Link Up Here! Mondays. #LifeThisWeek. 69/2020.

Link Up Here! Mondays. #LifeThisWeek. 69/2020.



Both Sue from here and Leanne from here have been hosting a great link up called MidLife Share The Love since January 2018 and now it is closing. Thanking them both for their kindness and caring over the years and with their permission, I am writing a blog post to let readers here know my Link Up Called #LifeThisWeek continues….

What Is Life This Week About?

In September 2016 I began the link-up (or linky as some call it) on my blog:

It’s been almost EVERY single Monday since then.

Here is the first post which explains more and why!

I called it Life This Week as it’s a very general name and bloggers can choose to link up an original post of theirs, which is a previously published one or a new one.

To make it more fun and to add some direction for me and others who follow the link up, I set up OPTIONAL prompts for each week.

They are shown in advance on the home page, and here they are until the end of 2020.

#LifeThisWeek Returns on Monday 4 January 2021. 


There are no better ways, for me, to connect with more bloggers from Australia and around the world that this regular link up of mine.


Here’s what I say about ‘joining in’….kind of a rules thing I guess!

You can link up something old or new, just come on in.

* Please add just ONE post each week! NOT a link-up series of posts, thank you.

* Feel free to go with the prompt for the week to add your ‘take’ on the prompt. Or not.

* Please do stay to comment on my post as I always reply and it’s a ‘bloggy thing’ to do!

* Check out what others are up to: Leave a comment on a few posts, because we all love our comments, right!

* Add a link back to this blog in your post somewhere, or on your sidebar or let others know somewhere you are linking up to this blog’s Life This Week.

*Posts deemed by me, the owner of the blog & the link-up, to be unsuitable for my audience will be deleted without notice. These may include promotions, advertorials and any that are overly religious or political or in any way offensive  in nature.

I always respond to your comments on my blog post on Life This Week.

I keep the link up open from (Australian Eastern Standard Time) Monday at 5.00. a.m until Wednesday at 5.00 p.m.

I then comment on your blog post and share my appreciation for the bloggers who link up on twitter.

Do come on board and join in when you can. You are only asked to comment on my blog post and a few others if you can. No link and leave, please! We love the conversations here on:

Life This Week

I do warmly invite you to share a blog post for Life This Week on a Monday going forward.

Take care and thank you to all who blog, comment and share…it really helps us keep connected!


Sharing this post here: and here….thank you!



  1. Hi Denyse – I’m going to miss my Wednesday #MLSTL party guests, but it will be lovely if some of them pop over to join your Monday party. I’ll be visiting each week to link up and I’m so pleased that you feel inspired enough to keep going after 4 years!
    I’ll be seeing you on Monday and thanks for being part of our party each week too – it’s been a great couple of years xxx

    • Hi Leanne, yes I can understand that it will be missed too as it’s been part of your Wednesday routine on-line for a long time. You and Sue have helped make some great connections with bloggers around the world.

      The final two Women of Courage posts will be over the next 2 Wednesdays. Then the series will close. It’s been amazing and a privilege to share the stories.

      I will be honoured if some bloggers from #mlstl come to link up for #lifethisweek on a Monday.

      I feel very pleased knowing that you will remain connected here in the blogosphere and look forward to seeing you link up next week. “Old post or new, on or off prompt too”.

      Warm wishes

  2. I will miss MLSTL too Denyse, but am so pleased you are introducing bloggers to join your link up each Monday. As you know I enjoy linking up and have appreciated the interesting blogs I’ve found here each week. Hope you are going OK after your recent health issues. #mlstl

    • I am delighted to have my link up as a regular routine in my life, keeping me well-connected and having purpose.

      So glad you have been part of this community and look forward to continuing our Monday connectiosn.

      The recovery is slow but, this time, I hope will be good!


  3. Thanks for your continued commitment and work in connecting people, Denyse. Greatly appreciated by so many and a great way to connect bloggers. Hope to see you there soon.

    • That is a privilege and pleasure Christine. I am so glad that I can maintain my link up as it’s a good way for me to remain connected and to have purpose in retirement!
      See you on Mondays when you link up.

  4. Hi Denyse, Thank you for setting up Mondays Life This Week – it sounds great! I’m visiting from MLSTL and I was going to miss not connecting with everyone so I really appreciate it. Thank you and see you on Mondays 😉

  5. I hope to see you and all the other wonderful bloggers next Monday. I am going to miss getting that email on Wednesday’s for #MLSTL. I have throughly enjoyed it and connecting with other like minded people has been amazing. Onwards to Mondays….Looking forward to catching up with you Denyse and everyone else xx…

    • Thank you so much Bree. I too will look forward to some ‘new to the Monday’ link up bloggers arriving on Mondays!
