BlogCrush Week 40 – 17th November 2017

BlogCrush Week 40 is live and kicking! Thank you so much for joining us 🙂

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. 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!

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)
  • When you add your BlogCrush (post written by someone else) to the InLinkz form, put “BC” at the beginning of their title
  • 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

Remember you can always comment on more, though. This is just the minimum. The more effort we put into a linky, the more we all get out of it 🙂

  • 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 40

Featured Posts

As co-hosts we get the lovely job of choosing a post each from the previous linky to be our BlogCrushes. Alice and I were hosting last week so we’ve chosen the featured posts for BlogCrush Week 40:

Alice’s Blogcrush post is I’ll Never Dance La Macarena Again by Raisie Bay

Lucy’s Blogcrush post is Quality Christmas Gifts for Teen Boys That Won’t Break The Bank by Liberty on the Lighter Side

I love the variety of gifts in this list. I don’t have any teen boys to buy for, but I can see lots of things my hubby wouldn’t mind getting! Haha. I love that the Christmas Gift Guides are starting to appear. I’m hoping to get mine finished this coming week…!

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

Host Post

My post for BlogCrush Week 40 is an open letter to stuffed toys! – Stuffed Toys of the World – I Salute You!

This is my letter of thanks to stuffed toys worldwide, for helping me as I parent my kids. I don’t my girls would ever leave the house without knowing they had a teddy tucked under their arm. And they certainly wouldn’t fall asleep. When I can’t be there with my children, a teddy is a compact, portable substitute and I just don’t think they’re given enough credit! Haha.

    Such an inspired link-up, wonderful to be able to share what you’ve found interesting from other bloggers. It’s a nice feeling to be able to showcase a blog and also I can imagine it’s lovely when your own blog is mentioned!
