Hola chicos, welcome back to another week of my linky #KCACOLS (KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON LINKING SUNDAY!). Thank you again for all your support. We had 60 link ups!! THANK YOU so much for being part of this linky! For all the new people joining us this week I really hope you like #KCACOLS and that you come back again next time!
PLEASE READ BELOW
This will be my last #KCACOLS linky post for 2015!!! I can’t believe its Christmas next week and that the year is nearly over! I have decided that I need a break. It has been 2 intense months hosting this linky so this will be a well needed break. Also, as some of you already know from my “Thank You” email sent last Wednesday, I have been ill for the whole week! It has been horrible. I had a cold with fever together with a nasty stomach bug. The mix of both together has really sent me straight to bed and I have been completely useless all week. Thank God I feel much better today and I had a #KCACOLS commenting marathon today, so all is now done.
I will be having 2 weekends off so the next #KCACOLS post will be live on Saturday 9th January 2016! I hope to see you all there with all the new energy for the start of the new year!! I would like to wish you, the lovely #KCACOLS community, a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2016!
Anyway, now back to the linky. Again, thank you so much for still taking the time to comment. I want to mention also that the comments are proper comments, very honest and thoughtful which I’m very grateful for as I love to see that we actually care about each other in this little community as each weekend we tend to read about each other’s life so we are excited to see what is the next chapter about each other. At least this is the way I feel. I hope you feel the same way too!!! It is so nice to see that a couple of posts had 11 and 13 comments each from this linky which is amazing. About 2 posts got 8 comments, another 2 posts got 7 comments and then pretty much the rests varies with 4 to 6 comments. The lowest are a couple with 3 comments just from this linky!! How AWESOME is that!!! I’m so excited and grateful to have such a fantastic group of people joining! You are all amazing!!
ALTHOUGH again for this week I had a few people that linked up and ran, leaving no comments at all. 🙁 This makes me sad and as we all know this is not the purpose of this linky! #KCACOLS is all about spreading the love! Also I had about 6 people that haven’t commented on the post linked before them. Being unwell, I haven’t had the time to remind people about it this week and was only today able to catch up with the commenting. I’ll be reminding people directly to comment on the post linked up before them again in the New Year.
I would like to say THANK YOU so much to ELLIE from Hand Me Down Baby for helping me with last week’s commenting. OMG she really was very helpful and she even was so kind to offer to comment some of the posts allocated to me. She was a blessing for me!! I don’t think I would’ve made it if it wouldn’t be for her. Ellie, you have been AMAZING!!! What a great guest co-host she was!! 🙂
This weekend my guest co-host is CHARLOTTE from The Mummy Toolbox. Please give her some love. These are her social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest & Google+). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@TheMummyToolbox) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally she has a guest co-host post, Introducing The 12 Days of Fitmas linked up too. Please if you could go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
The second person who has commented the most for this week is the MADDY from The Speed Bump. She is always one of the people who is always a regular commentator in this linky and she is also always spreading so much love which is FANTASTIC! She commented 24 posts. Thank you so much lovely! Her post from last week was Butlins Day One. She tells about her journey towards Butlins where a few things happens. If you want to know more, please go back to her post and give her more love if you can!
I just wanted to mention that just behind Sandy and Maddy was Jessica from Babi a Fi and Tracey from One Frazzled Mum with 23 comments, and then I have Sara from Handy Herbs with 18 comments, and Fiona from Coombe Mill with 16 comments, Thank you so much lovely ladies!!! 🙂
Please do not forget to follow and check out the #KCACOLS Pinterest Board. I have pinned all your posts from last week so please go and have a look. There are some great posts that deserve a read!
Finally, I would like to remind you again about the main rule (commenting on the post previous to yours) to make it fair for all. Most of you have done it but unfortunately there are still a few that haven’t followed the rule. 🙁 Please do your best to remember this and also to add the #KCACOLS hashtag when you comment on the other posts. If you don’t receive a comment from the person that has linked up next to you, please let me know as I’m now contacting the person owing the comment with a reminder so they don’t forget to do this.
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. I don’t think its very fair to link up your own linky to someone else’s linky just for the sake of it. If you want to promote a new linky you are welcome to do this but just once and I expect you to put my badge or a link to my linky and of course to follow the rules regarding commenting. Not just a link up and run.
Now let’s carry on with the linky:
Each week I will choose the post of the person who has commented the most and I will feature it on my weekly “KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON LINKING SUNDAY” (#KCACOLS) linky post. To link up simply grab the badge and link up your old or new posts. As usual there are some rules that you need to follow in order to make this linky work for all of us. Please see below:
1. Be sure to grab the “Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday” – #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.
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-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-host and one from others). This is a really important rule which I need you to follow, otherwise this linky will not work. We should be spreading the love by sharing. This is the only way that a linky party can be beneficial for all.
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 and to Charlotte @TheMummyToolbox and we will both retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
