BlogCrush Week 49 – 19th January 2018

We had a great turn out last week with 56 brilliant posts being linked up! Let’s make Blogcrush Week 49 just as good!

For those of you who didn’t see last week – we have a SUPER EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT to make:

Fri 16th Feb marks a whole year of the BlogCrush linky! And to thank you all for your support, we’ve arranged a Bloggers’ Bundle Giveaway EXCLUSIVELY for our #BlogCrush linkers! It will be open only to people who have linked up here at BlogCrush. There will also be an additional prize awarded to the person who has been chosen as a Host BlogCrush the most number of times.

More details to follow in the coming weeks…!

Okay, now back to this week. If you’ve not joined a linky before, check out my beginner’s linky guide which will tell you everything you need to know. But remember – BlogCrush is unique – we want you to share the blog love around by adding a post of your own AND linking up a post written by someone else!

This week’s hosts are:

Join our linky grey BlogCrush Week 49

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!

We now have a BlogCrush Pinterest Board. Wendy, Alice and myself thought it would be nice to have a board where we can showcase all the fabulous posts that are linked up here each week. We have also created a “best of blogcrush” board where the host’s featured blogcrush posts will get a second pin. Please pop over and give us a follow (and obvs we’ll follow you back) –





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.

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 49:

Alice’s Blogcrush post is So Ladies? What’s With The Smear Fear? by Mimi Rose and Me

Lucy’s Blogcrush post is Advice on Raising Teens & Tweens by Reflections From Me

I think lots of parents worry about the teenage years – we remember what we were like and feel dreadfully nervous about being on the parenting side of the relationship! But I love the advice on Reflections From Me and, in many ways, it’s just a case of being the same steady, always-there figure that we need to be when our kids are little.

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

Host Post

My post for BlogCrush Week 49 is a follow up post to last week and is called Childhood Anxiety: The Plan That Went Wrong

Last week, I wrote about how we finally put the pieces of a complex jigsaw together and realised my young daughter has anxiety. In an effort to tackle the issue, I organised a mummy-daughter date for us at the doughnut shop, but things didn’t go to plan.

I definitely feel out of my depth with this but I’m hoping that sharing my experiences will help other parents facing this too. I’ve made mistakes and I hope that I can learn from them..

Thank you so much for popping by and joining in with BlogCrush Week 49, either as a linker or as a reader, and I hope to see you again next week.

Love, Lucy x

P.S. Please add the linky badge to your posts as it encourages more people to join in 🙂
