#ItsOK Bloggers Linky – Week 23

Welcome to Week 23 of the #ItsOK Linky!

How has your week been? Are you already fed up with the Easter holidays or are they going okay?

I’ve had a busy few days as finally have a new WEBSITE! You guys will totally get how bloody EXCITING this is – think everyone else thinks I’m a bit sad. (Oh, and my badges are still shit!) And I met the Unmumsy Mum, who I actually have a girl crush on. So all in all a good week!

Loved all your posts last week, but just to let you know we’re getting tough on non-parent related content.  We want to keep the #ItsOK Linky all about real-life parenting. Whether they are funny, serious, hacks or ranty posts we don’t mind – but they have to be on topic. If not, we’re just going to delete them off the linky. Harsh, I know!

Thanks for joining us again if you’re one of our regular bloggers. If any of you are newbie parent bloggers – welcome, and if you have no idea what you’re doing, you’re in good company with me.

And just to remind you, we’re taking a break for Easter next week, but will be back in a fortnight, when I’ll be hosting.

#ItsOK linky hosts

Onto the linky! 

My lovely co-hosts are parent bloggers Kate from The Mum Conundrum, Carly from Mom of Two Little Girls, Nicole from Tales from Mamaville, and Jacqui from One Messy Mama. Although Kate is currently taking a few weeks off.

Jacqui hosted the linky last week and has chosen Day Dreams of a Mum‘s post You won’t believe me now, but you’ll miss Peppa once she’s gone Well done, Kelly! You can grab your badge here.

Hey, ‘It’s okay!’

If you’re a first timer to the linky, find out all about it here. We’re basically saying it’s okay to not be okay sometimes – particularly when it comes to parenting. Just do what you need to do to get through the day!

The rules

We’re all pretty relaxed here at #ItsOK, but for the linky to work we have a few rules:

1.) You can add ONE of your posts to the link-up – any post you like, as long as it’s on a REAL LIFE PARENTING THEME and you haven’t posted it on the #ItsOK linky before.  But as parent bloggers, I’m guessing that’s pretty simple.

2.) Before you add your post to the link-up, make sure you pop the linky badge, using the html below, on your post. It’s not as scary as it looks, honest. Even I managed to do it! Copy the code from this page, then open a new browser tab, go to your site and navigate to the post you want to share on your site. Go into ‘edit page’, change the view (in the top right hand corner of the writing area on WordPress) from ‘visual’ to ‘text’.

Scroll to the bottom of the text, and paste the code in there. If you change your view back to ‘visual’ again you’ll see the linky badge in all it’s glory at the bottom of your post. Ta-dah!!

3.) Make sure to comment on the host’s post, the post before yours, and one of your choice. We’ve noticed a lot of people aren’t doing this, and that’s pretty crappy.

4.) The linky will run every Wednesday morning at 7am until Thursday evening at 11.55pm.

Share the love

5.) Tweet us (@twinstantrums @MamavilleTales, @momof2lgs and @onemessymama4) with the URL to your post. Make sure you include the hashtag #ItsOK so that we know you’re one of those lovely parent bloggers types and tweet us your linky post, and not just telling us about your random day… Remember this step – if you don’t tweet us, it’s tricky for us to share.

6.) Carly is hosting this week so will comment on all your posts, and they will be retweeted and shared on Facebook. If your post is featured as one of our favourites then you are very welcome to display our lovely ‘#ItsOK Featured Blogger’ badge on your sidebar.

7.) Come and join our lovely Facebook group, and we’ll share your posts on there, as well as on the #ItsOK Facebook page – pop over to like and follow us where we’ll share the best parent blogger posts from each week’s linky too.

8.) Are you on Pinterest? Come on over and follow our #ItsOK board, we’ll share your posts and you can plunder all the super-useful/funny/interesting reads and finds we amass too.

Parent bloggers keeping it real

The #ItsOK linky is all about celebrating real-life parenting. Please link up with posts on this theme ONLY. We’re not too keen on random sponsored posts, and we’ll delete anything non-parent related. We’re all about Mum (and Dad) life, warts and all.

Even I can follow these rules, so it can’t be that difficult! Any problems, just give us a shout.

It’s a great way of finding other blogs to read, and realising somehow or other we’re all in the same boat – and #ItsOK!

Happy linking!
