A 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.
