Carnival Post Dates

I’ve been getting a lot of comments about posting the date for when each carnival goes live.  Unfortunately, I can’t do that.  I can post when the deadline is to submit reviews for the carnivals, but since it is up to each individual blogger who actually post the carnivals, I don’t have any control over when they go up.  So I don’t have these dates.  I do ask the hosts to have the post up within a week of the deadline, but since I’m not the one who is physically/virtually hitting the publish button, I can’t guarantee this.  I do have the hosts email me a linke when they do go live, so as soon as I find them, I do post them here.

Help Promote the Carnival

Alright people…what happened?  I’ve been hearing there has been a low turnout for Carnival submissions, why is that?  Have we gotten lost in translation or is something working against us?

The Carnival can really use your help in promoting it.

This is a great community event.  The whole point of the carnival is to help build the book blogging community and to promote each others sites.  It’s really easy to join a carnival – all you have to do is email a link to a review you’ve already written for your own site to the current host by the deadline.  There have already been plenty of carnivals to browse, which you can check out here.

Seriously, this is a great event that is hosted at different blogs each time and I would love to see it flourish and live on.  Dewey would definitely want that.

Here are the next couple of Carnivals that are taking submissions.  If you could spread the love for the Carnival on your own site, it would be greatly appreciated by all of us.
