BlogCrush Week 88 – 19th October 2018

Hellooo… I gasp weakly as I drag myself from the clutches of what has definitely been a very busy and highly fraught week! This is BlogCrush Week 88.

And I want to apologise from the off that I am linking up a Christmas Gift Guide! It has been such a tough week, that this is all I have to offer. I know it’s way too early, but please let me off just this once (I had deadlines to meet!).

About BlogCrush

A linky is like a menu of deliciously tempting blog posts – from Friday morning onwards, bloggers will start to add their posts (you’ll see thumbnails appear at the bottom of this post as each one is added) and you can click and be taken straight to that post. (This beginner’s linky guide is packed full of linky info and tips if you’re feeling a bit confused!).

This linky is co-hosted by myself, and Kelly from Daydreams of a Mum.

But the BlogCrush linky is extra special. On other linkies, you just add your own posts as a way to get your name “out there”. But here at BlogCrush, we want to help build up our fellow bloggers too so we ask everyone to add 1 post of their own, and 1 post that has been written by someone else.

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)

(Please Note: this is a family-friendly website. Whilst we love the range and diversity of the bloggers who link up here, Lucy At Home reserves the right to remove any posts that are deemed inappropriate at her discretion and without warning.)

  • 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 88:

Kelly’s choice is Oh by the time you read this… by Raisie Bay

Lucy’s choice is How to wear wide-legged tie-belt trousers by Passion Fruit, Paws, & Peonies

Host Post

And for my own post this week, I’m linking up 2018 Christmas Gifts for Modern Dads

I’m a planner. Money is tight in our house so I start buying Christmas presents from September onwards to spread the cost. So this is my first Christmas gift guide of the year (with a women’s edition and kid’s edition to follow in the next few weeks…!). Plus, who doesn’t like a bit of window shopping! Hehe
