Was your Weekly Wrap-Up link deleted? If you read my blog regularly, you know that I hate confrontation and I don’t want anyone to feel treated unfairly. However, in order for the Wrap-Up to be fair to everyone and work the way it was intended, I have to ensure that the guidelines are being followed.
First of all, check to make sure your link was actually deleted. If a link above yours was deleted, it might have bumped yours up a few places.
Second, I will automatically delete any posts that link back to the front page of your blog, instead of directly to your Weekly Wrap-Up post. This is done as a courtesy to the other participants. If you’ve linked to the front page of your blog, instead of directly to the Wrap-Up post, it makes it hard for others to find your Wrap-Up post.
Third, posts may be automatically deleted is if they don’t offer a link back to the current Weekly-Wrap Up. That is done as a courtesy both to your readers and to me since the goal of the Weekly Wrap-Up is to provide a central hub for homeschooling families to share the highlights of their week, as well as tips and ideas from which others can learn. That can’t happen if all participants don’t link back to the Wrap-Up so that others can join in.
Finally, your link may be deleted if it doesn’t actually contain a Weekly Wrap-Up post. I’m all about generating blog traffic for everyone, but it’s not fair to everyone participating if some people aren’t actually linking to a Weekly Wrap-Up post.
The point of the Wrap-Up is to share resources, tips and ideas that have worked for your family and that can’t happen if the guidelines aren’t followed. Thanks for understanding. If your link is deleted, please feel free to re-enter it correctly because it really is more fun when everyone gets a chance to join in.
