BlogCrush Week 71 – 22nd June 2018

This is the the link-up post for BlogCrush Week 71. I currently have a poorly child at home with me which always makes working from home tricky, but I’m really glad you guys took the time to come over! So let’s get on with it, shall we!

About BlogCrush

BlogCrush is a “linky” which means at the bottom of this post is a place where bloggers can add a link to one of their posts. The idea of a linky is to create a space where bloggers can showcase their work and connect with some new readers. This linky opens at 6am (BST) on a Friday, so a blue button will appear saying “add your link”.

– If you’re a blogger, add 2 posts (1 of yours AND 1 by someone else)

– If you’re search for some new reading material, then scroll to the bottom – each thumbnail 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.

We try to pin all posts with a pinnable image will be added to the Blogcrush Pinterest Board, but we are still struggling a little with handing over from Alice to Liberty. Please be assured that we are trying to get this sorted ASAP.




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 @libertyhenwick). 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

As BlogCrush hosts, we always choose one of the fab linkers from the previous week to be our BlogCrush host posts. This is a great way to get some extra exposure for the best posts from last week.

Liberty and I were hosting last week so we’ve chosen the featured posts for BlogCrush Week 71:

Liberty’s Blogcrush choice is Symptoms & Diagnosis of a Missed Miscarriage by Mrs H’s Favourite Things

My Blogcrush choice is Getting Fit By Dancing, With My New GetFit by Rose Tinted Ramblings

I think lots of people feel disappointed when they first strap on their pedometer device and discover how far from the 10,000-steps-per-day-goal they really are. This fun post from Berni is a great solution and I love the video demonstration…!

Congratulations, my lovelies! Please collect your “I’ve been featured” badges from the top of the page because you are featured bloggers on BlogCrush Week 71!

Host Post

For BlogCrush Week 71, I’m linking up Gentle Parenting Means Being Gentle With Yourself Too

A few weeks ago, I shared a post about what discipline looks like in a gentle parenting family and somebody commented that they wanted to use these techniques but that “shouty mum” often appeared instead. She also spoke about the guilt from being shouty mum.

Well this post is written in response to that comment. Gentle parents work hard at understanding their children and empathising with them, but they also need to learn to empathise with themselves and stop giving themselves a hard time.

Gentle parenting means being gentle with yourself too - child holding strawberries


Once again, thank you for joining us and here are the posts for BlogCrush Week 71:
