Welcome to #BlogCrush week 40!
Did you know Christmas is only 38 days away? That’s only 5 more #BlogCrush linkys! I bought my first Christmas present in July and have been getting bits and bobs since then but stepping up my game now and, not to brag, but I’m feeling pretty good about it. Am sure there’ll be a few last minute rushed buys but after reading this article about humanity’s pathological consumption I’m determined to not buy random crap this year just for the sake of it.
I’ve read a great post from Lucy at Home about trombones for children which inspired me to buy my daughter a pBuzz (like a super mini trombone suitable for 3yo). She had a go on daddy’s trumpet this week and was shockingly good! It’s a bit heavy for her to wrangle though and honestly, I think a real trumpet it a bit complex for her age, but the pBuzz will help her practice the blowing and let her make her own music on a real instrument without the expense or risk of getting a posh one.
We had the odd Christmas post in last week’s #BlogCrush but I’m expecting to see more creeping in over the next few – what have you got for me? 🙂
So what is #BlogCrush for those that don’t know?? #BlogCrush is a unique linky party that promotes bloggers supporting bloggers. You link up one of your own posts, but the best bit is you get to link up one other post written by someone else. One you love and want everyone else to read because it’s just so darn good!
Linking here provides exposure to your own blog, and could help you draw the attention of bloggers you admire as you link their posts and we share them far and wide. It can also drive traffic to your site to help improve those all important stats.
If you’re new to linky parties, Lucy has written an excellent beginner’s linky guide.

Yaaaaaayyyyy! You rock! Your words have inspired someone so much that they’ve taken time out to share it as their #BlogCrush. They thought your post deserved even more attention because it’s so great, and the #BlogCrush community will be very pleased to oblige!
