Week 11 Ashley and Laurie Linkup

Week 11 has been another cold one here in the uk! I wore gloves and scarf for the first time recently. However. this week has been good to me, I hope it was good for you too!

I was given a home grown bunch of flowers from a 95 year old man , including this pompom dahlia! Isn’t it a beauty?

My Week 11 So far:

Blogging stuff

At the end of last week I had my head down and was working hard on my blog. At the beginning of this year I migrated to WordPress (the best thing ever) but the move highlighted that some of my old blogger posts have not been optimised for seo correctly so I am ploughing through my older posts and tidying everything up for google! It is a big job.

Fun Stuff:

This little pooch of mine, appeared on my Instagram feed and got the most likes for the week!


Week 11 Ashley and Laurie Linkup


Laurie and I met up twice this week once on Sunday for the Stylist live Show at Olympia, London (so much fun) and then again yesterday for some press shows…more on those later

I am sure you know how a link up works, but if not a quick recap for you…

When and where:

Every Thursday from 7am, on both our blogs.


Any post on any subject you like from the last week. Instagram pics welcome too! (Please note your links are added are in random order.)


  1. You will discover new blogs to read and other people can discover your blog too. Win win!
  2. Laurie and I will each pick someone to feature each week from the week before, on both our blogs.
  3. It’s going to be lots of fun.

Link-up Etiquette

“We dont like rules, anything goes…just play nice and be polite” 

However, because you are getting two links for the price of one, all we ask is that you leave a comment on both our blogs?  Afterall you wouldn’t go to a party and ignore the host now would you?

(We may choose to remove your link if you haven’t done this!)


If you like a pretty badge (who doesn’t?) then we would love you to use this one and spread the news.

    The Stylist event looks like great fun! I’m still going through my old posts and optimising SEO/restoring missing photos after migrating to WordPress – it’s taking forever!

    That is a gorgeous Dahlia. No one can grow like 90 year olds. They have the gardening knowledge. It’s been a floral week for you. My blogs arent SEO at all and I’m not sure that I care that much 🙂

      Thanks Anne Marie
      I love these flowers too! Seo is only really important if you want to make money from your blog!

    Sounds like a great week! I love meeting authors in person; it’s just a fun time! I moved to WordPress over the summer – I do love it, but still getting the hang of everything.

      Hi lauren
      Thanks for your comment and yes it does take a little time, wish I had just started with wp in the first place!

    Another great post, Ashley! Thanks so much for sharing your week with us. How fun that you and Laurie get to meet up and work on other projects together. You both look fabulous in that photo together. And those jeans you are wearing are just spectacular!


    • 20/11/2017 / 10:10

      Hi Shelbee! Those jeans are my favourite and I wear them a lot!
      Yes I love to meet up with Laurie and chat all things blog related!
