Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic week! We did GREAT with 122 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! 🙂
Bella and I had a super busy week. She spent all week with me this time. She was feeling much better so we adventured to 3 different events this week. It was so nice to be able to spend some quality time with her, so on Tuesday we went to The O2 where we had some fun at the Sky Studios and the Nissan Innovation Station. On Thursday, it was Sienna’s 2nd birthday so when she woke up we had a little celebration. She loved opening her presents. After dropping Sienna at nursery Bella and I went to Eltham Palace & Gardens which is owned and managed by English Heritage. It has glorious gardens, an art deco house, medieval palace, fun outdoor play area and of course a delicious cafe. Finally on Friday we went to the season 2 premiere party for the Netflix children’s show, Project MC2. Bella was very lucky as she was given 2 dolls instead of one so we have 2 more to add to her very extended collection! ;-). You can see a photo of Bella at Eltham Palace below that I shared on my Instagram which I thought was very cute:
Thank you again to all the people that are using the #KCACOLS hashtag on Instagram. We have almost 200 photos there, I know it is not a lot but for me this is fantastic. I really enjoyed going through your photos. I would love 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:
The commenting was REALLY GOOD. We managed again to get 4 comments per post as a minimum which is great. Thank you so much lovely people. It is really nice to see what a beautiful community we have created! We have about 30 people commenting on more than 10 posts. This is FANTASTIC! Thank you so much.
We had 10 people that didn’t comment on the post linked up before their post. 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.
THANK YOU again to all of you that have already joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. We have 99 members (so close to 100!) so far and it has been fantastic chatting with all of you. You can join us here.
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 between 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 you know I have read and liked all your comments! I can’t comment on all of your posts because of the lack of time. However you will always receive a comment from someone on behalf of the linky (either the co-hosts or me).
I would like to say THANK YOU so much to SARAH from Arthurwears and BRIDGET from Bridie by the Sea for helping me with the commenting this week! It was the first time they co-hosted with me and they have done a great job as expected! They both have been super helpful this week. They have been FANTASTIC! I loved having 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. 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, Rachel @RachelBustin and Mainy @myrealfair
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
