The Festive Christmas Quiz

Christmas

Christmas is my favourite time of year. Bar none. No scrooging in this house – our tree is up, we’ve already started the shopping and the wrapping and I don’t even mind the odd Christmas song in the shops. Bring it on I say! All I want now is a bit of snow!

As you can imagine, we’re going to get very, very festive on this blog over the next month or so, but we’re beginning with a general overview of the festive season in our house. This is a quiz all about my Christmas favourites… the songs, the food and the fun activities we get up to. This is really the first Christmas where Short Rib has been properly aware of what’s going on, so it’s heading to be the most exciting one yet!

Increase Your Blog’s DA – Oh My Blog! – August 2017 Edition

standard July 20, 2017 14 responses
With summer very much in full swing, it’s time to look ahead to August’s edition of Oh My Blog – the monthly blog link up that is designed to help bloggers of all sizes, shapes and niches increase their domain authority. Unbelievably, we’re heading into the 8th month of the year (it’ll be Christmas before we know it!) and I’m afraid it’s getting to that time where the little’uns are preparing to go back to school. With that in mind, this month, the theme is School Days and we’re encouraging bloggers to re-live those awkward school discos, ridiculous crazes and questionable fashion choices! C’mon, it’ll be fun!
 
The sign ups are now open, so if you would like to take part, be sure to comment on this post to confirm your interest! 
 
Oh My Blog! is a linky with a difference. It’s designed specifically for one reason, really. To help increase Domain Authority of the blogs that participate. I’ll not go into detail about what Domain Authority is (there are loads of blog posts about that already), but if you want for your blog to be found then you need it. The way to get it, is guest posts linking back to your blog.
