BlogCrush Week 66 – 18th May 2018

Hello my lovelies! Whether you’re a newbie, a seasoned pro, or anything in between, welcome to BlogCrush Week 66!

Thank you to everyone who sent me get well wishes last week. Unfortunately, the tonsillitis saga continues (Day 12 and counting…!) but I now have some new meds and I’m beginning to feel a bit more like myself again. Fingers crossed I’ll be all sorted by this time next week.

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 (1 of yours AND 1 by someone else) 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 66

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 something unique. So often, we really appreciate someone’s work but don’t feel able to tell them. Well BlogCrush is your new way to tell them – add their post here for a lovely confidence boost and some extra exposure!

If you’re here because someone nominated you for BlogCrush…

That means they really liked it! Congratulations – you must’ve written something fab! 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 even more exposure!

Alice and I were hosting last week so we’ve chosen the featured posts for BlogCrush Week 66:

Alice’s Blogcrush choice is Tips For Camping With Young Children by Mixed Bag Mama

My Blogcrush choice is 10 Things I Want You To Know As You Turn 10 by Daydreams of a Mum

The special bond between Kelly and her now-10-year-old, Izzy, just spills out of the page in this heartfelt post. I love the sentiments about staying true to yourself and retaining your quirks – something that I feel strongly about too and wish for my own girls as I grow up.

Congratulations, ladies! Please collect your “I’ve been featured” badges from the top of the page because you are featured bloggers on BlogCrush Week 66!

Host Post

For BlogCrush Week 66, I’m linking up a post that may be a little controversial (!) but is basically all about how hubby and I parent our kids and what we think the key to parenting is – How To Stick To Your Guns Without Being Dictator Mummy

Everyone parents differently and has different priorities and values, and that is completely your choice. But this post really summarises what I have found to be the most effective method of parenting in my 7 years as a mum and 5 years as a teacher before that. I’d love to know what you think of it…!
