Special note to bloggers who link up with us…

Have you noticed that the same people are being featured week after week?  If you are not being featured it is most likely because you don’t link back to Tot School Gathering Place in your post.  Only 3 blogs linked back to us last week.  I would love to feature more of you and kindly ask that you link back to us, it’s simple blogger kindness. Please don’t link up with us if you have no plans of linking back to us. I hate to be a linky-meanie but I’ve been running the Tot School linky for over 7 years, and it has never been this bad {regarding bloggers linking back as a courtesy to the host}. If you need any help with linking back, read here.

Please read above paragraph before linking up with us!
