Welcome back fro BlogCrush Week 39. I can’t believe how quickly the weeks are flying by!
This is a linky party which means it’s a place where bloggers can drop a link to one of their posts. Then we all comment on each others posts and everyone is happy. BlogCrush is particularly special, though, because we don’t just add a post of our own – we also link up a post by someone else too. So think of a post that has really resonated with you – did it make you laugh? or cry? or was it super informative? – and then add it to the list as your BlogCrush post. Simples.
If you’ve not joined a linky before, check out my beginner’s linky guide which will tell you everything you need to know 🙂
This week’s hosts are:
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.

Go on – you’ve earned it!

Blogcrush Week 39
As co-hosts we get the lovely job of choosing a post each from the previous linky to be our BlogCrushes. Wendy and I were hosting last week so we’ve chosen the featured posts for BlogCrush Week 39:
Wendy’s Blogcrush post is Stupid Girl by Reflections From Me
Lucy’s Blogcrush post is What To Expect When You’re Adopting by Instant Mum of Two
This is an honest post about the painful wait as an approved adopter, waiting to be matched with your children. It gives a real insight into what it must be like and there are some lessons for all of us in here.
Congratulations, guys! Please collect your “I’ve been featured” badges from the top of the page
SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT – This is the last call for my 5-part e-course about hosting a giveaway. It’s a great way to drive traffic to your blog (my latest competition had over 11,600 entries for an item worth £30.)
The introductory price of £15 is only valid until 14th Nov so if you’re thinking of signing up, click the link below! You can always sign up now (while it’s cheap) and do the course later on in your own time.
Right, and now back to today. My post for BlogCrush Week 39 is Reclaiming York From The Dark Depression Days.
I don’t think I’ve spoken much about my health on the blog yet. It’s a difficult one to talk about and a door that I hope is firmly shut behind me. But in my early twenties, I suffered with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME). For 6 years, I was permanently exhausted and in pain. I was also desperately depressed.
Last week, we visited York (the place where it all happened) and the memories came flooding back. I have been free from CFS/ME for 4 years now, but it’s amazing how sights and sounds can take you straight back to those dark days.
Thank you so much for popping by for BlogCrush Week 39. I love reading all your posts and being part of such a lovely linky. You are all wonderful! Mwah!
Love, Lucy x
