You've got flair!

GNMParents is hosting a blog carnival called The Festival of Family Flair, and invites everyone to submit their great ideas for family crafts, activities, and the ingenious (some might say desperate) ways in which we find adult time for ourselves. I admit I'm still not totally clear on what a blog carnival is, but it sounds like fun.

The Carnival of Personal Finance (http://carnivalofpersonalfinance.com/) is a good example of a blogging Carnival. (Not to mention pretty darn good...)

Asha,
Thanks for sharing with your readers about GNMParents' new carnival! Blog carnivals are how I got "into" blogging myself, not knowing the difference between a blog and a website before reading the Carnival of Homeschooling.

Blogcarnival.com has some great basic information about the carnivals: "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."

Check out their FAQ section if you want to learn more. :-D
