brilliant blog posts-Honest MumHey all, after the break over half term it feels a while since I’ve hosted #brilliantblogposts-so welcome back folks and thanks for not forgetting about it!

It’s been pretty busy at Honest Mum HQ-I spoke on a panel at the Internet Advertising Bureau with some of the biggest bloggers in the UK the other day which was a huge honour and half term was a busy but joyous week of fun for the kids and us!

I’ve linked up a review of the opulent but child-friendly Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington we stayed at over half term and have included what has become a visual love letter to London. I hope you like it!

As always, do link up your posts across all genres from family to style, beauty, food, debate pieces and beyond. You can link as many as you like, old or new, just ensure you link back to me or add my badge and please do comment on at least 2 other posts linked up along with my own.

I’ve recently been reading blog posts and seen on twitter that people are feeling pressured to join in with lots of linkies and although no one has referred to mine (I don’t think), I would NEVER want anyone to feel that way about #brilliantblogposts. There is NEVER, EVER any pressure to link up, we all lead busy lives and I know I can’t join in with linkies I love, each week myself.

If you can, please do otherwise catch you another time hopefully!

This is meant to be fun! Now go have some x

    I think linkies are a great way for getting people like me who have been blogging for years and a little lacking in inspiration back into blogging regulalrly again. I think it’s more about the pressure people create for themselves than linkies or any other blogging activity creates.

    So glad you had a lovely half term – you’ve been so busy recently I don’t know how you find the time to run your successful linkys too! I’m linking up this week with a post about slowing down (funnily enough) and one about our visit to Santiago de la Ribera which wasn’t entirely meant to happen! Have a fab week x

      Thanks Michelle, I wrote a post about how I do it-blogging is my full time job so this is part of it. We had an incredible time over half term and seeing the kids so happy on all our family outings was a joy x

    Thanks so much for hosting Vicki – I love this linky, it’s so great to see everyone’s brilliant posts which are so varied. I am also trying to figure out which linkies to commit to each week, at the moment I’m trying to do as many as I can and then see which ones send the most traffic. Hard though because some of the smaller ones are really lovely to do too! Thanks for a great post xx

    Hello Honestmum, this is my first linky which is quite exciting! There are so many wonderful posts linked up already, I will try to read a couple now (while baby is napping). Thanks 🙂

    I love links and never feel pressured, intact I appreciate the reminder. I find they give me inspiration for what to write. Looking forward to reading all about your London trip. I’ve been wanting to take my brood for years but never thought it was child friendly enough. Now I know otherwise!

    Thanks as ever as hosting, lovely lady! I think with linkies it’s more pressure we put on ourselves to get in there, and get involved. I’ve cut down on the amount I do, because it just gets too much. I’ve no idea how you do it Vicki, with getting around to commenting on all the posts who link up here – you do a brilliant job xxx

    Totally true what you’ve written & I’ve noticed that too – the pressure to join in linkys …I think it’s a lot about not wanting to feel like you’re letting your blogging network down, and also just keeping to a rhythm that you’ve established.
    I’ve joined sometimes and then hardly made it around to others blogs… Then it’s taking away from the point there… Rather miss one and engage properly next time than just joining for the sake of it.
    …You do a fantastic job managing yours Vicki! …Glad to hear you enjoyed your break last week 🙂
