BlogCrush Week 65 – 11th May 2018

Happy Friday and welcome to BlogCrush Week 65!

First off, an apology – I’m sorry it took me so long to comment on your posts this week but I have been in bed with Tonsillitis (booo!). Thankfully, no-one else in the house has come down with it and I’m on the mend now, but that also explains why I’m linking up an old post this week too. Such is life! Onwards and upwards!

About BlogCrush

BlogCrush is a place where bloggers can advertise their posts – the official name is a “linky”. At 6am (BST) on a Friday, a blue button will appear at the bottom of this page saying “add your link” – that means the linky is ready for bloggers to add their work.

– If you’re a blogger, add 2 posts (yours AND someone else’s that you loved) by clicking on the blue “Add your link” button near the bottom of this post

– If you’re just here to read some fab blogs then keep scrolling and you’ll find the thumbnail links below – each will take you to a different blog post

If you’re new to linkies and you’re not sure how to do it, don’t panic! Check out my beginner’s linky guide for some help and advice, and feel free to message me if you have any specific questions.

Blog Crush linky concept BlogCrush Week 65


This week’s hosts are:

BlogCrush is a little bit different to other linkies. Usually you just add your own posts, but we wanted to create a community that lavished the blogisphere with love! So we don’t just share our own posts – we also ask each blogger to link up a post that they’ve enjoyed by someone else.

So you might be here because a fellow blogger has added your post.

That means they really liked it and they wanted to give it some extra exposure. You are under no obligation to do anything, but you have earned the coveted “I was featured on blogcrush” badge. If you’d like to display this on your blog, simply copy the code from the text box below and paste it into the HTML / text section of your blog!

All posts with a pinnable image will be added to the Blogcrush Pinterest Board, and the host’s blogcrushes will be added to the Best of Blogcrush board! We’d love you to follow those boards and the hosts too 🙂





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
  • Tweet your BlogCrush (& us) to let them know you’ve added them to the linky and share their link ( @lucy_at_home and @L2MyDaughter ). Please tweet us your own BlogCrush posts too so we can share them for you.
  • 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

So that’s a minimum of 4 posts.

    • 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

If you linked up last week, you’re eligible to be one of the hosts’ BlogCrush posts for this week. Whilst everyone else has the whole blogisphere to pick a post from, we hosts choose our favourite from the week before and add it back into the linky for some extra exposure!

Alice and I were hosting last week so we’ve chosen the featured posts for BlogCrush Week 65 and it’s a rhyming extravaganza this week! Haha:

Alice’s Blogcrush choice is The Rise and Fall of Supermum by Rhyming With Wine

My Blogcrush choice is Writing about Writing in Rhyming Cuplets by Liberty on the Lighter Side

I think we all know that feeling of being unable to sleep while you grapple with an idea in the middle of the night. I loved Liberty’s poem about the struggles of having an idea churning in your brain but not wanting to disturb the rest of the house…!

Congratulations, ladies! Please collect your “I’ve been featured” badges from the top of the page because you are featured bloggers on BlogCrush Week 65!

Host Post

This week I’m linking up a post about watching your kids grow up and wanting to still be involved – To My Grown Up Children, Don’t Forget Me

I am so proud of the way that my girls are developing and I am loving being able to do more and more with them. As I talked about in my post from last week, I know they probably won’t want me around as much in their teenage years, but I do hope that we’ll still be able to be close on the other side…

IMPORTANT: Please add your own email address to the inlinkz form for both posts you submit. This is to comply with new data protection laws which do not allow us to store the email addresses of people who haven’t chosen to share them with us. Thank you xx
