BlogCrush Week 50 – 26th January 2018

Hi everyone and welcome to BlogCrush Week 50 !

If you’re a blogger, this is a place where you can share your work with some other fab creatives and be inspired by their work too. If you’re a blog-reader, you can expect a choice of some of the best blog posts around in the list below.

BlogCrush (as far as we know) is totally unique as a linky because we ask our bloggers to add a post of their own AND a post that they loved by someone else. It means that our link up is packed full of quality posts from lots of different genres, and it’s a great way to gift some extra exposure to the posts that have really grabbed your attention. If you’re a blogger but you haven’t joined a linky before, check out my beginner’s linky guide which will tell you everything you need to know!

Lucy At Home Blogcrush Week 50

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 Pinterest 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.

Blogcrush Week 50

Featured Posts

As co-hosts we get the lovely job of choosing a post each from the previous linky to be our BlogCrushes. Please note: we only choose your personal posts for this accolade (i.e. not your BC nominations) and they must contain the linky badge.

These two favourites 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 50:

Alice’s Blogcrush post is Advice To My Younger Self Wrapped Up In An ’80s Bow by Mother (Almost Never) Knows Best

Lucy’s Blogcrush post is ‘Saul’ and the ‘White Goose Cafe’ – a Tale of a Big Bully by Liberty on the Lighter Side

I’m not sure if this news story has reached our friends overseas but it’s certainly rocked the blogging world here in the UK. Essentially a blogger asked for a free stay at a hotel, and the hotel owner publicly humiliated the blogger by plastering it all over social media and telling her to get a proper job. Liberty’s parody of the story really puts things into perspective and is actually quite touching.

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

Host Post

My post for BlogCrush Week 50 is a follow up post to last week and is called Positive Language – The Brain Theory & How To Use It

I’ve always been fascinated by the brain! It’s an amazing bit of kit! This post is an easy-to-read explanation of why positive words are important, and how it makes us better parents. When I learnt this stuff, it was a game-changer!
