Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 173

Hello folks, how are you all this week? Ready for #WASO??!


Welcome back to another week of adoption blogs here on The Adoption Social.
We set this linky up so bloggers and readers could connect with each other and become a community and we hope you feel part of that. We couldn’t do it without you reading, sharing, commenting and talking on Twitter – so a big THANK YOU to you all. Please keep doing what you’re doing to make this community safe and supportive.

We have a theme this week. For those of you who are regular WASO-ettes ignore this but for newbies…our themes are optional, and just there in case you need a bit of inspiration, or want something to guide your blog posts. Never feel you have to write to theme.
This time around it’s ‘My bucket list’, so have you got one? What do you think of them? Can you share what’s on yours? Would you consider one? Can you think of a better name for them?

We’re looking forward to seeing what you write about, and will have a little round-up shortly in a few weeks time in our #WASO Top 3.

Here’s the linky, so get linking!

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 172

Hello, it’s time again for the Weekly Adoption Shout Out!172

Welcome back to #WASO, it’s time to get your typing fingers ready, and get those blog posts written and linked up.

There’s no theme this week, so this post is a quick one – just add your latest, best or funniest posts, or maybe you have a post that you think deserves a bit more love. The linky form is below, waiting and ready for you. It won’t close until late Sunday evening (GMT).

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 171

Welcome back to another week of adoption blogs at the Weekly Adoption Shout Out!


How’s your week been? Sunny or stormy? Weather wise or in other ways? Tell us about it in your blog posts this week. Or, if you need a bit of inspiration you can use our theme ‘If I had 5 minutes peace’….just think, you could finish that cuppa, start a blog post, even power nap! Tell us what you’d do if you could have 5 minutes peace.

You know what to do…

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 170

Come and join us for the Weekly Adoption Shout Out!Week 170

It’s time to get your typing fingers out, get the words flowing and join in with the Weekly Adoption Shout Out.
We’re theme free this week, so you can add whichever blog posts you like, and of course, in turn you’ll be able to read a host of different blogs on all manner of subjects that relate to adoption in some way.

It would be great if you could share the blog love and either comment or share on any you read.

The linky is below, and it’s hopefully fairly self-explanatory on how to fill it in, but if you have any problems please do contact us for help.

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 169

Another Friday, another #WASO!Week 169

Hello again, and welcome back to the Weekly Adoption Shout Out. It’s week 169 can you believe it? We have a theme this week – don’t worry it’s optional so you don’t have to join in, but if you want a little inspiration or a starting point for your blog you could use ‘What Makes You Feel Good’.

As always, please do like, comment and share as many #WASO posts as you can. It’s a great boost to bloggers to see comments and shares, and it’s nice to see that readers can relate to and empathise with posts. Be sure to include the hashtag #WASO in your comments, tweets and Facebook posts too.

Because it’s a bank holiday weekend, we’ll be extending the linky so it’ll remain open an extra day. Go forth and link you lovely people….

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 168

Friday – that means it’s time for #WASO.

168If you haven’t taken part before, it’s quite simple, just copy the web address for the post you want to link (that bit’s important, not just your blog address, but specifically the address for the post), and paste it into the form at the bottom of this blog post. We do our very best to read and share them all each week on Twitter and Facebook, and hopefully therefore adding more traffic to your blogs, and gaining you more readers.

Our blogging community is brilliant, and they read and share as much as they can too, so get involved, say ‘Hi’ on Twitter, and make some new friends.

There’s no theme this week, so just join in with your best, worst, favourite or newest post.

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 167

Yes, that time again already – it’s the Weekly Adoption Shout Out

week 167

How has your week been? I must admit that mine hasn’t been the best week with medical emergencies and a safeguarding at school incident that I witnessed as well as being an exceptionally busy week with visitors, helping out a friend and a birthday to prepare for!
So, I’m hoping that some of your blog posts might calm me down and cheer me up.

There is a theme this week. It’s ‘This Week I…’ and I’m hoping to read all sorts. Whose perspective will you write from? Will it be positive or negative? A diary entry or a list? I’m anticipating a range of posts.

Now, as most of you know there aren’t really any rules, but we do appreciate you sharing as may posts as you can and showing your support by commenting on posts. If you include our hashtag #WASO in your comment then the blogger knows how you found them too. If you feel unable to do these, that’s OK too.

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 166

Welcome to a bright and sunny week of #WASO

Week 166It’s that time again when we fling open the doors and invite you all in, metaphorically speaking of course! In reality, we ask you to copy and paste your posts into our Weekly Adoption Shout Out linky, and in return, we do our best to share posts (when we can).

There’s no theme this week, just an open invitation for your new, latest and best posts.
If you’re not out enjoying the sunny weather, then come along and add your post below, and read a couple of the others perhaps?

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 165

It’s that time of the week again…so get your posts ready and join in with #WASO.

165How has your week been? Have you been writing lots this week? Ready to join  in?
We have a theme for you this week which is ‘Unexpected Support’, so please do share those unusual places where your support has come from, those people that you wouldn’t have expected to hear from…

Of course, our themes are never compulsory, so if you don’t fancy writing about ‘Unexpected Support’ then please add your other posts to the linky below:

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 164

Weekly Adoption Shout Out time…week 164

Welcome back to another week of adoption based blogs within a supportive community. This time we have no theme so we look forward to the posts that you decide to link up this week – perhaps it’s a catch up, maybe an opinionated piece, a poem or even a photo based blog post.

The linky is below for you to add that post to, but before you link up, have a quick read through of our friendly Do’s…

DO Please share your favourites on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #WASO.
DO Type in your blog url carefully, else it won’t work.
DO Comment on the blogs that link up, and let them know you found them through #WASO.
DO remember to add your own link, after reading the others.
DO check back as new blogs are linked throughout the weekend.

And have a think about adding our badge to your blog, or the post you decide to link. This’ll show others that you join in the #WASO community. (If you need help, we wrote a post about how to do it here for blogger and here for wordpress.)

Anyway, without any further ado, here’s the linky, so go getting adding those blog posts.
