BlogCrush Week 82 – 7th September 2018

Get your happy hat on – it’s time for BlogCrush Week 82!

About BlogCrush

BlogCrush is a special type of post called a “linky”. A linky is like an index page linking to lots of different blog posts by lots of different bloggers (chech out this beginner’s linky guide if you want more detail).

The BlogCrush linky is “hosted” here on Lucy At Home (meaning people come here to join in) and on my co-host’s blog, Daydreams of a Mum.

If you’re a blogger: you can add one of your posts to this index by scrolling to the bottom of this page and clicking the blue “add your link” button. 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

The “I’ve been featured” blog badge

BlogCrush is one of the highlights of my week – it’s a chance to see the blogging community at it’s finest, not just because of the FABULOUS posts that are displayed here, but also because of the way bloggers cheer each other along.

One of the requirements of BlogCrush is that, as well as adding a post of your own, you have to add a post by a fellow blogger. This will get them more exposure and comments and shares, and is just an all-round jolly nice thing to do!

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.

Featured Posts

As hosts, we also get to link up posts by other bloggers, but choose posts from the previous week for this.

To qualify as a host’s featured post, it 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

Here are the host BC posts for BlogCrush Week 82:

Kelly’s choice is Looking Forward to Life Over 50 by Kate on Thin Ice

Lucy’s choice is Alarm-ageddon and Other Stories by Endastories

Host Post

And now for my own post… For BlogCrush Week 82, I’m linking up The Big Problem With Parenting Advice

If you’re fed up of hearing unsolicited parenting advice, you need to read this post. Equally, if you’re worried you’re not doing a good enough job and you’re desperate for some parenting advice, you need to read it too!
