    Hi! I am leaving this comment because I would like for you to update post with the correct link. I am going to be deleting my old site (Lorraine Reguly’s Life) and so would really appreciate it if you could update your post with a link to Wording Well. This is my new site, and because I have moved my “old” post to my “new” site, you will be left with a broken link if you don’t change it. I don’t want this to happen! Besides that it is still the same post it always was, but the domain name has changed. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but it is to me. The internet is forever – or at least until we change things, so, please, can you change this for me? (Thanks!)

      Sorry, Lorraine – My tool does not allow us to update or change links to past link parties once they’ve ended! Best of luck with your new site.

    I posted my link on Friday, and it showed up just fine. Now, today, I see that it has been removed. Can you please tell me if you removed it, and why? I’d like to know!

      Please delete or ignore that comment. Apparently, I need to get my eyes checked. I’m in spot 23. I was in spot 35. Ooops!

      Lorraine, what happens is after voting the posts get re-ordered based on who got the most votes, so that’s why it moved around.

      Yes, I see. Thanks for explaining it, though. 🙂
