BlogCrush Week 84 – 21st September 2018

This is a linky post for the parenting and lifestyle blogging community, BlogCrush. And it’s BlogCrush Week 84.

About BlogCrush

A linky is like an index page linking to lots of different blog posts by lots of different bloggers (check out this beginner’s linky guide if you want more details).

The BlogCrush linky is “hosted” here on Lucy At Home (meaning people come here to join in) and on 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

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!

If you’re here because someone nominated your post as their BlogCrush…

Congratulations! Someone must have really liked your post! You can collect your (well earned) blog badge by copying the code from the text box below and pasting 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 84

Featured Posts

All our linkers are super nice (because they share posts by other people), and so we like to give them a big pat on the back and an extra shout out to the best posts each week. Both hosts choose one post each from the previous link-up and add it back into the linky as a HOST FEATURED POST.

To qualify as a host’s featured post, your 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

Here are the host BC posts for BlogCrush Week 84:

Kelly’s choice is TBC

Lucy’s choice is Toffee Apples and Inspired Recipes by Raisie Bay

Host Post

And for my own post this week, I’m linking up How To Use Praise To Encourage Good Behaviour

I wrote a few weeks ago about how much children thrive on positive attention. This post is an extension of that and explains a teacher-approved method for using positive attention and praise to inspire kids to do the right thing.

    Lucy, thank you for hosting. My #BlogCrush today is one about quitting smoking. As an adult with lifelong respiratory issues due to having grown up in a house with two smoking parents, I urge everyone to quit smoking, if not for their own sakes, then for their children’s.
