The Quotes Linky Candid Cuddles 63

Candid Cuddles quotes linky featured image

Hulloooo, Candid Cuddlers, I’m back! Did you miss me? Of course you did, how could you not?!  Seriously, my sincere apologies for not being able to do my full duties as Candid Cuddles host.  As Becky explained previously, I was changing web hosts.  That’s the short polite version; fact is that before even changing hosts, I was having all sorts of brain-ache inducing tech issues…oh the fun I had…  However, lovely linkers, I read your posts and commented/tweeted when I could. I say ‘when I could’ because in addition to having issues with my actual site, I also had the incredible joy of our home internet connection deciding that it didn’t really want to do the erm ‘connection’ bit.  Anyway, enough of the pity party; the main thing is I’m back and ready to be all candid and cuddly with you!  A big thank you to my superstar Candid Cuddles partner Becky for holding the fort and hosting solo for two weeks.

In fact, Becky’s sensible reassurances and kind attitude during my IT breakdown (and I don’t just mean my technology broke down, I mean I almost broke down over the IT issues ha ha) are in fact the inspiration behind my linked quote for Candid Cuddles 63.  Go see!

The Candid Cuddles quote linky is about being creative, sharing a message/personal insight. Posts with any type of quote are welcome to link up.

The quote can be typed or a graphic. The quote can be inspirational, motivational, funny, sarcastic or anything else you like.  If you are new to Candid Cuddles & need any help linking up, you can read Becky’s Linky Guide or tweet either of us at @AbPrabulous / @CuddleFairy.

Our Picks From Last Week Are

Michelle of Rockin Random Mom who wrote about restoring the American spirit and passing it down to the next generation. It’s obviously a timely post given the recent utterly incredible election that took place in her country.  To be honest, as a person whose own homeland went through possibly its biggest ‘test’ so far in the form of Brexit, the whole issues of patriotism, nationalism and frankly basic human decency have been burning topics for a while now.  I have a feeling Michelle and I would be able to spend a lot of time discussing this one day! Becky picked Madeline’s The One Thing That You Have over on This Glorious Life and I must say I am so glad I checked this one out (despite Becky and I dividing up our linky duties) because it is an absolute gem, the timing of which couldn’t have been better. I MUST remind myself of this on my low blog mojo days.

I’m Helping Agent Spitback to Pass the Sauce!

Pass The Sauce linky featured image

Tapping of fork on side of the glass, lowering of microphone stand (#BecauseShortarse and while we’re at it can someone go get me my kids’ step stool?), trumpet fanfare in distance, drumroll, etc aaaaaaaaand clears throat:

Ladies and genitalmens (sorry juvenile joke from my university years and a hard one to kick), I am simply spiffingly delighted and over the moon to tell you that this week and next, I’m co-hosting the fantabulous new linky Pass the Sauce run by the incomparable Agent Spitback.  Watch this space – well actually don’t just watch it, link up! – as I’m sure she’s onto a winner with this.

According to Agent Spitback, like all things good in life, we always need a bit of sauce..tomato, barbecue, chocolate, caramel, hot chilli…frankly I thought it meant something else but that’s just me.  Pass The Sauce will keep the spirit of #abitofeverything which El used to host with the Anxious Dragon. That linky has ended but as a little bit of sauce goes with a bit of everything, this linky (like its predecessor), will continue to welcome all sorts of posts, from crafts, reviews, rants, DIY, parenting, stories, poetry, humour, just about anything and everything.  It’s all about spreading the #bloggerlove.  As opposed to having a regular co-host, El will be running Pass the Sauce with a new guest co-host every two weeks.

Most of you know the score and general common sense rules:

Please link up ONE post, old or new.

They can be on any subject except giveaways.

Please use the linky badge below on the post you link up.

Please comment on the Host post, the Guest Co-Host and the post before yours and of course any others of your choice. Share the blogging love peeps!

(If you do not put the below badge on your post or comment, you will not be eligible in being featured…host’s rules, don’t shoot the messenger!)

The linky will run from 11am (GMT) Tuesday to 10am Thursday.

If you link up, you are agreeing to be notified of future link ups.

And of course tweet your linkup using the hashtag #PassTheSauce and both our Twitter handles @abprabulous and @agentspitback.  We’ll share any that are tweeted.

As Agent Spitback says so beautifully, it is not about the linky, it is all about the community. You can’t blog alone!

The Agent is most wise…

The all important linky badge!

BabyBrainMonday #14

It’s Monday (boo) but there’s a fab linky to cheer us all up (yay!). Yes, I’m delighted to co-host #BabyBrainMonday with the lovely Harps of BabyBrainMemoirs. I have been participating in  various linkies for some time now but none of the ones that caught my eye were on a Monday. Then Harps launched #BabyBrainMonday and in my case it gave me the impetus to start my week as I mean to go on: more organised on the blogging front. Okay, you can stop sniggering…I know I know…I’m a bit like a chocolate umbrella in the sun when it comes to blog organisation. In other words, useless! But I’m trying hee hee. And I’m honoured Harps has asked me to join her.

The weekly theme of #BabyBrainMonday is a general linky which welcomes you to share any posts you have, be they new or old. We all have some of posts buried deep in our blogs as well as newer posts that may not have gained the visibility we’d hoped for. So whatever the post content, dig deep, link up and share the love!

memory

We are looking for posts from all bloggers – parent bloggers, beauty bloggers, food bloggers, fashion bloggers, travel bloggers, vloggers and bloggers. Diversity is fab! For vloggers you can link your videos directly from YouTube.

The linky will run from Monday 6 PM GMT till Friday 6 PM GMT.

Please can you familiarise yourselves with the rules below. We have had a few instances of people linking up several consecutive posts but not sharing the linky love by including the #BabyBrainMonday badge nor commenting on any of the other posts nor tweeting. We are going to be operating a two strikes and you’re out policy (which we really hope we don’t need to enforce! Obviously, just want everyone (linkers and hosts) to benefit from the linky.

Trista over at Domesticated Momster has written this fab post on linky etiquette.

And here are our basic #BabyBrainMonday rules:
1. Add the badge to your post by copying the below code. A few people didn’t include the badge on linked up posts last week which is a shame. The linky works as a mutual benefit so please don’t forget to include it.

Absolutely Prabulous

2. Link your post click by clicking on the inlinkz button below and copy and paste your post when prompted and follow the instructions. Please feel free to link as many posts as you wish. Share your post via twitter, be sure to tweet us (@babybrainmemoir and @absolutelyprabulous) as many times as you wish, using #BabyBrainMonday and we will be sure to retweet 🙂

3. Comment on two posts per link up. Also tweet about the posts you comment on to share the blogger love! We’ll be sure to retweet your posts and share your content. 🙂 You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram. Happy linking everyone!x

If you are not sure how to link up, Cuddle Fairy has written this guide to linkies.

Right, hope to see you on here and happy linking!

wineandboobs linky June 9th

So a couple of weeks ago I lost my linky virginity to Modern Dad Pages on the awesomely titled linky #wineandboobs.

And since then I’ve done it again and again. In front of everybody. Addicted. Apparently that’s what happens when a blogger loses their linky virginity. We can’t stop. So I’m beyond excited and delighted to have been asked to co-host this week’s wineandboobs linky! Well I love wine and I have boobs so ya know… The theme of this linky is the same each week. Just link your favourite post up! It can be an old or new post and believe me you don’t want to miss out on this because #wineandboobs is just getting bigger and better each week! 🙂 A big thank you from Moderndadpages by the way for linking up with him each week. You make his week and the posts are all so great to read.
