The Saturday Share Link Up is live – better late than never!
I can’t believe that I’ve failed to get it out in time after just one week, though I have a lame excuse, sir: The dog ate my homework.
Er no sorry, I mean a car alarm was going off outside our house all evening yesterday (a few feet from our front door) and it totally distracted me from what I was meant to be doing, i.e. this post. We were on the phone to the non-emergency police services, who passed us onto environmental services, who passed us onto… You get the picture. After half an hour you’re truly fed up, after an hour you’re wanting to tear your ear drums out.
Anyway! it’s now live, here’s a quick explanation as we’re only in week two of this new linky:
As many of you know I host a Monday link up called #iwillwearwhatilike, where everyone can join in by adding their outfits. However I always stress that it’s for outfits only, but I still get people linking up anything-that’s-not-an-outfit post. So this is a brand new weekend linky that’s for everyone to share anything and everything, old or new, from your Instagram or blogs, no limit to how many you link up… use the hashtag #SaturdayShareLinkUp if you’re tweeting about it (tweet your link, add a picture and I’ll retweet it)!
(Fridays 9pm UK time, 4pm EDT, 1pm PDT; Saturdays 7am AEDT)
THIS WEEK I HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING NONE OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL SUPERMODEL HERSELF, TWIGGY
Each week I’ll also share my favourite blog post, Instagram post or Facebook post – this week I’m sharing a little snippet of some of my Instagram posts and Stories as I had the pleasure of meeting none other than the original supermodel herself, Twiggy!
I was attending the Specsavers Spectacle of the Year Awards evening in London – I was asked to cover the event on my social media and had no idea that it was going to be such a celebrity-filled bash. It was hosted by the (totally brilliant) Rylan Clark, and I think just about every reality TV star and D-list celeb was in attendance.
But there was only one person I really wanted my picture taken with – and that was Twiggy:
It was actually a very fun night – events like these are the best sort of work as a blogger – meeting Twiggy as part of my job is something I can put up with…! We also raised about £88,000 on the night for the wonderful charity Kidscape, which works to promote the anti-bullying message and shine a spotlight on child protection issues. Proud stuff to be part of.
So all that’s left to say is… LET’S GET THIS [LINK UP] PARTY STARTED!!

Thank you for joining the #SaturdayShareLinkUp! Designed to allow you to share anything you like on ANY topic, it [usually] goes live every Friday at 9pm UK time and will stay open for a week. You can share blog posts or Instagram posts, old posts or new posts, and link up as many as you like.
But PLEASE be kind and leave a link somewhere on your post, and share your post using the hashtag #SaturdayShareLinkUp – if you tweet your link with the hashtag I’ll retweet it to my followers for you 🙂
Here’s a hot tip for linking up:
Use clear, bright images (crop in close if necessary) and add a relevant, descriptive title (you’ve got 75 characters to use). These sorts of thumbnails and text always get the most clicks, so don’t waste the opportunity to increase traffic and engagement on your best work!
WHAT HAS BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR WEEK? TELL ME IN THE COMMENTS OR TWEET ME @NOTLAMB!
P.S. Why (usually!) Friday night? Because hopefully it catches most of my readers in their different time zones at a time they’re all up 🙂
