Share your great blog posts with the bi-monthly BritMums carnival

Want to find new blogs and tell the world about your latest posts? Blogging carnivals are great way to do it.

If you are a newbie, it’s a way to get new readers and if your an old hand, it introduces you to new blogs. It’s also loads of fun and really give you the pulse of the parenting blogosphere.

This is how it works: every two weeks a different parent blogger “hosts” the carnival. Bloggers submit posts from the past month.

The rules are one post per blogger and it must be something written in the past four weeks. No commerical or sponsored posts.

The host blogger writes the carnival and the submitters help publicise with a post, link, tweet, etc. It’s up to the host to decide if they want to have a theme.

Clear as mud?

Trust me, this is a great way to create traffic and link love for all sites involved.

We’re always looking for new hosts — just email mummybloggers (at) gmail (dot) com to be put on the list.

Go to the next page for the schedule, to see who to send your latest link to, and to see past carnivals.

    Fab stuff? Is there a procedure for requesting to host a carnival?
    I left several comments on the previous incarnation of this post, and I see that people who requested after me have been given slots… perhaps I could have one in September 2011?
    Thanks,
    Rebecca

    Hi Rebecca, we’ll see about getting you on the list. Look out for an email.

  3. 25 October 2010 / 15:02

    Thanks for reminding me!
    Does that mean people have until 9 Nov to email me entries? (And presumably I have until 9th to paste the links. Am v rusty on the rules!!)

  4. 27 October 2010 / 11:03

    Please add me on there again too!

  5. 28 October 2010 / 07:21

    Make sure you email mummybloggers (at) gmail (dot) com to get on the list

  6. 28 October 2010 / 07:22

    You set your rules, you can post about it. In past experience, most entries come last minute and it is very fun (challenging) getting everyone listed. Good luck!!!

  7. 28 October 2010 / 07:23

    Please email mummybloggers (at) gmail (dot) come to be listed

    I am about to host a carnival and wouldn’t mind someone letting me know, um, what I am supposed to do. I appear to have lost the email with the instructions. Quick! Before everyone thinks I am an idiot! Oh, wait…

    Can we have our name put on the list to host a carnival in the future please (might be many years in the future, but we’d love to do it!)
