Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a great week! I can’t believe a new month is starting now and that April has gone! Time really flies! We did FANTASTIC again last week with 114 link ups! YAAY!!! 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 more great news to share with you this week! Yesterday morning I found out that I’m also shortlisted for the BIBs (Brilliance in Blogging) awards organised by Britmums in the category of Video. I was really shocked as I honestly wasn’t expecting it at all! I’m so excited and incredibly proud of our little family blog. There are 10 blogs in each category and at this stage I’m only shortlisted. Through a public vote the 10 blogs in my category will be reduced to 5 to make the finalists, which will be announced at the end of May. If you like my blog and my videos I would be over the moon if you could spare some time to VOTE FOR US. Nick, Bella, Sienna and I will be very grateful!!! 🙂
Now to the linky. This week the commenting has again been FANTASTIC!!! I’m extremely happy that you have done lots of commenting within the linky. Again, we managed a minimum of 4 comments per post. WOOP WOOP!! Last week we did better in terms of the amount of comments in each linky post but its great that this week every single post has received the 4 comments we have been aiming for.
I honestly don’t think there is any other linky where you can get this amount of comments for your posts. I really hope you agree with me. Since starting this linky, the main purpose was to focus on the commenting. I wanted KCACOLS to be well known as a linky where you will receive the most comments. I feel so happy and proud to have been able to start this lovely community. YOU ALL ROCK! You all are actually the ones who make this linky work.
- One post had 20 comments just from this linky, so that really was fantastic!
- There were 3 other posts that had either 15 or 16 comments!
- There were 15 posts with 4 comments.
- The rest of the posts had between 5 and 20 comments!
- Also for this week, the last couple of posts that linked up (link 113 and link 114) had 5 comments each, which means that it doesn’t matter at what stage of the linky you link up, you will still receive comments. How amazing is that?
THANK YOU to all of you that love being generous and spreading lots of love! I really appreciate that! 🙂
We had 10 people that didn’t comment on the post linked up before their post. It is much better this week. Thank you so much for making an effort. Let’s keep trying to get this number down to zero! I know we can make this happen!!
Don’t forget to read the Thank You email on Thursdays where I list all the people that have commented the most so far. I also include which posts need more love to make it easier for you to comment on those which need it. Hopefully you find this to be helpful.
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, especially your kind comments regarding our MADs nomination. Thank you so much for voting for us, all your support means a lot! We really appreciate it! I 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 TRACEY from One Frazzled Mum and TORI from The Mama Nurse for helping me with the commenting this week! They have been so nice and super helpful this week. Tori even finished all of her commenting on Sunday! That was for sure the quickest co-host I have had so far, LOL! I have enjoyed co-hosting with them and I’m so happy that both of them have already booked to co-host with me again later in the year so now I’m really looking forward to having them again! They were both FANTASTIC!
My first guest co-host this week is DANIELLE from Someone’s Mum. I’m so excited to co-host with Danielle this week. This is her first time as a co-host here so I’m really looking forward to that. She has been so supportive of the linky since she started linking up and I’m really grateful for that. I’m sure most of you are familiar with her blog. She is a fantastic writer and always has lots of thought provoking posts. Please give her social media accounts some love (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@MumSomeone) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally, she has a guest co-host post, #SaturdaySiblings – Coming Soon! linked up too. If you could please go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
My second guest co-host is SARA from Handy Herbs. This is also the first time that I’m co-hosting with Sara and I’m super excited too. Sara has been linking up with us pretty much since the moment the linky started. She has the most original, healthy and super yummy recipes for kids that always include herbs. Every week I always look forward to reading a new recipe or sometimes some fun activities for kids. She is super nice and is often the first to comment on the linky post and say thank you for hosting which is super sweet of her. Please give some love to her social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@HandyHerbs) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally, she has a guest co-host post, From Planting to Plate! 8 Important Reasons To Garden & Cook With Your Kids linked up too. If you could please go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
The person who commented the most last week was JESSICA from Babi a Fi. Regulars will know Jessica’s blog. She was a co-host a few weeks ago and she has also been featured here several times. She was great last week being super generous with her commenting. She has spread so much love and I’m super happy for that!!! She was FANTASTIC! She commented on 41 posts. Thank you so much lovely, you are AMAZING! One of her posts from last week was, 50 Ways to Build Backlinks. If you haven’t read it already, you can go and check it out now! 😉
The second person who commented a lot this week was SANDY from Mommy’s Little Princesses. You also now know Sandy’s blog as she has co-hosted with me a couple of times and has also been featured here lots of times. She is always commenting a lot within this linky! Always spreading so much love around. She has commented on 36 posts which is FANTASTIC! Thank you so much SANDY, you are AMAZING! Her post from last week was Rufford Abbey Country Park…. Please go and check it out!
The third person who has commented a lot this week is NATASHA from Serenity You. This is the first time that I’m featuring Natasha. She has been linking with us for a couple of weeks but since then she has been great with her commenting. I love when new linkers quickly appreciate how #KCACOLS works and start spreading the love from early on. She has been very generous this week, commenting on 32 posts which is BRILLIANT! Thank you so much NATASHA! One of her posts from last week was, IN THE NIGHT GARDEN ALL-IN-ONE FROM ZIPPY REVIEW. Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
Behind Jessica, Sandy, and Natasha was HELEN from Justsayingmum with 31 comments, ALLYSON from Bring Mommy Coffee with 26 comments and EMMA from Island Living 365 with 20 comments. Thank you so much lovely ladies!!! 🙂
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, Danielle @MumSomeone and Sara @HandyHerbs and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
