It's a 2009 Mystery!

How strange!!!

This morning I had an e-mail from someone who is working on Thorntons marketing team (yes the chocolate people) about the project above where I made a box to put some of their chocolate blocks was posted back in 2009!!! said


My name is Emma Stott and I work within the marketing team at Link Sentinel. I have been reviewing existing links to our client site as part of an on-going SEO review. I have discovered a link on your site linking to us from the following page:

I would be extremely grateful if you would be able to remove the highlighted link above as I feel that this could cause us both problems with ranking in Google in the near future. It would be great if you could get back to me so that we can discuss further.

Most peculiar...but I have removed the link (I also have removed the link that was in the e-mail that I copied here too!!! LOL)........and also said this

Good Morning Emma,
Well I've removed the link from way back in 2009!!!
Sorry if I did anything wrong but it is the done thing in the crafty world to be nice and provide links to products you use in any projects that you blog about...even if it is chocolate and not crafty goodies!!! ;)
Best regards

Surely no-one is going to be looking at that bit of blogger any day soon?
And does that mean that being nice and doing links is absolutely pointless....I certainly won't be bothering any more unless specifially called to...such as entering challenges etc!!!!

It's a mystery to me ;)

P.S. I know I have been missing in action lately but I intend to show my desk top on Wednesday ;) Those of you who know will know what I mean LOL!! :)


  1. It's all very strange. I had a similar email from Moneymarket when they had a competition a year ago. Very strange. Hope all is well. :)

  2. Ditto Crafting Queen. Maybe there's been a legal case/change in the law at some point? Who knows. Hope the planning is all going well. Jenny x

  3. How very odd! Still, their loss.... I look forward to seeing your desk on Wednesday, as I know well what you mean, lol!

  4. Weird but what do I know? It really does seem an odd thing after all that time - Oh Well! Look forward to Wednesday! Hope preparations are going well! Chrisxx

  5. I bet some American firm has bought them!!!


Thank you for showing an interest in my blog and taking the time to leave a comment.....I truly love to read what you keeps me sane(ish)!
