Blog linkies are a fantastic way to promote your own blog and find others to read and engage with. Some are general and some are themed. Some take place every week and some less often. Here’s a list of some of the ones I know about and the days they open. Bear in mind that some are only open for a day but some for a few days or longer. It’s a case of finding the ones that suit you, your blog or your niche best. If you would like to add your linky to this resource, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The idea of this linky is to create a little blogging ‘family’ where anyone is welcome to link up any kind of post. It is co-hosted by Karen of Two Tiny Hands and Alana from Burnished Chaos. It runs from 12am Monday mornings to 11.55 Wednesday night.
Creative Mondays Link Up – Where you can link up anything creative. Recipes, Crafts, Room Makeovers, Sewing projects, Outfits, Days Out, Photography. Starts: 8:AM Monday morning.
Living Arrows is sharing a post with at least one photo of childhood each week. Some people share a photo of one of their children or a photo of each of their children and others use it as a chance to write about the week gone by. It opens at 7am on a Monday and closes at midnight the following Sunday.
Chantelle established Read With Me as she is an avid reader always on the look out for the next book to pick up both for herself and her kids so she thought it would be good for other like minded people to share their reviews with each other. The linky runs from Monday to Sunday every week to give everybody a chance to join in.
The Big Pink Link was set up by myself and This Mum’s Life (who’s taking a little break!), and is now co-hosted by moi, Just Hannah Jane, Five Little Doves and Life is Knutts. It is open to anyone of any genre and takes 1 post per blog about Love, Life, Laughter and Loveliness which covers most topics you can think of! It opens Mondays at 9am GMT and closes at Noon on Wednesdays. It is mostly term time only as all the hosts are parents who try and have holidays off their children. Use the hashtag #bigpinklink on twitter and there is also an instagram community, use #pinklinker to join in.
The Little Happy Journal Linky is for bloggers who post about happy things including mindfulness, relaxation and motivation.
Share the Joy
After spotting a gap for a travel linky focused on city travel, Elizabeth at Wander Mum and Cathy from MummyTravels set up City Tripping. All bloggers are welcome to link up as long as their posts are about city travel, with ideas and inspiration for the best things to do in any city across the world – whether you’re visiting or exploring on home turf, sharing a day out or review, itinerary or insider info on the city’s hidden gems.
Cathy and Elizabeth comment on all posts and share on social media and Pinterest. City Tripping runs weekly, alternating between Wander Mum and MummyTravels, from Tuesday at 7am until Thursday at 11.55pm. Bloggers are asked to comment on the host’s post and at least two other linked posts.

Brilliant blog posts
Reasons to be Cheerful or #R2BC as it is affectionately known, is a weekly positivity linky that goes live on a Thursday. Each month it alternates between Mummy from the Heart and Lakes Single Mum. It was set up in January 2011 by Michelle as a way to appreciate all the little blessings in life. The best medicine for a negative day is to remind yourself of what you are grateful for.
Sarah set up CoolMumClub as a pretty chilled parenting blogger linky. It opens 6am on a Thursday and runs for one day only (during term time). Anyone is welcome to link up and Sarah just asks for some social shares, wearing the badge with pride and spreading the #coolmumclub love around another post or two. It was set up to celebrate all that is awesome about all of us – so don’t fret if you don’t feel cool enough, at coolmumclub, we are ALL COOL AS…
Highlights of Happy
#HighlightsofHappy runs weekly with a new linky each Friday and was initially set up by Carol to summarise the weekly entries from her daily gratitude journal Starting the linky made her accountable to keep up with her journal! Carol chooses her favourite entry and decides on her ‘happy word’ for that week. She is very proud of how I’ve grown a little community which has regulars linking up each week and how we spread the happiness across the internet between us!
Blog Crush is open to all bloggers and was set up as a way to celebrate the best blogs around – linkers add 1 post of their own AND a post by somebody else.

Link up anytime from Fri 6am to Sun 9pm (GMT) with hosts Lucy At Home, Letters To My Daughter and Naptime Natter
