Welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEEKEND! I hope you all had a fantastic week! We did GOOD with 119 link ups! It was not as good as we normally do but I will blame it to Half Term as it is not easy to blog when you have your kids around! Anyway, 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! 🙂
Our week was again not the best. As many of you already know we had an ill house this week. The flu and stomach bug hit our house. Not the best to be honest so we couldn’t do anything for half term. I had to cancel about 3 events that we had planned for the week. Thankfully yesterday the girls were feeling better and they could go with my MIL to Sienna’s nursery to celebrate Halloween! Sienna dressed up as a BAT and had so much fun with her little friends. They had a great party but the thing they enjoyed the most was the cake of course, LOL!
Each week, I’m sharing a couple of my latest photos from my week on Instagram:
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. Nadia will host the linky on Monday 31st October at 9pm until midnight on Friday 4th November. The theme for next week is “THINGS WE LOVE“. They can be anything you want, so I hope lots of you can join us! We have a new co-host!
Also, thank you so much for using the #KCACOLS hashtag on Instagram for all your photos. We have 2,203 photos! Yay! I love to see all of your photos there! It would be great if we all also spread some love there! 🙂
NOW BACK TO THE LINKY:
LINKY TWEETS –
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 the linky post on the Facebook Group, pin it on my Twitter account and on my Facebook page. I’ll also do some 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 FABULOUS!
This last link up has NOT been very GOOD! We didn’t get a super amount of comments and the highest amount of comments from the top commenter was not as high as what we normally have, but I think this is due to it being half term. Also I was not feeling very well to chase people so I guess that could be another factor. A lot of people have not commented on the post linked up before theirs which as you already know affects the counting BIG TIME. Unfortunately, all posts didn’t get the minimum 4 comments. Some of them are due to the fact that people don’t approve their pending comments or check their SPAM comment folders. I know for sure some comments have been done so it is not easy for me if the comments are not approved.
Please let’s try to reduce the amount of people that do not comment on the post before theirs. 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. If there is any other problem please let me know. Very soon I will be sending an email to the people that have not commented so then those comments will not be missing again. I hope this works. I’m working on this at the moment. Also, remember that people have until Friday night to comment unless I say otherwise.
PLEASE Remember to approve your comments and check your SPAM folders
Also, 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 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 🙂
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 A Fun Day With Model Vogue Williams & Regatta Outdoors and Halloween Poundworld Makeup Challenge 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, Maria @suburb4nmum, Rachel @RachelBustin and Nadia @scandimummy and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
