Shoulder to Shoulder to Day – the rota and details.

 photo 55c37e25-4fed-4fc6-b061-5125d8172733_zps7901b901.jpgFirstly I must apologise for how long this has taken! There seems to have been interest from everywhere. Facebook, Twitter, my blog post and my email account went on overload! I hope I have included everyone who has wanted to host on the rota but if your name is not there then there is still time to double up but PLEASE email me at and put Emma’s Blog Hop in the subject line.

As you already know from my previous post, we are doing one major blog hop from 22nd May to 23rd June to help out one of our fellow bloggers, Emma Day, who is over at Crazy with Twins. She will need lots of cheering up as she will be in isolation due to her radiotherapy.

There will be at least one host per day from 22nd May to 23rd June. These blogs are as follows:

On that day you are responsible for all social media relating to the blog hop – it is up to you what you use but if you are tweeting then please use #S2S2D and where possible include @crazywithtwins in your tweet. You are responsible for highlighting any new linkers on your watch and any previous links of your choice. If you want your host post to be the one for Emma then that is fine – you can also link it in the hop, alternatively you can write a separate one and link it up anytime between 22nd May and 23rd June. The blog hop code will be on any previous host’s posts. It is easy to get the code – just go to the linkers and underneath it will say in blue ‘Get the code here’. Click on that and it will take you to the html that you need to copy and paste into your post. If you have any queries then please email me 🙂


The aim of this blog hop is to send Emma some cheerful messages so it is up to you how you do this. Whether it be some beautiful photos or pictures, some jokes, some cheerful news of yours or something you have seen in the media, a drawing or creation by your children. Whatever makes you happy. In the process we should be able to bring a smile to everyone’s faces and make the next month a happy place 🙂 (Let’s face it…if we can’t have sun outside then at least we can have it on our blogs!!). You can link up at any time during the blog hop so there is plenty of chances to write a post. You can even write more than one post if you like! There will be a badge on both my post and Phil’s on the 22nd which we would like you to use on your blog and please put it out there! Again use #S2S2D if you are tweeting. Please also promote Emma’s JustGiving page for her race for life in aid of Cancer Research UK.

I do hope all that makes complete sense but if you do have any queries then please get in touch with me by email: and put in the subject line ‘Emma’s Blog Hop’.

Finally, as mentioned previously, I am organising a surprise for Emma which some of you are aware of and have agreed to contribute towards. Please get in touch if you would like to know more.

    Wow, that’s a lot of blogs! Clearly you have no reason to apologise, Victoria, regarding the time it has taken – we can all see the overwhelming response, you’ve done amazingly well keeping track of everyone and it’s appreciated 🙂 Well done you!

    This is brilliant Vic and the reason for blogging! Sorry I missed the organisation of this as would have definitely got involved though with my newbie status it’s probably a good thing I didn’t… Coding etc!

    If there’s anything else though just let me know. Will be following this. I think it’s a wonderful support. X

  11. May 16, 2013 / 1:03 pm

    Thank you! Dates and instructions noted, will mail you about the surprise!

  12. May 16, 2013 / 11:59 am

    This is so brilliant. I’m in awe at all the work you, Phil and Jaime have put into organising this. I can’t wait to host (although at the same time wishing I didn’t have to).
