Blog linkies list

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 kateonthinice@gmail.com

It opens at 7am on a Monday and closes at midnight the following Sunday.

Adventure Calling

Read with Me

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.

Big Pink Link

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.

Tuesday

Dream Team

 

The #DreamTeam linky runs every Tuesday from 6am and closes on a Thursday at 9pm. The hosts welcome all bloggers to link up with any themed post. It’s not unusual to have parent bloggers alongside food, diy and fashion bloggers. This eclectic mix and open house policy makes the #DreamTeam extra special and a fantastic source of blog talent.

Tried and Tested

Tried & Tested was set up as a way for bloggers to share reviews. Many bloggers do them, but they often don’t get the attention they deserve. Sharing them is a great way to see new and exciting products that might work for your family, as well as getting honest feedback on other items. The linky is co-hosted with Colette from https://www.goingonanadventure.co.uk/. It is open every Tuesday from 8am-midnight.

Reasons to be Cheerful

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.

Cool Mum Club

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!

#LetsLinkUp runs monthly starting on the 1st of each month and is THE place for bloggers to link up their linkys!  The idea was to make it easier for my readers and other bloggers to stumble upon other blogs they might like to read and maybe link up to.
#AllSortsofBlogs runs monthly with a new linky starting on the last Friday of each month.  The idea came to Carol when she was bookmarking her favourite blog posts and sharing them in one post.  Her blog is Virtually All Sorts and so AllSortsofBlogs is a play on that blog name, suggesting that you will find all sorts of genres in one place.  Carol generally share uplifting and feel-good posts, in keeping with her blog theme.
