BlogCrush Week 75 – 20th July 2018

Hi! This is the weekly link-up post for the #BlogCrush linky and this week is BlogCrush Week 75.

A linky is basically a place where lots of different bloggers can advertise their posts. Keep reading to find out:

(a) how to join in

(b) about lots of fabulous blog posts you might want to read!

About BlogCrush

You can join in with BlogCrush from 6am (BST) Friday until 9pm Sunday. At that time, you can add a link to this blog post that will take readers directly from here to your site.

– If you’re a blogger, add 2 posts (1 of yours AND 1 by someone else) by clicking the blue “add your link” button

– If you’re search for some new reading material, then scroll to the bottom – each thumbnail picture will take you to a different blog post

If you’ve not joined a linky before or you’re a bit unsure about what to do, I’ve put together a beginner’s linky guide which should help. If you’re still stuck, though, feel free to message me and I can talk you through it, no problem 🙂


Join our linky grey BlogCrush Week 75

This week’s hosts are:

If you’ve ever read a blog post and thought, “This is fab! Everyone should have the chance to read this!” then BlogCrush is the linky for you! We ask our bloggers to add a post of their own AND a post they’ve enjoyed that was written by someone else.

That means you might be here because someone nominated your post as their BlogCrush…

Congratulations! Someone must have really liked your post! You don’t have to do anything, but if you would like to display your “I was featured on blogcrush” badge, that would be great. Just copy the code from the text box below and paste it into the HTML / text section of your blog!

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 @daydreamer_mum). 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.

BlogCrush Week 75

Featured Posts

Every link-up, the two BlogCrush hosts choose a brilliant post each from the previous week to be our BlogCrush “host posts” and these are added back into the linky for more views and comments. This is a great way to get some extra exposure for the best posts.

Our new co-host, Kelly, and I were hosting last week so we’ve chosen the featured posts for BlogCrush Week 75:

Kelly’s Blogcrush choice is Selling the Idea of Group Parenting by Mother (Almost Never) Knows Best

My Blogcrush choice is First Born Child: Moments In Time by Old House In The Shires

This was a beautiful reflection on Sophie’s eldest as she is leaving school this time. Seeing our kids growing and becoming more independent is that strange mix of pride and heartache and Sophie captures it perfectly here, and it’s a post I think all parents will relate to.

Congratulations – you are both featured blogcrushers for Blogcrush week 75! You are now eligible for the prestigious (!) “I’ve been featured” blog badge, which you can collect from the top of the page.

Host Post

With the summer holidays now upon us, I’m slowing my blog down for a few weeks and dropping down to 1 post per week (plus blogcrush, obvs – don’t panic! Hehe). For BlogCrush Week 75, I’m linking up The Importance of Cause & Effect in Parenting

This post explores the difference between using punishments and using consequences, and also how to make consequences more effective. It also looks at the positive effect that consequences can have on kids as they realise that what they do has an impact on the world!
