Marvellous Mondays #33 - Join in with our little linky!

May Your Mondays Be Marvellous #30 - New parenting & lifestyle blogger linky

Happy 33rd #MarvMondays, linkers! Things have vastly improved in the past few weeks since Emily and I started to monitor comments, and this week has been the best for overall commenting so far. The majority of posts received more than 2 comments, but there were still around 14 posts who only received 1 comment (not including the hosts), so we're going to work on lowering this number!

Sadly, it's come to our attention that a couple of linkers are still not commenting on any blogs at all, but Emily and I will be keeping an eye on this, and if it continues, we will have to remove those posts from #MM altogether (not something we want to do)! Just so everyone knows, Emily or I check the comments every Saturday, so if you could use this as your deadline for commenting, as any comments left Saturday-Sunday may not be picked up!

NB. Please remember to use the #MarvMondays hashtag when commenting, as this is the only way we can keep track & how linkers will know where you've come from.

Marvellous Mondays is a place bloggers can come to share all of their best posts of the week and somewhere we can all rally together to beat the Monday blues. Hosted by myself (Kaye) and the fabulous Emily of My Petit Canard, we'll be reading, commenting and sharing all of your wonderful posts.


So, Emily is due to have her baby over the next few weeks, so we'll be recruiting a co-host to take over for that time in the form of the lovely Fran of Back with a Bump; a regular #MM linker! If you'd like to co-host #MarvMondays with Emily or I, feel free to drop us a message as I'm also due my baby in around 7 weeks, so we're going to need all the help we can get!


So, it's top commenter time; for the second time in three weeks Fiona of Coombe Mill commented on 12 posts (not including the host's posts) so a huge thankyou again to Fiona for putting in so much effort to make sure so many of our linkers get comments!

We had four joint-second commenters this week for runner-up, and those were Pondering Parenthood, After the Playground (a new #MM linker too, welcome!), Just Saying Mum & Blabbermama (another recent joiner!). It's amazing how much you guys are commenting, and especially the new linkers - it's lovely to know we're attracting more wonderful bloggers who are so good at sharing the love!

Featured Posts

My featured post this week is A Mummy’s Guide To Having A Poorly Baby In Hospital by Fran at Back with a Bump who wrote a really informative post about having a hospital stay with a baby. Hopefully it's something we're lucky enough not to experience but for those who do indeed need a short or long stay in hospital, some of Fran's tips were great and it really opened up my eyes to the things I should know if I did find myself in the same situation.

Emily's featured post this week is Packing Away My Husbands Things by Rainbeaubelle who shared an emotional post on the journey her and her children are going through as they prepare to move home, and how they are together going through the difficult experience of having to pack up her late husbands and their fathers things. An incredibly touching, beautiful and brave post to share.


1. You can link up to two posts per week. Posts can be new or old and on any topic you would like to share and promote. Linky opens at 6am on Monday morning and closes at 11:55pm the same day.

2. We'd love it if you could make sure you're following Emily (@MyPetitCanard) and myself (@HelloArchie_) on Twitter - mainly to ensure we can keep up with you all and remind you of the next weeks link-up!

3. Add the Marvellous Monday's badge to the bottom of your post. It's really simple and easy to do, just copy and paste the HTML code from the badge below.

4. In true linky fashion, please share the love and comment on one of the host's posts and the post directly before yours (preferably more!) at an absolute minimum per week. When commenting, use the hashtag #MarvMondays so that they know how you've found their post.

5. By linking up, you are giving us permission to send you a weekly email reminder for Marvellous Mondays.

Feel free to use the hashtag #MarvMondays when sharing your posts on Twitter and include either @MyPetitCanard or @HelloArchie_ so that we can share your marvellous posts on our own networks. Happy linking!
