Lent 2014 is Coming ~ Join the "Keep Love in Lent" Blog Link-Up Hosted by Catholic Bloggers' Network!

Here are All the Details You Need to Join the "Keep Love in Lent" Blog Link-Up...
Are you looking for a new approach to Lent this year?
Then the Keeping LOVE in LENT Blog Link-Up 2014 is for you!
The link-up is open to all bloggers, particularly Catholics and Christians of all denominations who observe LENT. Share your unique perspective and  write about anything that pertains to the blog theme!

For example:
* tips on how you and your family keep LOVE in LENT
stories to encourage others to do so
* books and activities (even recipes!) that help keep the Lenten observances of fasting
* extra prayer, sacrifices, cleaning and giving clothes away to the poor;
* special Catholic devotions and practices such as extra weekday Masses or Stations of the Cross, etc.
* any other relevant Lenten focus on praying, fasting, giving alms

Kindly write about the theme provided. We do not moderate or screen posts but we do reserve the right to exclude your entry from the list of link-up participants should your post be offensive, irrelevant to the link-up theme, contain personal attacks, off-topic articles, articles that are anti-Christ or articles aimed to market products or services.
Thank you.

To participate, please follow these steps:
STEP 1. Write your blog post on the theme, "Keeping LOVE in LENT" 
** At the beginning of your blog link-up post, please include the following introduction, along with the Keep Love in LENT button ~~~
**ALSO please include by copying and pasting the names and contacts of the
five hostesses so that all who read your post may  have the opportunity
to click to one of us and  join in!
"I’m participating in the Keeping LOVE in LENT Blog Link-Up 2014,
hosted by the Catholic Bloggers Network.
We'll be sharing different ways, tips, stories and real-life experiences that will help us focus on
 Lenten sacrifices, prayer and good deeds
 and how to carry them out with

the bottom of my post so that

STEP 2. Link your post to any of these hostesses' blogs  between  Monday, March 3 and Monday, March 10:

***And bloggers, please remember to copy and paste our info to the bottom of your post so that your readers, who may also blog,  can join in the fun and link up.***

All five of us who are  hostessing are committed to strong visibility on social media for the benefit of the Catholic Bloggers' Network Lenten link-up. Our blogs are accessible by email subscription as well. We encourage all who participate in the Keep Love in Lent Link-Up to click to all of the hostesses and follow us so that you don't miss updates about the Lenten Link-Up! And besides, we'd love to stay in touch regularly! 

We require that all bloggers who link to the  Keep Love in Lent Link-Up 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 bloggers to click to, read, enjoy and comment upon.

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.~
Let's make this easy and sum it up:
 ~ Important Dates~

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

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

3. Participate in the mandatory follow frenzy between 3/10/14 and 3/17/14.

We're excited to read your entries and help spread the word on how to keep LOVE in LENT!

Thank you for stopping in to read more about "Keep Love in Lent".  Hope to see your links
