Did I Mention Love ??


My blogging audience have come to expect my authentic nature and real life honesty.  They are a smashing lot of educated peeps and I view them like my besties.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I never want to display or endorse an ad or attach a link that is not a good fit with me or my awesome readers.  I honour their trust in me, and I have no intention of ever comprising that trust.  Ever.  Taylor Swift ever, never.  That would be a complete violation of what I believe in.


I have been approached by many companies to use their product in exchange for payment and/or endorsement.  I turn down approximately 90% of advertising inquiries.  Nothing will land on my blog page if I don’t love it.






You may read this blog post about advertising on the bloggy.   It pretty much spills the beans.


If your company would like to send me a product and I don’t like it, I will not write a blog post or mention it on my site.   Sounds kinda mean, doesn’t it?  NOPE.  When the day comes that I write about something that I don’t love, then my blogging days will be over.  That is just yucky and I won’t be that girl.  I hope you truly understand my stance on that one.


To be authentic is the only way for me to be.

    Hi Lynne, I love your blog and want to totally copy it–hahaha, just kidding! I do want to start my own blog, but I’ve become “blogged” down trying to figure out whether to use Weebly (supposedly very easy for newbies) or WordPress (looks sooo complicated). I’ve been procrastinating for about six months!
    Do you have any advice for me?

    • Hi Joanne
      I would love to sell my theme some day, so copying it may be able to happen :)

      I would definitely go with wordpress. WordPress is number one in the world, and google loves it.

      It all depends what your blogging goals are. If you want to blog for fun and personal reasons, I would go for a free wordpress blog platform from

      If you want to blog for business reasons, and want to grow your audience, build traffic and monetize it, I would use It is definitely more complicated to do that in the beginning, but worth it in the long run.

      I couldn’t have done it alone. I did it with the EPIC help of Waylay Design. (no one pays me to say that, I just really really love them). They are a young couple by the name of Wayne and Selina and I think they are the best thaaaaaaang since sliced bread.

      Happy blogging !!!
      I LOVE it, and I hope you do too !

        Lynne, thanks so much for your advice. I honestly didn’t expect a reply, given what you’re going through right now. I’ll look into WordPress further.
        Sending hugs and prayers,

        • Ahhhh schmanks Joanne
          Truth is .. Blogging is a therapeutic distraction from what we are going through with cancer – so I’m happy to help.

          I have a big butt and I tell no lie. Okay- the big butt part was a lie – but the blogging distraction is the truth. LOL. XX

    Hi Lynne! We love your blog and wanted to let you know that we have just launched the first in a series of limited edition designs from our new collection at! We hope you might post about us.

    Please check us out and let us know if you have any questions and if you would like images.

    Thanks so much and until soon!

    • Sorry Laleh,
      I only post about companies that I truly have a working relationship with, or with products that I completely LOVE LOVE LOVE.

      I also don’t do sponsored blog posts for free. Blogging is waaaaaaay too much hard work to give it all away for free. I need to pay for my liquorice and chocolate habits.
