My Favourite Blog Linkies


If you follow me on Instagram then you'll know that I recently got a new blog planner and as I sat filling it in the other night I thought I'd make a list of all of the blog linkies that I like to join in with and what day they're on, who runs them etc.

Whilst making the list it occurred to me that it would probably make a good blog post so after finishing the list I thought I'd share it with you. There are quite a few that I enjoy participating in but I by no means join in with all of them every week, just as and when I feel like it.

There are several good reasons to join in with blog linkies, the main reason I do it is to find other like minded blogs to follow because chances are if they're taking part too then they're probably interested in similar things to me. Also sometimes if I'm stuck for a post to write a linky might give me some inspiration on subject matter which really helps. 

Another thing I like about them is they encourage me to take more family photos or photos of my kids together, it seems silly but sometimes I forget to take them and quite honestly some of the best photographs I've taken of my kids are the ones I took for the Siblings linky for which I'm really grateful because I have those now forever to treasure but they would never have been taken had it not been for that particular linky.

If you're not familiar with how linkies work it's quite simple, a blog will host a linky, usually every week and sometimes once a month and all you do is link up a relevant blog post of yours to whatever the subject matter of the link up is, some have specific subjects and some you can link up any post you like. After joining in you can then explore the other posts which are also linked up, take a look and leave a comment and chances are that that person will then take a look at your post and also leave a comment so it helps to increase comments on your posts too which is always nice.

Hopefully that explains everything so now I'll move on to the list, I'll start with the weekly linkies and then move on to the monthly ones.

Monday

Read With Me by Mama Mummy Mum - This linky is all about books, if you have any posts that are book or reading related then you can link them up here, it can be any kind of book adults or childrens so it's something that everyone can join in with.

Tuesday

Tried and Tested by Family Fever and We're Going On An Adventure - In this linky you can link up any review posts you have written, good or bad. It's also a great way to find reviews of items you've been considering buying.

Tasty Tuesdays by Honest Mum - This is where you can link up any cooking or baking blog posts you've written and also a great place to find new yummy recipe ideas, it's win win!

Wednesday

Mad Mid Week Blog Hop by Super Busy Mum - This one is great because you can link up any post you like, old or new it doesn't matter. You can even link up two posts of you feel like it so it's a fab one to join in with every week.

Share With Me by Let's Talk Mommy - This link up works in the exact same way as the Mad Mid Week Blog Hop, you can share any post you like, an old one or a new one and you can share up to two posts, another great linky to take part in.

Thursday

How Does Your Garden Grow by Fable & Folk - This blog hop is one that I've only just found and haven't actually taken part in yet but I'm really pleased I found it. It invites you to link up any garden related posts you may have written about your own garden or maybe someone else's garden that you found particularly lovely. I'm getting really into gardening since we moved to our new house so this is one I'm hoping to join in with regularly.

Friday

Little Loves by Coffee, Work, Sleep, Repeat - This is a linky that I've taken part in many a time and I thoroughly enjoy writing my post for this every time I do it. With this linky you have to write a post about the little things you've loved that week under six specific headers which are Read, Watched, Heard, Made, Wore, And Lastly. I love writing these posts and I equally enjoy reading other peoples posts so this is definitely one of my favourites to join in with.

Saturday

Snapshot Saturday by Super Busy Mum - This is a photography linky where you simply share your most loved photo of the week, a nice quick and easy one to join in with.

Sunday

The Ordinary Moments by Mummy Daddy Me - This is another photography linky where again you link up your favourite photo of the week, it can be of any ordinary little moment in your life as long as it means something to you.

Ok that's all of the weekly linkies that I enjoy so now onto the monthly ones of which there are only two.

Siblings by Dear Beautiful - I adore this linky because it captures the beautiful relationship between siblings, each month on the 15th you can link up and share your favourite photos of your children together just doing whatever brothers and sisters do, playing, laughing or even fighting. As I said previously this link up in particular has resulted in me taking some beautiful photographs of my children and it's one that I love to take part in.

Me & Mine by Dear Beautiful - This link up takes place on the final day of each month and is great because it encourages me to take a photo each month of all of us together instead of photos of just the kids or my husband and the kids because I'm the one taking the photo. You don't realise that you're missing from all of these lovely photos until you start to make the effort to make yourself part of them and yes it can sometimes be a hassle getting a stranger to take a photo or getting the tripod out and setting it all up but it's well worth it when you get that one lovely photo of you all together to enjoy forever.

So that's it, that is my list of all of the linkies that I enjoy taking part in, I'm sure there are many more fabulous linkies out there that I've forgotten or are simply not aware of and if that's the case please leave me a comment about them so I can take a look.
