Share the Joy



Hey friends,

Welcome to Share the Joy!

I’ll be honest I’ve been feeling bit defeated so I thought I’d share that with you all.  For the last 2 weeks I’ve had migraine after migraine and the effects of those migraines have really taken their toll and writing has been impossible.

The headache is awful, obviously, but it’s the other symptoms that are hard to take. Including brain fog, forgetfulness, irritability, frustration leading to stress and more headaches.  You may have noticed that the only blog post I’ve produced in the last couple of weeks have been these posts – Share the Joy.

When I come to sit down I just find the well is dry, do you find that sometimes?  I know I have thoughts in there somewhere, but for the life of me I can’t find them, they’re hiding away somewhere I can’t access them and even if I could a coherent sentence might not follow.

Thank goodness for the steadiness this linky provides and for you guys linking up week after week.  Your joy-filled posts every week keeps my inspiration tank topped up for the days when the fog lifts and I can crack on with writing once again.

Right, on to the link up!

Share the Joy is the happiness-focused linky created by Michelle Reeves from Michelle Reeves Coaching, formerly known as The Joy Chaser.

Michelle has asked me to step in and host for her while she creates some exciting new courses and free resources for busy mamas and bloggers – including working 121 with them to create exciting goals and actionable plans to make 2017 their Best Year Yet! (Find out more here Best Year Yet!).

I’m really excited to be hosting and can’t wait to read all your fabulous posts!

Bloggers, writers, artists, poets, if creating something made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile – you’re welcome here.

Link up and share your creations with a wider audience. All genres are welcome – new or old favourites and as many links as you like.


Each week, I’ll pick a favorite post and feature it on the following week’s Share the Joy link up (I’ll be adding my picks to Michelle’s Pinterest Board where you’ll find all our favorites in one place).  Last time I loved:   Vlogging bloopers from the farm in 2016 by Fiona at Coombe Mill which made me laugh out loud.

Today I’m sharing some old posts and I would love your comments.  Ok, let’s Share the Joy!

Here’s a reminder of the 3 really simple rules…

1) Link up a creation that has brought you JOY – all genres are welcome, new or old favourites and as many links as you like!

2) Link back either by including the Share the Joy badge (below) or a text link back to this Share the Joy linky page in your own post.

3) Please comment on one of your hosts’ posts and a few others. Let’s Share the JOY through commenting as well as through our posts!

Share the Joy will run for a whole week until the following week’s linky is open, so you’ll never be too late. And don’t forget to tweet me (@lizzie_roles) and Michelle (@MReevesCoaching) the URL to your post using the hashtag #sharethejoylinky so we can retweet it.

Feel free to invite your friends to join in – JOY is always better when it’s shared!

Share the Joy every Monday at

Have an awesome week!
