Welcome back to #KCACOLS. We had 16 linkups last time! 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 on the #KCACOLS linky page! 🙂
Please remember that this linky is all about commenting hence the reward of being featured. I cannot chase people individually. That is why I send the “Thank You Email” so people can check the list and make sure if they have been mentioned so they can go back to the linky and comment.
ALSO, PLEASE remember to comment on the co-hosts and host posts. We are allowed to change our posts on the following Saturday after the linky is live. So, please be aware of these changes during the second week. There are a lot of people that are skipping the first 4 posts which is very disappointing. These posts are part of the required comments, so please don’t skip them.
Remember that FRIDAY NIGHT is the deadline for all comments.
We have finally been hit by Covid in our house. My eldest tested positive at the start of the week and then I got it at the end of the week. Thankfully, Nick and Sienna haven’t got it and we pray that it stays that way. I haven’t felt very well to be honest. I had a very high temperatures and felt extremely tired. But thankfully, I didn’t have problems with my breathing. I am starting to feel a little bit better from today so I hope I am on my way out now. Bella only felt unwell for a couple of days and she is now back to normal which is a relief too. Now we have to isolate for 10 days. Wish us luck!
Each linkup, I love sharing a photo from my last 2 weeks on Instagram, so here is my favourite:
KCACOLS CROWD FACEBOOK GROUP
THANK YOU to all of you that have joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. 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 🙂
NOW BACK TO THE LINKY

We had 16 linkups! A little bit sad that we had fewer linkers this time. On Thursday we had 9 posts that needed more comments. By Friday night (deadline for commenting) we managed to reduce this number to 6 posts.
Regarding the people that have not commented on the post before theirs, we had 2 people that haven’t done the commenting and 1 person that missed the hashtag. By Friday night, unfortunately, nothing change which is a shame.
Also, remember to comment on the co-hosts posts. Please also be aware that I’m BLOCKING URLs/Emails of people that have joined the linky and have not commented on any posts for consecutive weeks. If you find I have blocked you by mistake, please contact me.
I also wanted to say that I will need all your comments to be done by Friday as I won’t be doing any counting on Saturdays anymore. So Friday Night will be the deadline for all comments from now on.
The linky will be open for 2 weeks until the second Wednesday at 8 pm or until we reach 100 link ups, whichever comes first.
The co-hosts and I will be allowed to change our posts on the following Saturday after the linky is live. Please be aware of these changes during the second week.
I would suggest that you link up one post each week so you will be able to share something different and current each week. I will also be more strict regarding commenting on the post before yours.
I’m not tweeting individual people once the linky is live but I will tweet the people that have been featured and mentioned. I’ll also post a link to the new linky post on the KCACOLS Facebook Group, pin it on my Twitter account and on my Facebook page together with some generic tweets. I will of course, email all of you the link. If you could also share it by clicking the link below that would be FABULOUS!
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW LINKERS:
PLEASE START by commenting on the post linked up before yours FIRST and then comment on any other posts as much as you would like. Also, use the hashtag #KCACOLS when commenting (this is very important so I can see how many comments you are doing and then 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. We will do our best for you to receive a comment from someone on behalf of the linky (either the co-hosts or me).
GUEST CO-HOSTS FROM THE PREVIOUS LINK UP
GUEST CO-HOSTS FOR THIS LINKUP
My first guest co-host this week is NATALIE from Confessions Of A Crummy Mummy. I am so excited to have Natalie as my co-host this week for the first time. Natalie joined this linky when we started it, so a few years ago. She has always been a regular linker and very supportive which is lovely. She has had a little break from the linky, so it is now really nice to have her back and even more to be able to have her as my co-host for the first time. Natalie has a parenting blog and she shares her adventures as a mother of 4. She is a freelance journalist and lives by the sea in Hove, East Sussex. She spends quite a lot of time on or near the beach or at her allotment. Please give some love to her social media accounts which are (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her Twitter handle (@mrsnataliebrown) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally, she has a guest co-host post, BIG news: I’ve written a book! linked up too. Please if you could go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!
My second guest co-host this week is JADE from The Autism Page. Jade helps me with the linky on a regular basis which is lovely. Jade is a married mum of two boys (5 & 3). She is based in the West Country between Bristol and Bath. She has a parenting blog where she shares information and resources related to autism that has been helpful to them since her eldest child was diagnosed at 2 years old. She also has another blog The Breakfast Page where she writes about breakfasts at home, review breakfasts when she is out as well as cookbook reviews. I am looking forward to co-hosting with her. Please give her social media accounts some love (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her Twitter handle (@theautismpage) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally, she has a guest co-host post, 101 Sensory Supports To Try? linked up too. If you could please go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!
Note: Just a quick note to mention that Jade from The Autism Page was within the top with 6 comments but because she is a co-host this week I am featuring Clare who was after her)
FEATURED POSTS – TOP 3
The first person who commented a lot was SAM from This is Where it is At It is great to have Sam within the top 3 commenters again. It is really nice to be able to feature her again.

FEATURED POSTS – TOP 6
For this week’s linkup, I am linking up My Favourite Items To Wear When Needing A Confidence Boost and Wear Em Out – Sustainable Period Wear so I hope you like it! 😉
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:
Every 2 weeks I will choose 6 people who have commented A LOT on the linky. Three will be featured and another three will be mentioned in my fortnightly Saturday linky post. This means that 6 people will get a backlink on my new linky post every other Saturday!
1. Be sure to grab the #KCACOLS badge, which is 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. I recommend you to link up one post each week to get the most of the linky.
3. Any subject is welcomed but please keep it family-friendly. No graphic violence, explicit sexual content, etc. 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).
- the guest co-hosts posts.
- 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 other Saturday from 10 pm and will remain open until the following 2nd Wednesday at 08.00 pm or until we reach 100 link ups, whichever comes first.
6. If you would like us to tweet your post that is absolutely fine, just tweet your link to me @WithFranca, NATALIE @mrsnataliebrown and JADE @theautismpage and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting on your posts!! 🙂
