Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic week! We did GREAT with 125 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 24th September because I’m away in France from Friday 23rd to Monday 26th September (We will be back on Saturday 1st October). This is my best blogging opportunity so far and I’m so excited about it! This for sure will be a trip that I will remember forever, so as you can imagine I won’t be able to manage #KCACOLS that week. It would have been too much for me and also I don’t even know how my connectivity will be. Also I would like to enjoy this fantastic opportunity! I will be keeping you updated about my experience through my social media.
As most of you know, last night was the MAD Blog Awards at the Royal Garden Hotel in London. It was an amazing night and I loved meeting so many of you! We were Finalists in the “Best use of video” category. As expected we didn’t win but it was okay as I didn’t expect it anyway. Emma from Brummy Mummy of 2 was the winner and she really deserved it. She is amazing! Now I’m hoping to have more luck at the Mumsnet Blogging Awards. Please VOTE for us! 😉
It was a great night and Nick celebrated his 40th birthday in style too. I was so pleased to see him having a good time! I wore a Ted Baker dress that I got to review for this event and I was so happy for the opportunity. You can see a photo I shared on Instagram below of me wearing the dress ready for the awards. What do you guys think?
Thank you so much for all the people that have joined us this week for our 2nd #UnPocoDeTodoUK link up. We had a fantastic week with lots of you joining us! Thank you. Tracey will host the linky on Monday 18th September which now will open at 9 pm until Friday 23rd at midnight. The theme for next week is “Outdoors/Nature/Objects” so I hope lots of you can join us this week too!
And of course, thank you so much for using the #KCACOLS hashtag on Instagram for all your photos. We have 1,234 photos there which are fantastic! I really enjoy going through your photos! 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:
This last link up has been FANTASTIC! I’m so pleased to say that all the posts that linked up last week had 4 comments or more! HURRAH! I’m so happy that we are back to that standard! These new changes are working and I’m super excited about that! Just remember that from now on people will have until Friday night to comment so I can have all updated for the Saturday new linky post on Friday night.

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, Maria @suburb4nmum, Jen @PracticalByD and Kerry @blissfulkerry and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
