NEWS: Share Your Snaps! Part of 2018 Link-Up. #LifeThisWeek 2018. 2017.114.

In the past few years I have really enjoyed linking up to Photo link ups.

This year, however, saw most of those I linked up with regularly no longer continue for various reasons. Blogging is like that as we all know. I too have changed the frequency of my blog posts in 2017 from almost every day to twice a week. For the chance to see more blogs and to visit them too, I link up to a number of people’s regular link-ups.

Mondays: mine! Alicia’s here on One Mother Hen called Open Slather and here with Kell on her blog All Mum Said for Mummy Mondays.

Tuesdays: Kylie’s at Kylie Purtell here called I Blog on Tuesdays

Thursdays: Leanne’s at Deep Fried Fruit here for Lovin’ Life.

That is it! I no longer link to US-based or predominantly US blogs as there is not a lot of connection back to the this blog.

But, here’s the thing. I miss my chance to link up photos. I know some link-ups are called Wordless for the fact that they are all photo-based and that’s cool. However, I could rarely add mine without some sort of explanation.

So….I am not introducing a new link-up as that is both a cost to me in terms of money and time so I am doing this:

Each 5th Week on my Monday Life This Week Link-Up will be titled Share Your Snaps.

Snaps of course being an old-fashioned word for photos!

If you have some photographs to share, then that’s your chance OR continue posting that week what ever you planned . As you know Life This Week is prompt-optional!

I chose each week ending in a 5 or a 0 so I could remember….

So, I hope that if you are a blogger who also likes to share your snaps, then the place to do that in link-up form will be every 5th week in the Life This Week Link Up held here in 2018.

The first week for Share Your Snaps will be Monday 29 January 2018.

I would love to know what you all think of this idea. Happy to hear your suggestions too!


On Tuesdays I link here with Kylie for I Blog on Tuesdays.

On Thursdays I link here with Leanne for Lovin’ Life.





  1. Great idea! So many talented photographers out there. I am not one of them. Can they be your photo fails as well? Haha

    • Share Your Snaps will not discriminate…and as it is not starting till Feb 2018 you can begin practising now!! This is a sharing space, not a competitive one!! Thanks Ness!! D xx

  2. Great idea Denyse. I enjoy looking at everyones photos. Now I will know where to find them 🙂

    • Thanks Nicole. I will need to do a few reminders …for me as well…when we get closer to the time.The first week will be Monday 29 January 2018. I hope you share some of your snaps too. D xx

  3. Love that idea! I also used to try US link ups but I really didn’t find any value in them. So big, awful impersonal comments, some police WHO you comment on… not for me.

    • Yes it is disappointing that we don’t connect as much with other countries. I will publish more about the weeks for this as we get closer to the end of the year. I had to pick a way I would remember hence the 5 and zero weeks. Thanks for your support! D xx The first week for Share Your Snaps will be Monday 29 January 2018.

  4. Well, I’m not a talented photographer but I do like sharing my snaps so I will have to remember to join in! I usually do a 10 on 10 photo project every month but sometimes change the day of the month to suit me best. This month I’m posting 10 on 11 – so tell me, when’s the first link up? I’d try and work it out for myself but maths is not my strong point!

    • There is no such rule noting talent in Sharing Your Snaps dear Sammie. Your snaps from your recent holiday have been great memories to share. We wont be starting this until 2018 and well into it so I shall remind you (and me) !! D xx NB: The first week for Share Your Snaps is Monday 29 January 2018.

  5. I think it’s a great idea, Denyse. I’d love to play along! You’ll have to remind me though 🙂

    • I promise. Like I said to others, I too will need to remember!! It will be good to share more pics I think too. Denyse xx The first one will be Monday 29 January 2018.

  6. Great idea! I used to love doing Wordless Wednesdays, but like you my posts ended up being anything but wordless! I’d love to join in but some weeks I’m hard pressed to get an IBOT post together. However being the 5th monday of the month might work for, I can plan ahead, I have no shortage of photos, after all!

    • I am glad to read you can see value in it. It wasn’t worth starting another link up and some bloggers never want to share pics but others, like you and me, want to and unless it was on our own blogs not much was shared. I hope this changes things a little and I will do lots of reminders as we get closer. The first one is Monday 29 January 2018. Love your support for it. Thank you Denyse xx

  7. Great idea, I love looking at photos.

    • Thanks Anne and you always have some pretty wonderful ones to share too. Look forward to seeing more of them in 2018! Denyse x The first week for Share Your Snaps is Monday 29 January 2018.

  8. That’s a great idea Denyse. I’m not a hugely visual person but did occasionally join the Wordless Wednesday posts when I had pics I wanted to share that didn’t need a lot of explanation.


    • Thanks Deb for coming on board. I like the idea of sharing my pics and am glad that this idea has been received well. Now it will be up to me to do the reminders..with me on that list first!! Denyse x The first week for this is Monday 29 January 2018.

  9. As you are probably aware I love photos and my blog is very visual. I think this is a great idea and will try to remember to share a snap. #TeamLovinLife

    • Yes I am the same!! However I also missed the opportunity to photos just for themselves (even with a brief explanation) so I am hoping this will become somewhere others such as yourself visit to connect and link up each 5th week. I shall put out reminders but they will be on the static home page in 2018 !! Denyse x The first week for Share Your Snaps is Monday 29 January 2018.

  10. Fabulous idea Denyse! I too miss the Wordless Wednesday link ups (mine were never wordless either LOL). I’ve struggled a bit this year – mostly managing only 1 blog post per week but sometimes 2. I hope that next year I can manage 2 on a more consistent basis. #TeamLovinLife

    • Thanks for your support. Yes I know that we had a few we could share our photos on earlier this year and back further. However, at least 3 I know have stopped that now (for all the reasons people do of course) but I missed it. So, it’s here with a new name and everything fifth week – I will keep everyone in the loop about that. The first one is Monday 29 January! Look forward seeing your snaps! Denyse x

  11. I think this is a fantastic idea Denyse, I’ll need to get out and improve my photography skills before the launch in January.

    • Now now Jenni, just have fun with this OK? It will be sharing snaps and in no way is it competitive but I would love to think it gives us more insight into everyone as we share what we see in our part of the world and why we like it. The first one will be Monday 29 January 2018. Denyse x

  12. This just might be a theme I can actually meet…I love sharing snaps! Great idea! #TeamLovinLife

  13. Perfect! Sounds like fun. I do miss my Wordless Wednesdays (which were NEVER wordless) #teamlovinlife
