Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic couple of weeks! We did REALLY WELL AGAIN with 138 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! 🙂
It has been nice having a break from the linky to just relax a little bit. The problem with that is you enjoy it so much that you find it harder to come back to your routine. It has been nice to spend some time with my family. We are actually away at the moment – I’m here in our hotel in Durham writing this post at the last minute! Yes I know, so bad! This is the story of my life: running and rushing! I can’t complaint because this little blog has given us the opportunity to travel First Class on Virgin Trains and using all the facilities. It has been an amazing experience so far, although today we had rain all day! I guess you can never predict the weather in England right? You can see below a photo of our journey I shared on Instagram. You can see the amount of things we had to keep our girls entertained, LOL! It was a super comfy train:
I would like to let you know that there will be some new adjustments that I will make going forward to the linky because I desperately need to free a little bit of the time this linky takes. It is consuming so much of my time and I’m not focusing on my blog as I should, so I will be letting you know soon what these adjustments are.
As most of you know, I’m so happy to let you know that the new Instagram Community #UnPocoDeTodoUK will start this Monday, 5th September. You can find all about it here on the LINKY PAGE. I’m starting the linky on Monday and the theme for the 1st week is Parents in the Picture, so please I would love if you get some nice pictures of you and your kids and join us on Monday! We are so excited about it!
I’m also super happy that you are using the #KCACOLS hashtag on Instagram. We have 841 photos there which is fantastic! I really enjoy going through your photos and I have liked them all and I’m trying to comment there as much as I can. 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:
Well as you all know I keep struggling with my commenting. I’m carrying a backlog from weeks now hence now I need to make some adjustments to the linky. Things will be better soon and I will be able to admin the linky in a more thorough way, so bear with me while I’m preparing these adjustments. In the meantime I will keep focusing on getting you a minimum of 4 comments per post. That is my priority at the moment.
The commenting has been great this week but unfortunately we did not quite reach the minimum of 4 comments per post – there were 12 posts where this was not the case. I’ll try to be on top of this to let you know via the thank you email and Facebook group. I love this community and I’m sure we will all keep sharing the love! Apart from this we still have lots of people commenting a lot which is amazing. Thank you so much.
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. Also please do not forget to approve your comments.
THANK YOU again to all of you that have already joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. We have 104 members now 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! We would do our best for your to 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 BECKY from Educating Roversi and KATY from Hot Pink Wellingtons for helping me with the commenting this week!

For this week’s linky I am linking up Baby Annabell Doll Unboxing & Play and Matching Mummy and Daughters Party Dresses with #GeorgeMiniMe 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, Frances @whingewine and Danielle @MumSomeone and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
