Carnival's coming to town
Dr Zen has been struck by carny fever -- and not just because he's been spending his Sundays having his head twisted by HBO's brilliant Carnivale -- and will be hosting two of the better blogosphere roundups.
Carnivals are a chance for bloggers to achieve a broader audience for the posts that they are really proud of, which would otherwise remain unread outside their own circle. Hey, we're not all Instapundit, but most of us can write the guy into a cocked hat.
First will be the all-new Carnival of the godless. It's just kicked off and there's some good reading for those with at least a sceptical bent.
I'll be hosting it on March 26 or 27, depending whose calendar you use, which means that during March I'll be accepting submissions at the usual address. This carnival has an atheist bent but that shouldn't discourage the godfearing. You can write about godlessness!
Then in April I'm hosting Carnival of the vanities, the original carnival. This is for general subjects.
I'll be looking to include as many posts as I can stand to link but I believe there are usually many submissions, so it's going to have to be something that kicks the proverbial.
Anyone who's interested should email me the following:
* The name of the blog where the post is from
* The post title.
* The post author's name or handle.
* The post's permanent link.
* A short description of the post.
And hey, don't forget the clowns. I love clowns.
