#SharingtheBlogLove – A new linky

Permalink

One of the aspects of blogging that I’ve most enjoyed since I started has been the amazing community that exists around it. I’ve always been an avid reader of blogs, but the sheer number that I read now has grown massively and I find there is always a new up and coming blog that I discover and love.

#SharingtheBlogLove is a new linky venture which I’ve set up with the lovely Laura from Dear Bear and Beany. We both wanted to give something back to the blogging community, so the idea of this linky is that it will be a weekly showcase of our favourite posts, introducing you to new bloggers you might not know, and highlighting the talent that is out there in the blogging world.

 

What’s it all about?

With this linky we really want to give your great posts the exposure that they deserve. We’d like you guys to link up your posts and Laura and I will each showcase our 4 favourites the following week, as well as tweeting them out at various points across the week. If you’re chosen as one of our featured posts, we’ll include a link to your blog and blog post, as well as a summary of your post and why we loved it – so a total of 8 fabulous posts will be showcased each week!

To give these great posts even more exposure, both Laura and I will be linking our showcase posts up to #TheList with Aby at You Baby Me Mummy and Amy at Mr and Mrs T Plus Three on Fridays. A huge thank you to both of these lovely ladies for allowing us to do this!

#SharingtheBlogLove will launch on 30th June 2016, and will open every Thursday, running until Tuesday at midnight.

 

The Rules

As always we have a few rules that we’d like to put in place to ensure that everyone receives plenty of comments:

  • Please link up one post, new or old, and add our badge to your post with the code below
  • Please visit both the host post and choose a featured post from each to comment on to give them some extra love
  • Please comment on the post before yours
  • Please use our hashtag #SharingtheBlogLove when you comment so that we all know where you’ve come from
  • Tweet us your links at @hotpinkwellies and @dearbearandbean with the hashtag #SharingtheBlogLove and we will aim to retweet you all

If you’d like to comment on more posts we would love that – we all know comments are what make the Linky world work after all! If you read something you like, why not give it a tweet and let everyone know?

We’ve designed a lovely badge which we’d love you to include on your posts to be in with a chance to be chosen as a showcase post – we like to think it’s a nice blend of our two blogs!

We’d love it if you would join us on Thursday 30th June for the very first #SharingtheBlogLove – I hope to see you all there
