BlogCrush Week 104 – 8th February 2019

Two years. TWO YEARS! BlogCrush has officially been running for two years because today is BlogCrush Week 104!

About BlogCrush

Blogcrush is a linky and so this post is aimed at bloggers rather than my usual content readers.

A linky is place where bloggers can advertise their work – a list of different bloggers, all in one place. BlogCrush is the best linky around (yes I’m biased!) because we’re a supportive community – we ask our bloggers to add a post of their own AND a post that has been written by somebody else.

If you would like to share one of your posts*, simply click the blue “click here to enter” button. A thumbnail picture will appear on THIS post which is a direct link to the YOUR website.

*Please make sure you read and follow the linky rules (below)

(This beginner’s linky guide is packed full of linky info and tips if you’re still feeling a bit confused!).

The BlogCrush linky is co-hosted by myself, and Kelly from Daydreams of a Mum and here’s a bit of a visual summary to let you know what the BlogCrush linky is all about:

The Rules

  • Join in with 2 posts:
    • 1 post from your blog (personal) – no linkies please
    • 1 post from someone else’s blog (your #BlogCrush)

(Please Note: this is a family-friendly website. Whilst we love the range and diversity of the bloggers who link up here, Lucy At Home reserves the right to remove any posts that are deemed inappropriate at her discretion and without warning.)

  • When you add your BlogCrush (post written by someone else) to the InLinkz form, put “BC” at the beginning of their title
  • Tweet your BlogCrush (& us) to let them know you’ve added them to the linky and share their link (@lucy_at_home and @daydreamer_mum). Please tweet us your own BlogCrush posts too so we can share them for you.
  • Comment using the #BlogCrush hashtag on at least these 4 posts:
    • 1 post from Host 1 (personal or BC)
    • 1 post from Host 2 (personal or BC)
    • 2x personal posts from the rest of the link up

So that’s a minimum of 4 posts.

    • Add the #BlogCrush badge to the post that you’re linking up from your own blog. You can do this by copying the gobblydygook code in the box below and pasting it into the HTML view of your post.

BlogCrush Week 104

Featured Posts

The BlogCrush hosts showcase the two best bloggers from each week by adding them back into the following week’s linky as “host featured posts”. As per the BlogCrush rules (see above), these two special posts will get lots of extra comments from our linkers.

Here are our choices for BlogCrush Week 104:

Kelly’s BlogCrush is I Didn’t Fall In Love With My Baby Straight Away by Mummykind

Lucy’s BlogCrush is 7 Things Depression Has Taught Me by Mrs H’s Favourite Things

Lucy’s Own Host Post

My post for BlogCrush Week 104 is Positive Language: The Brain Theory & How To Use It

I picked up this handy trick at the children’s centre when I was a new mum with no experience and a tiny baby to care for. It has been INVALUABLE, and started me off on my journey towards gentle parenting (which I had never heard of at this stage). I hope you find it helpful too!
