I realised a few weeks ago that I haven’t done a newsie in about 4 months so I thought I’d get back onto those. I’m going to do my utmost to make sure I keep these as a monthly thing and not fall behind like I did. So, what’s been going on in February?
1. I’m Still Writing Once A Week
Remember that whole plan to only write once a fortnight? Yeah, that lasted about a month! I had so much to write – topical posts, reviews to do, people who wanted to work with me – I simply couldn’t afford to do any less! It’s good though, because I’ve juggled my schedule in a big way so I now write, edit and schedule my posts Tuesday-Thursday, then it’s all ready to go live on the Friday.
2. I Am Now A Lovehoney Affiliate!
Twisties I am so, so honoured to have been accepted to become a Lovehoney affiliate! I’ve already updated some links but I still have plenty more to do, I’ve also – finally – gotten around to making a list of all of our toys so I will be bringng you reviews on those – with links of course so you can find them and buy them! I will be bringing you Lovehoney discount codes (when I have them) on my ‘Browse My Lovehoney Deals‘ page, I’ll also be sharing more limited time offers on Facebook.
3. I Got Sent My First Product To Review
As if becoming an afiliate wasn’t amazing enough, I was also sent a sex doll by Tantaly sex dolls to review. It was so amazing and exciting (and scary!) to put my thoughts and efforts into reviewing something that I’d been sent, for free. Thankyou again to Tantaly for choosing me! Haven’t read the review yet? It’s here!
4. Debbie Got An Upgrade
Who here has been following KWAT long enough to remember Debbie? Well in case not, Debbie was my living room robovac. Derek – Debbie’s bedroom-designated boyfriend – unfortunately malfunctioned, so Debbie had a new man in her life, Liam. Liam was hopeless, but Debbie decided to shed her old self (and Liam with it) for a new look and she got herself an upgrade! Debbie can now scan and map the home, allowing her to be delegated at different times to clean different rooms. She pootles off to sweep the kitchen floor everyday at 4PM, gets the bedroom on every other day at 8PM and does the lounge every nght at 4AM while we sleep! Way to go, Debbie!
5. I Still Made Time For Me
Sometimes it’s the smallest things that make the biggest difference, and on a Tuesday and Friday now I put the phone on voicemail and do whatever the hell I need or want to do. Whether it’s editing, writing something, arts and crafts or watching something on TV (#probablyacopshow), those are my ‘me’ days. For too long I’ve been available whenever my family have called me – whether it’s my mother and a spur-of-the-moment dog walk or my father-in-law wanting to know how to cook something – I’ve only ever been a phonecall away because somehow I’ve always felt like I should be. I realised that was a people-pleaser quality in me and so I decided to take some of my days back to do the things that I want and need to do. I have to accept I’m not always other people’s priority, now they need to accept that they can’t always be mine.
That’s it from me for this month! What’s new with you? Be sure to share your gossip (good or bad!) in the comments below and join me again next week. Also, if you want those Lovehoney discounts, don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter!
