Number 30 has had a Kinky Linky!

Unfortunately, we've had more Linky tool issues, which MAY have resulted in problems with entries to this week's Summer Holiday Challenge.

In trying to keep picture linkies for your entries, our free trial ran out... when we paid for the subscription to bring you picture linkies, we found that Linky Tools apparently does not automatically update the account, hiccup free!  After emails to Linky Tools creator, it appears that it is now up and running, and I hope, hiccup free.

Although it was beyond our control, we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We hope that no-one's entries have been lost in transition. If you have entered the challenge #30, please visit the challenge post to check that your entry is still there, as we can't retrieve any that may have been lost.


Thank you to to those that have sent comments with links to their challenges.... your entry will be counted!  

We hope now that the linky tool is running smoothly!
