BlogCrush week 63 – 27th April 2018

Alice | Letters to my Daughter#BlogCrush Linky1 Comment

Welcome to #BlogCrush week 63!


This week I’ve started my new, improved email campaign to my wonderful subscribers (it’s not just my mum and and my test account, I promise!) After plugging it beforehand, sharing my sign up link everywhere, and generally trying to drum up some more interest, my list increased by a grand total of 2! And then one person unsubscribed…

You know what they say though, it’s not about numbers, it’s about the quality of your following and if they’re really interested in what you’ve got to say. I say a lot of things about parenting, feminism, self improvement and promoting good mental health. If those topics are of interest to you – please do join my email list! I’ve committed to at least one email a week, no more than 3, so it would be nice to have as many people reading it as are interested!

I won’t apologise for the shameless plug because we’re all bloggers here, and you know the drill¬†ūüėȬ†You can subscribe here if you fancy it, and don’t forget to tell your friends!

On to Blog Crush…!

If it’s you’re first time here…¬†#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!

#BlogCrush is hosted by myself, the lovely Lucy at Lucy at Home, and the wonderful Wendy at Naptime Natter takes over from me for the first Friday of the month.

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.

Host Posts

I’ll be honest, this was a night-before-publishing panic post and not the one I had planned for this week. That one needed resources making to go with it and I haven’t got around to it yet! I’d started this one briefly when brainstorming ideas, and looking through my list it spoke to me.

I’ve found the posts I write in the spur of the moment often get some of the best feedback. I don’t know why – perhaps they’re more authentic? But anyway, here’s my latest post about a subject that is close to my heart.

5 reasons why it’s OK for parenting not to come naturally
