Momsterslink ~ Aug 11, 2016

Welcome to another fabulous weekend of #momsterslink.  I want to give everyone who takes the time to link up with me a big THANK YOU!

So of course my catching up was a complete FAIL but no worries as I never leave a post unloved or unshared. ¬†I will be doing some traveling in the car as the passenger so hopefully, as long as the internet works, I will be doing some catch up. ¬†This is also why I am posting this on Wed instead of Thursday just in case I can’t access any internet. ¬†The days and time of the¬†linky are still the same.

FYI:¬†Sometimes if I am able to sit at my desktop, I go through and do as many comments as possible since I can type faster using a keyboard instead of my phone. ¬†Therefore if you notice I have¬†commented but not shared, it’s because I am using my desktop and then I will go back and share from my phone which is easier. ¬†Yes believe it or not I usually do all my commenting and sharing from my phone which can be very time-consuming only being able to type one letter at a time. ūüėĀ

*Please Read:¬†I am happy to announce that over the past few weeks there hasn’t been a single post that had zero clicks which means everyone has gotten better about following the rules. ¬†The community works so much better when this happens.

Without further a-do…

Welcome to another fabulous weekend of #momsterslink.  I want to give everyone who takes the time to link up with me a big THANK YOU!

I am sorry for the delay this week as it has been quite an emotional one. ¬†And as always I apologize for being behind on my commenting but hopefully will be caught up by weekend’s end. ¬†Again thank you for your patience.¬†

*Please Read:¬†I hate to bring this up but I noticed a couple people who did not share the post right before theirs. ¬†It is not hard to click and share. ¬†Especially if you don’t even have to read it! ¬†So for this week, if I find it happening again I will call out the person in this post for next week’s #momsterslink. ¬†*makes momster face* ¬†Also, if you link up 2 posts may I suggest linking them so they aren’t right next to each other (meaning, waiting until some others have linked up, then linking your¬†second post) ¬†that way both your posts should be shared by the person after you. ¬†This is completely up to you. ¬†I share everyone’s posts so if you are the last to be linked your post will still get shared.

Momsterslink ~ July 21, 2016

Welcome to another fabulous weekend of #momsterslink.  I want to give everyone who takes the time to link up with me a big THANK YOU!

As always I am behind in commenting as I was *glamping and boating completely off the grid for 5 days. ¬†Therefore I didn’t even look at any social media for an entire 5 days. *gasps* ¬†And to be honest, I enjoyed the time with family and friends.

*Glamping: [glam-ping] noun: meaning the activity of camping with some of the comforts and luxuries of home aka NOT IN A TENT.

Momsterslink ~ June 16, 2016

Welcome to another fabulous weekend of #momsterslink.  I want to thank all of you who take the time to link up with me.  My sincere apologies for my being WAAAAY behind on commenting but no worries….I WILL CATCH UP!

Please read:  I have noticed the past couple times that some posts are getting 0 clicks on which means that the person who’s post is after there’s is not following the rules **shame on those people**  It is not difficult to click on a post and share it…you don’t even have to read it, and as long as their share buttons are available it makes sharing a cinch!  Therefore, from now on those people who don’t follow the rules will not be getting a comment or share from me.  Yes, I know who you are because I can see it on my Inlinkz calendar.

!!!Also #momsterslink will not be running next week June 23 as momster and her clan of peeps are headed to the beach!!!  It will return for June 30.

Also, if because of the time zone you are unable to link up I will be happy to link your post for you.  Just send me a tweet @DomesticMomster on Twitter with the link and I will add your link.  I know that time zones and being in different countries can sometimes veer some from linking up.

Letting Go OF The Linky Guilt

linky guilt blogging bloggers

There are so many linkys now days and I am here to finally say that I just don’t have enough time to always link up with every one of them.  I link when I can, when I have something worthy of linking up, and when I know that I have time for the commenting.  When I get behind in the commenting I have to put linking aside all together.

As a blogger who also runs her own linky, I am ALWAYS reading, commenting, and sharing  on almost every blog post I read.  Sometimes to the point that I don’t even have time to write or read anything besides those blogs.

And I love to read.

And I love to write.

And I love blogging.

I have a gazillion things to write about but I just haven’t had the time to write about them. There’s 24 drafts in my draft folder right now.  What does that tell you?

I have 2 T-ball games, dance classes, T-ball party, awards ceremony, Memorial Day glamping, two graduations, hair and car appts in the city, dress rehearsals, a dance recital and then preparing for our first big summer vacation…all in the next 3 weeks.  I am sure I am missing something in there.


So yes, this is indeed why I have decided that I must let go of the linky guilt.  Even the blogging guilt.  That’s the great thing about this being my blog…I can do what I want to with it.

Same goes for those of you who sometimes may not have time to link with #momsterslink.  I indeed understand and don’t take it personally.  As long as I see you all linked up from time to time I am happy.

We are all busy not only with blogging but with home, kids, spouses…LIFE!


Linkys are a lot of work to run.  For those of you considering starting one, I would suggest that you understand that most of your blog reading will be done reading the blogs that link up.  And if your linky is successful it will become harder to have time to write and network.

I have tried putting myself on a blogging schedule but it inevitably gets messed up due to my husband’s work schedule because on his days off there’s stuff to do and I know for awhile there he thought I was having a love affair with my blog.

I am also trying to gather more knowledge for my love of photography and design.  Which sometimes with my OCD can become completely time consuming due to perfection and getting something exactly how I want it or watching tutorials to learn something new.

I encourage everyone to let go of the linky guilt if you are suffering from it.  If you host one and need a break then take one.  BREATHE.  There’s so much more to life than linkys.  Buuuuut…it is the best way to find your blogging posse, get your blog read, and meet new bloggers.

So linky on but sometimes take some time off if you need to.
