Welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic couple of weeks! We did GREAT with 132 link ups! 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! 🙂
As most of you know I was away on a press trip to France for 4 days last weekend, hence why there was no #KCACOLS last week. It was one of the most AMAZING experiences I have ever had as a blogger. I couldn’t believe my luck. Every minute I was thinking that it was a dream and asking to please not pinch me if it was as I didn’t want to wake up, LOL! The scenery, the journey, the company, the accommodation and the people were wonderful! I loved it and I hope for more opportunities like this to come. You can see below a couple of photos from my trip I shared on Instagram:

Sandy will host the linky on Monday 3rd October at 9 pm until Friday 6th at midnight. The theme for next week is “Things We Love” so I hope lots of you can join us!
Thank you so much too for using the #KCACOLS hashtag on Instagram for all your photos. We have 1,632 photos there now which are fantastic! I really enjoy going through your photos! I would love it if more of you could also use the hashtag for your photos and of course it would be even better if we all also spread some love there! 🙂
NOW BACK TO THE LINKY:
This last link up has been FANTASTIC! I’m so pleased to say that all the posts that linked up last week had 4 comments or more! HURRAH! I’m so happy! Just remember that from now on people will have until Friday night to comment so I can have all updated for the Saturday new linky post on Friday night.
Please do not forget to comment on the post before yours. 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. And finally, do not forget to add the badge.
THANK YOU again to all of you that have already joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. We have 126 members now and it is always fantastic to chat with all of you. You can join us here. Also if you do please send me a direct message with the name of your blog so then I know who you are I spend lots of time trying to figure out which is your blog name.
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 with 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 always, I have read and liked all your comments! We would do our best for you to receive a comment from someone on behalf of the linky (either the co-hosts or me).

FEATURED POSTS – TOP 3
The person who commented the most this week was ANN from Rainbows Are Too Beautiful. This is the first time that I’m featuring Ann. I’m really happy to have her as my top commentator because she has been one of our regulars linkers for a while and one week she even emailed me because she felt she didn’t comment enough due to personal reasons which is understandable but she promised she will do better next time. And so she did it! She not even commented more than usual, she actually smashed the commenting this week and got to the top! Wow this is awesome and I’m so grateful to have linkers like her at #KCACOLS. She has done a FANTASTIC job this week commenting on 80 posts! That is AMAZING! Thank you so much, ANN! One of her posts from last week was, Can a blog post matter or make a difference. Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
The second person who commented the most last week was KIRSTY from Winnettes. It is so nice to see Kirsty within my top commentators too. She has been linking with us for a few months now and it was lovely to see her here for the first time. She was GREAT commenting on 52 posts! Thank you so much, KIRSTY! One of her posts from last week was, Our Date Nights Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
The third person who commented a lot this week was EMMA from Emma Plus Three. It is so nice to see Emma again within my top commentators. She was our second top commentator in the last link up so it is fantastic to see her back this week too. She was GREAT commenting on 43 posts! Thank you so much, EMMA! One of her posts from last week was, Our Weekend at the Sherwood Hideaway Please go to her post and give her more love if you can
FEATURED POSTS – TOP 6
Behind Ann, Kirsty and Emma were THERESE from The ERF Mission with 41 comments, MADELINE from This Glorious Life with 34 comments and KAT from Candyfloss & Dreams with 33 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 backlink 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 and the monthly co-host. 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, Tracey @frazzledmumblog, Cecile @FrenchieMummy and Sam @MouseMoo_MeToo and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
