The Monday Ante #6

Are you guys ready for another week of amazing posts, finding new great bloggers and a chance to be featured this Saturday? I know I am! So, let’s just get right to it!

And don’t forget, you can keep entering even after you win.


How is about you? One person from every link-up will have their post featured on C2C on Saturday just in time for weekend reading, gaining additional exposure for your blog. I will share your post with a link to your site and at least one social media option. This will also be publicized through my social media channels.

Why? Because you guys are awesome and the world needs to know! I want to say thank you for your readership and your support by helping to share and promote your work.

When. The link-up will open every Monday at 8am, closing every Wednesday at 11:55pm. (Time zone is CET - Central European Time which is GMT+1  - Greenwich Mean Time. If that is confusing, ahem, 6 hours later than EST. Hope that’s clear as mud.)

What you need to do. Look at your posts for the past week and pick your favorite. Come back here and link it up before the end of the day on Wednesday. That’s it! (aside from a few simple rules coming up)

What you don’t need to do. No badges. No prompts or topics - the post can be about  anything. No additional follows (aside from this blog). You don’t have to read the other submissions, but why would you not want to? Maybe you can find a new blog to love! Or you can just wait for the winner on Saturday and come back and congratulate them. It’s up to you because this is what???? ALL. ABOUT. YOU.


While I am trying my best to keep this simple and fun, there are just a few requirements for your entry to be accepted:

  • You must be a follower of this blog through Bloglovin’, email or WordPress. Obviously since I am doing this to support my readers, you need to be one. Duh. 
  • You must share this link-up via Twitter. Not only do we want people to participate, but we also want people to look forward to reading the winning post. There is a handy-dandy Twitter share button below you can use to make it easier or feel free to share on your own, but please use my twitter handle in your tweet so I know (@Casinos2Castles). If you don’t have Twitter, leave a comment and we can work on #1 why you don’t have Twitter and #2 an alternate way to promote if you are against twits.
  • No inappropriate, hateful or adult content. This one is a given, but I figured I’d better list it because, after all, your work will be highlighted on my blog; therefore, I am endorsing it.

That’s it! I am always open to suggestions so if you have ideas that you’d like to see or that you think will make this better, please share with me!

I’m looking forward to reading all of your great posts and I know selecting a winner will be difficult.

Again, thank you for being you and being a part of my blogosphere. <3


Now, link-up!

      Yay! I hope so! I’m ready to see your site when it’s all done. I know I’m always on my tablet and some pages don’t show up that way either. Thank you!!! I don’t know why it never occurred to me to use that pic before. :-)

        Oh there’s no shock factor with the new blog. I made it look like my site LOL. I do not cope with too many changes very well. LOL
        I saw it first on twitter and was like “why didn’t I think of that?!” LOL Ys, I’m jealous, just so you know. ;)

    Very cool header, Deanna. All this time, I thought I was following you and you weren’t posting over here… only on Muted. Alas… This is the 3rd time in a week, that I’ve found out that I’m not following someone I thought I was. No wonder I was missing some references! :-p

      Hi Dawn! That’s happened to me a few times lately too. But glad to see you over here and super excited that you joined my little link up! I also plan to respond to your email. The post I shared on muted yesterday has overwhelmed me with love and support and I haven’t had time to respond to the comments yet. Plus, I did another speakeasy story. :-) Thanks for the header compliment! I love Adam’s work because he’s so intuitive and unique.

        Adam’s fantastic! His work is very cool. He’s proposed an idea for me, but I’m old school and haven’t figured out what to do yet. Alas… But, I love what he’s done for so many other bloggers! The email will wait… whenever, if you feel like it. I’m working at Hospice all day today, so we may miss each other anyway.
