Blog Post Round Up!

I know that many of you have joined our Yahoo bloggers street team group--we are now 39 people strong over there. We have been discussing a better, easier way to bring all of our group writing posts together conveniently. Having a blog host definitely worked out awesome (thanks again Sandra of Joey & Aleethea for taking the reins last week--great, GREAT job! That was a lot of work!)

A short while back, Lis Kidder had suggested using Blog Carnival to do just this. Scroll down a bit to read what the Blog Carnival is all about--I had written a short entry about it recently. Mallory of Dismantled brought up the carnivals again last week on the Yahoo group and she has offered to start us out so that we can try it out. Go to http://blogcarnival.com/bc/cprof_1992.html to see where everyone can submit their posts and see what the theme is. We're going to start next week.

The deadline would be Sunday, July 15 and the first Etsy Bloggers Carnival would be on Monday, July 16. As for themes, we could go with what SixthandElm had suggested a while back and everyone does a tour of their crafting studio/craft space. What does everyone think?

I haven't been part of anything like this but I'm willing to try. It sound like fun.

I set up the carnival, so people can start submitting their posts for this week as soon as they're ready:

How about if each week the person who is hosting the carnival also picks that week's theme? That way we know ahead of time what the themes will be, plus it can be a little more personal for each host?

I created a page where we can keep track of who's hosting each week and what the themes will be:

That sounds great. I wish there was a way to get a conversation sent to me about the theme--I check Etsy first in the morning. But I will try to be dutiful to reading blogging updates.

What a fabulous idea! Even though I've never heard of blogcarnival before - it does sound like a fun place to collaborate. I'm going to go and check it out now. Count me in! :D

Hey all, I was so wiped out from yesterday I haven't been online at all!

Mallory--WOW, all I can is, you have gone above and beyond! Thanks, so SO much. And yes, I agree it is a great idea to have to host choose the theme. I think this is gonna be awesome.
