Welcome to week 62 of Triumphant Tales! I hope you have all had a lovely week. It’s great to have you back here again. There’s one more week of school lef for us before half term. But fear not, we will still be here next week if you are around and want to carry on linking up as normal. No, break for us!
In Case You Missed It!
I’m a one-man band linky host for the next few weeks because Lianne is on maternity leave! But it’s okay guys – we can do this! All the prep is in place and I’m on it! Lianne will still have a linky on her page (that girl is so organised!) and will still be contributing posts for you to read and comment on, she just won’t be commenting herself. I will do my very, very best to get around to you all with a comment and a share on Twitter. But if I’m a little late at any given time, you know why!
A New Instagram Feature
I’m super excited about our new feature. We would LOVE you to start sharing your #TriumphantTales photos on Instagram. We have such a great community here in this linky that we would love to get together with you over on Instagram. I’ve been attempting to up my IG game recently, and so we would love to take a look at all of the pictures you upload throughout the week. Simply tag your images with #TriumphantTales and once a month, probably at the end of the month, we will pick a selection of our favourites and share them here in the linky post. Obviously, at the moment, this will just be me, but Lianne will be joining in when she is back to full-time co-host duties! I can’t wait to see your photographs over the coming weeks!
*Please note, by using the #triumphantales hashtag on Instagram, you give permission for the photos to be shared in the Triumphant Tales blog post should they be selected.
Anyway, Let’s Get To It!
Enough waffling! The first post I’m sharing this week is my 8 Tips For Running A Linky. If you’re not really interested in running one yourself, if anything, it might give you an insight into the hard work that goes into hosting one. I think behind the scenes stuff is always interesting. My second post is all about my Spring Bedroom Makeover. I hope you enjoy them.
For those of you that are new here, welcome along and let me introduce the linky to you.
Me and the lovely Lianne over at Mrs Mummy Harris have teamed up to host #TriumphantTales; a parenting/family and lifestyle linky where pretty much any kind of posts are welcome!
Perhaps you have reviewed something for a company you’ve been wanting to work with for a while? Did you successfully have a night without baby stirring? Perhaps your child successfully uses the potty, or even more so… have you managed a whole day without thinking of wine o’clock?
ANY SUCCESSES; BIG OR SMALL, WE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THEM!
This is where Lianne and I will each pick our favourite post from the week before. The lucky blogger will then get to take home a Featured Blogger badge and pin it on their blog!
I’ve decided that whilst Lianne is taking a break from the linky, I will pick TWO Featured Bloggers – it makes sense. We would normally pick one each and so it’s only fair that you still get two chances! So without further ado…
This week’s first featured blogger is DIY Daddy with his post An Interview With Harriet Shearsmith Who Writes Toby & Roo. My second featured blogger is View From The Beach Chair with her post Adoption On Mothers Day.
Thank you both for contributing such great posts – I urge you all to go and check them out if you haven’t already. Don’t forget your badge guys!
1) The link opens on Tuesday mornings at 6 am and you have until midnight on Thursday night to submit your posts.
2) You can link up a maximum of two posts, they can be old or new just as long as they haven’t been posted here before.
3) Include the #TriumphantTales badge on your post or in your sidebar (HTML code is below)
4) Do comment on one of each of the Host’s posts, the post before yours and one of your choice (so this will mean four comments in total – but feel free to comment on more posts if you wish). Please use the hashtag #TriumphantTales to let us know you have commented.
5) If you would like your post retweeted please mention us and use the hashtag #TriumphantTales.
7) Please do not link up other linkys. It is not part of the blogging etiquette to do this and we would appreciate if you refrain from alternative linky promotion here.
Please do follow us on our other social media platforms too, if you would like to:
Feel free to share any posts you have enjoyed – sharing is caring and all that!
Let’s Link Up!
