Back in November, the lovely Lisa from Mummascribbles and I attended a blogging conference together. While chatting in one of the breaks, I told Lisa how much I loved the posts that she writes about all the happy times from her weekends. I also mentioned that I thought that it was a brilliant idea for a linky and Instagram community.
Fast forward 3 months and here we are with our first Our Weekend Happy linky. Lisa and I are so excited about this new venture. I have a sneaky suspicion that it is going to be ace!
Our Weekend Happy Linky
Lisa originally created Our Weekend Happy and then I started joining in at the beginning of this year. And it is such a lovely post to write. It is all about capturing memories. And after all, isn’t that why most of us blog?!
Essentially it is a write up of all the lovely moments from the weekend. Time can pass so quickly and often you forget the fun and happiness that can be had from visiting a park or playing games with your kids. Our Weekend Happy is an opportunity to record those happy moments.
We’ve decided to create a linky where we can all share these happy weekends. And we would love you to join us. So please link up any blogs and vlogs about your weekends. You don’t have to call them Our Weekend Happy or follow the same format as Lisa and I. However, if they could be happy and fun posts then that would make me… well… happy!
We want to keep the rules pretty simple but we also want to make sure that every person who links up will benefit from joining the linky. So here we go:
1. Link one post per week
2. You can link up a blog post or a vlog but it has to be about your weekend. And we would love it if it is a happy post.
3. Please comment on the hosts’ posts and the post directly before yours. Of course, if any other blogs or vlogs take your fancy then please give them some love.
4. Pop our badge on your post. You can find the HTML for this at the bottom of this post.
Every week, Lisa and I will be commenting on all blogs and vlogs that link up. Also, please remember to tag us on twitter and we’ll give you an RT.
The linky will be open every Wednesday at 06:00 and will close on Sunday at 23.55. So you have plenty of time to link up your happy weekend blog posts or videos.
#Ourweekendhappy Instagram community
Lisa and I have also decided to create an Instagram community for any photos from your weekend. If you include the hashtag #ourweekendhappy then we will like and comment on all the hashtagged photos. Then at the end of every month, we will produce a roundup of all our favourite photos from the previous month.
We would love you to join us and start using the hashtag #ourweekendhappy. It would also be great if you could give some love to anyone else who uses the hashtag. Hopefully, we can create a lovely community of people sharing happy photos from their weekend.
And that’s it! We can wait to read all your happy posts and watch your videos. I’m really looking forward to sharing the happy moments from our weekend with you.
