A very twinkly and festive welcome to #DreamTeam bloggers linky – hosted this week by your regular hosts Annette of 3 Little Buttons, Bridget of Bridie By The Sea and myself. First of all can I please get a “ooooooh” for our new super-swish badges designed by our new co-host Heather of Shank You Very Much. We love that it now includes all of our team including Heather and Nicola of All Things Spliced.
This will be my last week of hosting before the big day as Nicola and Heather will be stepping in for myself and Annette next week to host with Bridget, before we all take a little break for the holidays. I’ll be back next week to share my featured favourite posts, and I hope you all have a lovely festive build up to Christmas in the meantime! Thanks for linking up!
Here’s the link up and how it works:
#DREAMTEAM LINKY RULES
1. Add one post to the #DreamTeam linky, which goes live every Tuesday morning at 6am and will close on Thursday at 9pm.
2. Add the #DreamTeam linky badge or a text link to the bottom of your linked up post. If you are adding this to a side/bottom bar or linky page, please do ensure this is clear to avoid being missed out of commenting.
4. Please comment on each of the hosts linked posts PLUS the post directly before your own (a total of 4 posts as a minimum). If the post before your own does not carry the #DreamTeam badge or text link, you are not required to leave a comment.
5. Optional. Get into the party spirit and tweet/add comments to any additional posts you have really enjoyed. Other bloggers are more likely to return the favour if you do! It’s a #winwin all round. As hosts, we will aim to retweet your posts again as we read them, as long as you have included your twitter handle in your sharing buttons.
*By linking up, you are giving us permission to send you an email and/or tweet reminder for the #DreamTeam each week.
If you are new to linkies I have written a separate post with all of the how-to stuff here which might be handy.
MY FAVOURITE POSTS FROM LAST WEEK:
Christmas with little ones is such a magical time, and I can only imagine how difficult it must be to face any part of Christmas without them. So many families will be sharing the care of their children this Christmastime and this honest and heartfelt post from Kayleigh talks a little about how that feels. It also gives practical advice as to how to handle it for those perhaps facing it for the first time, or just looking to make things a little easier.
Much as I love Christmas, trying to keep up with the enormous expectations, self-imposed pressure to be perfect and the ever increasing traditions can be quite mind-blowing. Kate shares 4 simple but really effective ways to celebrate the festivities in a slightly different (and potentially much less stressful) way! As she sums it up so perfectly: “Forget perfection! Good enough will do and chaos tends to result in the best memories anyway.”
