I must confess I was a terrible linky host last week

My Home Truths
As you are probably well aware on Thursdays I host a little linky called Thankful Thursday. Taking it on has been one of my bloggy dreams come true.

I love that it encourages people to stop and think about what they have to be thankful for. Actually I love that it makes me stop and think what I am thankful for as well. Some days are much easier than others and it is the harder days to find thanks that I am generally the most grateful to have made myself stop and think about it.

It is kinda like stopping to smell the roses I guess. Even when there aren't necessarily any to be smelt.

As there are generally only a handful of bloggers that join in I am able to go and read each and every one of them. I also tend to tweet the links and then pin them to a Pinterest Thankful Thursday board. I was sharing on Google as well but due to me not having a Google button on my web browser and not enough people having a Google share button on their posts I stopped.

Last week however I must confess I didn't do any of that.

In fact it wasn't until very late on Sunday night that I even got around to commenting on the posts that had joined in. Which makes me feel all kinds of bad I can tell you.

I mean if bloggers can go to the trouble of writing a post about their thanks and then linking it up the very least I can do is have a read and leave a comment isn't it? After all the other thing I love about hosting Thankful Thursday is the community that it is creating. And we all know blog communities are only created by sharing lots of comment love.

Between going to the dentist, working and then the poor old dog, I just couldn't make the time to sit at the computer. Much to my disappointment I assure you. And while I know that chances are everyone is completely understanding of all of this I still needed to get it off my chest so to speak.

So there you have it. A terrible blog host I was. And with two weeks of full time work kicking off today I am not sure this week will be much better. Fingers and toes crossed that children go to bed nice and early Thursday night and I can do it then.

Got something you need to get off your chest? Join in here Well at least for this week while the lovely Kirsty puts her feet up and takes care of herself xx

  1. It must be quite a bit of work to host these linky things. I know that just participating in them is time consuming. Anyway, I'm sure everyone totally understands that you've been busy so don't stress. Most bloggers are pretty awesome after all, including yourself. xo

  2. We still love you!!!! I know how much work it is to host a linky, I looked after My Week According to Instagram for about 6 months last year. I'm finding it harder and harder to keep up with visiting and commenting on other blogs when I join a linky ... and feel like I shouldn't join if I can't do it justice, which is why I haven't really gotten into Thankful Thursday. By that stage of the week I've lost my blogging mojo!!!

  4. Oh, you are being too hard on yourself! I'm very sure those bloggers that participate are thankful that you host the linky in the first place. I host a linky on Mondays and it's a tough gig sometimes, trying to get around to commenting in a timely fashion!

    1. Yes maybe I am, but still I know how much I like it when a linky host comments on my blog so least I can do is give that back.

  5. I sometimes don't get around to The Lounge posts until Sunday night too. Sometimes life just gets in the way and my thought is as long as you are actually getting around to the posts then it's ok. We're all bloggers and we all understand that family and real life come first.

    1. Yes I am sure everyone understands and maybe some don't even notice but I just needed to get it off my chest

  7. I agree that they sound like a lot of work. One day I'll put my hand up to host one yet, but not yet.

    1. Yes they are a bit of work but it is a nice kind of work. When life doesn't get in the way of course

  8. I am not sure I can really talk as I can't even remember the last time I linked up for Thankful Thursday (I confess to be a bad linker!) but I think you are being hard on yourself. It is often hard to dedicate the amount of time to blogging as we would like but there are times where life just takes over, can't be helped!!

    1. If I am not hard on myself then who will be? Lol. You are right though sometimes life just happens

  9. Rhianna we know there is a life outside of blogging that must be lived so please don't be worrying about it. It is just great to have a link of gratitude to make us appreciate love, life and its ups and downs. xx

  10. I so hear you on this. I've struggled to get to everyone the last couple of weeks for I Must Confess which was one of the reasons I asked for hosting help this week - I couldn't guarantee that I could get to everyone, particularly in the mental place I've been lately. BTW I'm joining in with Thankful Thursday tomorrow for the first time in ages - looking forward to being an active linker and commenter!
