Hi Cryptsters,

FINALLY, it is almost time for our favorite time of year, OCTOBER AND HALLOWEEN! Whooo....

If you have not already signed up or your friends haven't, NOW is the time. I am closing sign up on the 1st this year as too much has gone on for me to do anything more other than the Countdown itself.

Dex and I will be around to your blogs but please be patient. Go visit others too and leave boo notes. We all love those. Remember to post every couple of days something Halloween-ish.

NOTE: You will notice a couple of changes this year. If you look above, you will see some tabs. They are: Crypt Keepers 2023, Countdown Instagram, and Home. Please explore those but in a nut shell, if you click on the Crypt Keepers one, you will be taken to a list of all the Crypt Keepers and their blogs. I had to do this for time sake this year and frankly, was a bit easier. PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING BUT DO CHECK YOUR LINKS THAT THEY WORK. I did not check any of the links so, if there is something wrong or you have been left off, just comment below and I will fix it. If you don't tell me, I don't know.

---->If you have not purchased this years t-shirt, the link is on the side bar. Remember that all proceeds go to charity. 

Finally, I got word that you are having issues with the badges. You will have to download them to your device and upload to your blog. Please add the link to this blog so everyone comes here.

Have a great October and check back here for updates and newer cobwebs.

Something Is Afoot! #countdowntohalloween2023

Boils and ghouls,

Have you noticed things are afoot here?  (See what I did there?) The theme this year is a take on "Graveyard Smash." We will be excited about what you come up with for the theme or of course, your own things too.

*The new 2023 t-shirt is ready for purchase. Again, it has been created by Chad Savage and all proceeds will be going to charity. You can find the link at the top right of this page to order.

*Chad once again created our fabulous badges based on the theme. You know how much we love those things on our blogs. Make sure to link them back to the Countdown blog.

*Hmm what else, what else? Oh, have you been checking out our Instagram all year long? Dex has done an amazing job of posting content to it. If you want something featured to it, contact him. You never know what kind of monster will show up there. Links on the sidebar to the right.

We are just a few days away from the Countdown's beginning. Are you ready? If you haven't signed up make sure you do. I will be adding links this coming week to the sidebar. Also, please ask your friends to join. They can join via Instagram, Blogger, TikTok, or YouTube.

See you soon!

Crypt Keeper, Michelle

You can also use #countdowntohalloween & #countdowntohalloween2023 as those are followed by our Instagram to look for things to share with our followers

Our theme this year is old school Graveyard Smash!

Mr. Chad Savage, who designed our first Countdown shirt last year, has volunteered again to help us out and we'll be posting more about that in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, here's a couple of things to get you (more) into the spirit.
