Welcome to The Dad Network’s Big Fat Linky of the Week #bigfatlinky

Last week has been my favourite week for reading good posts – they were brilliant, so thank you if you linked up and if you didn’t, make sure you check them out.

I’d just like to pause momentarily and point out our brand new guide to linkys. If you are new and have never linked up anywhere before, take a look at the guide and you’ll see how simple it is.

The Big Fat Linky of the Week, co-hosted with my good friend Inside Martyn’s Thoughts,  gives you the opportunity to share recently written posts or any old corkers you have hidden away in your treasure chest. It could be a post that you want to share with a wider audience, or one that is particularly special to you or just one of your many fantastic pieces of literature!

We’re not precious about what you link up as long as it’s a good read.

Remember, we’ll be here each week for you to link up your great blogposts.

This week’s post, from us, was post born from our network of over 700 dads. We asked the group what advice they would give a new dad. The answers were thick and fast and to good to just leave to sit in Facebook’s mainframe for years to come. So I sifted through it and have compiled into the ultimate New Dad Survival Guide. But the great thing about this guide is that it’s real advice from real dads. We’d love for you to share it with any new or expectant dads you might know or on your networks if you have new dads visit. Also, why don’t you add any advice that you might have in a comment?

So, I’m sure you know what to do, but if not, here’s some rules, guidance & general etiquette: (Please remember to comment on a few other posts and add the badge to your linked post too.)

#1 Write to your hearts content & link it up or link an existing post, just remember to add the badge below or link back to The Dad Network :)

#2 Add your link by using the commonly found (& convenient) linky button. That will add your image and link to this post.

#3 Leave a comment on the hosts main blog post and on a few other links that tickle your fancy. Please comment on at least 2 posts for every 1 post you link up. Some of you have been linking up LOADS of posts, which is great but your comments must reflect it!

#4 Add the badge to the blogpost you have linked up.

#5 Don’t forget to tweet about it! #bigfatlinky
