How are you this week? How have things been? I feel as though I’ve not really done anything. ‘A’ was with his father at the weekend except for sleeping and I spent my time blogging…..I think?
On Saturday night we went to a fabulous fireworks display that blew our minds!
‘A’ was tired after a Daddy day and fell asleep on my knee whilst we listened to a band and waited for the display to begin. He had a power nap and then woke up just in time for the main event. He loved it. After, he had 1o goes on one of those massive inflatable slides and it was a job to get him off!
Since then though, he has been full of cold and so we’ve been having quiet playtime at home. The lack of sleep is starting to get to me though as he wakes with a dry mouth or general feeling rubbish -ness (yes, I know it’s not a real word) in the night a few times. Here’s to the next 7 days improving.
Thank you so much for your support this week. I was so happy to see so many of you link up and I really enjoyed reading all of your posts. I have added them all to the Find your Tribe Pinterest board and if you would like to add your own posts to this board, please feel free to message me through the contact me page on here and send me your email address and I’ll add you as a collaborator.
As I mentioned last week and below, I am going to choose a post each week, to be the ‘Tribe Star’. This post will be added to the Tribe Stars Pinterest board.
This week’s ‘Tribe Star’ is Aimee of Mum Amie.
Her post called ‘Why I haven’t asked about your pregnancy’ really moved me. Aimee uses her own heart breaking experience to explain why the usual pleasantries and chit chat about a strangers bump, may not always be the best way to go and how we may want to think about making a comment when we don’t know the person.
If you’ve linked before and you know the score, scroll down, grab the badge and link up. If this is the first time you have linked up, please keep reading. It’s quite quick and painless I promise!
So, welcome to the third Find your Tribe Linky where the only criteria is that your blog was created in 2014 or later.
Why 2014 or later?
It’s hard when you are a new blogger or have a new blog. You may be nervous or unsure or just feel like a tadpole in a pond full of big fish.
This Linky is designed to help you Find your Tribe.
What is a Tribe? I’ve heard ‘your tribe’ mentioned a few times. Basically, a tribe is a group of blogging friends that you can turn to, to ask questions, for help, support and friendship with a shared interest. A tribe may help with retweets, sharing posts or a simple comment on a post that they enjoyed.
Running alongside the Linky is the Facebook group. In the Linky you will get to know people through their blog and will become familiar with names and logo’s but in the group, you’ll get to the person behind the blog and that’s the key part for building you tribe.
Each week I will feature one linked post as ‘post of the week’. If you are featured as post of the week, I will send you the weekly stars badge to add to that post or your blog sidebar, whichever you choose.
I have also created a Pinterest Board that you can add all of your linked blog posts to and a separate one that I will add the weekly stars to also. If you would like to add your posts to the Find your Tribe board, I can invite you to join the board via email so please leave your email in the comments below if you would like to join.
Now all of that is out of the way, here are the Linky rules.
** You can link 1 post per week. Be sure to paste the Find your Tribe badge on the post you would like to link up (video instructions to talk you through the process here if you are unsure). It doesn’t matter what post you link. It can be a review, a rant, a family day out or any subject. Whatever inspires you. Please don’t link a post more than once though.
** Comment on my post that I will link as host.
** Comment on at least 2 other posts that are linked. The post that is linked directly before your post (or any 2 if you are first and any other that grabs your attention – support other new bloggers – it’s what this Linky is about.
It would also be great if you could share your post and the Linky (using the hashtag #FindTribe) on your social media channels to help other new bloggers find us. I will also retweet all your posts via Twitter if you mention me in your tweets @hannahspannahcb.
an example might be: I linked (short link to your post) to #FindTribe via @hannahspannahcb
