As I announced last week, starting today, we’re joining Lisa and Caro of Mummascribbles and The Twinkle Diaries to host Twinkly Tuesday. I’ve been discovering all these great new blogs and hope you learn as much as I have.
At Twinkly Tuesday, you can share your favourite posts, old or new.
Each week Lisa, Caro and I choose a favourite post for a total of three. It’s not easy with so much great content being linked.
My Tuesday Twinkler for the week is from Practicing Motherhood. Vanessa wrote a thought-provoking post titled “9 Ways Pregnancy Prepares A Woman For Motherhood” on the ways in which the experience of pregnancy prepares us for very real changes that motherhood brings.
Lisa’s Tuesday Twinkler this week is from Apparently Awkward, where you can read all about that most awkward of postpartum topics… I quote: “butt problems”.
Caro’s Tuesday Twinkler is from Awesome Austerity. Morna talks about all the ways in which her family has recently made her cringe in public, all illustrated by hilarious line drawings.
Take a moment to read them. You won’t regret it!
On with this week’s link-up!
We’ll also visit everyone’s posts and leave comments between us.
Lisa and I have been pinning like crazy to the Twinkly Tuesday Pinterest board. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet her your email address and she’ll add you to the board. No more than 2 posts per week please The existing HDYDI Parenting board isn’t going anywhere, although we’ll only post the 10-30 most pinnable links there every week.
Each week, all three of us pick our favourite posts which will be featured on the following week’s Twinkly Tuesday page.
There are a few easy rules to follow, to ensure that it’s fair and everyone’s posts get the attention they deserve.
I hate to be a wet blanket, but we’ve noticed that a few people have been linking and running — without bothering to comment on anyone else’s posts — which isn’t in the spirit of the link up. In order for the linky to work, please be generous with your comments! And please add the Twinkly Tuesday badge to the bottom of your posts. Caro’s going to be rolling out a gorgeous new badge in the next month or so, so look for that!
Please do put the effort in, in fairness to everyone else who always does. We do remove offenders if reminders go unheeded.
- You can link up to two posts per week — old or new.
- Please be kind enough to add our badge to the bottom of your post/s
- Please comment on at least two other posts including the one directly before yours. If you have time, visit and comment on as many others as you can. Of course, checking out the hosts’ posts would make us feel very loved.
- Please use #TwinklyTuesday in your comments so people know where you found them!
The linky will close at 23.55 GMT on Friday.
We look forward to reading all of your fantastic blog posts and look forward to seeing you again next week! Remember to grab our button!
