BlogCrush Week 80 – 24th August 2018

Good morning bloggers (and any others who’ve popped along for browse of this week’s reading selections!). This is BlogCrush Week 80.

About BlogCrush

Have you ever wondered what a linky is? Well this beginner’s linky guide should help, but essentially a linky is a collection of blog posts by lots of different writers.

If you’re a blogger: you can add your own posts to this collection by clicking the blue “add your link” button at the bottom of this post. At BlogCrush we also ask every blogger to add a post by someone else too 9see rules below)

If you’re a reader: From Friday morning onwards, thumbnail pictures will start appearing at the bottom of this post. Each thumbnail will take you to a different blog post

Join our linky grey BlogCrush Week 80

This week’s hosts are:

The “I’ve been featured” blog badge

BlogCrush is 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 @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 80

Featured Posts

As hosts, we also get to link up posts by other bloggers, but the difference is, we always choose one of the posts from the previous week. These are then added back into the linky as “Host BC” posts and it’s a great way to get some extra exposure for the best posts.

To qualify, the post must:

  • Have been linked up in person (i.e. we don’t choose BC posts, only posts by our actual linkers)
  • Display the BlogCrush Linky badge, or a text link back to one of the hosts

Wendy and Kelly were hosting last week so they’ve chosen the featured posts for BlogCrush Week 80.

For BlogCrush Week 80, I’m linking up The Kids Are Listening – 5 Harmful Things You Might Be Saying

One of the toughest things about being a parent is that there’s no such thing as being “off-duty”! Our children are listening and learning all the time. I’ve written a lot in the past about how important parenting language can be, and this post goes on to explore some of the common mistakes that we can make in this area.

    Well, I’m a little late to the game. Somehow I missed your comment on my blog, but I was so pleased to see the sweet idea of “blogcrush”. And then to see that someone posted my blog put a smile on my face. Thank you for hosting such a encouraging link up!
