Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic week! We did FANTASTIC again with 130 link ups! This is great after returning to normal with the linky live for one week. THANK YOU ALL so much for being part of the linky! I really appreciate your support. For new people joining us this week, I really hope you like #KCACOLS and that you come back again next time! You can also find out more about this linky in the #KCACOLS linky page! 🙂
I have been enjoying watching the tennis for the past 2 weeks. I love tennis and I have always been fun of Wimbledon. I’m so excited to watch the final tomorrow. I really hope Andy wins. I will be glued to my television! I’m sure it will be a great match to watch. This week has been crazy. I was invited to 7 events but only managed to go to 5. It was physically impossible to go to all of them! I ended up exhausted by the end of week. I walked a lot as well and used the incorrect shoes so had 2 huge blisters in my feet. They are painful, :-(. One of the events that I attended was with Tefal and I was so happy to see some familiar faces like Maria, Sarah from Mumzilla, Abi and Katy. We had a great time and the cooker that they were promoting was genius. I think it will resolve all my problems and I will be able to say good bye to our frozen meal! Check this photo that I shared on Instagram – if you like cooking gadgets like me, I’m sure you’ll agree that it looks amazing. Watch this space as a review is coming soon.
Now back to the linky. The commenting was GOOD. On Wednesday there were about 44 posts that needed more comments. Then, after the Thank You email was sent and I posted in the Facebook group it was reduced to 16 posts. This morning I posted again in the Facebook group and as a result it looks like we managed again to have a minimum 4 comments per post for the week. This is only possible because of you guys. You really care and want this community to actually work so we all benefited from this. I feel incredibly proud of this amazing community. You guys ROCK! We have about 14 people commenting on more than 20 posts. This is BRILLIANT! Thank you so much.
We had 10 people that didn’t comment on the post linked up before their post. If you have any problems commenting on the post before yours please just send me a message and I will do my best to help. AGAIN, please do not link up and run. Also please do not forget to approve your comments.
Thank you guys for continuing to read the Thank You email on Thursdays/Fridays. I love that you take the time to check which posts need more love. We have such an amazing community! 🙂
THANK YOU again to all of you that have already joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. We have 86 members so far and it has been fantastic chatting with all of you. You can join us here.
NOTE: If you receive a lot of comments, try to reciprocate to the ones that have taken the time to comment on your post. It is all about being generous between each other and spreading lots of love.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW LINKERS: PLEASE start with commenting on the post linked up before yours first and then go around commenting as much as you would like. Also, use the hashtag #KCACOLS when commenting (this is indeed very important so I can then see how many comments you are doing and then be able to feature you in my linky post which is always great for you as you get a backlink which helps improve your DA).
Thank you so much for all your comments on the host posts and the linky post. As you know I have read and liked all your comments! I can’t comment on all of your posts because of the lack of time. However you will always receive a comment from someone on behalf of the linky (either the co-hosts or me).
I would like to say THANK YOU so much to SANDY from Mommy’s Little Princesses and CLARE from Sons, Sand and Sauvignon for helping me with the commenting this week! They have been AMAZING! This is the second time I have had them both together and it has been fantastic as expected. They have been so supportive. It is always nice to co-host with people that have co-hosted before as we all know exactly what we need to done. As always I really enjoyed co-hosting with them. They were both FANTASTIC! 🙂
My first guest co-host this week is JESSICA from Babi a Fi. This is the second time that I’m having Jessica co-hosting this linky! I’m sure you all know her linky by now as she always comments a lot and therefore she has been featured and mentioned lots of times. In fact this week she has commented so much that she was second (45 comments) but because she is co-hosting this week and I’m mentioning this here, I thought to give the opportunity to another person to also be mentioned. She has been a regular of this linky since it started and I always love having her here! Please give her some love on her social media accounts which are (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@jess__powell) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally she has a guest co-host post, Catch the Bus Week with Stagecoach linked up too. Please if you could go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
My second guest co-host for this week is LUCY from R is for Hoppit. I’m very happy to have Lucy again this week. This will be her second time co-hosting KCACOLS too which is lovely! She actually co-hosted with Jessica before so it is nice to have them both co-hosting together again. Lucy links up with us every week which is lovely. It is always a pleasure to have her. Please give her some love. These are her social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@sillymummy88) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally she has a guest co-host post, Toddler Photography (Toddler Lessons: Part Seven) linked up too. Please if you could go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
The person who commented the most last week was JENNI from Odd Socks and Lollipops. This is the first time that I’m featuring Jenni. This is the second week that she has linked up with us and I’m so pleased to have her as one of my top commenters! She has been great with her commenting. I love having new people that comment a lot. I think they bring all the right energy to this linky. She has been very generous this week, commenting on 51 posts which is BRILLIANT! Thank you so much JENNI! One of her posts from last week was, TEN THINGS I’VE LOVED – JUNE. Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
The second person who commented a lot this week was JOANNE from Opposable Thumbs Blog This is also the first time that I’m featuring JOANNE. She has just joined us for the first time this week and I thought it was fantastic that she is already one of out top commentator. As I mentioned before, I love this! It is really nice to see a new linker understanding that well how this linky works. She has been very generous this week, commenting on 35 posts which is FANTASTIC! Thank you so much JOANNE! One of her posts from last week was, My new book – Twitter for Journalists, Authors and Bloggers Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
The third person who has commented a lot this week was MAINY from Myrealfairy. This is the second time that I’m featuring Mainy. She has also been mentioned several times before. She has been linking with us for a few months now and she has always been amazing with her commenting. She is lovely as she is always sharing lots of the posts on Twitter that have been linked up at KCACOLS. I thought that this was the proper #bloggerlove spirit! She has done great this week sharing the love, commenting on 34 posts which is AMAZING! Thank you so much MAINY! Her post from last week was The Promise…can it be broken? Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!

For this week’s linky I am linking a post about that I love writing about, The Great British Tennis Weekend #GBTW and a yummy post about a delivery service of ready meals for kids, Piccolo Plates – Homemade Children’s Food Delivery Service so I hope you like them! 😉
Please do not forget to follow and check out the #KCACOLS Pinterest Board. We have pinned all your posts from last week’s linky so please go and have a look. There are some great posts that deserve a read!
Now let’s carry on with the linky:
Each week I will choose 6 people who have commented A LOT within the linky. Three will be featured and another three will be mentioned on my Saturday linky post. This means that 6 people will get a back link on my new linky post each Saturday!
1. Be sure to grab the #KCACOLS badge which can be found below or on my sidebar. Simply copy the code from the box below the badge and add it to the text/html at the bottom of your post or place it on your blog sidebar.
2. You can link up to 2 posts per week.
3. You can share anything that you would like. It is open to absolutely any subject and also you can link up posts that are old or new. You are allowed to link up another linky ONLY if it is a promotional post about the linky and you can do this only once and I expect you to put my badge or a link to my linky and of course to follow the rules regarding commenting.
4. Comment on one of the hosts posts (choose one that you would like to comment on as I will be linking up 2 posts every week if possible). Then comment the guest co-hosts. Then comment on the post which is linked up immediately before yours and finally any other post that you would like to comment on. That way everybody receives at least two comments (one from the host/guest co-hosts and one from others).
5. This linky will be open every Saturday from 10 pm and will remain open until Wednesday at 11.59 pm.
6. If you would like us to tweet your post that is absolutely fine, just tweet your link to me @WithFranca, Jessica @jess__powell and Lucy @sillymummy88 and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
