The Best of the Mommy Bloggers Carnival call for hosts and posts

Share Button

Carnival_51A carnival is a blogging event and "The Best of the Mommy Bloggers Carnival" takes place every two weeks and features recent posts from the cream of the mommy blogger community.

This is how it works: every two weeks a different mommy blogger “hosts” the carnival. The blogger community submits their best post from the past month — this could be your most popular post, something that has done well on StumbleUpon or Digg, or one of which you are particularly proud.

The rules are one post per blogger and it must be something written in the past four weeks.

The host blogger then compiles the carnival. Check out the ones below for examples.

All of the submitters help publicize in some way — Twitter, Facebook, a blog post, a link…

This is a great way to create traffic and link love to all sites involved.

I will organise and keep the schedule on A Modern Mother (below).

I am looking for hosts — please email me at amodernmother (at) gmail (dot) com if you would like to host a carnival.

    Scratch what I said about me putting it at blog carnival. I entered it and a ton of people signed up for it so I ended up having to put one on my site to be fair to them. I’m just now starting to understand how that site works!

    Of course, that url is wrong. It’s http://www.yogamamasatsangha.blogspot.com!

    Hey there, just letting you know that the call for entries is up at Yoga Mama Satsangha!: http://www.yogamamasatsangha.blogger.com.

    I submitted it to blog carnival when we did it and when we have our carnival, I submit all of our materials, so it’s hosted at both places :)

    An easier way to organize a blog carnival is through BlogCarnival.com – I’m not affiliated with the site, but I’ve both participated in and created blog carnivals through the site and it keeps everything in the same format and organized really well. Instead of having folks e-mail their entries to each host, you might want to set it up through there.

    Count me in. Just give me a date. And probably a reminder..tee hee.
