Post Comment Love 12 to 14th April and Newbie Showcase

 photo 3050e876-5d08-44fa-b416-1e09c2490383_zpse12fd438.jpgNot only must I thank everyone for linking up last week but I am thrilled at the amount of attention that you gave our newbie showcase blogger – you lovely lot :). Nell told me that she increased her Twitter followers from 80 to 120 and had the most amount of views EVER. I have also had a large number sign up to the rota so thank you so much. More of this weeks newbie shortly.

This link all about sharing posts which you have written this week which just haven’t got the attention they deserve and, with them all in one place, we can help each other share the comment love. This is one of the easiest links EVER. You don’t have a ‘special theme’ to have to write about, the post can be personal, sponsored, a photo, a review, a competition, your own linky, something you’ve linked to a linky….WHATEVER you like – it’s one you’ve already written this week!

The only rules are that you comment on at least two of the other posts in the link (maybe the one above and one below yours?!) and then spread the #PoCoLo about this link up on Twitter.  The post you link up has to have been written in the last week.  The link will go up every Friday and close on Sunday evening at 8pm.

Remember, the more people who link up, the more attention your post is likely to get so please spread the Post Comment Love word and #PoCoLo.  Leave your Twitter handle and link entry number below if you would like a shout-out on Twitter. Also, don’t forget to display the PoCoLo Badge (code below), again the more people who see it, the more attention your lonely post will get.

Welcome to this weeks #newbieshowcase blogger, Mary Proctor:

I’m in my mid forties and a full time stay at home Mum living in Oxfordshire, now I have a bit of ‘free time’ I decided to start sharing my experiences.  I love writing and photography, and most of all my ‘Monkey’ so the blog offers me the chance to explore hobbies and keep an online diary of the things we get up to.

I also wanted to share thoughts on being an older Mum (not managed to get to this yet!).  I am really enjoying writing my blog and have ‘met’ some lovely people in the blogging community.  I have learnt loads too, so my ‘adult’ brain has been switched back on.  I’m a techno dinosaur – had no idea what a widget was until last month (to me it was something in a can of Bitter!!!).

I’m on Twitter as @minnowmep and have a work in progress Facebook page

Today is also Mary’s Birthday – so go over, visit her blog, follow her on Twitter and, if you can’t offer her cake, then make it comments!! 🙂

    Thanks for all the lovely comments so far on #newbieshowcase. I promise to have a good look at everyone’s post by Monday, but have been given a laptop ‘ban’ for my birthday by OT as he’s taken a few days off. Sneaked on while he and Monkey have gone to get dinner (and cake hopefully!!) Enjoy #PoCoLo, and thanks to Vicky for hosting a really great Linky x

    Good morning! I must make a note to jump on this earlier in the morning! I’ve linked in at n.18 this week – quite hard to choose which post to enter actually, as I also really enjoyed writing the one before, but haven’t had many comments there either.

    I love that you’re also showcasing new bloggers, what a fantastic and generous thing to do. Wishing you well in the MADs & BIBs. I’ll be doing my usual read of #PoCoLo blogs – two up, two down from my entry as a minimum. And then I will probably be distracted into carrying on!

    Have a great weekend, xxx
    PS – if anyone fancies saying hi on facebook I’m at
