Hello, my lovelies, and welcome back – it’s Blogcrush Week 31. I am flying solo this week (eeek!) as Wendy is taking a bit of time off so I’m really glad that you guys have been able to join me.
#Blogcrush is a linky party where you get to promote one of your own posts AND a post written by someone else too. It’s great for building relationships with other bloggers, as well as driving traffic to your own site too. If you’ve not joined a linky before, check out my beginner’s linky guide.
As I’m on my own this week (and possibly for the foreseeable future), I have had to update the rules again so please check them out below.
Below is our “I’ve been featured” blog badge and it is for anyone who has been added to the blogcrush linky by someone else. That means someone has really loved your post, and you defo deserve to shout about that! Just copy the code in the text box and paste it into the HTML / text section of your blog. Go on – you’ve earned it!
- Join in with 2 posts:
- 1 post from your blog (personal) – no linkies please
- 1 post from someone else’s blog (your #BlogCrush)
- 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
- Comment using the #BlogCrush hashtag on at least these 4 posts:
- 1 of the Host’s posts
- 1 of the the Host’s Blogcrush posts
- 2x personal posts from the rest of the link up
- Add the #BlogCrush badge to the post that you’re linking up from your own blog. You can do this by copying the
gobblydygookcode in the box below and pasting it into the HTML view of your post.
I’d love to share your posts with my followers so please tag me in your tweets using the #BlogCrush hashtag. You can find me at @lucy_at_home
Blogcrush Week 31
Each week, two posts from the linky are selected and added back into the linky the following week as the HOST BLOGCRUSH posts. These posts get lots of extra comments because all linkers have to choose one to comment on. This little perk is reserved for YOUR posts only (i.e. not your blogcrushes). Here are the featured posts for Blogcrush Week 31 –
- Our First Family Holiday by Feeling Mum Yet
This amazing mum adopted two boys and I have found her blog a real insight into what the adoption system is like in the UK. It has really helped me relate to my friend who also has two adopted children. After the difficult time they’ve had recently, it was lovely to read about their well-deserved family holiday.
- 5 Reasons Why Employers Turn Down Flexible Working by The Squirmy Popple
Flexible working can make such a massive difference to family life. My hubby actually turned down a higher paid job in favour of staying somewhere that offered flexible hours. I particularly liked this post because, for every obstacle suggested, a solution is offered. I’m sure it will be really helpful to anyone looking at working in a more flexible way.
Congratulations, guys! Please collect your “I’ve been featured” badges from the top of the page
As solo host this week, I am adding two host posts so that you can choose which one you’d like to comment on.
My first post for blogcrush week 31 is 40 Money-Saving Tricks You Might Not Have Tried.
I think most of us are feeling the pinch and, with Christmas (yes I said it!) on the horizon, it’s time to start cutting down on costs and saving up a bit of money. This post is a quick run down of a few simple things we do as a family to make our hard-earned cash go further!
My second host post is Bloggers Bluff 25 ft. E L Feelgood’s Vintage
For those of you who haven’t come across it yet, Bloggers Bluff is my guest-blogger series. Each edition features a new blogger who will tell 3 funny / unusual stories about themselves. Two stories are true and one is a lie. We then invite the readers to guess which the lie is. (If anyone is interested in taking part, I have some slots available in the coming months so just let me know!)
Thank you once again for popping by. I love this little community and having the chance to share some blog love around. We’ve added an extra field into the inlinkz form which asks if the post is your personal or blogcrush post. This is to help give you a prompt to add BC to the relevant title. Hope that helps. Have fun at blogcrush week 31!
Love, Lucy x
