All Shows Need a Season Pass

I’ve been a subscriber to cable providers ever since I was old enough to have my own place. I didn’t even know that I had options available to me. For a while I cut the cord using only my PlayStation as a streaming device, as well as a Roku for the television in my bedroom, but once shows like Game of Thrones started becoming produced I knew that I was going to have to go with Direct TV for Colorado Springs to get my fix.

Woodland Animal Bentos & Announcement

Congratulations to Eclectic Lamb for getting the most views for her Native American History bento. This bento will be displayed for the next week in the featured blog widget on the sidebar and she gets a special blog button announcing her win and the bento will be pinned to the Featured Bentos board at Pinterest!

I believe the time has come to end this weekly link up. I’m really concentrating on building my personal blog Diana Rambles. Bento of the Week takes time to set up and monitor each week and I am not getting anything out of it. It seems to be the same few bloggers linking each week, which is great, but I am not seeing much traffic here. I am willing to turn this blog over to someone else if they’d like to take over. If you are interested or have any other ideas for the site, please let me know. If the link-ups end, I will make sure to post a list of other bento friendly link parties that are going on. Thanks for your support! ~Diana
