Happy Birthday to you, British Mummy Blogger Carnival!

The BMB Carnival is now hosted here.

Our little blogging carnival is now one! How quickly we have grown. The past 25 carnivals have featured more than 750 posts from over a hundred bloggers. Wow. That's a lot of whinging.

The official info is below. I've moved the carnival to A Modern Mother. Please note we're always looking for new hosts, email me at amodernmother (at) gmail (dot) com to sign up. Being inundated with 50 emails 24 hours before a carnival is quite an exhilerating experience one should do miss!

A carnival is a blogging event and "The Best of the British Mummy Bloggers Carnival" takes place every two weeks and highlights the best posts from the British mummy blogging community.

This is how it works: every two weeks a different mummy blogger “hosts” the carnival. Bloggers submit their best post from the past month — this could be your most popular post, one that has struck a chord and attracted lots of comments, or just one that they feel is their personal best. NO COMMERCIAL POSTS PLEASE. And please do not allow a company to sponsor a carnival.

The rules are one post per blogger and it must be something written in the past four weeks. Oh, and you must be British (by birth or passport or just lived here so bloody long you feel British!)

The host blogger picks the best 25 (more if they have enough energy!) and writes the carnival and the submitters publicise with a post, link, tweet, etc. It's up to the host to decide if they want to have a theme.

Clear as mud?

Trust me, this is a great way to create traffic and link love for all sites involved.

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

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

    Hi Susanna
    I would like to host a carnival. Could you put me down for one. I should have got the hang of it by then.
    Thanks

    Thanks,
    Rebecca

    Hi Susanna, I am more than happy to take the next space for a canival – cheers

    I’ll happily take one of the empty slots. Posts to Glowstars@Glowstars.net and pretty please someone remind me closer to the time. Vx

    I think I’ll have a first go at entering one of these carnivals. I’ve often seen them mentioned around Blogland, but never actually taken part. Thanks!

    I’m up for hosting again this year, let me know if you have a free spot

  10. 20/12/2009 / 23:32

    I popped by to see if you needed hosts, since I may have actual free time over the holidays, but it looks like a fine army of volunteers! Feel free to stick me on the list for sometime in 2010 if you have a gap though.

    Wow – such a long waiting list I would love to have a go at hosting a best of BMB carnival.
    Thanks. x

    Happy Birthday! I LOVE Carnival it’s a genius idea. Happy to host it any time you need! x

  13. 22/10/2009 / 12:13

    This is a great idea, count me in, it looks like you have a long waiting list!

  14. 22/10/2009 / 10:12

    Happy birthday to you, etc etc (consider yourself lucky you can’t actually hear me sing it). That’s a lot of posts, luckily far more reliable ones than anything to do with the Royal Mail. Thanks for all the great reading.

  15. 22/10/2009 / 10:01

    What a brilliant job you are doing, Susanna. Feel free to sign me up for April 27th. I’m happy to host another one!
