ON OUR FIRST DAY WITH THE LINK SOME LINKS DIDN'T WORK.  THIS WAS DUE TO NOT PUTTING THE URL (ADDRESS OF PICTURE) IN THE FIRST BOX AS REQUESTED BY THE SERVER.  MAKE SURE TO COPY AND PASTE YOUR URL FIRST AND THEN TYPE IN THE NAME/DESCRIPTION IN THE SECOND BOX. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE.

NOTICE TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AT TAKE A WORD


Commenting is hard work on the blogs.  This has persuaded us to apply an InLinkz feature which will allow everyone to link his or her picture to each challenge, allowing fellow members to click on each link to leave a comment starting next Monday. Unfortunately, thumbnails won't be added.  When you are linking, make sure to type in your name and the theme word where indicated.

As this is new to us there may be some glitches at first.  If the link isn't working next Monday, leave comments in the usual way.  If you would prefer not to use the link system, the comments section will still be in place.
