Pick ‘n Mix Fridays – 8th April 2016

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 lovely Eilidh who blogs at Mummy and Monkeys.


I hope you’ve all had a great week? Apologies about the issues anyone had with the badge code last week, I did a quick copy and paste the night before and must have missed a bit of code but I was out most of the day so unable to fix it for a while.

I’m loving that it is now the weekend, but a little sad that my boys go back to school on Monday. The holidays really do go way too quickly for my liking. We’ve made the most of it though and had lots of great family days out.

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 Laura over at Five Little Doves with her post The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face which is a really brave emotive post about her son Joseph who was born sleeping, and the reactions people have to seeing her photos of him. I warn you, it is unlikely you’ll have dry eyes reading this post.

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.

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 12500 at the moment and Eilidh’s are over 6500, 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 11pm the night before the next linky opens – like tonight ;)

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

      It all takes a bit of getting used to, but you’ll be amazed how much you pick up and learn along the way :)
