#ItsOK Bloggers Linky – Week 36

Hello and welcome to Week 36 of the #ItsOK Bloggers Linky!

How has your week been? Mine can basically be summed up by the contents of my Lidl’s carrier bag in my photo. I don’t really need to even say much more, do I?

Anyway, sad news this week – we’ve decided to close this linky. (Sad face)

Well kind of. Rather than run it as a traditional linky on our sites we’re moving it across to Facebook and will continue to give all of you and your blogposts as much love, shares and comments as we can over there. We’re going to concentrate more on our Facebook group, and run daily threads for different topics, social follows etc. You know the drill. So head on over to the #ItsOK Parent Bloggers Connect and Engage group now and we’ll be there from next week.

But before I go, I’m still after your votes for the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Awards 2019. I know, I know, I’m getting boring now. But I’ve been shortlisted as a finalist in the Readers’ Choice category which is pretty bloody cool, so if you fancy doing me a favour and voting for me, you can do so here in this post. Thank you!

So, let’s get down to it. Thanks for joining us again at the #ItsOk Bloggers Linky if you’re one of our regular bloggers. If any of you are newbies – welcome, and if you have no idea what you’re doing, you’re in good company with me.

We’re looking forward to reading your posts, but remember to keep them on-topic. Real life parenting stuff only please. No reviews, no crafts, no non-parenting waffle! I’m hosting this week for our last one, and am ready to be entertained!

#ItsOK linky hosts

#ItsOK 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. And Kate is back from her blogging break which I’m SO HAPPY about.

Jacqui hosted the linky last week and has chosen Team Stein‘s post How To Torment The Teething Teenager Further. Well done Charlotte! You can grab your featured blogger 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 – and if that means cracking open the wine during the kids’ teatime at 5pm, then so be it!


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!

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 #ItsOk linky 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.) I’m 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.


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! (Although getting my bloody badge to work is another thing entirely…) 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!

(Update: This linky is now closed)
