BlogCrush Week 77 – 2nd August 2018

Hi there, my lovely readers! Every week, I co-host a linky called Blog Crush; it’s an opportunity to share some great posts by other bloggers. This week is BlogCrush Week 76.

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

Writers can add their posts to the BlogCrush from 6am (BST) Friday until 9pm Sunday but the posts will be here indefinitely so you can always pop back and find your favourites again later.

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

– If you’re a reader who would like to find some fab posts, then scroll to the bottom – each thumbnail picture will take you to a different blog post

If you’re a blogger who is new to linkies, I’ve written this little beginner’s linky guide to talk you through it. If you’re still confused, though, just message me and I can help you out!

This week’s hosts are:

The BlogCrush linky is for bloggers who like to support and encourage others. It’s a real feel-good linky, sprinkling happiness all over the blogging world!

If you’ve ever read a blog post and thought, “This is fab! More people need 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 @naptimenatter). 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

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 77:

Kelly’s Blogcrush choice is Telling Work You’re Pregnant by ShoutyMs

My Blogcrush choice is To The Guy I Married Twice by Bellissimamma

My choice last week was a love story, and this week’s is too! (I must be getting soppy in my old age!) But in a world that seems increasingly filled with bad news, it’s nice to have some happy ones. This is a personal post from Bellissimamma about why she married her husband twice, and a look back over their 5 years of marriage.

Congratulations – you are both featured blogcrushers for Blogcrush week 77! You are now eligible for the prestigious (!) “I’ve been featured” blog badge, which you can collect from the top of the page.

For BlogCrush Week 77, I’m linking up Why It’s Essential To Add EMPATHY To Your Parenting Arsenal

Empathy is being able to imagine how someone else is feeling, and I think it’s so important try and get inside our kids’ heads. It makes understanding their behaviour so much easier!

If empathy is something you struggle with, I’ve also added some extra tips on how to become empathetic when it doesn’t come naturally.
