BlogCrush Week 85 – 28th September 2018

BlogCrush is a weekly parenting and lifestyle blogging community and this is BlogCrush Week 85.

About BlogCrush

A linky is essentially an index page listing lots of fabulous blog posts by a whole host of different writers (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 the 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.

Featured Posts

All our linkers are very generous with their time and influence, sharing posts by other people just because it’s a nice thing to do. So, as hosts, we 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 Survival week: Childhood Phobias by Parenting Phils

Host Post

And for my own post this week, I’m linking up 3 Things Gentle Parenting IS NOT (& 3 things it is).

Before I started my own gentle parenting journey, I associated  it with wishy, washy parents whose kids ran wild. I was wrong. I love being able to raise my girls in a positive, nurturing, empowering environment rather than going down the traditional discipline routes (i.e. shouting or even smacking).

But I know a lot of people still misunderstand gentle parenting or stereotype the people who use it. So I’ve debunked some of the myths here. I hope you find it helpful 🙂
