Blog Carnival

29 Nov


Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers is hosting a Blog Carnival December 5th. Here is what the site says:

Thank you for your interest in Homeschool Showcase: Where the spotlight’s on you. The Homeschool Showcase is a blog carnival that spotlights great, hands-on projects, encouraging and inspiring blog posts, and all the just plain fun ways that homeschooling families live, learn, and celebrate life together.

If you have never participated in a Blog Carnival, this is a great time to start. If you are not familiar with what a Blog Carnival is, here is what the site says:

A Blog Carnival is a particular kind of blog community. There are many kinds of blogs, and they contain articles on many kinds of topics. Blog Carnivals typically collect together links pointing to blog articles on a particular topic. A Blog Carnival is like a magazine. It has a title, a topic, editors, contributors, and an audience. Editions of the carnival typically come out on a regular basis (e.g. every Monday, or on the first of the month). Each edition is a special blog article that consists of links to all the contributions that have been submitted, often with the editors opinions or remarks.

There is so much stuff in the blog-o-sphere, just finding interesting stuff is hard. If there is a carnival for a topic you are interested in, following that carnival is a great way to learn what bloggers are saying about that topic. If you are blogging on that topic, the carnival is the place to share your work with like-minded bloggers.

Blog Carnival is the place to come to find carnivals you are interested in, to submit your blog articles to carnivals where they belong, and to organize and maintain carnivals.

If you decide to participate in the Carnival, leave a comment so I can watch for your post. Happy Blogging!

    Most homeschoolers are very involved in outside activities. I just think folks who are not really connected to any homeschoolers don’t really understand the issue.
