This Year's Participants

Here we are, once again embarking on a month long celebration of Halloween. As of just a few minutes before launch time there are 197 participants to start with. No doubt more will be added in the next few days. To everyone involved I would like to say thank you. This year was the smoothest in terms of getting this list together. I have been hearing about some email problems, which I've also experienced at my end. If you don't see your blog on the list below, just email me at universalrobots@aol.com and include a link to your blog and how you'd like it named and it will be added asap. For anyone who is coming at this new and would like to join in you are welcome to do so, but please read this post first. 

I know all of you are now in your costumes and feeling the emptiness of your trick or treat bags and buckets. Below you will find the addresses that give out all the best candy. There are a lot of them, and everyone puts a lot of effort into their Halloween countdowns, so try to visit everyone at least once and be sure to leave a treat in their buckets too by leaving a comment for them so they know that their hard work is being seen and appreciated. Remember too to check back here for further posts from Shawn and I. You'll find some unexpected treats here, too.

Let the trick or treating begin!
