Hola chicos, welcome back to my linky #KCACOLS. I hope you all had a fantastic week! We are really enjoying the weather here! There is nothing more beautiful than a sunny day! We did FANTASTIC last week with 105 link ups! YAAY!!! 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 I said above, we have been cheered up with this lovely weather. I can’t believe that we don’t need to wear a coat anymore! Well at least for now, LOL! You never know with the English weather! It is just lovely seeing people much happier when its a sunny, bright day. Don’t you think?
On Wednesday night, I went to an event at St Christopher’s Place in Central London, organised by Boots. They were doing a #PetalParty where they showered us with 3 million petals. It was amazing – I loved it! I met Nicky from Not Just the 3 of Us for the first time and we had a fantastic time. She is lovely! I will probably do a post about it because Nicky took such lovely photos of me that day that I better use them! 😉 Like this one I put in my Instagram. See below:
Now to the linky. I would like to start by saying that I’m over the moon with the commenting this week. It has been BETTER THAN EVER! You guys are THE BEST! I just feel extremely happy to see so much love spread around the linky. Not considering the hosts and co-hosts posts, I have more than 24 people making more than 10 comments. Then we have about 15 people commenting on more than 20 posts. These numbers are just AMAZING! It was very hard to just pick the top 6 as I really want the others to know how grateful I am too. I would therefore like to say Thank You so much to all of you that commented a lot this week, I’m really grateful for that! You guys are the best linkers ever. This linky will never be the same without you! I really love you all!! 🙂
Again, we managed a minimum of 4 comments per post. HURRAH!! Actually, we only have one post with 4 comments, the rest have 5 or more!! How fantastic is that? I’m sure you guys love this as it is really nice to comment a lot to others but at the same time receive lots of comments too.
- One post had 26 comments just from this linky, so that really was fantastic!
- There were 3 other posts that had 23, 24 and 25 comments!
- There was only 1 post with 4 comments.
- The rest of the posts had between 5 and 26 comments!
- Also for this week, the last couple of posts that linked up (link 104 and link 105) had 10 comments and 8 comments respectively (you will always receive comments no matter at what stage of the linky you link up).
We had 3 people that didn’t comment on the post linked up before their post. I’m so amazed about this number! We did manage to reduce it A LOT! Yaay! Thank you so much for making an effort. Let’s try to get this number down to zero! I know we can make this happen!!
Thank you guys for reading the Thank You email on Thursdays (where I list all the people that have commented the most so far. I also include which posts need more love to make it easier for you to comment on those which need it). I know you do, as I can see the posts I mention there that need more comments are then being commented more after the email is sent so I really appreciate you taking the time to read it and then spreading even more love within the linky.
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. I can see this is also happening more lately and I’m very happy to see that.
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. I read and liked all your comments! I can’t go and 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 DANIELLE from Someone’s Mum and SARA from Handy Herbs for helping me with the commenting this week! They have been the most helpful co-hosts I have ever had! They even gave me a hand with some comment counting which I really appreciated! This made a massive difference for me. Sara did all her commenting on Sunday! Danielle finished her part by Tuesday. They were both FANTASTIC and AMAZING! I have really enjoyed co-hosting with them!
My first guest co-host this week is SARAH from Tammymum. This is the first time that I’m co-hosting with Sara and I’m super excited to have her. She has been linking up with us for a few months now and she has always been great. Her posts are always fun to read too. 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, BLOGGING – 6 MONTHS IN linked up too. If you could please go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
My second guest co-host is again MARIA from Suburban Mum. Most of you are familiar with her blog as she has helped me several times. I’m really happy that she will be supporting me this week too! Please give her some love again if you haven’t done it already. These are her social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest). She will also be retweeting your tweets this week so please add her twitter handle (@suburb4nmum) to your tweets as well as mine. Finally she has a guest co-host post, Sometimes…you just need to stop linked up too. Please if you could go there and add a comment it would be AWESOME!!
The person who commented the most last week was again JESSICA from Babi a Fi. She isn’t just the top commenter this week, she has actually done her best ever! I’m so excited and happy when I see the amount of times she has commented this week. She really knows how to spread so much love! She was a co-host a few weeks ago and she has also been featured here several times. She commented on 73 posts. WOW! How FANTASTIC is that? Thank you so much lovely, you are the best commenter I have ever had in this linky! AMAZING! One of her posts from last week was, What I Read in April. If you haven’t read it already, you can go and check it out now! 😉
The second person who commented a lot this week was EMMA from Me and B Make Tea.This is the first time that I’m featuring Emma. She has been linking with us for a few weeks and since then she has been great with her commenting. I love when we have new people joining us for a few weeks and then they are the ones that do the best commenting. She has been super generous this week, commenting on 61 posts which is BRILLIANT! Thank you so much EMMA! One of her posts from last week was, A to Z – Oreo Cookie Truffle Balls. Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
The third person who has commented a lot this week is MAINY from Myrealfairy.com. This is the first time that I’m featuring MAINY. She has been linking with us for a few months and she has always been really active within the linky. She has a lovely blog with lots of interesting stories. She has been FANTASTIC this week, commenting on 58 posts which is AMAZING! Thank you so much MAINY for being so generous! One of her posts from last week was, Beyond the Starline – Book Review. Please go to her post and give her more love if you can!
Behind Jessica, Emma, and Mainy was SARAH from Mumzilla with 54 comments, MADELINE from This Glorious Life with 52 comments and JADE from The Parenting Jungle with 49 comments. Thank you so much lovely ladies!!! 🙂
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 back link 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 Maria @suburb4nmum and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting your posts!! 🙂
