Welcome to the Pick ‘n Mix Fridays blog linky with myself and the very lovely Eilidh from Mummy and Monkeys.
I am feeling a little bit sad that it is back to school time for us on Monday. I love having the boys home and I seriously hate getting out of bed early. The boys haven’t been out of bed without be waking them over the holidays, so Monday will be a shock to the system after 6 weeks of lie ins!
I’m sure most of you are feeling a complete lack of sympathy right now…
If you haven’t linked up to Pick ‘n Mix before or can’t remember the rules, visit the Pick ‘n Mix Guidelines page. Most importantly is to actually comment on other posts, as if we notice you are consistently not commenting on a single other post each week, then we will block you from entering the linky.
At the last count I have blocked 4 people so far for linking up, never adding the badge or commenting on a single other person’s post including mine and Eilidh’s.
One week where the time just got away from you is understandable, but every week is just unfair on everyone else. We try to keep it as fair as possible. You can come back and comment later in the week if you want after linking up. I try to keep an eye on this for the sake of everyone else in the linky.
Also commenting is one of the best ways to increase your Domain Authority, so it is a win win for everyone concerned in my opinion. I personally do as much commenting every week on your linked up posts and other blogger’s sites as I can manage.
Each week myself and Eilidh over at pick a favourite each to feature on our own sites, and if you are chosen feel free to grab the badge below. Equally we won’t be offended if you don’t ;)
My favourite post this week came from Lisa over at The Love of a Captain with her post ‘The Beginning of a Family Love Story‘. I have actually known Lisa’s fiance Trev for longer than I have known Lisa.
Trev grew up a few doors away from my boyfriend Si and they have been partners in crime ever since. I loved Lisa’s post as if she and Trev had never gotten together, then she and I wouldn’t have met and made friends. We live far away from each other, but I love spending time with that lovely little family of theirs whenever we can.
I’ve not managed to convince them to move down to Cornwall yet though ;)
Don’t forget to add our badge from below and include a #PicknMix in your comments and tweets. Tag me @stevie_couch and Eilidh @MummyandMonkeys in to your #PicknMix tweets for a retweet from both of us to my 15k followers and Eilidh’s 8k
We look forward to reading your links! You will get a visit and comment from at least one of us and many of you will be lucky enough to get one from both of us! I try as often as I can to comment on all posts – you will notice though that some weeks this is at some ridiculous time on the night before the next linky opens – okay most weeks…..
Thanks for linking up :)
