BlogCrush #01: Fri 17th February


I am soooo excited to welcome you all to the first ever #BlogCrush linky party!

As I’m sat here typing, I have to admit that I’m slightly (utterly!) terrified about how it’s all going to pan out… but I guess sometimes, you just have to take a leap of faith! I would never have had the guts (or the tech-y-ness!) to do this without the help of my wonderful co-host, Wendy from Naptime Natter, and I am thrilled to be starting this new adventure with her by my side!

This Week

This week has been crazily busy, as Wendy and I have been trying to get our heads around the InLinkz software to make the BlogCrush linky possible. I’m sure it will get easier as we start to fall into a routine, but there has been a lot of head-scratching and panicked twitter DMs going back and forth over the last few days! Haha.

All that aside, we’re really looking forward to getting stuck in and reading the fab posts that you’ll be leaving here for us.

Blog Crush

BlogCrush is unlike any other linky you’ve joined before so make sure you check out the rules below on how to enter. We want to give the best posts in the blogisphere the extra love and attention that they deserve. You will be our scouts! We want you to add 1 post of your own, and 1 post from someone else’s blog (this will be your BlogCrush).

Don’t worry if someone else has added the same post as you – it will just prove how totally AWESOME that post is if it’s added twice!

Featured Posts

Every week, Wendy and I will be linking up 2 posts each; one post we have written, and one that was our favourite post from the previous BlogCrush linky party (please note: only posts linked in person are eligible for this, not the ones you add as your BlogCrush).

This week is a bit different as we don’t have a previous week to go back to, so we’ve been scouring the web to source you the best posts that the internet can offer!

    Oh my word I’ve just popped by after work… too late though- I’m so sorry I’ve missed you! Just spotted a few of my posts linked up though as BC and I just wanted to say thank you to which ever lovely people have linked them! (I’m not sure I can work out who, but thank you very muchly!) I think this is such a brilliant idea for a linky. Dawn xx

        Aw thank you so much Nicole! I did a 12 hour shift yesterday so hardly got online at all, and only on my phone which misses out chunks of twitter notifications so I haven’t caught up properly yet. Thank you so much for sharing and for your lovely comment above. Big bloggy hugs xx
