What is a Blog Carnival

by Kay~Kacey on 12/20/2007

Have you heard of Blog Carnivals and wondered what the heck people were talking about? A blog carnival is a list of links to blog posts on a certain subject, submitted by a variety of bloggers. The host of the carnival then collects the links and does a blog post with all the links to the articles that make it into the carnival. You can read more about blog carnivals over at DandelionBlog. Suzanne wrote a whole post explaining what they are. Sometimes carnivals are ongoing, and sometimes they are a one shot deal.

The fun news? We’re holding a Carnival of Romance Writers over on DandelionBlog. Our first carnival will be posted on January 20th. We’ll take submissions until January 15th. If you have a great blog post about the Romance Genre, first sale stories, how to handle rejection, or any topic related to Romance writing, you can submit a post. This should be fun! We’ll keep a link in our sidebar to the submission page for the carnival.

Blog carnivals are a fun way to read a lot of interesting blog posts on a subject that interests you. You’ll find blogs you like that you haven’t discovered before. I’ve found a Knitting Carnival. This is their home page over on the Blog Carnival website. Or how about organizing? This takes you to their actual carnival hosted on the blog Browse the List of carnivals or search google for your “favorite subject” +carnival.
