Hi guys and welcome to BlogCrush Week 41. I am loving that the Christmas posts are starting to make an appearance (Christmas starts in mid-September when you’re a blogger doesn’t it! Ha!).
This week has been crazy-busy in the Lucy At Home world as I’ve been working through my Christmas Gift Guides. I’ll be honest and say I am feeling slightly frayed around the edges with the ridiculous hours I’ve been putting in (right now it is 10pm, I have just walked in from a meeting and I now have to make a start on my pile of urgent blogmin tasks. Bleugh…!). But BlogCrush is my happy place – I love hearing how being nominated has made someones day and I love reading all your fab posts. So I’m in full blogcrush mode and looking forward to seeing who / what gets linked up (and here’s hoping I’m over the worst and things start to quieten down after this week…!).
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. Easy 🙂
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!
- 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 ( @lucy_at_home and @L2MyDaughter )
- 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
gobblydygookcode in the box below and pasting it into the HTML view of your post.
Blogcrush Week 41
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 41:
Alice’s Blogcrush post is Getting Older Doesn’t Totally Suck by Daydreams of a Mum
Lucy’s Blogcrush post is Born Too Soon: Surviving the NICU Journey by Miller in the City
My niece was born at 26 weeks and I remember these anxious days and months of seeing her hooked up to wires and machines. Then, when Jenny was just 3 months old, she also had an extensive hospital stay. This post brought back a lot of memories but it is wonderfully encouraging to anyone who might be going through this – sometimes we just need someone to say “I’ve been there” and to put our feelings and emotions into words for us.
Congratulations, guys! Please collect your “I’ve been featured” badges from the top of the page
My post for BlogCrush Week 41 all about the Forest School we went to as a family last week – #MudFestMCR hosted by Grass & Air and Our Kid
It was an event called Mud Fest Manchester and it involved the kids getting very muddy to test out some new waterproofs from Grass & Air. There was den-building, slack-lining, even marshmallow-roasting! We love being outside as a family and this was definitely one of our favourite blogging events that we’ve been to as a family.
Thank you so much for popping by for BlogCrush Week 41. It is a pleasure co-hosting such a lovely linky, filled with such fab bloggers. Have fun reasing everyone’s posts and I’ll be catching up on them in the next few days.
Love, Lucy x
