You're More Than Good Enough
I've gotten about a dozen submissions already for our first anniversary of the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse. I can't believe we've been raising awareness through this carnival for a whole year already. Great for us!!
I want you to know that any submission that is appropriate will be included in this anniversary carnival edition. I've had people ask me if I think their posts are okay, worthy or good enough for inclusion. I'm telling you, if you have a heart-felt wish to tell your truth about your abuse, share a poem, healing and therapy tips or an item from the news, advocate for kids or raise awareness in any way, your post is more than good enough!
The only thing I won't include is any kind of porn (oh yes, I've gotten submissions like this, and I don't think it's funny), obvious spam or posts that I would refer to another carnival as more appropriate and on-topic for them instead of us.
If you've ever thought about submitting to the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse, now is the time to do it. It's our anniversary! Come join us! You can submit using the form here.
The deadine is a week from today: Tuesday, June 19. I'll post our anninversary carnival edition on Friday, June 22, 2007, right here at the Survivors Can Thrive! blog.
Keepers and I want to submit some articles and blogs for the anniversary carnival, can you tell me if I have previously submitted my articles on living with a multiple from the SO viewpoint? If not I will submit them
thank you for making us aware of the 1 year anniversary and CONGRATULATIONS!
peace and blessings

Does the spelling and punctuation matter? Do creative writing skills and perfect use of adjectives make a difference when someone is speaking about how they feel? No. What matters is speaking. I get insight from reading other blogs. It gets me to think about where I was and where I am now and where I want to go. I read, not for writing style, but for connection.
John & Keepers: I'll tell you the same thing I told Dr. Deb in an e-mail about a possible "repeat" post she wants to use: I didn't find this post in a quick scan of the editions that I organized and hosted myself, but I don't know about the guest hosts. HOWEVER, it's an important message and I think it's worth repeating. I think what I'll do is have an anniversary category called "BEST OF" for any repeat posts. Sound good? ;)
We sent in 2, a blog from today and an older article, let me know if the submissions came in okay.
I will try to get around and send reminders to folks I haven't received from and send out e-mails to thank folks who have submitted as soon as Father's Day is over (ugh).
