Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic week! We did FANTASTIC as usual with 121 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! 🙂
As you all know I had a little bit of a break from the linky. I really needed some time to focus on my blog as it was left very behind, so I wasn’t on a blogging break, just a linky break. I actually enjoyed not having to worry about preparing everything for the linky and my weekend was much more pleasant! Don’t get me wrong though, I love this linky and despite enjoying the time off so much I really missed you guys so this week I’m so happy to be back! 🙂
I can’t believe that this will be the last link up of July! It is amazing how fast the time has passed! We are now in the summer holidays trying to entertain our kids. This can be a difficult job sometimes. I hope you all manage to get the most of the holidays and good luck with it too, LOL!
I also wanted to mention that you are all free to use the KCACOLS hashtag on Instagram. I’m more than happy to keep sharing the love there too. We could all use it as a boost for all your photos so we can all keep helping each other. This is separate to #UnPocoDeTodo. The #KCACOLS will be more as a generic support for all your photos. Like when you use #mummybloggers or #daddybloggers in your photos. We can all go and search for the hashtag and like and comment the photos that are there. This is of course not a new idea at all as I have seen it a lot lately but it is always good to have more hashtags to use especially if you promote your posts on Instagram too. I hope this helps! 🙂
NOW BACK TO THE LINKY:
The commenting was SUPER AMAZING. I have seen a lot of people commenting a lot this week. That really makes me super happy as no matter how big the linky is we still manage to spread so much love! On our second week we didn’t need any more commenting as every single post had 4 comments as a minimum and much more. It is just FANTASTIC. You guys really ROCK! I just cannot stop saying how grateful I am to have you as part of this community which works JUST because of YOU. Without your love and support KCACOLS will mean nothing. I feel so excited about this little community that we have created. Thank You so much to all of you that are part of this linky. We have about 37 people commenting on more than 10 posts. This is BRILLIANT! Thank you so much.
We had 5 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 guys for continuing to read the Thank You email on Thursdays. I love that you take the time to check which posts need more love. We have such an amazing community! 🙂
THANK YOU again to all of you that have already joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. We have 95 members 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 EMMA from Me & B Make Tea and KAT from Candyfloss & Dreams for helping me with the commenting this week! They have been AMAZING! As always I really enjoyed co-hosting with both of them. 🙂
My first guest co-host this week is SARAH from Tammymum. This is the second time that I’m co-hosting with Sara. I’m sure you all know her blog by now. She is lovely and I’m very happy to have her co-hosting the linky again! 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 (@tammymumuk) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally, she has a guest co-host post, Tomorrow, I’ll Do Better linked up too. If you could please go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!
My second guest co-host this week is DANIELLE from Someone’s Mum. Most of you are familiar with her blog as she has co-hosted with me before and she was really great as expected! I’m so happy to have her co-hosting the linky again. It is always a pleasure to have 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 (@MumSomeone) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally, she has a guest co-host post, Wanted – Part Time Teacher: How flexible working could retain talent and ease the recruitment crisis linked up too. If you could please go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
The person who commented the most last week was LAURA from The Unsung Mum. This is the first time that I’m featuring Laura. I mentioned her for the first time for the previous link up but this time she did amazingly well and smashed everybody and went to the Top! She has been very generous this week, commenting on 65 posts which is BRILLIANT! Thank you so much LAURA! One of her posts from last week was, The Unsung Mum and the Barbeque Debacle. Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
The second person who commented a lot this week was MADELINE from This Glorious Life. This is the third time that I’m featuring Madeline and she has also been mentioned several times before. I’m so grateful that she has spread so much love. She is always taking the time to go around and comment on as many blogs as she can. She has been very generous this week, commenting on 64 posts which is FANTASTIC! Thank you so much MADELINE! Her post from last week was, And I think to Myself, what a Wonderful World. Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
The third person who commented a lot this week was GERALDINE from Over Heaven’s Hill. This is the second time that I’m featuring GERALDINE and I absolutely love it! I’m so pleased to have her as one of my top commenters! She has been very generous this week, commenting on 56 posts which is FANTASTIC! Thank you so much GERALDINE! One of her posts from last week was, In Conversations With: James – A Life Just Ordinary . Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
Behind Laura, Madeline and Geraldine was CECILE from The Frenchie Mummy Blog with 51 comments, EMMA from Awetismblog with 41 comments and JADE from The Parenting Jungle with 36 comments. Thank you so much lovely ladies!!! 🙂
For this week’s linky I am linking up a post that I absolute loved doing Looking Adorable with Petit Bateau and a post that I almost freaked out whilst doing but was so much fun at the same time, Johnson’s Messy Play 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. 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, Sarah @tammymumuk and Danielle @MumSomeone and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
