Welcome to this week’s Twinkly Tuesday, the link party hosted by Sadia here at How Do You Do It?, along with Lisa and Caro of Mummascribbles and The Twinkle Diaries. Meet new people, share your posts, and read blogs you might never come across elsewhere.
Each week Lisa, Caro, and I choose a favourite post, no easy task with the richness of content being linked. If you have been featured, be sure to claim your fame by adding the Twinkly Tuesday Twinkler badge to your blog.
My Tuesday Twinkler for the week is from Katey Writes and is part of her ongoing Monday #RaisingReaders series. She argues that it would be wise to treat picky readers as you would picky eaters. Now there’s some food for thought!
Lisa’s Tuesday Twinkler this week is from 23 Week Socks. Louise is a neonatal nurse and mother. She writes a heartbreaking post about when NICU isn’t fair, when babies don’t make it. I only had to experience that once, watching the baby on hospice care whose isolette was next to my girls’. It’s been 9 years, and I still dream of that little boy, so you can just imagine how powerful Louise’s post is.
Caro’s Tuesday Twinkler is from Thirsty Daddy. He got an earful from a daycare teacher who a) doesn’t seem to know the first thing about mornings with 3-year-olds and b) seemed to have lumped Daddy with sitcom fathers who need to be rescued by a woman in shining armour. The objection? His daughter was dressed “inappropriately” for a 70°F (21°C) day.
What did you think of these posts? Worth a visit, right? We would, of course, also love it if you paid a visit to the host links too, and any others that strike your fancy.
On with this week’s link-up!
Link two posts, old or new, that you think deserve more readers!
We’ll also visit everyone’s posts and leave comments between us.
Pinterest: Lisa and I pin every post with an image to the primary Twinkly Tuesday Pinterest board and the top pins are repinned on the HDYDI Twinkly Tuesday board. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet her your email address and she’ll add you to the primary board. No more than 2 posts per week please!
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 everyone’s posts get the attention they deserve. Please do make the effort to abide by the rules, in fairness to the vast majority who do. We have been forced to block participation for repeat offenders who haven’t responded to multiple reminders.
- 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. (Scroll down for the code.)
- Please comment on at least two other posts including the one directly before yours. 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!
- By linking up, you give us permission to use images from your blog if featured. You also allow us to add you to a mailing list to receive a weekly announcement when Twinkly Tuesday opens.
