Welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. HAPPY BONFIRE NIGHT! I hope you all had a fantastic week! We did WELL with 112 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! 🙂
THERE WILL BE NO #KCACOLS NEXT SATURDAY 12TH NOVEMBER AS I’M ATTENDING BLOGFEST SO I HAVE DECIDED TO HAVE A WEEK OFF THE LINKY SO I CAN ENJOY THAT WEEKEND. THE LINKY WILL BE BACK ON SATURDAY 19TH NOVEMBER.
We started the week celebrating Halloween and my girls went out trick or treating. It was the first time that they were doing this together and they had a fantastic time. They came back with their baskets full of sweets. Bless them! They both got dressed as Princesses and they look so cute together! My heart just melted when I saw them all dressed up! Did you also celebrate Halloween? What did you do?
Each week I love sharing a couple of photos from my week on Instagram, so here are 2 of my favourite ones:
Thank you so much for all the people that joined us last week for our #UnPocoDeTodoUK link up. We had a great week with lots of you joining! Thank you. Nicky will host the linky on Monday 7th November at 9pm until midnight on Friday 11th. The theme for next week is “PARENTS IN THE PICTURE“. This will be any photos of you with your children. 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 2,494 photos! Yay, how exciting is that? I love that it is growing every day! It is lovely to see all your photos there! 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:
I’m not tweeting individual people once the linky is live but I will tweet the people that have been featured and mentioned. I’ll also post the linky post on the Facebook Group, pin it on my Twitter account and on my Facebook page together with some generic tweets. If you could also share about it clicking the link below that would be FABULOUS!
This last link up has been GOOD! We didn’t have as many linkers than we normally do but people have been commenting much more as the number of posts that needed more love by last Thursday were less. This is always really nice to see. This week we managed to get 4 comments per post! Yay! That is awesome! I was looking for this to happen again. Thank you so much for all your support!
We had people that didn’t comment the post before theirs which always cause an issue with the counting. If you have commented on the post already from another linky please come back and say that you are back from this linky so then I can count your comment. Or if there is any other problem please let me know. I also have some people that linked up and run. I hate this! You are not welcome back to this linky if you behave like that!
PLEASE Remember to approve your comments and check your SPAM folders
Also, please remember that I’m expecting a minimum of 5 comments per person (1 host, 3 co-hosts and the post before yours) and if you link up 2 posts I would expect 6 comments as a minimum per person (1 host, 3 co-hosts, the posts before yours and 1 more )
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. Finally, do not forget to add the linky badge.
THANK YOU to all of you that have joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. You can join us here. Also if you do join, please send me a direct message with the name of your blog so then I know who you are without having to figure out 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).

For this week’s linky I am linking up Celebrating Britain’s Super Powers With npower and Family Trip To Durham with Virgin Trains East Coast 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 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, Emma @meandbmaketea and Maddy @MaddyLeigh1994 and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
