BlogCrush Week 44 – 14th December 2017

Blogcrush Week 44 is here and we’re ready to fill the blogisphere with lots of bloggy love (courtesy of you guys!)

BlogCrush is a linky party so it’s a place where bloggers can drop a link to one of their posts for us to read, a bit like a blog contents page. Then we click on the posts that catch our eye and have a read.

BlogCrush is 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:

Join our linky grey BlogCrush Week 44

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!

1) BlogCrush WILL be open right the way through Christmas! We know lots of linkys close over Christmas but we wanted to give you somewhere to link up if you wanted to. And remember, even if you haven’t got a post to add, you can always take a break from your festivities and pop over for a read. Here is the hosting schedule for the next few weeks:

  • 15th Dec – Lucy At Home & Letters To My Daughter
  • 22nd Dec – Lucy At Home & Letters To My Daughter
  • 29th Dec – Naptime Natter & Letters To My Daughter
  • 5th Jan – Naptime Natter & Letters To My Daughter
  • 12th Jan – Lucy At Home & Letters To My Daughter

2) We now have a BlogCrush Pinterest Board. I’m afraid I am new to the world of Pinterest (I signed up this week!) so I’m still learning on this one but Wendy and Alice are bringing me up to speed. We’re hoping to pin all of the posts you link up over there to help bring more traffic to your sites. The board is set up and we have already added some posts from last week’s link up. Please follow us here:





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 44

Featured Posts

As co-hosts we get the lovely job of choosing a post each from the previous linky to be our BlogCrushes.

We only choose posts that are added by one of our linkers (not your BC posts) and have the linky badge. These are then added back into the linky the following week as featured posts. Alice and I were hosting last week so we’ve chosen the featured posts for BlogCrush Week 44:

Alice’s Blogcrush post is 9 Blogging Tips That Work Magic by Kate on Thin Ice 

Lucy’s Blogcrush post is When You Have Post Natal Depression at Christmas by Wendy from Naptime Natter

I could relate a lot to Wendy’s post as last Christmas was very difficult for me too, although for different reasons. Sometimes, we just need to hear from someone who has been there before and Wendy writes so honestly about her experiences with PND that you really feel like you’re confiding in your best friend.

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