Blogcrush Week 20 – 30 June 2017

Wow Blogcrush week 20 has rolled around already and I’m so glad you could join us for it!

Blogcrush is all about celebrating brilliant blogs. As bloggers, we read a lot of blogs (!) and when one really jumps out at you and you know that it deserves some extra attention, bring it here! We ask our bloggers to share 1 post that they’ve written themselves and 1 post that they’ve enjoyed by someone else.

Blogcrush Week 20

Featured Posts

Each time, Wendy (my lovely co-host from Naptime Natter) and I pick a post each from the previous #blogcrush link up to feature. That means you get lots of extra comments from our lovely linkers! But remember, only posts linked up in person are eligible for this (i.e. not your blogcrushes). Here are the featured posts for Blogcrush Week 20 –

Wendy’s #Blogcrush is How To Pack For A Family Holiday by Rhyming With Wine

My #Blogcrush is Why I Am Giving My Stuff Away: My Journey With Minimalism by UK Yankee

I’m a terrible hoarder (I attach sentimental value to everything and then I can’t get rid of it!) so I always like posts that encourage me to ditch the clutter. But this one particularly stood out for me because it showed a real journey and was quite moving! It’s not just the act of getting rid of stuff, it’s the life-changes too.

Hurray! Well done, guys! Please collect your “I’ve been featured” badges from the top of the page 

Host Post

Finally, the post I’m linking up for Blogcrush week 20 is a little poem I’ve written called  The Mummy I Try To Be.

In my mind, I have a picture of the sort of mum I want to be – kind, calm, patient, firm – but the reality is often very different. I wanted a chance to explore that and maybe explain it a bit to my girls. I think it’s good to have something to work towards but we have to accept that we’ll never get it right all the time.

I try to be the mummy who plays outside wellies

Right I think that’s all the admin stuff so let’s get linking! Thanks for popping over to #blogcrush and I’m looking forward to seeing what wonderful posts you guys have brought along to make Blogcrush week 20 go with a bang!

P.S. just a quick reminder to add BC to the title of your post by someone else. Thanks 🙂
