The Big Fat Linky of the Week – 8 / 8 / 15

Don't miss a thing


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



Slightly different today. Yesterday #DoTheDadDance charity campaign was launched. Rather than comment on a post this week, I’d love it if you would join in the campaign. It’s easy, simple, fun and for a great cause; UNICEF.

1) Dads, film yourself dancing to your favourite song, with or without the children.

2) Upload it to social media using the hashtag #DOTHEDADDANCE and then tag / nominate some of your dad friends to do the same.

3) Donate £2 to UNICEF UK via a unique text code or by visiting

Don’t forget to tag The Dad Network in your videos as well, that way we can share them too!

So if you’re a dad, get involved and if you’re a mum, it’s time to get the smart phone out and film a dad! 

If you’re new, then check out our step by step guide to linkys? Hopefully it makes the whole linky thing, very clear!

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, exciting and interesting read.

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

So, I’m sure you know what to do by now, 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.

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

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

P.s I’m always happy to retweet your URL so send us a tweet once you’ve linked up – @thedadnetworkuk & remember #bigfatlinky
