Oldies but Goodies - Week 1


When you first started out blogging, I bet you spent hours constructing a new post - scrutinizing every sentence for spelling and grammar mistakes, re-reading it a hundred times to ensure you had written it to the best of your ability and thinking of original material that was entirely your own work.  The only downfall to those early days, was the number of visitors to your blog - most of us had very few readers - our mum, our best friend and sometimes our long-suffering spouse (if we were lucky!)

Earlier on this week, Sarah at Mum of Three World, tweeted me a link to an old post of hers, it was so funny that I actually laughed out loud!  She told me that she had written it at a time when followers were scarce and this particular post had very few comments and not many page views.  I quickly realised what a crime this was and voila! a new bloghop was born....

So, if you've got any old posts that you thought were sheer brilliance but sadly not many people were privvy to your comic wit or your literary talent, please link up below.  I intend to put this out for the masses every Friday, and it will stay open until last thing on Sunday.   

Each week there will be a theme and this week it is 'FUNNIES'

Here are the bloghop rules:

1) Enter your link and leave a comment below

2) Enter as many posts as you like

3) Your post must be at least 3 months old

4) Tweet using the #oldiesbutgoodies

5) Visit as many of the other blogs as you can and comment, comment, comment!

    1. No Problem at all, it's a shame that some of them didn't get the accolade they deserved first time round :)

  9. Great idea Suzanne! I will go through my old posts, though I think a lot of them might be pregnancy related so might not be ideal to reshare those. But I love the idea of reading some great old posts XXXX

  10. Ohh looks like this is going down a storm, well done. A couple of people have have used this idea before but I don't think anyone is doing it right now. They both used to get good link ups.

    1. Thanks for your encouragement Mich :) I've never seen a linky like this before so thought it was a good idea to give older posts an airing - if only for me to see some of the oldies as I'm pretty much a newbie! x

Thank you for reading. Your comments make my day! x
