It's OK Linky

Week 25 #itsok Linky

A new week, a new link up!!!

Thank you to everyone that joined our little group of linkers last week! I have been so busy organising the launch of South Africa’s (Yup that’s where I am from) newest most brutal and honest parenting platform, along with my awesome partner Leigh Tayler of  The Ugly Truth Of Being A Mom.


Parenty believes in a world with more than one story of parenthood. And we are here to offer a voice to them all. Parenty is a space for parents to escape to, to find comfort in, to share and listen, to seek and find, to laugh, cry and rage.

I won’t be linking up one of my own pieces but actually one of hers. The whole idea of having a “virtual village” where we support each other when things are NOT ok, is exactly what we believe in. Just like the #itsok linky. It’s  a safe space where we encourage each other instead of judging one another

Onto the Linky.

What’s this linky about?

In a sentence, it’s about cutting ourselves some slack as parents. We’ve all been there – that place where we feel we’re not doing our best as mums or dads, that we aren’t giving our 100 percent day in and day out. Where mom-guilt shrouds us every time we bottle-feed instead of breastfeed or give our toddlers chicken nuggets instead of a home-cooked-from-scratch meal. Where we are constantly playing catch-up instead of enjoying our kids.

We at the #itsok HQ want to change that. Want parents to feel less guilt and more joy in parenting. The linky is a safe place where you won’t be judged for not being perfect (perfection is relative, anyway), but appreciated for being the best parent YOU can be. For doing the best YOU can. For Perfectly Imperfect Parenting, which leaves you and your children happier!

It aims to help, inspire and reassure parents that they are in fact doing just fine, and that #itsok to not be ok sometimes.

Let me just say. I LOVE the idea behind this linky. Learning to cut ourselves some slack, in this rollercoaster ride called parenting, is something that I am trying to learn.

What if you are not a blogger! Trust me, you will find some very inspiring and NORMAL parents blog posts here, so why not have a read!

Righto, now onto this week! I will be hosting this week and will comment on ALL your lovely posts. My co-hosts will comment on a couple each too (so you will all get comments from at least two of us, plus the regular comments). And of course, we will re-tweet your posts and share them on our Facebook page and Pinterest board as well. So much linky love…

The Rules

Parent bloggers keeping it real

The #ItsOK linky is all about celebrating real-life parenting. Please link up with posts on this theme ONLY. We’re not too keen on random sponsored posts. We’re all about Mum (and Dad) life, warts and all.

1. Add ONE link to the link up below

2. Comment on the host’s post

3. Please comment on the post before yours as well as another of your choice. In terms of linky etiquette this is pretty much the golden rule. Remember the more you give, the more engagement (and bloglove) you get!

4. The linky will run every Tuesday morning at 7 am until Thursday evening at 11.55 pm. Each of the five hosts will be taking it in turns to host the linky

5. Please add the linky badge to the bottom of your post or display it on your sidebar

6. Follow and tweet us with your post’s link to @MamavilleTales @TheMumConundrum @momof2lgs @twinstantrums @onemessymama4 using the hashtag #itsok and the five of us will retweet you!

7. The hosts will choose their favourite post which will be featured the following week and will also provide a back link to your site. If your post is featured as one of our favourites then you are very welcome to display our lovely ‘#itsok Featured Post’ badge on your sidebar.

And here’s our swanky badge, to stick to your post or on your blog’s sidebar.
