Great Ideas Start Here

blog: a regularly updated web page, typically run by an individual or organization, containing relevant thoughts and ideas.

This week I was doing some research for my blog and stumbled upon the term “blog carnival”. Immediately thoughts of red and white tents and corn dogs on a stick popped into my head, but what would a blog have to do with a carnival? Well, nothing. A blog carnival is a collection of blogs organized like a magazine. They are dedicated to a specific topic and published on a regular schedule, often weekly or monthly. Each edition of a blog carnival is in the form of a blog article that contains permalinks to other blog articles on the particular topic.

A blog carnival is an opportunity for blog writers to share their best posts in a community of like-minded posters and readers. It’s not always easy to build up a following of loyal readers, but here you can join in with an established site that has already built a following for you.

Finding a blog carnival to join is easy. A great reference is a site like blog carnival where many different choices are available.
