    1. It's fixed-- apparently Blogger didn't save our correct date. THANKS for noticing! Our challenges always end on the Saturday after it's been posted. :)

  2. I see the same deadline typo of Feb 8 and Linky has correct deadline Feb 12. Noticed for the first time that there is an indication to link to I always link to the blog post by clicking on the title & making a link and saw the indication to link to for first time. Was wondering why link to and not the challenge blog post? I've changed my entries to have both links and would appreciate a response. You can respond here and I'll ck back that way others can see the response as well.
