The Linky List

I have started this list after I had been blogging for just over a year.  There are so many things I have enjoyed about writing my blog, but one of my favourite things is joining in with linky‘s.

 

For non bloggers, Linkys are posts with the same theme, one person hosts and other bloggers link their posts to the hosts page.  They’re a fantastic way of finding new blogs, supporting other bloggers and getting your blog some exposure.

 

The Linky List

 

Quite often I would here people saying they didn’t know when the different linky’s were on, or they forgot. So I thought I would try to help out and so I compiled a list (which you can download below) of linkys.

 

While I have tried to include everyone, I am sure there are a fair few I have missed off/don’t know about.  If so feel free to email me at aby@youbabymemummy.com with the details and I will add them the next update.

 

The details I need are linky title, hosting blog, the day it goes live and what the linky is about.  Please don’t tweet additions as they can get lost on my timeline.

 

At one point, I used to do A LOT of linkys — sixteen a week!  My weekly favourites over the years have been

 

  • The Ordinary Moments (MummyDaddyMe)
  • Magic Moments (The Oliver’s Madhouse)
  • Point & Shoot (me!)
  • Living Arrows (What The Redhead Said)
  • The Happy Days Linky (What Katy Said/Quite Frankly She Said)
  • Tried & Tested (My Family Fever/Going on an Adventure)
  • Word of the week (The Reading Residence)
  • The Black & White photography project (Podcast Dove)
  • My Sunday photo (Photalife)

Phew!

 

So without further ado, pop your email below if you would like me to send you a copy of the linky list to print out at home.

 

If you see any that aren’t running any more or have a new one to add please email aby@youbabymemummy.com

      Aww thank you very much for you lovely comment.
      A linky will be hosted by a particular blogger or group of bloggers. It will have a theme (i.e review posts) and everyone then can link up their review posts to the hosts blog. People then comment on each others posts to build a community and help each other x

    Hi, I am hosting a new linky so I wondered if it could be added to the list please?

    Its called #KidTested. The idea is to link up any reviews that your kids have been involved in testing with you. Ideal for reviews on toys, kid products and family days out.

    Hope you can add it

    thanks for the list. I think it’d be more useful as a google doc or something online. For me when it opens in pages (mac version of word) it loses all the links (I’m assuming there are links and not just blog names)?

    • You Baby Me Mummy
      Reply

      Hi, thanks for your comment. It is a word doc, so will open in pages. There is no blog links (as I am sure you can imagine getting this far took hours), any blog can be googled if a linky took your fancy. I left it purposefully as a basic word doc, so people can just edit it as they wish, adding their own comments etc. I am sure you could copy it across to your own Google doc, if that suits you better. x
