So Much More Than A "Last-Minute" Carnival!
As it turned out, this is quite a large carnival, with almost 30 posts! We have a dozen posts in the Healing & Therapy category, alone. I'm impressed by that. I always like to see a lot of posts in this area because it gives me hope and inspiration that we survivors are all, indeed, healing. A great reminder. Thanks for your participation, everyone.
And huge kudos go out to Paul for organizing this so well. It's Paul's second time hosting the carnival, and he's a fantastic host. I also love Paul's description and expressed purpose of the carnival in his opening paragraph. He says, "The purpose of the Carnival is to be a place where important posts are shared with others who may not be frequent readers of an author's blog. I, myself, have realized that I cannot follow all the blogs I want to follow, so the monthly Carnival gives me a chance to see what else is out there. There are so many wonderful bloggers and you are all doing a wonderful service not only to yourselves, but to the cause of ending child abuse and recovering from child abuse." This is one of the great reasons why I founded and continue to organize this carnival and try my best to keep it running every month. Very well said, Paul!
Won't you please visit this month's carnival edition, click on the links, read the posts and leave supportive comments for our courageous participating bloggers? Also, I want to thank everyone who has responded thus far to my request for carnival hosts for 2010. I have several monthly slots filled in now, but could still use some host volunteers for the summer and fall months. Be thinking about this opportunity, won't you? Thanks, everyone! You and your continued support are always appreciated!
Oh, and one more thing. I got a few posts that came in after the deadline for today's edition. I want to assure you that these will be saved and passed along to our next host, Issue Knitting, who will organize February's edition on 2/19. So, see ya then!
it's scary to speak up but i feel honored to participate.
thanks again for all you do!! :)
Thanks my friend.
Hope you are well.
Jade: I'm so glad the carnival posts were there for you when you needed them. Thanks for the feedback! I hope you feel a "weight off" from that heavy stuff soon. Take gentle care. xxxx
JBR: Thanks for always stopping by and supporting our carnival and for stopping by with those awesome hugs! xxxxx
Paul: You're welcome and I'm so glad. I like the rotating host, too. I really don't want to host it every month at my own blog like some carnivals do. I guess I just like the original idea: They are called carnivals BECAUSE they travel around...like a carnival moving from town to town.
