Welcome back to #KCACOLS. I hope you all had 2 great weeks. We did AMAZING with 133 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! 🙂
The last few weeks have been a little bit crazy! I had Sienna ill with a super high temperature which turned out to be Mouth, Hand & Foot disease. This is the first time that any of my girls have had this so I was a little bit nervous about it. Thankfully she only had a mild case one but every time they have a temp above 39 C I always get very worried. She is better now and this week she was back at nursery which allows me to do some work. Last Sunday, we attended the 20th Anniversary party of the Teletubbies and Sienna was so happy and excited! After being ill it was a really nice occasion to cheer us all up! I also went to a super cool event in central London last Wednesday where I had the chance to have a one to one chat with the co-founder of Homewings, a new concept to get an interior designer on a budget and everything is online. I will be talking about this more soon!
Each link up, I love sharing a couple of photos from my last 2 weeks on Instagram, so here are two of my favourites:
#KCACOLS ON INSTAGRAM
Thank you so much for using the #KCACOLS hashtag on Instagram for all your photos. There are now 4,951 photos! Yay! It is lovely to see all your photos there! I would love it if more of you could use the hashtag for your photos and of course it would be even better if we all also spread some love there! As I mentioned before, I am featuring 2 photos from the community that have caught my eye since the last link up.
This time I’m featuring photos by:
- BETH from Life As Mum
2. BECKY from Mommyandrory
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
I’m so impressed how this linky has been in terms of commenting. I think all the hard work of going through each post and checking if people are commenting on the post before theirs is finally paying off. It is not easy and takes time but I think it is worth it. I’m glad people know that to be part of this linky it is fundamental that we all comment and spread all the love as much as we can.
By Thursday this week, we had about 44 posts that needed more comments and by Friday night this number was reduced to 11. We had about 18 people that hadn’t commented on the post linked up before theirs on Thursday but this was reduced to 10 by Friday night. Today, I reminded people about commenting again and that number has been reduced a lot! I would like to say that we managed to get all posts with 4 comments but I think there are a few posts that have pending comments but so far it has been a great link up!
DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE NEW CHANGES TO THE LINKY
The linky is a fortnightly linky. It will be open for 2 weeks until the second Wednesday at 8 pm or until we reach 150 link ups, whichever comes first.
The rules will be the same, the only difference is the amount of time that the linky will be open for. 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 Facebook Group, pin it on my Twitter account and on my Facebook page together with some generic tweets. And of course, I will 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 with 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 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 will do our best for you to receive a comment from someone on behalf of the linky (either the co-hosts or me).
MONTHLY GUEST CO-HOST
This week the “monthly” guest co-host is TRACEY from One Frazzled Mum. Here are her social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@frazzledmumblog) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally, she has a guest co-host post, Yes, One Child Really Can Be Enough to Complete a Family linked up too. Please if you could go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
GUEST CO-HOSTS FROM PREVIOUS LINK
I would like to say THANK YOU so much to HANNAH from Mrs Morgan Plus 3 and ANN from Rainbows are too Beautiful for helping me with the commenting this week! They have co-hosted before so as expected they did a wonderful job. I really enjoyed having them! They have been FANTASTIC! 🙂

My first guest co-host this week is CECILE from The Frenchie Mummy. This is the third time that I’m co-hosting with Cecile. It is always a pleasure to have her!

Now let’s carry on with the linky:
Every 2 weeks 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 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 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. I recommend you to link up one post each week to get the most of the linky.
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).
- the monthly guest co-host post.
- 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 150 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, Tracey @frazzledmumblog, Cecile @FrenchieMummy and Zoe @taleofmummyhood and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
