Welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic week! We did GREAT with 127 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! 🙂
I had a poorly baby this week. Sienna has had (and still has) a very heavy cough with fever this week. I’m always very surprised at how strong she is because even though she is poorly she is always in a good mood (well sort of). I suffered a lot with hayfever this week too. I’m not sure what has triggered it so badly but I really suffered. Ah, I almost forgot, I had some of the best news ever! I have been invited to an International Blogger Conference in Paris at the end of November EFluent where everything will be included! I will be going with 14 other bloggers from the UK. I don’t know much about it apart from being super excited! Yay! I will keep you updated!
As you know I always like sharing a couple of photos from my week on Instagram, so here are 2 of my favourite ones:

My little Sienna is looking bigger and bigger every day. I can't believe she is 2 already! She is now following in her sister's footsteps and doing a great job when modeling outfits. She was showing off this cool rabbit onesie from @regattaoutdoors. That day was so cold that it was perfect for her to wear it because she was so warm cozy and very cute! 😉 x
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. I enjoyed hosting the linky. Tracey will host the linky on Monday 24th October at 9pm until midnight on Friday 28th. The theme for next week is “FOOD“. They can be of anything food related like for example. photos of your children eating, dishes from restaurants, meals you cook, food you love, eating out, anything you like! So I hope lots of you can join us! We also have some changes.
Thank you so much too for using the #KCACOLS hashtag on Instagram for all your photos. We have 2,127 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:
LINKY TWEETS – As I mentioned last week. I’m not tweeting individual people once the linky is live from this week, but I will tweet to 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. I will also do generic tweets, so I hope this will be enough to spread the word about the linky. If you could also share about it clicking the link below that would be fab! Thank you in advance!
This last link up has been FANTASTIC! The commenting have been really good. I only had about 3 posts yesterday that needed more commenting which have been now commented on so that made me very happy. This means that we finally (after a couple of failing weeks) managed to have 4 comments per post! Yay! That is awesome! I was looking for this to happen again and we did it this week. Thank you so much for all your support!
HOWEVER, we had the highest number of posts this week that didn’t receive a comment from the person that has linked up after them. We have about 27 posts that are missing that type of comment and I don’t like it. 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. From next week I will be sending a detailed email to the people that have not commented so then those comments will not be missing again. I hope this works.
Remember to approve your comments and check your spam folders. Also, remember that from now on people will have until Friday night to comment unless I say otherwise.
This week, again we have people that have commented less than 5 posts. 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 again to all of you that have already joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. We have 136 members now and it is always fantastic to chat with all of you. 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 My Day at LivingEtc House Tours 2016 and 5 Ideas to Keep Your Home Safe When Travelling Away 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, Danielle @MumSomeone and Jade @Paren
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
