Blogger Takeover with glo - The Results

Last Thursday glo challenged Emma from From Aldi to Harrods and I to swap blogs for the day. The catch was we had to swap with a contrasting blog. As you know my blog is food and family orientated. Whereas From Aldi to Harrods is all about how to make money and save money. Which is a completely different niche to what I usually write about!

Last week Emma wrote a recipe for Coconut Chicken and Roasted Vegetable Rice and I went back to what I know best, food, and hunted out the best offers that I could find in the supermarkets. You can read my supermarket money saving post here.

As any blogger will tell you, we are very protective over our little space on the internet and allowing someone else to take over for the day was a big thing for me. So it really was a challenge to put my trust in Emma and it must have been the same for her. But it was all about placing trust in each other, trusting that each other would write a post that would not let the other down. I, for one, was not disappointed in the recipe that Emma wrote for Hijacked By Twins. In fact it is a recipe that I would love to try!

This is the similar situation to a loan guarantor. The guarantor is putting their trust in you that you will pay the loan and you need to honour their trust by keeping up the loan repayments. It is a great example of team work at its best!

You may be wondering who glo are. Well let me tell you.

glo are an online, unsecured, guarantor loan company who believe that trust is an important factor in deciding if someone can qualify for a loan. If you have someone who trusts you, will put themselves forwards as a guarantor and you can afford the repayments then glo will help you. At last there is a company there that is willing to help people who have a poor credit rating or no credit rating at all. The best thing is that they are not a payday loan company or a company who charge a ridiculous amount of interest.

If you are considering being a guarantor for somebody the decision tree below should help you to make the right decision.

It is important that you take everything into consideration before either taking a loan or agreeing to become a guarantor. 

I really enjoyed taking part in the blog swap so thank you to glo and to Emma from From Aldi to Harrods for trusting me to write for her blog for the day!
