Not in my carnival. Unless....
Wow, that was a real Sesame Street moment for me. One of these things is not like the others...
But I digress. According to About.com, a blog carnival is "a blog promotional event where one blogger acts as the host and other bloggers act as participants. The host announces the carnival date and topic then other bloggers who write about that topic on their own blogs write a post related to the blog carnival's topic and publish it on their blogs. Each participating blogger sends the host the link to their specific blog carnival post entry."
What? No funnel cakes?
There's also a site, blogcarnival.com, where you can post the date of the carnival and ask others with related topics to join you. I know, you're thinking: how could all of this debauchery have gone on without my knowledge? and how can my blog become part of the cooking prime rib carnival?
Easy now. We don't want the creepy guy to get too excited. We're just brainstorming.
I'm fully aware that the Vortex community is a diverse bunch. Some of you are all Zombies and chain saws and some engage in quieter pursuits like lurking and enjoying Fabio's tunes (you are so busted, aren't you?). However, just as in life, universal themes happen whether you write poetry or sell t-shirts with funny sayings or send an ecard to your dog. So if anyone is interested in hooking up in the next month to throw a blog carnival, let me know. As host, my first rule will be "No Pitching Tents Jokes"
If carnivals aren't your thing, you can vacay with Fabio once more. We'll save you some funnel cake.
A huge, mega thanks to everyone who popped over to the Chase the Dream site and voted for The Chosen One. Your support means so much. If you haven't had a chance yet, you still have five days before I send the creepy guy to your web address.
