BlogCrush Week 81 – 31st August 2018

Hello and welcome to the kindest linky around (not my words but an accolade I am more than happy to claim!). This is BlogCrush Week 81.

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 (see 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 81

This week I have some sad news – my lovely blogging pal, Wendy, from Naptime Natter has had to make the difficult decision to stop co-hosting BlogCrush with us. Wendy has been involved right from the start and I would never have been brave enough to take the plunge and start one if it hadn’t been for her tweeting about wanting to start one too.

Thank you for all your hard work over the last year and a half, Wendy!

This also means that from now on, BlogCrush will be hosted every week by myself and Kelly:

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 81

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

Kelly and I were hosting last week so we’ve chosen the host BC posts for BlogCrush Week 81:

Kelly’s choice is Mornings With Your Little Troll by Dad’s Turn

Lucy’s choice is Superhero, Super Inappropriate by Parenting Phils

Host Post

For BlogCrush Week 81, I’m linking up Positive Attention is the Kindest Form of Parenting

As parents, we can often feel like we spend a lot of time barking orders and saying, “No!”. But, on a quest to create a happier home environment, I’ve picked up some nifty little tricks on how to parent using positive attention instead, and I’ve shared them here.
