Second Edition: Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse
I included one post each for every blogger who submitted to this carnival with the following exceptions: I received one entry--from a blogger who was completely new to me--that I considered spam, because the blog showed nothing about children or abuse that I could find; the other entry was about an adult rape and I encouraged the submitter to link something that was about a child under the age of 18 and/or send the adult rape post to Marcella's blog Carnival Against Sexual Violence at Abyss2Hope.
Since many of you submitted mutiple posts and I've got other bloggers who are now interested, I've decided to do a Second Edition of the Carnival Against Child Abuse. It will post on Wednesday, July 19, 2006. The deadline for submissions is Monday, July 17, 2006. This information should now be up at www.blogcarnival.com.
I've also decided that we should do like the traditional carnivals do--be a true, traveling carnival that travels around from blog to blog. I've got one interested blogger who thinks the third edition (August?) is something she'd be willing to host. Any other interested hosts out there?
Mysti, I'm in much the same position as you presently, waiting desperately to hear about our loan so we can buy our new house!
I am committed to August for the third blog carnival. I'm not home right now, so I'll email you next week.
Beachwriter: Thanks for much for stopping by to visit the carnival! I appreciate that support.
I'm excited for you and Mysti on your new homes--that's so cool! SD--I'll e-mail you with what's involved for your carnival host. Thanks, awesome survivor-thrivers!
My eating disorder has gone into overdrive (well, somewhat overdrive, I'm not purging or anything like that,just restricting a bit and some body image crapola.
Not sure if it's this stuff that's causing it, or other issues in my life ...
I deeply appreciate this wellness web of abuse awareness, cathartic writing, and survivor support.
As a sister survivor with a new, fledgling blog, I hope to be a part of the second edition, health willing.
Peace and wholeness to all.
If you have time, please leave me a comment too. It's lonely out there in the new blog world!
I sure would like to connect to other SA survivors that are also cancer survivors. I know we're out there in large numbers, and I would love to cyber-meet to connect on that level.
If you know survivors that are what I call "double whammy" survivors or can put a "shout out" from me for SA and cancer survivors, I would be very grateful for the chance to connect and share experiences.
The cancer surgery and treatments were acutely triggering for me, bringing to surface a flood of emotions and associations with the abuse.
I haven't blogged about that yet,(I can barely bear to think about it), but I think it's time to release it. Perhaps this will be my Carnival topic, as it is -not- addressed in cancer support groups.
Thank you for being here.
