4. Mandatory  FOLLOW FRENZY:

We require that all bloggers who link to the  Keep Love in Lent carnival  participate  in the FOLLOW FRENZY. We’re sorry, but this time around, the follow frenzy is not optional. However, you will have a minimized group of only 10-12 bloggers to click to, read, enjoy and comment upon, over a week!

Here’s how:

* Once the linky closes on 3/10/14, the admins of the Keep Love linky will  email ALL who’ve linked. We will provide you with  info  regarding a group to which you will be “assigned.”

* You are  asked to visit the blogs in your group  ( there will be approx 10-12 ) and  leave meaningful comments.

* You are asked to visit and comment  between Monday 3/10 and Monday 3/17.


~ And that’s IT for the participation guidelines.~

 ~ Important Dates~

1.      Complete   this form  by Feb 24, 2014 so that the admins of the Keep Love in Lent carnival can assess interest level.  This is not a hard and fast commitment; we are just gauging interest.

2. Write your post and include the special intro information, link-up button and hostess links

3. Link your Lenten post between 3/3/14 and 3/10/14 at any of the five hostesses’ blogs using the linky tool.
