Hurry! Time Is Running Out For The Fifth Edition of the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse
I had a request from the October host to postpone her hosting date due to health concerns. I had decided to just host it myself, but then I got a little distracted down in Dallas. Fortunately, I've got about ten submissions just sitting in my coffers that I can easily pull up for a quicky carnival. They were submissions that didn't quite make the deadline cut-offs for previous carnivals and ones that just showed up and didn't coincide with a particular carnival edition deadline.
I've got submissions already from: Jumping In Puddles, Emily at Doing It All Again and WW at the PTSD blog. I've also got a referral post from Marcella at Abyss2Hope and then some submissions from a few bloggers new to me.
Anybody else want to jump on in real quick? It would be nice to at least have an even dozen. As usual, the categories for posts are: Survivor Stories, Poetry, "In The News," Healing & Therapy, Aftermath and advocacy & Awareness. Also, since October is Halloween "Fright Night" month, I thought it might be appropriate to have a focus on dealing with fear(s), overcoming fears and phobias...that sort of thing.
Let me know what you think or just get on over to Blog Carnival dot com and use the submission form here. Make sure to provide the permalink to your article and remember: you can simply provide me with a post from the past (you don't have to write something new if you don't want to--I know we don't have a lot of time). I'll make the deadline midnight Sunday (10/29) and I'll get 'em up quick on Monday October 30. (Like I said, I've already got nine or ten ready to go, so it won't be such a stretch.) Thanks, guys!
Are you using an old submission from me? That's ok. Which one is it, so I don't repeat.
So glad you are back and feeling better.
Thanks for the reminder!!! I just sent in a submission for you.
Hope you are feeling better and can talk soon.
I am glad however to see you back.
Blessings my friend.
The submissions are streaming in and I don't think it will be a lean carnival edition at all. THANKS, EVERYBODY! WE ROCK! :)
I hope to get the carnival up okay without any big SNAFU's. My husband tried to install a new DSL set-up this weekend and everything went FUBAR! My computer is, at the moment, totally fried! I'm trying to get caught up using this laptop--I sure hate these little keyboards. So, make an offering to the cyber gremlins, won't you all? ;)
I know it is pass the deadline and that I am not actually submitting.
I would email you if I knew were.
I..., you see I have been wanting to particiate for quite some time now, but I never think that my writting is good enough. I can´t get myself to submit something to be publish. And once again I kept fitting with myself until it was too late.
If you have the time, would you check my blog? There are only two posts so it is not long, and if you think they go well with any of the categories, you could use any them.
By the way, maybe I should identify myself sicne you know me as breeya.
Good luck with the carnival.
