Margaret,your warmth always comes across and I very much appreciate it.

  5. How exciting! What wonderful news! (This is the first I've been on the computer after two full weeks of relatives.)

  6. Thank you Johanna,I am unbelievably excited and cannot wait to get started!
    Two weeks of relly's ? Goodness,you deserve a cup of tea and a foot rub.

  7. I'm in the same boat! Will be doing my first giveaway (and am super excited about it) but reading things about how giveaways are "so over." Boo to them! I still enter giveaways (the ones I actually have a chance of winning) and if your giveaway is from the same company as mine, it's a pleasure to do! :)

  8. Exactly!
    My blog is a bit of fun,thats all!

    Thanks for your support AND if it is the same company are they not super?
