Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a great couple of weeks!! Thank you again for all your support. We did GREAT last time with 83 link ups!! THANK YOU ALL so much for being part of this linky! 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 more about this linky from the #KCACOLS linky page! 🙂
I hope you are enjoying having your children around or maybe you are like me and you are just counting the days for the break to end soon, LOL! Bella’s school holidays are for 3 weeks which is a LOT! I was actually lucky because Bella is spending this week at her grandparents so I’ve just had Sienna to take care of which makes things easier, although the little one can be very demanding!
As some of you know from my Thank You email sent a week a go, we lost our beautiful Persian cat Kiyan and we have been incredibly sad at home. Going away last weekend helped us to be away from the house because it is just so difficult no longer seeing him in all the places he liked to be in each corner of our home. We received his ashes today and we plan to spread them together with his brother’s ashes in an open green, beautiful and peaceful area so we can get some closure. It is never nice to lose a pet! Kiyan we miss you a lot and you will be always in our hearts! 🙁
Now to the linky. This week the commenting was not very good. I hope I can blame this on the fact that it has been Easter and that we are in the middle of the school holidays! Fingers crossed it is that! Having said that there were still some posts that had up to 13 comments from this linky which is amazing. This time there were 10 posts with 3 comments. The rest of the posts had between 4 and 13 comments! Also for this week the last couple of posts linked up had 5 comments each which is really good. THANK YOU to all of you that love being generous and spreading lots of love!! Let’s try to do more of this and hope this new week is better than ever!
We had 10 people that didn’t comment on the post before their post which made me very sad as we were improving this number every week!! 🙁 Please guys let’s try to reduce this number. Do your best to follow the rules so we will all benefit from this. This is the only way for this linky to work. PLEASE always remember to start with the comment of the post linked up before yours first and then go around as much as you would like. Also, for new people that link up this week please 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. I read them all and I have liked them all!
CO-HOSTING: If you would like to co-host with me you need to first be a regular to this linky and know all the rules.

Please do not forget to follow and check out the #KCACOLS Pinterest Board. We have pinned all your posts from the last 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, Sandy @Sandy_heard and Clare @sonssandandsauv we will both retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting on your posts!! 🙂
