Welcome to #BlogCrush week 47!
Happy New Year everyone!
Whether you’re a resolution maker or breaker, whether you’re looking forward to the year ahead, or lamenting the end of a great year past, whether you’re feeling fighting fit or still in a post-Christmas haze (that last one is me)… We’re really grateful to have you with us for the first #BlogCrush of 2018!
So what is #BlogCrush for those that don’t know? #BlogCrush is a unique linky party that encourages bloggers to big each other up and share some bloggy love. You link up one of your own posts, AND a post you admire written by someone else. A post you think is so good, everyone should read it!
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.
Did you hear the news?!! #BlogCrush is now on Pinterest too with it’s very own board! As well as sharing your posts all over Twitter and writing lovely comments on your blog, you’ll now also get your posts shared on Pinterest for extra exposure!
What’s more, the featured posts chosen by #BlogCrush hosts each week will get a second pin on the Best of #BlogCrush board because we think you’re super great!
Head on over, follow the boards and your hosts’ accounts and join in the fun!

I was thinking about contradictions, and how our ideas are rarely black and white. I have talked a lot about not judging other parents, and understanding that we’re all on our own journey – but then I thought, are there any instances where that isn’t true…
Thank you for joining us for #BlogCrush this week. It’s so nice to be part of such a great and supportive blogging community! Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on the other side!
Love, Alice x
