Carnival Edition September 2008

The first edition of the blog carnival is ready to be viewed. Go to the Carnival Homepage and check out the contributions for the September 2008 Edition.

This gives the opportunity to think about submitting a post for the next edition of the Carnival. The theme for October is "What helped the most – what helped the least". Again, submit your favorite blog-post for the topic – either your own post or someone elses – and we will post it in our October Edition.

What is a Blog Carnival?
A blog carnival is where someone takes the time to find really good blog posts on a given topic, and then puts all those posts together in a blog post called a "carnival".
We think blog carnivals are a great way for bloggers to recognize each other's efforts, organize blog posts around important topics, and improve the overall level of conversation in the blogosphere. Carnivals come in edited "editions", just like magazines or journals. The fact that carnivals are edited (and usually annotated) collections of links lets them serve as "magazines" within the blogosphere, and carnival hosts can earn their readership by providing high quality collections. Since blog carnivals include lots of posts on specific topics, they also serve as a place to connect with those who are expert (or at least highly opinionated!) and those who are interested in that field. (quoted from the blog carnival page)

How to submit a blog post?
Go to the Blog Carnival Homepage and click on the red "Submit your blog article to this carnival" button up the right top. A window will open to ask you for some information. Fill in the 'permalink'. The permalink is a unique URL address for the artice you've chosen. You can usually find it at the end of the article. If you can't find it, you might be able to use the URL in your internet browser field right up the top of your screen. Under 'Remarks' you can write some additional information, for example why you like the post or what it has done for your recovery.
