Pick ‘n Mix Fridays – 15th April 2016

Happy Friday! Welcome to Pick ‘n Mix Fridays your weekly blogger link up linky where you can link up any post new or old with me and the gorgeous Eilidh who blogs at Mummy and Monkeys.

Today is actually my birthday, which is why when I first wrote the title for the post I ended up putting 15th April 1983 and had to edit ha! Which obviously makes me 21 today ;)

I hope you’ve all had fantastic weeks, especially those few lucky devils whose children have still been on Easter holidays…. as for me I am happy to have managed the first week back with no oversleeping. I am literally winning at life this week obviously.

Each week myself and Eilidh choose our favourite post that we have read to feature on our blogs, and if you are chosen you have the option of displaying the badge below if you want to. Entirely optional though.

My favourite post from last week came from Elaine at Entertaining Elliot for her post Joining a Choir and Singing with G4, what an amazing experience to have and as you can hear from the videos on her post they sounded fantastic! Well done Elaine, you should be so proud of yourself.

We will try to stumble your posts on Stumbleupon every week that you link up, to try and get you some extra views as a thank you for linking up. We may not do the actual stumbling until after the next week’s linky has opened sometimes, as it is time consuming.

Please remember, that even if you don’t get many visits or comments from people through Pick ‘n Mix click throughs, we do retweet you which helps to get your blogs out there to others. My Twitter followers are over 12800 at the moment and Eilidh’s are over 6800, and also if you get chosen as our favourite blog from that week you get a shout out on the next week’s post including a follow link. Plus hopefully some Stumbleupon views ;)

Add our badge to your post (ask for help if you need it, we never mind)

Add your link or links (a max of two please) to the Inlinkz below

Please comment on the host posts

Comment on the post before yours, and as many other posts as you have the time to visit.

Use the #PicknMix on social media and when commenting so that others know you have a Pick ‘n’ Mix Fridays post for them to return the favour and read

Feel free to tag us in your post tweet @stevie_couch and @MummyandMonkeys for a retweet, again use the #PicknMix

Please be aware though, with no offence intended, that if the title to your post has a swear word in it that isn’t at least partly obscured by symbols, then I will try to choose another post from your twitter feed to retweet. I try to keep my social media and blog 100% family friendly, plus I have several 10-year-olds from my youngest son’s class following me on twitter.

You can add any post (or two) new or old, any subject including reviews, competitions and more. ALL bloggers are welcome, whether you are a parenting blogger, or any other type of blogger – so long as you write in English, as google translate isn’t always up to the job. The more of a ‘mix’ the better, as it makes it a lot of fun to read them all :)

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 manage pretty much every week to read and comment on every post – you will notice though that some weeks this is at some ridiculous time on the night before the next linky opens – okay not just some weeks….

Have a lovely weekend everyone, and thank you for linking up and making Pick ‘n’ Mix a lot of fun for us,

    Sorry, I flouted the rules. Finished adding way too many links before reading the instruction…can’t even blame this on ‘mummy brain’…

    First time here by the way.

    Apologies again -for taking too much space.

    And thanks for hosting.
