Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic week! We did REALLY AMAZING last week with 129 link ups! AGAIN our BEST EVER! HURRAH for that!! 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! 🙂
First of all, I would like to say THANK YOU so much to all of you that have joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. We have 51 members so far and it has been fantastic chatting with you and getting to you know even more all of you who have joined this week. If you haven’t joined us yet, what are you waiting for? Join us now! I would love to have you all there! Join us here
I’ve updated my linky image this week in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday – Happy Birthday Ma’am! We had lovely weather last Sunday. We went to The London Aquarium and had so much fun. They have refurbished it since we last visited a few years ago and have also opened a couple of new sections which in my opinion are really worth going to see. They had a Mr Maker creative area for kids where Bella and Sienna got to make some aquarium related crafts – they made some jellyfish. I will be writing a post about it soon. To get you into the mood of the aquarium I have shared below this lovely photo from my Instagram this week. I didn’t do anything else exciting this week, I just tried to catch up with my backlog as much I could although I’m still behind! The story of my life, LOL!
Now back to the linky. The commenting was REALY GOOD this week. I’m so pleased to see people coming back to the linky spreading so much love and commenting a lot. You guys are AMAZING. Not considering the host and co-host’s posts, we have about 14 people commenting on more than 20 posts. Also for another week we managed to reach 4 comments as a minimum per week! These numbers are FANTASTIC! Thank you so much.
We had 13 people that didn’t comment on the post linked up before their post. We are up a little bit so let’s try to be better this week. 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. Also, please do not link up and run. This week I got a handful of people that have done this and I absolutely hate it. I will have to remove you if you don’t take part in the linky and follow the rules. It is just too unfair to the other people that have followed all the rules and commented a lot.
Thank you guys for continuing to read the Thank You email on Thursdays. I managed to actually send it on Thursday this week, Yaay! It was quite late though – I will try my best to send it earlier next week.
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 go and 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 EMMA from Island Living 365 and AZARIA from Being Mrs Lynch for helping me with the commenting this week! They have been AMAZING! Emma was super quick. She did all her comments and even more by Monday. Azaria was also super helpful this week finishing all her section by Wednesday. As I mentioned before in the Thank You email, we had problems with the Pinterest Board and they had to pin all your posts twice. They were so nice and lovely! I had a good time co-hosting with them. They were both FANTASTIC! 🙂
My first guest co-host this week is NICKY from Not Just the 3 of Us OMG, I have been waiting for this day to arrive as I really want to co-host with Nicky. It is the first time that she is co-hosting with me. I told you before that I met her at the #petalparty event and she is just amazing so I’m really looking forward to this week. She has always been a supporter of this linky and I really appreciate that. I love her blog. She is always sharing interesting subjects and it is very entertaining. Please give some love to her social media accounts (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets so please add her twitter handle (@nickykentisbeer) to your tweets as well as mine.

The person who commented the most last week was SARAH from Mumzilla. It is so nice to see Sarah at the top of the comments a lot. It is so nice of her considering she has her own linky too. I really don’t know how she does it! Sarah has been featured and mentioned several times so I think most of you must be familiar with her blog. She has been super generous this week, commenting on 47 posts which is BRILLIANT! Thank you so much SARAH! One of her posts from last week was, The Inner Monologue Of *That* Conversation. Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
The second person who commented a lot this week was REBECCA from Taylor-made-ramblings. This is the first time that I’m featuring Rebecca and guess what? She has only joined us for the first time last week. I love when we have new people joining us for the first time and then they are the ones that do the best commenting. She has been amazing this week! She commented on 42 posts which is BRILLIANT! Thank you so much REBECCA! Her post from last week was Families are…. Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
The third person who has commented a lot this week was ALI from Ali’s Up Side Down World. This is the first time that I’m featuring Ali. She has been linking with us for a month or more and since then she has been great with her commenting. I have mentioned Ali before but she has never been featured. I’m so excited as she has been really good at spreading lots of love this week! She commented on 41 posts!!! That is FANTASTIC! Thank you so much ALI, you are A STAR! Her post from last week was Bournemouth Wheels Festival 2016. If you haven’t read it already, go and check it out now!

For this week’s linky I am linking up an amazing event I attended, “#EstimationNation Baking Challenge with Smart Energy GB“ and a debating post “Are Our Kids Missing Out On Childhood?“, 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, Nicky @nickykentisbeer and Rachel @RachelBustin and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
