Welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a great week!! Thank you again for all your support. We did AMAZING last week with 83 link ups!! Yaaay!! 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! 🙂
I had a good week. Nothing really exciting happened to us. Thank God we seem to be all healthy for now which is a blessing. Although I know this won’t last for too long, lol. I’m so happy that Sienna is completely happy at nursery now. Since she started she has always cried when I left her and when I picked her up but since last week she has been very happy and running to hug her key carer which is lovely. We also had a parents evening for Sienna for the first time. There was not much to update us on as she has just started but one of the key things was that they confirmed to us that she was very happy and she has bonded with all the staff. She loves giving cuddles to everybody! I thought that was nice to hear!
Anyway, now back to the linky. I would like to say guys that I’m INCREDIBLY HAPPY this week with this linky as we had lots of comments!! One post even had 18 comments from this linky! How cool is that? I had people linking up on Tuesday this week and that last post had about 6 comments. Other posts at the bottom even had 8 comments. We have an average of 4 comments as a minimum for this linky. I’m working really hard to make sure that people can link up at any stage when the linky is live from Saturday to Wednesday and make sure that every single post will receive at least 2 comments. Now as I said I’m working to get 4 comments as a minimum per post. This week we had only 5 posts that had 3 comments, the remaining had between 4 and 18 comments!! That’s not bad considering we had 83 link ups and I don’t comment every single post because of lack of time. This is all because of YOU LOVELY PEOPLE that know how to be generous and spread so much love within the linky!! YOU ARE THE BEST!
This week we had 7 people that didn’t comment on the post before their post. I thought it was strange that there are a fair amount of people that actually do lots of commenting but they don’t comment on the post before theirs. PLEASE guys start with that comment first and then go around as much as you would like. I would love if you could please make an effort to follow this simple rule. I promise that it will make a difference to everybody.
I would like to remind you about using 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 back link which helps to improve your DA).
Thank you so much for all your comments to the host posts and the linky post. I read them all and I have liked them all!
IMPORTANT NOTE: From next week I will start having 2 guest co-hosts per week as it is becoming a little hard to keep it up especially because of the way I run this linky. Checking every single post and making sure that everybody follows the rules and counting each comment takes a hell of a lot of my time, plus also commenting myself, so having extra help will be refreshing!! I have already booked people until July but if you are free and would like to be my 3rd co-host please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. There are lots of slots available as I just started this, so please if you would like to do that I really need that you be fully committed to it do contact me only if you know you have the time to help.
I would like to say THANK YOU so much to CLAIRE from Tin Box Traveller for helping me with the commenting this week! She was incredibly good. I also love all those thoughtful comments she has done!! I really appreciate that!! I really enjoyed having her as a co-host! She is so lovely! CLAIRE, you are AWESOME!!! What a great guest co-host she was! 🙂
This weekend my guest co-host is again MARIA from Suburban Mum. It is always great to have her as a co-host and she will be doing it regularly once per month. Please give her some love again if you haven’t done it already. These are her social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@suburb4nmum) to your tweets as well as mine.
Please do not forget to follow and check out the #KCACOLS Pinterest Board. I 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!

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. 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’ll do a follow up.
Now let’s carry on with the linky:
Each week I will choose about 3 posts of people that have commented THE MOST or that have commented A LOT and I will feature it on my weekly #KCACOLS linky post.
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-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).
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 Maria @suburb4nmum and we will both retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
